LOL awww, they are going to be totally worth it, when you are looking back in 30 years and know you made them yourself.

I DIY’ed my shoes but loved it, have not started any new DIYs yet 🙂

I feel you on the fabric poms! I am doing fabric and tulle ones and the tulle ones take half the time! But when they are done they look SO GOOD!!

I’m doing tissue paper poms and I am so tired of making the flowers.

My DIY hell was our chuppah (wedding canopy).  I hadn’t sewn anything since high school.  The chuppah was made of a stretchy material, so it was hard to cut it to exact measurements.  And I had no pattern for it.  In the end, I was very pleased with it, but there was a point partway through when I thought I should just throw it out and start over.

Oh no, sorry to hear about your blade! I’m sure they’ll all come out beautifully! My Fiance is DIY’ing the invitations and SaveTheDates…yeah, we’re marrying Oct. 2nd and still no Save-The-Date Cards. Oh boy. I would be happy just getting out the invites at this point. I am so angry at the delay I could scream. At this point, I wish we would just order a different set and be done with ’em. I will have to put my foot down if tomorrow brings nadda again. We’re doing a disservice to our guests not giving them enough time to plan. Argh.

But you will love all the personalized touches and other Bees at the wedding will notice your effort!  It will be worth it. 🙂

So far I’ve only done Save-The-Date Cards, thank you notes and rehearsal dinner invites.  I am putting off the swirly shaped petal covered aisle decor eventhough it was supposed to be my second project.  Just know it will be long and tedious but SO worth it!
