I´m thinking about doing my invitations, pomanders, fluffy balls (I don´t remember their name), canvas picture desing and framing, photobook desing for guest to sign, decoration of my cupcake tree, and table decoration (not centerpieces, pictures and text around the centerpieces to tell our story), flowergirl dress sash/decoration and garter
I don´t know if this is too much but I have still 6 months!
Share your projects and ideas!

I DIY’d the following – save the dates, invitations, guestbook (wish tree tags), programs, placecards, reserved seating signs, card box, menus…I think that is it.

Umm, let’s see… Here’s the current list of DIY projects:
- Writing our own ceremony
- CD for all our ceremony music
- Baskets with signs for programs, kippot, clips, dancing shoes, props for "photobooth," etc.
- Card box
- Size labels for dancing shoes
- Chuppah (wedding canopy)
- 50 paper lanterns
- Wedding cake
- Signature nonalcoholic beverage
- All set-up (linens, plates, flatware, food service stations, chocolate fountain, cake, etc.) for the reception
- Breakfast the morning after the wedding
And this doesn’t count things that are being done for us by friends–e.g., dinner the night before, guestbook, photo album, and ketubah framing.

- Wedding: September 2009 - Catholic ceremony, reception at local armory
I’ve been DIYing essentially everything. Table runners, clutches for bridesmaids, boutonierres, flowergirl pomander, save the dates, invitations, veil, table numbers, favors, escort cards, programs, etc. etc. etc.
My best advice would be this — do NOT procrastinate! If you want to make everything yourself, start as soon as you can! You don’t want rushing to get things done at the last minute when you should be enjoying yourself!

The only DYI I did was address the invitations. LOL
I even got one of my students to print my print-your-own invitations. He had a laser printer and I didn’t. Ah the things students do for brownie points!
I am all thumbs when it comes to crafty things.

Let’s see, we’re doing a LOT of DIY: STD, Invites, Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts, Groomsmen gifts, Ceterpieces, Ceremony decor, flowers, programs, place cards…I think that’s all, at least for now, there could be more, but we’ll see how I do with those things first!

I’m sure there is more, but I can’t think of it right now. Every night is a project and our whole life is DIY these days!

I am in the process of DIY’ing our invites. I’m going to do our programs, thank you cards (hopefully), either flower wands or pomanders for the flower girls, and possibly centerpieces.

I’ll *try* to DIY 300 cupcakes if the venue will allow it, because most upscale bakeries just don’t stand up to my approval taste-wise (from scratch w/organic high quality ingrediants) and I’m a huge cook/baker, so I have tons of perfect cupcake recipes and frequently bake in large quatities, and DIY favors (either chocolate truffles or cookies). Also some decor, like lights, and maybe centerpieces.
