Not a DIY expert?

Many Brides are super crafty, super creative and innovative, and are blessed with nimble fingers. So, it is inevitable that DIY Weddings are now "In Vogue."
However, some Brides are wonderfully blessed in other areas of expertise, don't want to spend a fortune, and understandably, the idea of jumping on the DIY Wedding bandwagon scares the bejeezus out of some of them.
But don't panic!
It doesn't HAVE to be DIY, and not everyone charges a fortune for wedding decor.
Here are some ideas to help you overcome your DIY fears;

Favour Boutique - Nobody will even need to know it wasn't you. =]
Great range of different favour ideas for any Wedding.
I personally love how cute these fans, and mini cookie/candy jars are.

Paperless Wedding is a fantastic way to; 1) do your part for the Earth, 2) Save a whole CHUNK of money, and 3) save yourself from agonizing over what theme, what text and what card to use for your invitations. [You just chose a ready made website theme, and click!]
The website is really cute, too! Save the dates are FREE, and they also do Wedding Packages, for no more than $115.

But if none of these ideas *quite* fit your 'DIY - but not' Wedding, remember that you probably have at least a couple of friends who are crafty-keen, and will be more than willing to help you out; make your favours, learn to make origami crane mobiles, print menu's, paint blackboards..... You just need to ask. =]
