on doing it yourself

we have a teeny little thing called a wedding budget.

i know this means different things to different people but to us it means keeping the cost of this affair under $12,000.

i have decided that our smaller budget it actually a blessing in disguise.

why you ask?

well, instead of outsourcing to vendors we get to include those most important to us in planning and executing.

I really love that idea.

I love the idea that everyone will be working together and that we will get to spend a few extra moments that we may not have had with friends and family.

Our do it yourself list is a somewhat lengthy one:

  • Save the dates
  • Invitation suite
  • Calligraphy
  • Centerpieces
  • Escort cards
  • Favors
  • Guest book
  • Birdcage

    Through all of this, the most important part of our wedding day is the connection we have with each other and the people who have supported us our entire lives.

    We want our wedding day to not only be a celebration of the beginning of our lives together but also a thank you to all of those who have helped us reach this point in our lives.

    What are your do it yourself projects? Are you planning on having your family and friends be a large part of your big day?
