    I may or may not do my own save-the-dates. I do graphic design on the side, but those Minted and Shutterfly designs are so pretty!!

    I love the all-in-one invitations on Minted and will probably go that route since it's minimal assembly and they're unique!

    Save the dates - leave it to a pro (photographer & printing/addressing)

    Hire a pro. When I try to do my own stuff it looks like crud lol. We are having a DW anyways so I don't want to pack more than clothes and my shoes.

    Hire away! All the ideas in my head will likely stay that way. Unless it's a robot or a computer program, my attention span is that of a gnat!

    Hire a Pro! I may do some little things here and there but, that's about it.

    I'm doing a ton of DIY. I'm very crafty and would generally have a ton of projects on the go if I wasn't working on stuff for the wedding anyway. I'm mostly DIY-ing because I love it and want to really put a personalized touch on our wedding. Some things I'm saving money on and others I'm probably spending more to DIY it but, in the end I know I will have exactly what I want because I made it myself.

    I am a DIYer. I actually just love crafting! I may have made my life more complicated by doing so, though.

    I'm a mix. There are certain things I am DIY'ing bc it's more cost effective, or I just couldn't find exactly what I was looking for online, and certain things we are buying.
