10 - You've totally nailed all your DIY attempts, the DIY judges would give you a perfect score!

1 - Your DIYs have been a bit of a dumpster fire and you never want to see the inside of a craft store again.

Where do you fall? How successful have your DIY attempts been?

    2 lol. I have only tried to DIY bouquets so far though, so I still have hope, which is why this is a 2 instead of a -100 hahaha. Definitely going to go with a florist for my flowers now, but still planning on doing a few other DIYs that will hopefully turn out much better than this attempt did!

    10 - my cousin (bridesmaid) took charge on this and already tested some DIY decor items and they look amazing!

    7...tried to DIY the centerpieces, just needed to add some florals to bring it out more. Not doing a whole lot of DIY but it's not as successful as I imagine so that's probably a good thing lol

    10 but only cause I haven’t done any 😂 I’m not a DIY person. If I had done any they’d definitely be a dumpster fire

    9. Did my own invitation/RSVP designs which turned out nicely. Working on the centerpieces and decor now....so far, so good *knocks on wood*. The only one I am fearing trying is making my veil.

    There printed fans for the ceremony was to the way I liked it and with steps of the wedding.

    Ribbons around the hurricane lamps for the head table as stickers for our champagne glasses.

    10 - but I'm also holding myself to high "Etsy-shop" standards lol

    Most of my smaller signs are painted, but for my big Welcome/program sign, I'm designing in Adobe Illustrator since painting is proving to take longer than expecting. Doesn't help that the signs are black canvas and I need 3+ coats of the white paint to look nice.

    So far a 10 but I’m not too deep into the DIY yet. So far I’ve only made a mock centrepiece and a memorial sign

    I mean, the only real 'DIY' I did was our wedding webiste (wix.com + RSVPify.com), and so far so good! Other than that, I've let the pros take care of it hahaha.

    I have not done any DIY yet. We will be doing our wine box and guest book, along with a couple signs, but I am very positive that those will turn out great!

    This is N/A for me - I haven't done any DIY except maybe my sister's proposal box, which I don't count. Other than that, no projects for me - I am just not creative enough.

    Like a 5 haha my DIY would have turned out better if I spell checked or had a second set of eyes before finalizing it and having to redo it. So far so good though
