Alright, so its been over 7 years since I got married and if I could go back and do more of the planning and preparations myself, I think I would. At the time I was OK with just saying ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to whatever someone asked me and on to the next item on the wedding-planning-checklist. Don’t get me wrong, at the time it was great and low stress but when I look back at my wedding photos (which are special no matter what) I wonder what it would have looked like if I had set aside my lack-of-creativity fear and just tried a couple projects! With that said…I’m obsessed with the personal touch that DIY gives a wedding! Let’s be honest, not every bride can spend the 2013 average wedding cost of $28,000 and even if you could you don’t have to (save it for the honeymoon)! Add some fun to your wedding planning by doing simple DIY Wedding projects with your girlfriends (or fiance, if you are brave enough) that will leave your guests remembering the personalized touches that made your wedding one-of-a-kind!
