My DIY Wedding Round-up!

If you've been following my blog for a while then you probably saw me craft my way through my 10 month engagement. We wanted to keep the wedding low budget and DIY was a great way to make that happen!  I wanted to do a round up of all my crafting projects and to showcase how some of them looked on the actual wedding day!

Starting at the beginning:

Save the Date Postcards using VistaPrint
I designed the image for our Save the Dates on Picnik and printed them with Vistaprint when they had a deal going on - only cost me $8!

With some construction paper, ribbon, and little beads I made cute cards to ask my girls to be in my wedding!

Here's a pretty picture of our invitations - I bought the cards and then embellished them with pretty ribbon!

These pew decor cones took me forever to make but I am SO happy with how they looked in the church! They were my only decor for the ceremony, but I think they were just enough.


Love this shot of the ceremony. I even made the flower petals the flower girl tossed!


I love these sparkly earrings I made to wear with my dress :) I didn't really get a good picture of them on but you can sort of see one in this picture:

Also made the bridesmaid's earrings!

These dang centerpieces sure took forever to make, but saved me lots of money! 

Here they are at the wedding:

You can also see my DIY Table Numbers in that picture as well:


This was one of my favorite projects for the wedding. I just love how it turned out!

Here it is on a little table for the guests to sign as they walked into the reception:

You can also see the cute faux billy ball flowers I made with wool!

I put together hot chocolate and heart-shaped marshmallows for the wedding favors:

And then packaged them up with ribbon and names in little paper baggies. 

I had a friend make my bouquets for me, and I provided her with some pretty crystal and silk flower accents to add in.

And last but now least....I made my own veil turning this:

I'm so happy with how my projects turned out.  I think it made the wedding extra special because I put my own handmade touch on it :)  DIY weddings are not for everyone...it was certainly time consuming!! But as long as you have enough patience and a few friends willing to lend a hand, it's a great way to save money for your big day :)
