I wish we could’ve DIYed more details for our wedding but nevertheless, these are what we managed to DIY:

1. Invitations

This is our major DIY and painstakingly created 150pcs of these.

Front cover design of our invitation features lyrics from our first dance song

Main invitation. I played with typography and “elementary school pad paper lines”

Entourage Page – I kept it simple. I had trouble fitting all our entourage in one page!

RSVP Page – Again, I played with typography here.

2. Wedding Cord

I had sore fingers and developed calluses while doing this cord but I had fun doing it.

Wedding cord made of crystal & czech beads.

3. Groomsmen Boutonniere 

I ordered custom made polymer clay items and turned them into these:

School stuff made of polymer clay + blue fabric + ribbon + fabric flower

Our school chic boutonniere!

4. Arrhae & Ring Pillow

We didn’t have a single photo of our ring pillow and it’s such a bummer but what the heck! We made big fabric flowers for the pillows.

Arrhae pillow. I bought the cloth to create the flowers from Bugis.

Unofficial Photo because our photographers weren’t able to take a photo and I don’t know why!

5. Candles and matches

We also dressed up our candles and matches using the fabric flowers that we created.

Unity candle set

Offertory candles

Simple matches

6. Garter

My mom helped me sew the garter and lace.


7. Bride (and Groom) Prep Door Sign

Ok, just like the ring pillow, our “groom” sign didn’t have a single photo. I don’t want to dwell on it.

Pastel crayons on black construction paper to create the illusion of chalk on blackboard. Wooden picture frame is from Ikea.

8. “Here comes the bride” Sign

I made the signage and asked my brother to create the lettering.

Again, pastel crayon on black construction paper for that “blackboard” feel

9. Wedding Wands

These were pretty easy to make and were used right before we were showered with rose petals!

Bamboo sticks + ribbons

10. Guest Notes Card

We asked our guests to leave notes for us, we made 200pcs of these!!

We used the caricature my brother made for us.

11. VIP place cards

These served as place cards and “slam book” style cards that our VIP guests filled up.

12. Monogram

Our monogram is simple and incorporated the “elementary school pad paper lines”

Created this monogram using Adobe Illustrator
