DIY bride here too 🙂 I thoroughly enjoyed all my projects, but to be completely honest, there were a few projects that didn’t get used on the day. like my Pom Pom garlands – I laboured over those for hours – just CBF putting them out on the day lol

loved my DIY favours, menus, centrepieces, cake signs & card box though 🙂

@roadside tom:  Sounds beautiful! Labors of love for sure. I’d love to DIY a lot for our wedding, but I’m not sure if I can swing it!

@KellyLouise:  Aw, you didn’t use your pom-pom garland! May I ask why? We are planning on making one because my FH just LOVED the look. It sure looks like a ton of work!

@PumpkinCheesecake:  We had planned on hanging them at the front of the bridal table, but when we went to help set up, the staff had done the tablecloths a bit weird.. well, not weird, just not what I’d expected. I just didnt think it would work, so I left them. It was just going to be a bit too hard to try and hang them right. I do kinda regret it though 🙁 but we were SO rushed.

We went crazy… but we DID save a lot of money on the way.

  • Invitations
  • Card basket
  • All signage, with the exception of one that our friend made
  • Arranged all reception centerpieces, including a this neat scrapbook page that looked like lace, which we spray painted to be the right color
  • Arranged all cocktail hour centerpieces (they were much smaller and we just used leftover flowers)
  • 7 bouquets
  • 5 bouts
  • Simple bouquets used for every other chair going down the aisle
  • Carnation Pomanders that hung on the gazebo
  • Designed, printed and cut all menus
  • Folded all of the napkins to fit around the menus
  • Painted some of the picture frames for the picture table
  • Designed, printed and cut all placecards
  • Designed and printed table numbers, then glued and cut corks for them to fit in
  • String balls that were hung from the trees outside for cocktail hour
  • DIY’d a few of the favors themselves, as each table had different favors. This included clip on ties, clip on bowties, fortune tellers, and probably more I can’t remember
  • Put together all 100 favor bags
  • Mr and Mrs signs that got hung on the head table

I’m sure I missed a couple. Basically, we went nuts. Glad we did, but man, am I glad to have free time again!

Oh boy did I DIY.  I was a crazy DIYer for my wedding (which was earlier this year)

I did

  • invitations
  • Bouquets 
  • Boutonierres 
  • Centerpieces for 1/2 the tables 
  • Aisle decor
  • Giant paper flower garland above ceremony site
  • Monogram “guest book”  (giant wooden monogram that guests signed)
  • table runners
  • silverware pouches
  • table numbers
  • card box
  • loose paper flowers everywhere
  • bolero (okay my mom made this one, but I designed it)
  • I made a hair clip but ended up using a different one because of the metal color 
  • candy buffet
  • bridal shoe clips
  • Mr & Mrs chair signs
  • Bridesmaid gifts (Glittered wine glasses with monogram wine clips

I THINK thats it… there are probably more I just can’t think of them at the moment
