I’m doing very little DIY, but take heart! You still have a lot of time left. Are any of your friends/family helping you?

That doesn’t look THAT bad to me if you have a fair bit of time not dedicated to work in the next three months.  Definitely a lot of DIY though.  I would suggest getting an invite assembly party going in the next little while.  I did this, and it made it go really quickly and more fun.  I pre-cut/printed all the pieces and had my friends together with (a little) wine to make it a fun day.

@Take The Reins:  We are date twins 🙂    My suggestion is do one thing at a time, prioritize your list and set yourself a timeline to get each project done and then take a breath and have fun.   Oh and for paper crafts I LOVE the XYRON roller glue, no muss no fuss, just fun.

The ring bearer box, tea lights and tears of joy seem to be the simpliest projects so if I had to choose, I’d pick those to tackle first. Then I’d get on the invitatons! I love DIY and you have very cute inspirations. Time is on your side tho…you can definitely finish before your wedding. 

I DIYed my candy buffet, including the candy baggies, banner & sign, my card box, cake cutter, money rose toss bouquet, table numbers, Out of Towner welcome boxes, and dress hangers for me and the BMs. They all turned out great (at least I think so!).

Pretty much our entire wedding was DIY and DH’s help made things so much easier!  Starting early is definitely wise too.  I made it my goal to be done all of my projects (except the names on the escort cards) a month before the wedding and we were pretty much successful.  Other last minute things came up, so I am glad I wasn’t still worried about projects!

I am having these panic attacks as well. Only thing is our wedding is in 54 days and I can’t even think to get started on the DIY things until next week. And even then I won’t have a lot of time. Come Feb 27 I will have a lot more time though as the whole month of february we are traveling quite a bit.

UGH… I still have to figure out some ideas of what we want to do, I love your ring box however.

I haven’t started to many DIY projects just yet but I would be very interested in how yours turn out. Your theme is stunning.

They turned out great! Best of luck with the rest of them. I know I totally stressed about all of my DIY projects in the final months before the wedding so its good you are starting them now.
