6 DIY Wedding Project Fails

Don’t get us wrong: We love a fun do-it-yourself wedding project here and there. But sometimes it’s just so much better to leave the wedding decor (not to mention the cake!) up to the pros.

DIY Dyed Lemons

Lemons are a great thing to add to punch or water. This bride wanted to dye them different colors to make a drink more appealing -- her result didn't turn out quite right.

DIY Yarn Balls

That model picture looks great and would be beautiful as reception décor – however this project doesn’t look quite like the model. This is one of the most famous “Pinterest fails” on Pinstrosity!

Lucky for this bride she realized her RSVP misspelling and corrected it, but she posted it online to give the world a good laugh!

DIY Wedding Cake

This bride had her own mother bake her wedding cake and turned her in for a "cake wreck." Sometimes it's best to leave things to the professionals.
