    4! Popcorn bar, signs, all the centerpieces, guest book, so much to do, so little time!

    Pretty much everything is a DIY! I'd say about 20-25 projects in total but we have a lot of hands to help!

    I had one major DIY project - making program fans. But, I also assembled and addressed all of our invitations, printed addresses on our save-the-dates and tied ribbons on our wine bottle favors.

    Oh, I also spray-painted our "better together" chair signs, but that's barely a DIY, lol.

    I did our table number holders, card box and seating chart holder. We had very few DIYs.

    And like PP, I spray painted a sign.

    We will be doing the guest book, some decore projects, lawn games, and the wedding arch so far, so I think like 7-10 projects total if you break them all up individually.

    Approx. 40 projects. Smiley tongue Our wedding decor is heavily DIY'd. I did a bunch of different things including favors, bouquets, invites, signage, programs, WP gifts, photobooth props, etc.

    Only about 7-8 projects left to finish. I love it all though and can't imagine doing it any other way.

    I guess 3. Props for our photo guest book, spray painting a bunch of bottles, and spray painting frames for menus and signs. I hired others to do DIY stuff I didn't want to do as I'm pretty DIY challenged: calligraphers are doing our place cards (marble tiles!) and table numbers and my friend and one of my BMs designed our save the dates and invites. Oh and my sister is making DIY mercury glass votives as a gift.

    I love program fans, were they easy to make?? Lol, I'll count the spray painting as a project, I'm sure it looked great!

    None! Nothing comes out as good as I want it and it's a DW so I don't want to bring more than we have to

    Almost all diy minus floral and cake I would say! We had a 2 year engagement so I was able to space everything out

    Not sure of an actual number yet. We have about four to five in mind and have started three.

    All of that sounds awesome, I love the marble tiles for the place cards!!! I'll probably do the same thing, I like doing it but I'm not the most artistic!
