Would you and your fiancé(e) consider yourselves crafty? Are you creating some of your own wedding decor, stationery, or customizing your attire? Are you taking on one or more DIY projects?

    Not too many. Honestly my dad is making my cupcake and cake stands, which are turning out awesome. My aunt is making my bouquets. I am doing my centerpieces, but that's it. I'm not very crafty lol.

    We're not that crafty. He's talented being a graphic designer but we're both pretty useless in this aspect lol

    We have a couple on our lists, but they're all pretty small/simple things. The favors and decorations mainly. Possibly the guest book, depending on which direction we decide to go in. The cupcake stand/set-up is on the list as well.

    More. I have a small business making signs and other crafty items, so we’re doing all of that ourselves.

    A few, I wanted to do somethings that made me feel a part of the decorating aspect as well

    I thought about doing my own flowers because I worked for a wedding planner that did flowers. However, as much as I loved helping to create flowers for other brides I didn’t want to deal with the hassle myself especially with it being a destination wedding.

    We’re doing a ton of DIY! I’m making scarves as part of the wedding party gifts, we’re making candy and little snacks for our dessert table, I’m making paper flowers for our centerpieces, we’re drawing and painting a canvas for our guestbook, we redecorated a mailbox to fit our theme, I knitted a little owl to sit on the mailbox, we’re making floating candles and we designed, printed, cut and assembled our envelopes! We’ve done about 20-30% of the DIYs but I’m not worried because we have a ton of time before the wedding!

    ZERO. I do not do arts and crafts. I remember crying during art in elementary school. It scarred me for life lol

    One - just the welcome boxes. I am not at all crafty and I didn't want my family doing anything before or after the wedding.
