It's no secret that I'm having a largely DIY wedding. I absolutely love my projects and I love that it will make our wedding original and "us." Sometimes I feel like I take it too far though and insist on doing something myself just because I know I can and I end up spending more money and time on it than it's worth.
I honestly JUST came to the realization last week that it's OK if some of the things in my wedding are store bought. My mom and I were at Hobby Lobby and all of their wedding stuff was 50% off. I'd seen their pomanders there before, but of course had always thought to myself, 'I could make those myself so easily.' That may be true, but I couldn't make them for less than $5 each (which is what they were on sale for) and it may cost me a bit of my sanity at this point. So we bought the pomanders for my flower girls to carry down the aisle. And they're going to be adorable. And if anyone even notices my store bought pomanders instead of the insane cuteness of my two flower girls, they're ridiculous.
We did add some hot pink ribbon loops so that they'll coordinate a little better with the flower girl outfits, but that's it! And like I said, who's going to notice with these cuties?
If you're a fellow DIY bride, have you come to the same realization?
PS - Speaking of DIY, I was the first DIY bride featured by Kayleigh at My I-Do It Yourself Wedding!
