After getting tons of inspiration from pinterest in the lead up to my wedding the least I can do is show it off and inspire another couple out there to go the DIY route. It's fun, it's a shit load of work and it's totally worth it! Some of the things we made and used are for sale: http://www.gumtree.co.za/a-other/northgate/diy-wedding-kit-for-sale/1001145393280910278461709

My husband wore a different coloured shirt and that is all that separated him from the others. They had clip on bow ties with the same material as the skirts which also had cute sayings like 'you're the one'. The suspenders finished off the look!

The material for the bowties was the same as that used for the bridesmaid's skirts. The groom wore a different colour shirt and shoes to distinguish himself

I'm happy we went with simple for my wedding! I bought the dress for under R900 and had it altered into a circle skirt to make way for my petticoat. The bridesmaids (and groomsmaid) looked great with simple, funky circle skirts and white shirts they felt comfy in Bridesmaids, Bridesmaid Dresses, Wedding Dresses, Diy Wedding Kits, Circle Skirts, Happy We, White Shirts, Looks Great, Felt

We had matching shoes. I'm not a fan of high heels and advised guests not to wear them either because of the field. We were both comfortable and could dance the night away.
