    I’m going DIY for a lot of things. Signage, centerpieces, all bouquets/boutonnieres, card box, other decorations, and cupcakes (rather than cake). I’m also designing our guest book online. It sounds like a lot but we have plenty of time and people to help!

    I am DIYing quite a bit so far.

    I put together my bridesmaid proposal boxes. That was so much fun!

    Right now my focus is on refinishing several pieces of furniture. I have sweetheart table chairs, a drop leaf table that will be the cake table, a vanity that the guest book will be on, and another set of antique chairs.

    I am also working on collecting mismatched dishes for the reception. I have been visiting all the thrift stores locally. It's like a treasure hunt!

    I picked up the Socker greenhouse from IKEA to turn into my cardbox.

    I also plan to do my centerpieces with my bridesmaids. I purchased 20 glass terrariums from Target when they clearanced the patio items. They will have babys breath in them and a candle. Super simple.

    I did our wedding card box and printed out our seating charts and put them in pic frames.

    My mom did all the DIY for my shower and for the wedding. She has all summer off and is very crafty. She did the welcome sign, ring bearer teacup, flower girl basket, card bird cage, her own dress, and my garter.My sister designed the Save the dates, engagement party invites, bridal shower invites, and wedding invite suite.

    The only thing I've DIYed are my pew bows. I bought tulle from Walmart and made them just how I wanted!

    I don't think I will be doing anything myself. I am not artistic and I trust the professionals. I am super lucky to have a mostly "inclusive" venue, awesome, talented family members to help and leftovers from other weddings in the family.

    A lot of our DIY is courtesy of my mother. She has the Cricut so she did our bridal party shirts, wine glasses and beer mugs, all but 1 of our reception signs, and our koozies. I did our centerpieces and my sister is making our cupcakes. We just have to make a couple of signs to direct people where to go and we're all done! So about 8 or so.

    A bunch of things!

    I made the card box, the ring box, I painted the "gifts and cards" sign, I did all the ceremony decorations along with the reception centerpieces, and I also made bar signs. Might be more, but I dont remember right now!

    I'm unsure! Our signs will be DIY, seating chart, table numbers, some decorations...
