Small budget--where to start with DIY??

We have a small budget and I want to Do as much as I can myself but I am feeling really overwhelmed at the moment. 


Any ideas, suggestions, advice etc on where to start with DIY projects?


We are getting married in Feb. 2013. Lunch time- simple, budget, DIY.


Our colors 


We haven't booked the hall yet, we also need to make arrangements for the justice of the peace.


We are having the ceremony in the same room as the reception.


Colors are pink, chocolate brown, and cream.


We were thinking possibly using fake flowers.


I have my wedding dress, jewelry, and undergarments. We bought faux flower petals for the flowergirl. We got our invitations which we will be doing on the computer (any idea how to jazz them up). We got paper lanterns to decorate with in our colors (pink and chocolate brown). We got some white Christmas lights. We ordered our rings this week.


Any ideas?

First I think you need to know where you are in the planning process. Make a list of the things you need to do and the order of priority. That will give you an Idea of what to tackle first. Also you need to do alot of research to make sure that whatever you will DIY will actually be cheaper than using a vendor.

What kind of DIY projects are you wanting to do? Are you wanting to DIY invitations, programs, favors(maybe), card box, centerpieces, etc??


I did a few DIY projects, I bought my bridesmaids a wine glass to have for the night and spray painted the bottom in chalkboard paint, and added gems around the top of the glass. I made my program fans, made and designed all my centerpieces, a did a few more projects. I don't have them all listed but hopefully I can get them up soon!
