Anything that has a small number. Invitations, definitely time consuming. Favors? Probably time consuming.

Think of things that are done in smaller quantities. Signs for various things, a guestbook, bathroom baskets, table numbers. An escort card display could be pretty easy depending on the complexity of what you’d like, though I’d recommend having someone else do the cards themselves. Any items you plan on using for the ceremony (unity candles, sand ceremony etc).

I really want to make these programs that I saw on Weddingbee, but there are only 9 weeks until the wedding and I am DIY-challenged as it is, plus I have work….and 140 or so programs! I don’t know if I’ll do it but I’m going to try.

Erindesmar: escort cards are the cards guests pick up as they walk into your reception hall with their name that direct them at which table to sit. See attached photo. (source)

Just to clarify (in case you were thinking of place cards) Escort cards are picked up at the entrance and direct you at which table to sit, place cards are already on the tables and guests must find their assigned places.

Ok i’m very late on this. . .but. . . . if you are having a small wedding and are simplistic in style ; centerpieces can be easy, , it just depends what you want in them (EX: Flowers vs. Candles ect) I am having a small wedding and i made my centerpieces in about 8 hrs collectivley. Also, if your wedding is larger you could always spiff up the ring-bearer pillows and flower-girl baskets with your own unique touch. I purchased plain pillows and baskets and just added some ribbon & flowers and they only took me about an hour to do. . . . anyway just some ideas. . .hope it helped

I’ve had friends who have gottem married and for their DIY projects they just had a party where a bunch of us girls went to help out with the inivitations.  We kinda had an assembly line…one person cut…next glue…next tie ribbon…and so on.  It’s fun!!!
