Just curious as to what other brides or doing themselves. We are doing all of our flowers, bouquets, boutanniers, centerpieces, card box, STD, invites, Bridesmaid or Best Man jewelry, and I think thats it! What about you? Any more ideas for DIY projects?!

We’re doing the invitations, programs, table slipcovers, favors, centerpieces, guest book (though I haven’t yet settled on just what I want to do), picnic blankets, bouquets, various decorations, and the food (though I’ll obviously have tons of help with that!).

Making Out of Town bags, informational folders, save the dates, ring bearer books, custom rainbow crayons and a card monster. I think that’s about it, but it feels like so much more.

What a list! We’re doing flowers, food, card box, toasting glasses, sand vase, memorial vase, guest book, invitations, programs, centerpieces, and there is prolly more, but I can’t think right now!
It’s basically going to be a DIY wedding except for clothing.

I did the invitations (except the designing of them, which was done by my FSIL). I’ll also be doing the programs, table names/numbers, escort cards, and menu cards. Possibly the favor boxes too but I’m not sure about that yet.

We’re doing all of our paper products ourselves — Save-The-Date Cards, invites, programs, menus. Also, fabric squares for the centerpieces to sit on, a card box, Out of Town bags, and favors — and we designed our own wedding website in DreamWeaver. I’m sure there are other small projects that I’m not thinking of right now.

- Unity candle (decorating it – not making it!)
- Save the Dates
- Monogram (w/some Weddingbee help already!)
- Flower girl dress (Grandma)
- Seating chart board
- Maybe church/isle decor

I made all the bouquets, boutonnieres, coursages already. I am making decorations for the pews, programs, designing my cake, desiging invitations and STD’s. Mom is making the ring bearer pillow, card holder. Making our own food and drinks for the reception. I think thats about it, or at least all I can think of right now!

- Wedding: March 2010 - Calamigos Ranch
I’m just doing the paper stuff, and sort of the centerpieces (at least, there is no vendor doing them)… although I haven’t thought about a card box yet, so I might be doing that, too!
