Wow that’s a lot of projects!

I did my own STD magnets using the pictures my photographer took during our e-session. I enjoyed designing them but printing the addresses on the envelopes was tedious. I realized I didn’t want to do my own invitations.

I started buying some supplies to do the centerpieces but otherotherwise I don’t know how much other DIY I’ll do.

I have found that some things were not cheaper to DIY than buy.

We DIY our invites and I bought and resold table clothes and runners. Some decorations.

Also, I was willing to pay for less stress and more time and better quality for some things. I didnt want to ask people to set up or take down centerpieces, or serve food and wash dishes so that was worth paying for. Certainly shopped around and got a great deal! 

I do wish I had looked harder for a better priced dress, but I didnt have the time.

We did our own invitations, card box, centerpieces, boutonnieres, bouquets, favours, sweet table & my shoes. Since you mentioned shoes, here are mine:

A bit of lace & fabric glue goes a long way. I have no regrets about any of my projects. We got a ton of compliments & it gave me 100% control over every little detail. It truly was our wedding!

Well, I’m the nutcase who decided I could make a chuppah (wedding canopy) that required 8-foot French seams without a pattern, and 40 years after I’d last sewn anything.  😉

I have pictures of all my DIY projects, and links to instructions, here.
