When it comes to DIY weddings, you can be as creative as far as your talents will stretch, or if they are minimal, then why not check out some simple online guides to learn new ideas and techniques.

A Welcoming Entrance

Make guests immediately feel at ease with a heart felt sign and one that also gives clear instructions or directions, so as not to confuse them. This can easily be done through leftover wooden crates or cheap chalkboards. Here’s a few simple ideas you can recreate in your own way.

Decorations Made Simple

If you want something quick and simple then mason jars are always a backup plan, they look elegant and stylish and all you need is some water, tea-lights and ribbon or twine to decorate the neck. Or perhaps you could try floral or heart shaped garlands, they are really easy and fun to make, just ask some of your maids over for wine and snacks whilst you conjure up some decorative drapes and chat about the impending wedding day.

Dream Favors

DIY wedding favors and gifts can be so easily and cheaply made, without looking cheap! The great things about favors is that due to the shear volume of guests, it means that you are going to need a lot of one thing, so for example, a lot of candy or chocolates and that equals a big discount. We all know that prices go down for larger quantities. Another quick and easy tip is to have your very own personalized stickers made up, they are so many affordable online printers right now, like Vista print and Moo, it’s never been easier.

Tactile Invitations

When it comes to the invitations, I always suggest to consider having your own personalized stamp made, as it will really cut out those expensive print costs and makes fiddly areas that are hard to print so much easier, like the envelope seals, plus there’s so much enjoyment in stamping away and you’ll get to keep it at the end!

Eye-catching Centrepieces & Table Numbers

Focus on the season that you plan to wed in as this will really help with the DIY preparations, if you are planning a fall wedding then make use of cheap seasonal pumpkins and get crafty with paint or carving numbers into them. All you need is a steady hand and a little bit of practice. Why not use up all those empty wine bottles you’ve been saving for recycling? They can easily be painted according to your chosen theme and either filled with fresh seasonal posies or add a simple but stylish number sign on the front.
