Hey everyone. I don't have a huge wedding budget, and I'm not trying to have anything super fancy, but I love DIY and I am hoping to do most of my wedding stuff as DIY. Do you guys have any good wedding DIY? Any pictures? I want to see your best craft skills.

    I don't have a picture, but we built our lanterns for centerpieces out of wooden sticks bought at home depot and some stain. Saved us over $100 in the end on those. I am also making my own place cards, signs, and isle decor.

    Here are a few of mine. Not all of my diys actually saved me money, but I got to customize them to us so it was worth it. diy Wedding 3

    Trial crepe cake (for my birthday), this is what we’ll have for cake cutting.I planned to DIY invitations (we only needed 24), but I ran out of time waiting to see if the wedding could continue or not with Covid- I didn’t want to waste supplies just to scrap those invites and start over. I’ve been working on painting signs lately, but I don’t have any pictures of those projects yet. I’m a big crafter, so I dug into my stores for a lot of stuff.Definitely space out any projects you’re planning, and have fun with it! Good luck!

    Thanks! I went a little thick with the ganache considering we’ll be doing cake at 10am, but that’s what trials are for!

    Those jars with the pictures are so cute! Are they going to be used as centerpieces?

    My stepdaughter and I made the cake, but we bought a LOT of stuff on Etsy since I don't trust my DIY skills....I'd look there for inspiration, save your favorites, and then you can compare the costs of purchasing vs DIY.

    I wanted to make sure the handmade things we purchased looked nice. Sometimes DIY can look a bit tacky and that's another reason I didn't make anything except the cake and my veil. If I did it again, I would have purchased the veil off Etsy too because that ended up being really stressful.

    I made these pressed flower resin place cards/coasters. I still need to calligraphy all of the guests names on them with a white paint pen. But I'm planning to put this on top of each guests plate/menu. I wanted something that was "reusable" as I think typically place cards get thrown out afterwards.

    I’m a DIYer too. Here’s only a few projects of mine. At first I was on a very strict budget, but our parents were able to contribute much more than expected, so my DIYs got bigger and crazier. I would say I bit off more than I could chew. I’m noticing they are taking twice as long as I’d planned.
