    I’m DIY’ing a lot! But I’m still pretty far out, and also I’m kind of a fail-bride in terms of planning, so I don’t have too many specifics yet.

    Flowers: I’m getting flowers wholesale and doing the bouquets. I’m not sure yet if I”m doing the bouts. I might outsource that since they’ll be a lot cheaper.

    Centerpieces/all decor: Not sure what I’m doing yet… but whatever it is, I’m doing it myself! I think there will be paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling and the centerpieces will be some combo of vases, candles, maybe branches…. yea I dunno. 🙂

    Favors: Making my own chocolate covered pretzel rods. Mmmm

    Out of Town bags: Not sure whats going to be in them… but I’ll be doing them myself.

    Wedding party gifts: No clue what the groomsman are getting, but I’m making quilts for my Maid/Matron of Honor and BMs

    Paper goods: Save-The-Date Cards, Invites, Programs, Escort cards, etc. All me.

    DJ: Fiance is taking care of the ipod stuff.

    Looking at this list…. I really need to get moving….

    For the most part, it’s just the paper products (invitations, Save-The-Date Cards, programs, escort cards, rehearsal dinner invitations, photosharing, table #’s, etc).  I’m also making bridesmaid gifts and pew bows for the church.

    Here’s a few pics of things I’ve made:

    And here’s my inspiration for the pew bows:

    I really didn’t even know where to start with DIYing except for all of my stationary/paper products!  You ladies really have a lot of great ideas in mind.  So I guess after realizing how much was possible, I will also be DIYing my candy buffet and containers, my escort cards (we’re considering doing a seating chart instead of escort cards), my Save-The-Date Cards, invitations, TYs, and possibly my bouquets.

    I want to DIY my invites&co but not sure whether I’ll be able to juggle it while finishing up this semester at university (and the invites just need to go out before the end of the month).. Apart from that I am going to make my own favors, guest book and our wedding album.

    I am DIYing every single thing.  I even have a friend that is a pastor that is performing our ceremony, and a friend that is a photographer that is taking photographs.  I have to get my alterations done, so that’s the one thing I am not very good at myself.  I even did our engagement shots, processed them, printed them, toned them…ugh.  It was a lot of work, but they’ll be on display at the wedding, and I’ll give them as gifts, so they were worth the time and effort and money.

    I am glad that there are other DIYers out there!  Keep up the good work ladies!
