Jill and Ben borrowed every inch of talent their family and friends could offer them for their handmade orange and yellow wedding.

With a budget under 12K the benefit of keeping things in the family are huge! To see the full budget breakdown keep reading and visit the full gallery here to see all of the DIY details captured by Josh McCullock Photography.

From the Bride

My sister did all our programs and invites. She did AMAZING! We tried to make our wedding as personalized as we could that reflected who we are as a couple. It was a lot of tough work but so worth it.

A DIY wedding can be time consuming and hard because you have to think of every detail but then again….that's the best part! Everything has your personal touch and style on it and that’s what will make your wedding unique and stand out. And don’t be afraid to ask your bridesmaids for help. We had several wine and craft nights together trying to get things done.

Don’t be afraid to splurge on a good photographer. We splurged on ours and it was well worth it. After the wedding is over and years down the road, you will always have those photos that captured your favorite moments of the most important day of your life.

I had my grandmothers, sisters, and my mom make different pies and cupcakes for our grab and go table for those who wanted a quick dessert. My husband also roasted his own coffee beans to give all our guest as party favors
