    I'm DIYing pretty much everything! I'm an artist and I've had so much fun utilizing my creativity and artistic abilities during wedding planning! I've DIYed everything from scratch including our saves the dates, invitations, bouquets, centerpieces, guestbook, seating chart display, wedding favors, escort cards, family memorial display, ceremony backdrop, wedding veil, and all the decor! Smiley xd Smiley heart my FH is so supportive and loves everything I make so that makes me happy Smiley smile

    Ummmm, about 40-50? All decorations, stationary, flowers, Tablecloths, hair ornaments, signs, etc. I have almost a year and have it all planned out with a timeline & everything. Crafty masochist here, lol!

    I actually started a blog as a way to journal the process & help my out-of-town family members feel included.

    I'd like to do as much DIY as I can. My MOH and I get together for craft nights every so often, so I think this will be fun for us. We'll definitely be DIYing the centerpieces, but not sure what else yet.

    I swore I would not be a DIY bride, but I was fooling myself! I love crafting, and don’t really go for a lot of what’s on trend right now. I’ve designed, printed, and hand embossed every papergood (invitation suite, favor labels, escort cards, table numbers, menus, and programs), our STDs were wooden ornaments that I branded with a logo we designed together, centerpieces, favors, and bridesmaids gifts are all handmade and/or assembled, and I’ll be doing my own hair and MU. My mom is making my jewelry, so that’s DIY, but not by me! I’m sure there are other little things I’m forgetting, but it’s so worth it to have a day that’s so uniquely ours.

    I don't know. I'm not very handy or crafty so I may not do any

    What an awesome idea! Do a lot of them comment on your projects with tips and what not?

    Thank you so much!! Don't worry I'll be posting lots of pictures and I told our photographer that detail shots of the decor are something I really want! I hope it turns out as good as I'm picturing it to be Smiley laugh

    Anything decor related, I am doing. Centerpieces, card box, memorial setup, photo booth, invitations, save the dates, engagement announcements, signs, several misc projects (spray painting picture frames for signs, memorial bouquet etc). I have always been a huge fan of DIY so it wasn't even a question when it came time for wedding planning. I knew what I wanted and how to create it. I'm so happy with all of it.

    Oh man, big question. I'd say probably 5 DIY projects, but each project needs anywhere from 4-18 finished pieces. My favorite DIY project I'm working on is creating coloring pages of me and the FH to give as gifts to our guests (he and I are both artists) Smiley laugh

    Just one DIY project so far. I'm only doing my own bridal bouquet and maybe the bridesmaids bouquets. Im thinking of buying the centerpieces flowers prearranged from Fiftyflowers and using a few of them as the bridesmaids bouquets if that'll work.
