    Most of my DIY efforts are going towards my bridespeople gifts and welcome bags. I'm going to do customized monogrammed overside button downs and handmade cards to go with their gifts. I'm toying with making soap for favors (both my mom and aunt make soap).

    Your bouquet is beautiful!!! Do you have pics of your signage? Sometimes we are our own worse critic. Was it hard to DIY? What took the most time to make?

    It is! We bought a custom wax seal for our invitations. I really want to use it in multiple place. I love wax seals

    I crocheted shawls for my girls, bedazzled my shoes, painted the numbers onto hockey pucks for our table numbers, and a few other small things. But those were probably the biggest.

    Crocheted?!?!?! Wow! I wish we could see a close up of the shawls! That is a nice and sweet personal gift for your ladies that they can wear again! You did a wonderful job!

    What other small projects did you work on?

    So far I’ve made centerpiece boxes out of my parents old fence boards, tic-tac-toe lawn game (photo is not the finished product), and table numbers!

    I’m diy ing my centerpieces. I’m making one a month until I have the full 12 needed for dec. I made It so that it would light up as well. I’m excited about that. I’ll also be potentially making floral hoops that incorporate these bells.

    The wreath will be the centerpiece of the tables. The Bell will probably sit upright on the floral hoop.

    Your flowers are so beautiful!!!! These look so professional! Do you have any tips to give other brides that want to DIY their own flowers? How long did it take you to make all of them?

    Thank you so much! YouTube was a huge help to me! I found some awesome DIY tutorials that made it look easy! I made all of the bridesmaids bouquets in a couple of hours and did mine on another day and probably took me about an hour. I got all of my flowers at Hobby Lobby for about $75 and the other supplies for probably $10-15 so I saved so much money!

    Yeah you definitely saved a lot of money! It's upsetting to see some brides say that they were quote thousands of dollars for flowers! I'm glad that those brides take control and do it themselves and their flowers look just as good as the florists. It really warms my spirit to see people tap into their creative side and save money while doing it.
