I only have personalized hangers for myself and my girls and rough CP mock-ups done (these are 1/2 DIY) but excited how those projects came out!

We are also hunting for birch branches about 1-2in in diameter on hikes to cut slits for seating cards, but that’s about the extent of Fiance and my DIY abilities.  I wish I were crafty like you all!

We don’t have a lot of the projects DONE yet, but I’m doing the centerpieces on my own. All 40 of them haha. I’ll post pics soon in the October board since my wedding is fall themed.

I also had an old coworker design our invitations, and we will be assembling them with some ribbon on our own.

My future aunt-in-law is crafty, so I’m hoping to  ask her to make pew bows and work in some fall leaves or berries.

At our venue we’re allowed to bring in our own liquor. Not sure if that counts as a DIY thing haha.

In the PA region cookie tables are big, and friends and family will be baking and bringing all sorts of cookies to the reception – rather than having them catered.

Oh, and we’re doing our programs too.

To DIY, invitations, centerpieces, tissue paper poms, programs, guestbook and maybe favors. I also might make some crystal earrings and some other jewelry. I think that is it. I finally decided on an invitation design, but still have yet to make it. I am working on centerpieces and tissue poms and am about halfway done with those My mom is going to do up the guestbook and still have yet to decide on favors. I will do what I can do, but didn’t want to overwhelm myself with a lot of DIY projects.

Reading all this is reminding of all the things I have left to do! Veil, cardbox, favor labels, programs, table numbers, escort cards…and I’m sure there is something I’m forgetting…

@chittychittybanebane: I love your aisle decor and your card box! What are the pew/ aisle decorations made with?

OP and others: We’ve diy-ed save the dates, wedding website, centerpieces… we still have to DIY programs, aisle decor, and paper flowers for the bridesmaids and groomsmen. Can’t think of anything else right now, but know there’s probably more…

Hi Ladies,  Your projects look so good!

So far I have DIY’d my cake topper, jumping broom, wedding map, save the dates, serving set, glittered my reception shoes, hanger, and aisle runner and my rehearsal dinner invitate that I cannot find a picture of right now.
