Question 1 of 27

What elements of a wedding are you most willing and able to DIY?

"I most enjoy DIYing the small touches of a wedding and reception that make a big impact, save a lot of money, and don't take too much time. In particular, I love DIYing the floral arrangements for table centerpieces and other decorative elements of the ceremony and reception. I absolutely love decorating with lights and tulle, so that is another component of d?cor that I enjoy doing myself. That said, I always enjoy hearing what the couple has in mind, and I'm open to new projects."
