@lawbride88:  I made bride and groom signs by buying wooden letters, painting them in our wedding colours, and sticking them onto cloth bunting which I made earlier.

For a guestbook, I made a book with cloth, wooden letters and more bunting. It’s going to go with a photo printer and some props so that guests can print a photo from their camera or phone and stick it in next to their message.

Don’t know how OP did it, but those are my ideas.

@DarthBetty:  wow that is an intense list! My biggest DIY project were making my wedding favors. I also wanted to make custom stamps myself of our initials to place on top of our favors. I probably overshot that project, but whatever.
– I contemplated making part of our wedding centerpieces but I think I may just end up leaving that to our decorator now
– I am designing our RSVP cards by replicating them in the same style as our printed invites
– Contemplating making my own lace veil, but I’m still searching for a good tutorial and I’m trying to decide if it’s worth the effort :p
– We may do a chalkboard sign for the wedding program instead of handing out paper programs for everyone. Again, we’re contemplating.
– may do spray painted block letters of the first letter of our names
– table numbers

I probably have some more DIY projects I can’t remember. My head’s been swimming with wedding planning

I’ve been taking things off my list as time runs short, and let’s face it – I don’t want to do anything the week of the wedding!

I have the following left

– Rehearsal dinner invitations

– Sand Ceremony (whatever we plan on doing)

– Finish card box

– Signage for everything (Ceremony, Tables, Reserved, etc.)

– Kids room stuff

– Escort cards and set-up

– Broom for jumping the broom

– Ceremony Programs

– Mr. and Mrs. Signs

– And maybe Out of Town bags


Lot’s to do, and hopefully can just get stuff done one by one.

My DIY list is a *tad* aggressive, but this is what I have finished so far:

Petal aisle runner

Card box 

177 ribbon/send off wands

350 personalized drink stirrers

89 save the date cards

50′ of paper flower & bead garland

160 crocheted fortune cookie favors 

160 pyramid boxes for the cookies that serve as escort cards

Crocheted garters (keep & toss)


My in progress ones:

1000 origami cranes (at 300)

3-tier cathedral veil (finishing the beading)

Over sized painted paper flower for the centerpieces (the cranes are part of this too)

Bridesmade jewelry (one set of necklace/earrings complete)

Bridal jewelry (statement necklace about 1/4th done)


As I finish one, I add another. That way I can work on what I feel like and it doesn’t feel like a chore.  I love making stuff, so I have gone a bit crazy.
