Hi,

In addition to planning my own upcoming wedding, I'm working on a story for the Chicago Tribune about Do-It-Yourself wedding projects and ideas. If you are doing anything for your wedding yourself (from making your own veil to assembling your own favors or anything else you can think of) please e-mail me at kkridel@tribune.com Any ideas are welcome.

Thanks, Kristie Kridel

Hi Kristie-

I am not done planning my wedding, but I did/am planning to do DIY invitations, unity candle, table numbers, escort cards, sweets table, favors, programs, slideshow, etc. I got much of my inspiration from Paper-Source or TheKnot.com.

I can be reached at bookworm520@comcast.net.

Best,
Melissa Jones

I am planning some DIY wedding projects. We did do our save-the-dates, maps, meal response cards all ourselves and are also planning on doing the table numbers, escort cards, menus, favors, and programs ourselves. You can email me at mahoyt@hotmail.com.

We had DIY unique Mardi Gras and Norwegian favors, pew decorations, invitations and programs, table numbers, and authentic Norwegian wedding cakes. A clash of cultures with Norwegian church wedding and Mardi Gras reception. Couldn't have been more fun.

I'm DIYing everything I possibly can. I just may be DIYing my way to complete insanity. I even got my FH into the DIY mindset; he made our own "wedsite": www.pielcafe.com/hastalamuerte . He'll be launching it soon. Please feel free to contact me: hastalamuerte082009@gmail.com.
