    Our wedding is going totally DIY .. lol ... My Mum is designing and making the dresses, My sister is making all the signs and garlands ... I am making the cake/sweets, bunting, flowers and room decorations, favours... and the reception will be in our house !!!!!! .. the only things being left to 'professionals' is the food, millinery, jewellery, hair and make up .. just under a year to go .. I am soooo excited I may burst !!!! :D

    We are having a seaside theme, so I am going to use the materials found on the beach as an inspiration .. I am going to make driftwood boats to decorate the room :)

    these are also the ideas I have had for our cake and table/room decor

    Welcome to the forums! :)

    Sounds like your plans are coming along brilliantly! I really like the look of your theme, do you live near the seaside? What is your dress going to be like?

    DIY weddings are great - the guests can usually really see how much effort has been put into the whole event and definitely appreciate it, as well as you having the satisfaction of knowing that your Big Day is going to be a great day for everyone, and it was through your sweat and hard work!
    They do take a lot more work, in a way, than "non-DIY" weddings, but in a different way - you just have to get to it, and do the mechanical work of moving around, transporting things, making invitations, etc. Less abstract brain work, more legwork, so to speak. ;)
    Good luck with it! :)
