I’ve always been a big fan of do-it-yourself projects, and weddings provide endless opportunities for these sorts of endeavors. But I know other ladies who’d rather hire a pro to get stuff done. Which are you?
(So many great DIY ideas online! Like these ones from The Knot.)
Part of the reason I’m attracted to building and creating elements with our own two hands is financial— in most cases, it saves a bundle. But beyond that, I love that by putting our own stamp on a bunch of elements of the wedding, it becomes more personal and is a great reflection of who Travis and I are as a couple.
Here’s a list of some of our DIY wedding projects:
-Wedding website (built 100% by Travis— with input from me… he is a web designer, after all.)
-Save The Dates (designed by us, printed by Overnight Prints)
-Various decor items (signs, table runners, etc…)
There are more, and I’m sure the list will continue growing… it’s only overwhelming about 30% of the time.
What are your thoughts on DIY wedding projects? Would you— or did you— personalize or create aspects of your wedding by hand? Or is it worth saving the time and hiring a pro for the job? Tell me what you think in the comments!
