Summer is wedding season – and there’s no better way to save some $$$ than by DIY’ing certain aspects of your ceremony (plus it adds an oh-so-important personal touch to everything!) Here are some great ideas for some DIY Summer nuptials (many of which can be used instead for any fancy party or get-together on your calendar!):
