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.

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 :)
