We're doing almost everything DIY for ours. I agree to skip the word wedding in all searches. Not only are things usually more expensive, they are also usually cookie-cutter, generic. I found invitation paper/envelope sets at: www.southwestannouncements.com **did my own printing, but pieced together the cut papers I wanted & I found the colors to be trueIn doing our own centerpieces, I am skipping flowers and using vases/apothecary jars with candy and other fillers. Then I'm making little boxes with ribbons/flowers in our colors and guests can fill their own. I'm doing different candy on each table (to encourage mingling.) Little boxes, jars, etc can be found at most craft stores like Michaels, JoAnns, etc. Favorite sites for my centerpieces: www.save-on-crafts.com (vases and misc) www.ohnuts.com www.candywarehouse.com www.bestbuycandy.com www.orientaltrading.comI am doing ribbon boutonnieres. The Knot has some samples on line or you can see step-by-step instructions for one style at: http://hiphostess.blogspot.com/2009/09/diy-ribbon-boutonniere.htmlThe last item I'm working on is not a DIY myself, but someone could always look at adapting the idea. I am putting together a matted/framed series of letters/numbers as a wedding gift to my fiance. It will look like the old fashioned business "shingles" that were hung in small towns etc. Ours will say "Belt House, est. 2010" in black/white photographs (of everyday items but from angles to resemble letters/numbers.) Check out www.alteredalphabet.com to see what I'm trying to describe.I hope some of this is helpful for my fellow DIY-ers!
