Simply Top 10 DIY Wedding Ideas

Simply 10 Ten DIY Wedding Ideas Simply Radiant Events

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.

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.
