DIY or not? For some of you, it's a simple 'nope'. I've heard it from lots of our Modettes on FB. "No way, I don't have a creative bone in my body." Well, that doesn't matter - there are ways around your... umm... lack of creativity (which I'm sure is in there somewhere).
As I'm sure you're aware (if you've been checking wedding blogs, sites and mags) DIY weddings are so hot they're boiling at the moment... everywhere I turn lately there is proof that creative brides around the world are sewing, gluing, cutting, printing, and creating their own signature elements for their wedding... something that is going to look stylishly DIY without looking daggily home-made.
If you are one of the many brides wishing they had of paid more attention in art and craft class at school, wishing they could pull off a stylish DIY wedding, but wouldn't know where to start - I have the answer.
(Whisper) Cheat and buy it...
