    Mostly innocent! Before the proposal (when I was planning my hypothetical wedding) I intended on DIY-ing everything, but once real wedding planning started I realized for most things it's more cost effective/less stressful to just throw money at something and call it a day.

    Innocent! I only DIY my bouquets and boutonnieres and I thought they turned out awesome.

    Innocent, the only thing I DIY'd was the bouquets and they turned out good.

    I hope not! I only have a few things planned, and I like to think of myself as a creative person, so I hope it will all work out.

    Innocent on this one. I'm only DIYing a small amount of things for that reason.

    No because I’ve tried to not do many but there’s certainly a price to paying for things already done!

    Oh absolutely I have. All the DIY’s I’ve done have turned out beautifully, thankfully, but I definitely have scrapped some ideas and scaled back others to make them MUCH simpler than when I first started planning and brainstorming 😂

    Eh I’ve only tried to DIY 1 thing so far, table #s, and they came out great. However I decided against using them because it didn’t really fit with my decor.

    Thankfully no! I’m DIYing all my signage and did my own invites and other than a crazy amount of time invested in the designing process (graphic design is time consuming) everything looks great and has been cheap to print.

    I've used Etsy for some signs. Idk if that counts as diy.

    I will be doing my own centerpieces. The mock up kind of makes me laugh. Thank God I'm leaving my cheesecloth runners in their natural ivory color and not trying to dye them.

    My save the dates were meh, but my invites turned out lovely!

    We have yet to make our copper arch.

    So 50/50. I plead the 5th.

    Innocent at the moment, but I haven't started my DIY things, such as HMU!

    LOL Innocent. I haven’t DIY anything. To me it’s more worth it to spend the money and have it done right than risk spending twice as much fixing something I ruined. Not very crafty.
