I love those hankies you give to the groom’s mom that say, “thank you for raising your son to be the man of my dreams.  love, -your name-, -your wedding date-“.  Since I can’t sew at all, I think I might order a custom one through Etsy.  They are pretty affordable and super cute.  I think I may order one of those custom cake toppers too, with the bride & groom’s name.  Good ol Etsy!

I had custom kissing balls and bouquets made. I had a vision in my head and could have made them myself but I am SUPER OCD (so I probably would not have finished them all in time).

^Red and white roses in kissing balls (real touch/faux flowers), blingy floral pens in centers of some flowers, damask handle, and a few black feathers throughout! I did not want any greenery either.

I am thinking about a custom bling cake topper too! Another thing since I am like OCD is I MAY attempt making my own card box (I do not see the point of paying $100) but then again I may get pissed off and destroy it! LOL

I just finished my place cards and that is the number one thing I should have paid someone to do. It wasn’t worth my time! Lol

I got the hankies for my mom, and Mr. O’s mom. No way can I sew, haha, so I just ordered them. I also ordered a custom hanger. While I know that I could make one that would look okay, I’d rather just order it and know it’s going to look great!

I need to have my garter custom made but I haven’t found my fabric yet.

I did a lot of DIY, but if I’d had the resources, I would have loved a custom wedding dress made for me. That’s too big a deal for this little crafter to take on.

I had pretty much everything custom-made or made it myself, and before and after the wedding I get a lot of my dresses and corsets custom-made.

@MangoLover4LifeI say go for it! They are very time consuming and I have had many brides ask me to make theirs. If they are reasonably priced…I say DO IT!! πŸ™‚

Any pics of what you are wanting done?
