    I don't think so... it's just a lot more time consuming than I imagined

    Definitely guilty. I love crafting and DIY as much as the next person but DIY for a wedding is on a whole other level!

    Ha! Yes.. My centerpieces don't look that great. You'd think the more I work on them the better I get, right? not! lol

    I’m so guilty of this. The last two months before my wedding I was staying up until 5-6am trying to get my DIYs done.

    I probably have. I plan on DIYing the save the dates and some of the decorations, but I've never been the craftiest person in the world, so I can see it going horribly wrong xD Luckily I've still got plenty of time to change my mind.

    No. I don't DIY a lot but I'm sure whatever I try will be great!

    Luckily, I am actually good at DIY wedding decor. Haha! I am a photographer and a painter and I also craft a lot in my free time so it has made wedding DIY-ing very easy!

    I am guilty but I do think that my DIY projects look good. I enjoy doing things especially when I'm bored. I have done my centerpieces, favors, 7-bouquets(hoops), broom, card box, memory frames, and last name letters. I only have my ring box and to finish my last 4 bouquets(hoops).

    Innocent... so far. I haven't gotten to the bigger projects yet so we'll see.

    Guilty-ish. I'm doing my own centerpieces, and bouquets because everyone is allergic to real flowers (except me of course). Everything has been a little more time consuming than I thought. Plus I forgot I kinda need to be off from work to do these things...smh

    Innocent. I know myself well enough to know when I am expecting too much from myself with crafting. I plan to make the cake and invites if we chose to have them, and that will probably be it. Maybe some paper flowers for a bouquet.

    Innocent. I know I'm not creative or artistic, so I'll be hiring and assigning other people to help with that area 😂😂
