DIY Craziness.

So anyone who knows me understands that DIY projects are pretty much my forte. You also know that I tend to take on huge projects, convince myself that they're super easy and inexpensive, then leave them half-finished (the plaques sitting in the computer room, Mom?).

So when I start thinking about the DIY wedding projects, my natural tendency is to go pretty crazy. And by crazy, I mean I've pondered actually doing the catering myself (and yes, I talked myself out of that pretty stinking quickly!). So here's the list of projects I'm definitely going to do myself:

  • Invites
  • Programs
  • Favors
  • Table menus
  • Seating chart
  • Veil
  • Wreaths for the doors (Stupid project, but I'm finished already)

Here's a list of projects I'd like to do myself, but would be okay outsourcing:

  • Ceremony arch/chuppah knock-off
  • Misc. ceremony decor (chair/aisle decorations)
  • Reception centerpieces
  • Flower girl wands (the wand part, not the actual flowers...)

Hmm...I can't seem to think of any more out there. Anybody else??

I would outsource the centerpieces. Becuase by the time you figure out what you want and buy everything you are going to end up paying the same as having someone else do them. Unless you are thinking mostly candles. And then you have to take all that home with you.
