With the invention of Pinterest and the Internet DIY is everywhere! I have seen so many brides interested in saving money and want that extra special homemade touch to their wedding. I am all for saving money and doing things yourself. However, please just note that is very easy to come up with a bunch of ideas and projects for your wedding and run out of time. Just be mindful of what you choose to make for your wedding that you will have enough time to complete the project. If you start running out of time make sure to ask your wedding planner to lend a helping hand to alleviate some of the stress.
Some of these ideas don’t even need to necessary be for weddings, some can be used for other events as well.
Here are the Simply Top 10 DIY wedding Ideas that I personally have seen in the weddings that I helped plan and coordinate.
1. DIY Wedding Programs
This bride used some craft paper and printed everything on her computer then sewed them up with her sewing machine. Very simple and very cute.
2. DIY Wedding Favors
This bride took wine glasses then painted the base with chalkboard paint. Inside the classes were come custom matches and a piece of chalk to write your name on your wine glass.
3. DIY Thank you Cards
This couple took this picture on their wedding day then inserted the photo into cards…BAM instant thank you cards!
4. DIY Guest Book
This couple used their engagement photos and turned it into a photo book. They left every other page blank so their guests could sign their marriage wishes for the couple.
5. DIY Light Up Initials
Theses letters were bought at a local craft store. Then they drilled wholes into the letters and placed in some lights. Very fun way to add some light and décor for an outdoor reception.
6. DIY Chalkboard Signs
This bride is a teacher so she incorporated chalkboard signs all throughout their wedding.
7. DIY Escort Cards
This couple loved their dog and had little touches of their Golden Retriever throughout their reception. Even their escort cards were dog bones they printed out at home and tacked on a tack board.
8. DIY Photo Booth
This couple purchased some props, a backdrop and some disposable cameras. Guests were able to use the cameras at the photo booth and throughout the reception to take photos. Any leftover cameras they took with them on their honeymoon.
9. Front Entrance Décor
Initials, some greenery and some floral wire can go a long way. Check out this adorable sign!
10. Bird Card for Cards
Simply decorated bird cage with some ribbon, birds and last initial.
