The only thing I’d warn you about would be trying to DIY too much at the last moment.  For example, if you’re trying to do the mani/pedis and the bouquets and the decorations and the cake, all in the day before the wedding, you are going to run out of time and/or be falling asleep during the ceremony.

Beyond that, though, knock yourself out!  (Well, not literally.)  As for us, here is what we DIYed (links are to descriptions/instructions):

We’re DIYing all of the decor, flowers, and paper items.  It’s been a lot of fun, so far.  My FH is a whiz with photoshop – so he’s been all over the paper items, invites, Save-The-Date Cards, maps, et al.  He’s got great penmanship, too, so he’s been caligraphing our envelopes!  I, on the other hand, am a novice sewer and an avid crafter…  so I’ve been making table runners, boutonnieres, a sash for my dress, and a ton of decor stuff.  We’re defintely low budget (keeping it under $3000) and creative, easy-going people…  so I think all the homemade touches will add to the casualness of our affair perfectly!

Good luck with all your planning!
