I love this thread. So many great ideas. Planning on diy-ing a fair bit ourselves. So far invitations are done and I have someone working on flowers. I'm just wondering did you start when you got engaged? Or how long did it take to do everything?

We had a 22 month engagement and we started crafting nearly straight away (once we had themes/colours decided on). We slowly worked away at it all up until a month or so before the wedding I think - it was nice having the time to chip away at it when we felt like it, it meant it never felt like a chore.

Hey, has anyone done personalised champagne flutes for the bride and groom? I saw some really lovely ones in a tutorial on something turquoise and I must have them. Any of you crafty girls out there know how to paint glitter onto glass?

Just found this threat, love it! I'm DIYing as much as possible too!
I've the invitations made and gave email address for rsvp.
I'm making the mass booklets, I had books of decorative paper so I cut sheets to A4 size and they'll be folded in half with simple printed pages. Ive a long-arm stapler so I'll staple them in the centre like a copybook.
Im in the middle of painting signs with love quotes that I'll put around the reception room.
I made a little strip of bunting and embroidered "just married" for the cake topper; tied it to two little wooden skewers that will stick into the cake.
There are some lovely ideas here, I must give some of them a go!

what a grat idea! i'm dreaming of wedding with a lot of wedding candles. Can I personalize candles? I think about candles like this: https://candlemania.ie/products/church-candles-tapers/church-candles-white
PS I know there are church candles, its only an example

You are so great. I would like to see any photo about what you have done. I plan to do as much as possible. Now I look at the invitation and try to find good designs and materials. I like the list of what I consider to be a genius.
