Hello! This post is about some of the wedding DIY things I did. As the title indicates, I promised myself I would not under ANY CIRCUMSTANCE stress myself out with diy and then of course I ended up DIYing.
The first thing I DIYed were the save-the-dates and invitations. Did you know that it costs several hundred dollars to get wedding invitations designed and printed? I did not know this until several months ago and was absolutely shocked at the exorbitant prices for literally paper that people look at for one second and then throw away. SERIOUSLY!!! So i decided that to achieve the price and look I desired, I would try and make my own. Here are the supplies I used:
(Not pictured: masking fluid, liquid water color, salt, and paintbrushes (duh))
I created paintings and then took them to UPS to have them scanned in high resolution.
Then, I uploaded the images to Vistaprint and got the invitations printed with exquisite detail for about a quarter of the price of most wedding invitation suites.
I also hand painted our Welcome Sign using the same materials on 18×24 watercolor paper. Finding a frame for this size was surprisingly difficult but I managed to finally find one at Target.
On a dollar store frame I painted “Please Sign Our Guestbook” which went along with our incredible handmade paper and leather book from Mind’s Eye Journals. I also set our invitation in a shadow box displayed with it.
The last bit of DIY was the card box. I ordered this house terrarium from Amazon which kinda matched our terrarium centerpieces. Then I used white acrylic paint to add leaves and vines.
Another lovely bespoke detail was this set of corn hole boards created by Rusty Nail. They were a big hit for wedding guests!
So that’s about it for my Wedding DIY! We also did bubbles with ribbons but I can’t seem to find a picture of those at the moment. I will leave you with a selfie of me and my Mister:
