I'm a great believer in DIY-ing without the Y...that's using your time to the best of your advantage and if craft isn't your thing, then why not consider supporting an independent producer, artist, craftsperson/genius and get them to do all of the hard work for you.
Etsy has become such a wonderful go to place for beautiful, unique details that you can add to your wedding design and attire...I could spend many an hour there.
Rich and I are lucky enough to live in London, a very short flight to Europe and we regularly take advantage of crazy cheap flights (even if they do leave at the crack of dawn) to have weekend escapes all over the place. One of our secret weapons is Hotels.com. Not only are they extremely competitive with pricing, they also have a fabulous buy 10 nights, get 1 night free...a deal we have taken advantage of a number of times now (and combined that with cash back and man, have you got yourself a fab deal.
This is excellent for honeymoons and wedding accommodation...book family rooms on your account and watch the free nights come in!
