Do it! You will be so happy when the week before the wedding is not filled with crafting!

When you feel the inspiration to create then do so. better to get it all done early than to run out of steam/ time/ whatever else closer to the date.

My wedding isn’t until June 2017 and I’m planning on starting some of the stuff this summer. I’d rather spread out some of the financial “ouch” and I’d rather focus some of the other things once the day gets closer (cake, bridesmaids,menu, etc.). But I’m also doing a TON of DIY.

It’s such a good idea to get things done in advance, it will really alleviate your stress leading up to the wedding and you won’t feel like you have to rush through things at the last minute

I would totally do it ASAP if you have great ideas already! Honestly I keep putting my DIY stuff off .. Three months to go and I cringe thinking about doing them now, haha! Get it done and it’ll be off your shoulders. Plus it’s fun and feels so darn good, why not!

Its never too early! I’m getting married in October as well and have already started a few DIY projects. I’m hoping to have everything done well ahead of the wedding…less stress that way!

I’m also getting married in October and started my dig projects about 3 months ago! It helps to not make everything in such a short time, you’ll get more stressed that way! I’ve been making my stuff and putting it in totes!

When DIY-ing it is best to start as early as possible!  my wedding is in September and I want to be able to enjoy my summer so I have started my DIY projects already.  Also there is plenty of time for figure out solutions to any problems that may arise.

I don’t think there’s such a thing as too early! I’m planning on starting what I can as soon as I can if it is feasible! Next project – dip dying hundreds of balsa flowers! Plus, DIY always seems to take much longer than you think.

steny03:  NO it’s not silly!! You’ll be so glad you did later!! My wedding is a week from today and we’re scrambling a little on some last minute projects. On the flip side, there are a few others that I did early and am so glad I did otherwise the porjects I have left would seem so overwhelming.

Also, anything that involves paint… the sooner, the better! Or sewing. Things that require some skill to get them right are the one’s I’d tackle first.

Final note… who’s going to judge you for starting early anyway?? It’s not like you said you’re wedding is three years away, then I’d say well you might change your mind on some things.
