DIY can be enough but IMO you’re just going to end up buying a lot of products for the day of, and it will probably just be easier to go with a professional. Have you considered airbrush makeup? It looks very smooth and feels lighter than traditional powders or liquids.

If you don’t normally wear a lot of makeup, then I say, be as close to your usual self as possible on your wedding day. Even out your skintone with some light foundation, maybe just a tinted moisturizer, and set it with some powder. Add some rosy blush, since the flash on the cameras will likely wash some of your natural coloring out. Put on a tiny bit of liner, some mascara, and maybe a tinted chapstick this time.

I rarely wear make up in my day to day life. I DIY mine, but wore more than I usually would. I went to Clinique and found a good foundation and concealer and I watched a few tutorials on how to apply eyeshadow. I was planning to have MAC do my makeup, but after I left the trial feeling like a drag queen, I decided that wasn’t a good idea. I wore: a good moisturizer, clinique even better foundation, concealer, powder, blush, eyeliner, eye shadow, a good waterproof mascara and lipstick which came as a free gift with my clinique purchase. Here’s what I looked like:

and here is what I look like without makeup.

I think you need to wear a bit more makeup than you are describing to avoid looking washed out in pics.  I would splurge for a pro because a natural look is very hard to achieve with makeup!  Here are some inspiration pics:
