I have already done: 

  • save the dates

  • invitations (from a kit but with some tweaks)

  • dresses/sashes for my 2 flower girls (I sewed them)

  • my veil/headpiece 

I will be making (but haven’t finished)

  • favors (boxes full of candy tied with a ribbon)

  • table numbers

  • ring bear pillow

  • escort cards

  • card box

I am probably forgetting some stuff, but that’s all I can think of right now! Oh and I don’t know if it counts, but I am cutting pieces of fabric for my guests to sign and then after the wedding, I will be sewing them into a quilt!

We had a good number of DIY projects, but thankfully I had a lot of willing helpers, too 🙂

Escort Cards, seating display, bouquets and bouts, brooch bouquet, bridesmaids’ gifts (encrusted wine glasses, braided scarf), groomsmen’s gifts (etched mugs), ring bearer’s pillow, restored my grandma’s wedding jacket and lace pieces, dyed her crinoline to use with my late-night dress, glitter sole shoes, honey stick favors, rigging up lanterns to hang on pews and to use as centerpieces, and memorial candle display.

Those are the ones that I can think of off the top of my head, but I think I may have DIY PTSD. Haha!
