Wow so many amazing DIY projects in here! Everything looks great — especially all those handmade signs! I know our signs didn’t turn out nearly as awesome as the ones in this thread. We DIYed all of our paper goods (save-the-dates, fan programs, invitations, rehearsal invites, and thank you cards), the lavender toss bags for after the ceremony, I DIYed all the centerpieces by collecting milk glass, tarnished silver trays and vanity mirrors. We DIYed the aisle baskets, bridesmaid bouquets, and the bouts with baby’s breathe ordered in bulk to save money. I also made all the signs around our reception and bookmarks that were a small wedding favor placed at each place setting.
I’m going to make a details post soon and you can see all of our awesome wedding day details and DIY!

I DIY everything. All paper, flowers, decor and “Will you be my bridesmaid?” boxes. So far I have designed a few things:

Flower girl dress (not the best pics since I had to use a throw pillow as a stand-in for my grand-niece 🙂
My cathedral veil with blusher:
But mostly I love to paint–so all the little random signs– (a nod to my Canadian Fiance in this one):
I have been DIYing just about everything. Still 8 months to go (as of today), so probably some more projects in my future.

@mtbikelover: May I ask how you painted your signs? They look great! I’m not sure whether I want to stencil letters on first, or print on wax paper to transfer, etc etc. Also where did you go for the wood?

I DIY’d 8 bouquets, 10 felt boutonnieres, 3 corsages, the table numbers, matching programs which I don’t want to show cuz they have everyne’s full names, and spent months collecting and assembling all the stuff for the centerpieces. My Mom sewed the table runners.

I didn’t use stencils. I hand painted all the letters for every sign by downloading the font from the internet and tracing it onto the board. The wood is from Home Depot. They got so many compliments that I decided to open an Etsy store and try to sell them.
