Overwhelmed with diy

My fiancé and I are trying to have a beautiful but inexpensive wedding, which means a lot of DIYing. Aside from actually doing it, I'm getting overwhelmed just trying to make a list of things that I will need to make! Any tips?

    PPs saying less is more is on point! the simpler you keep things, the less you have to do and buy

    Something that helped me was definitely Pinterest , but I did multiple boards for things I loved the idea of and then I would go through it and filter into must haves etc, that’s also how I pinpointed the theme and style of what I wanted. (Ex: I liked the exact floral choices of one photo , and used that combined with the candle choices of another) Like others said less is more.
    I made my bouquet, bridesmaid bouquets and boutonnieres, centerpieces, 2 signs (on Microsoft word and printed the signs at a library put in dollar tree frames), invitations (also on Microsoft word), guestbook painting, pallet backdrop thing, burned name wood slices. With help of hubby on some of it. I had WAAAAY more ideas for decor and ended up scrapping all the extras to save on stress and the decor still looked great!
