Read on to see how much this DIY dapper Deco wedding cost and details about their DIY decorations. Please note that costs change as the years go by, and prices are subject to change. This is just one couple’s breakdown to give you a rough estimate on how much a wedding like this may cost you.

Our total cost came out to ~$22,000. This was mostly due to the fact that we had a plated meal and delicious french wine/champagne (the groom insisted :) ). Without the extra food costs this wedding could've been done for much less. Here is the breakdown of the DIY elements:

Dress: $900 materials from Mood
15 Table Runners: $55 for material & $15 for tassles
15 Cigar Boxes: $30
Paper Flowers: maybe $5-$7 per box for supplies, so about $105 total
Flower Chandelier: no more than $5 total
Book, Music & Map Flowers: nothing (note the book page flowers were both English and French to include Romaric and his family)
Wreathes on the Stockroom and Mahler doors: book and music paper flowers about $5 each
Jars: collected and cleaned for free
Pre-filled Votives Spray Painted Gold: 5 boxes @ $5/box
