    Hi ladies,

    I have done a couple of my own DIY projects for this wedding, so I thought I would share and maybe it will give inspiration to someone! I never thought I was creative/talented enough for DIY, but it's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it!

    I started with my DIY invitations for the DW and the AHR: bought from Michaels and added my own coloured ribbons, seashells, flowers, etc to make personalized:

    I DIY my own guest book and pen, was bought plain white by my MOH and FSIL, but I decorated it with our wedding color ribbons to match the invitations. I also used a seashell and glued a ribbon on and added some sand for holding the rings. My bouquets were not DIY, they were made by an etsy seller - jdleggans. I wish I would have found the DIY part of this forum beforehand though, because I think I could have made this bouquet myself and saved myself a little cash that way. Oh well! I love them!

    My MOH also bought me a garter, but I wanted to make it more "beachy" so I added a seashell.

    Here are some of my DIY (Vistaprint) purchases - all for free - only paid $30 for shipping:

    magnets, business cards (for maraca tags), and welcome postcards for OOTs bags.

    I also bought some "I do" stickers on ebay and they will be my something blue! :)

    And this is my favourite DIY so far, my t-shirts! After looking around for rhinestones at Michaels, and realizing how expensive and time consuming it would be, I asked a seller on etsy to make the transfers for me, but I picked out my shirts and ironed them on this weekend. I'm very happy with how they turned out! :)

    Okay, well that's it for now! I hope you girls like it!

        Wow those are some great DIY projects. Your invitations look awesome.

        Question about the free stuff from Vista print..was it a promotion? I love the tote bag so cute and useful for the beach. Love it.

            Hi there! Thanks! :) I only ordered one of those personalized totes for myself - it was vistaprints "one free tote, one free pen, one free...." email that they send out. You can do up all your free stuff - as long as it's not more than ten items, and then you just have to pay shipping. I got a free tote, pen, 250 business cards, 50 postcards, 25 magnets, free t-shirt, free mousepad - using their free email offer. If you want to get their free offers, you just have to sign up for an account (free), and they will send you emails with offers.

                      All of your projects came out great! I love the "I Do" on the bottom of your shoes! Very cute idea! I might have to steal that one.
