In the year that I planned my wedding I slowly here and there bought all the little things… or all of the little things i needed to start a DIY project.  I paid for my wedding myself so that really helped me spread my money farther… because (im a hairdresser) and honestly my tip money paid for porbably 80% of my wedding.

LOl I made ummm everything pretty much … Which I dont reccommend unless you truely have a small budget.  But me and my husband had a deal… I pay for the wedding… He pays for the honeymoon

A few of my family members suprised me though and volunteered to cook for the wedding and paid for %85 percent of it !

I made all of my floral arrangments inlcuding centerpieces bouquets and boutineers

I made a petal runner that went down each side of my aisle

I gathered all my music and did  a mix for our frist dance ( choreographed Our dance)

I did customized clay cake  topper

I did my hairpiece and veil as well as my daughters and all 4 of my bridesmaids

I did my Invitations

Wrote our ceremony start to finish

all the signage

my card box

Fans

Favors

Candy Bar

 I did 3 peoples hair and 2 other peoples makeup on my wedding day UUUGGGHHH! (not to mention i gave all of my groomsmen a free hair cut 2 days before)

and about a million other things that I am sure I wish i would not have done LOL .. and we set it all up pretty much our selves the morning of! BAD MISTAKE! MAJOR STRESS!

Honestly the only services we paid people to do was

1. Our DJ (which i regret she was crappy & I was highly dissapointed)

2. Our Photographers ( TOTALLY WORTH EVERY PENNY)

3. We had a Shaved Ice Stand from a local company cater (huge hit)

4. Our cake lady.. but I made her job easy because I drew out the design on paper for her all she had to do was make the cake and copy it to the best of her ability

Everything else was unfortunately almost 98% done by me alone.. My groom was more help to me than anyone else… Everyone volunteered in the begining and said they would help but when it came down to it … none of them did anything as far as helping DIY

I totally reccomend if you plan to DIY anything yourself…. Grab a notebook  sit down make a list of all that you want to DIY.. then Break that list up individually . another page per project then write down everything you need to make each project .. and there add any inspirational pictures  or ideas you might have

I would also reccomend making a list of all the Things you want to buy or think of that you want to buy as you think of them… so you dont end up forgetting about the little things
