We’re also using the Our Adventure Book for our wedding and honeymoon photos, though I think we’ll need to buy extra pages for it to accommodate all the awesome pictures!
When we were getting ready to leave another bride spotted this folding sign near our ceremony area. It says “Choose a seat not a side, we’re all family once the knot is tied” and on the back “Eat, Drink and Be Married!”
The bride liked it so much that she wanted to use it too. I thought she wanted to buy it, and said she could have it for $40 (the sign itself was $30). But, since she wanted to rent it instead she gave us $30 and we got the sign back. Woot!
That’s pretty much the extent of my DIY work for the wedding. Do I regret it at all? Wish I had more personalized things or saved money by doing more things myself? When I was planning, I felt kind of bad – like I should really put in more effort. But, on the day of the wedding I was so happy and relaxed. All the vendors were kind of amazed at how chill I was about everything. I credit this to my determination not to take on more than I could handle in DIY projects.
I came to the conclusion that the wedding is just one day and most of that stuff I could probably not use again. With the time I have to work on art and craft projects, I’d rather work on things that I can use for long periods of time or gifts for my friends and family. So no, no regrets at all.
That said, I would totally love to help my friends or family DIY things for their wedding. It’s not my wedding, so I don’t have to stress out so much, hahaha.
