    I’m making the centerpieces (gold mason jars and white roses from Trader Joe’s—keeping it simple!). I also created and printed literary quotes for each table that I’m going to frame with simple white frames. I’ll also frame a few signs that I’m buying from Amazon. We’re setting up and decorating everything ourselves, but it will just be chair covers, tablecloths, table runners, the centerpieces and table numbers, and the frames. And I’m baking homemade cookies to go with our cake, which I am NOT DIYing! We’re keeping everything as simple (but classy) as possible.

    Just one! I plan to create a sign that explains how the ceremony is unplugged.

    I have a total of 5. Making all of the signs, making pumpkin centerpieces, making lace votive centerpieces, making an alter decoration, and doing my own flowers throughout the whole venue.

    Oof, actually counting them now made me realize that I'm taking on more than I thought. 7, though I keep thinking of more.
    Fruit bowl centrepeices for the aperitivo, crafting the bowls themselves, foraged wildflower centrepieces for the banquet table, printing bilingual menus on handmade paper (though buying the paper), printing a bilingual ceremony, making a wine bottle time capsule/guest book, and making Sposo/Bride chair signs.

    Hey, like you I am also doing mostly DIY for my wedding just to try to keep things affordable. Could you give me some tips on keeping on schedule and time management (as far as deadlines go)

    We’re doing the center pieces, my dad made the structure we'll stand under, lighting, I added personalization to our card box, a sign that’s acting as our program, and a sparkler send off sign. So six but possibly more!

    3. Centerpieces, guestbook (which will probably be a slab of oblong wood), and signs.

    Not sure if I will have any. I do need to order a guestbook, card box and a few signs to go with the exterior tables (welcome table with book and card box), generations of love table and cake table (and maybe the dessert bar).
