D-I-Y (Do-It-Yourself) activities have always been a form of self expression and creativity. What’s great about a DIY wedding is that it can be a fun, budget (and eco-friendly) contribution to your wedding as well as a good way to add personal touches that you & your guests can enjoy!
We’d like to share some of our favorite ways that DIY can be incorporated into your wedding! These are easy & unique ways to make a splash on your wedding day!
Mason Jars – what we love so much about Mason Jars is that there is so much variety with how they can be used. They can serve cocktails, act as lighting fixtures [by adding candles or glow in the dark lights], sit as table centerpieces [for the flowers or other detailing] or be used to provide the wedding favors!
Wedding Favors – Couples want to show their guests their appreciation and support by providing thoughtful gift favors at their wedding. While this could become a pricey task based on the number of guests, there are tons of fun, easy, out-of-the-box ideas! Dessert jars, engraved jewelry boxes, or easy-wrap items [see to the left — use of colored polka dot stickers and yarn] are a few great ways to keep costs down.
Floral Decor – floral accents are one of our favorite parts of the wedding decor! This is a great option for people who are having outdoor weddings in severe weather climates and fresh flowers could become compromised. Materials individuals use for DIY flowers include felt, clay, coffee pots, newspaper, tissue paper & paper bags!
Place Cards – Another way for couples to incorporate creativity while keeping costs low! We find that many couples use this specific opportunity to keep “in theme” of their wedding by matching the place cards in this manner [see left for a Chinese food-themed place card setting & decorative maps!]
