Since this was my second time around and even thou I never had one first time around. I was shocked by how much everything was. I would look at pictures and google them as DIY and find out many of the things I saw I can make a good effort and attempt to make my own. I have to admit I was being cheap. My venue was at an Italian resturant that was amazing, this made it perfect to actually have the wedding outside in their small courtyard and just move up the stairs for our dinner! No fee was charged so the venue was free! I have to admit I used Esty for a couple of things, and after getting them I realized I could have made them myself! The only thing I left to the pros was my cake, cookies and of course my dress (which I wish I had not been so cheap and bought what I really really liked). After looking at my pictures I could have added more to the deco. For you DIY brides shop Ikea, they have awesome stuff for centerpieces. I know I wished I did.
