When you and your partner have always taken matters into your hands, you’re not going to pass on the opportunity to curate your wedding yourself. Cookie-cutter stationery and generic themes likely don’t fit the image you’ve envisioned for your special day. For the DIY-inclined, here are few ideas to make your wedding day unique, from DIY save the date cards to homemade wedding favors.
Making a Lot Out of Little
The key to a successful DIY wedding is to make the most out of your available resources. For example, simple table decorations are a clever way to integrate crafty, inexpensive objects into your décor theme. From small floral arrangements to decorative napkin bands, there are endless ways to accentuate creativity throughout your design.
Customized Save the Date Cards
DIY save the date cards are an easy way to express your individuality among friends and family. Customizable stationery allows you to create an entirely unique design from scratch, incorporating elements of your personality that only you could capture. Upload and arrange your own photos, text, and borders for a truly unique card.
Homemade Gift Bags
You don’t want to leave your guests empty handed when they leave. Assemble personalized, homemade parting gifts for your friends and family and show how much you truly appreciate their company. For instance, design customizable tote bags with your guests’ names on them and fill each one with a personalized picture frame to commemorate the day. Some other DIY wedding favors ideas include:
• Homemade treats
• Small potted plants or succulents
• Personalized candles
• Custom coasters and other small home goods
When you have creativity on your side, there is no limit to what you can do yourself in preparation for your wedding. Remember, be realistic about your DIY goals. After all, your wedding is supposed to be a celebration of the love between you and your partner, not an excuse for undue stress in your life.
