Top Wedding DIY Ideas
DIY projects are a fun way to put your signature stamp on your wedding day. It can be anything as simple as drying flower petals for guests to toss as you exit the venue, to something elaborate like hand-written invitations with calligraphy script and stamped wax. To give you a few ideas, below are some top suggestions for your Pin-spiration.
Mason jars are all the rage right now, and so is vintage. Create bespoke centerpieces with the widely available jars, or hunt for vintage glassware and pieces. You can fill the receptacles with flowers, beads, candies, confetti—whatever your heart desires. Not a vintage gal? Use the centerpiece to make a statement that speaks to something important to you and your partner. It could be a photo tree with filled with significant memories, postcards from travels together, stacks of your favorite CDs (might as well put out records). Whatever fits with the theme of your wedding or speaks to you, go for it.
Beyond the small plastic bottles of bubbles, give your guests small care packages to remind them of all the fun they had. You can personalize a wide range of goodies with the initials of you and your spouse, so go ham—and don’t forget the humor. Include things like a personalized “do not disturb” sign for their hotel room; hand sanitizer; mints; and tea. For kicks, toss in some Advil and Wine Wipes to catch the spills. And don’t forget a thank-you note!
For the truly crafty and ambitious, try creating your own flower arrangements. If you live near a flower market, you can find flowers in bulk and go wild creating your own bouquets and other floral decorations. Just be sure, if you think you’ll need some guidance, to consult with a professional so that you can achieve the desired aesthetic and have all the right materials on hand to properly craft your arrangements and care for them.
