There are many things that you could DIY on your own for the wedding. That's if you allow yourself to have at least a year's buffer to do the planning, which I also felt that time is really running short now. And I have a passion on doing such things, I really do love art crafts. I admit that I am such a perfectionist as well that I prefer to have things done by myself instead of paying a wedding planner and to feel that it is not the way I want. Also, the cost for all these are really cheap it's more of just time and efforts. DIY wedding guest 'book'
Wedding guest books are so old fashioned and boring at times.
So I did some google and pinterest and found these:
and I did a version of my own. I am still cutting those love shapes until now
So how this works is that guest will sign on the love shape drop inside the frame and then fill them up.
Cardboards - FOC some left overs somewhere
Frame - Ikea http://www.ikea.com/my/en/catalog/products/20167616/
To create buffer between the frame and the back so that the thickness is just right for the love to be dropped inside - Foam tapes
As for the middle part, I use foam paper to cut a love and then strings as decoration, these materials are widely available at any stationary shops.Stop motion save the date video
Drew and cut these figuring out to make a stop motion video of us, something like save the date.
Then I use iMovie to stitch about 100-200 frames up and created the video, these took me about 2-3 months to complete after a few nights of hard work.
