It’s that time again – I’m beyond excited to announce our next DIY Contest! If you think the last one was popular, hold on to your chairs, because this one is going to be off the charts. Our DIY Contest participants will have carte blanche to create their do-it-yourself projects (vintage, modern, it’s all game!)…which means that there is nothing stopping you from coming up with the best DIY projects.

Because DIY projects take some time to prepare, we’re giving extra time to participants. You will have till Sunday, October 3rd to send over your submission(s). That gives everyone plenty of time to put their crafty gloves on and get to work! Your project can be anything wedding related with the exception of wedding invitations where the core of the project is graphic design. You can submit as many projects as you can handle!

This time around we will be awarding First, Second and Third places prizes.

  • First place will receive $500
  • Second place will receive a $300 gift card to ModCloth
  • Third place will receive a Silhouette Machine, a $299 value

We will be posting our favorite entries starting on October 4th. Once we start publishing submissions we will not be able to accept new ones, so make sure to beat the deadline! This time around we’re adding a panel of DIY expert judges to choose the finalists, which will compete for the prizes. For general guidelines and policies, click here. Everyone is welcome to enter: brides, Etsy sellers, event designers, …everyone with a good idea!
