@mrsedwardslpn:  I basically just bought some millinery netting at the fabric store, glued pearls to it, and added bobby pins to the ends. It was a little more work than that, but that was the gist of it.

I’m a waiting bee Embarassed but I already have a fairly good idea of what I want to DIY:

Dress (yes, I’m a seamstress)

Veil/headpiece, maybe

Some part of my man’s outfit– maybe a shirt

Invitations and other paper matter

Signs

Favors

Cake 

Decorations

Maybe flowers if our local florist (super talented and is an old friend of my SO’s) is too expensive and it’s a time of year when there are enough local flowers

I think our engagement will be on the longer side. Just the dress is going to be a huge amount of work– I can’t wait!! 🙂

@mrsedwardslpn:  Nope. I used a hot glue gun. I’m not sure you could even sew millinery netting.

I drew the line in weird places for my diy versus my purchases, some of what I bought fell within my abilities…I just didn’t want to do it…no idea why: 

 

What I bought: 

~The Mrs. X wire hanger

~Bridesmaid Clutches

~Pom Pom Tissue Flower Balls (this is a super easy diy but for some reason I just didn’t want to diy this beyond pulling apart the layers before I hang it)

 

 

What I did/am doing

~Ladder Ball and Corn Hole set

~Some overlays (although I may no longer do them for reception, I’m concerned the decor will be too busy)

~All paper (STDs, Invitations, RSVPs, Menus, etc…)

~Bulletin Boards/signs (one large bulletin board for the program, one for the escort cards, one for the cocktail hour menu, and a large sign to show everyone where everything is). 

~Ribbon streamers (for the chairs, ceremony arbor, and the wands)

~Wooden fan favors (these are kinda unnecceasry and I kind of regret doing them, they were the first project I did when I got caught up in the wedding excitement)

~Card Box
