Top ideas for couples who love a DIY wedding

When it comes to wedding planning there are some couples who like the idea of having everything done for them, however, there are also those who love the idea of getting hands on and doing it themselves.

With DIY weddings becoming more and more popular, there are lots of different ideas and inspiration out there for how you can make your wedding your own, and to help you to plan things in, we have put together some of the top ideas for couples who love the idea of a DIY wedding, but who are not quite sure where to start.

Wedding wreath with fairy lights


For those who love the idea of having a wedding packed full of rustic charm, this is the ideal crafty project to get your teeth into.

All you need is a hula hoop, fairy lights and some artificial foliage and you are going to be able to create the most beautiful backdrop for your wedding, be it behind the top table or perhaps in the ceremony room.

Lace flower napkin rings


Napkin rings might not instantly spring to mind when it comes to wedding planning, but they are a detail that we very often see on the tables during the wedding breakfast.

If you like the idea of making these unique to you, then there are tons of great ideas out there on how you can transform them.

However, we have to say that we are a fan of this particular project.

String art hanging


Another great backdrop idea is to transform a simple piece of wool or yarn into a beautiful hanging decoration for your wedding day.

The great thing about this is that not only is it simple to do, and you can choose from a variety of colours, but you also can ensure that your bridal party help out in the making.

You can then keep what you have created and have it as a memento of your amazing day.

DIY wedding invitations

One of the most obvious DIY wedding projects that you can choose is to make your invitations yourself.

In fact, all you need to do is google this phrase and you will be presented with a wealth of different ideas to choose from.

The thing to remember with this is that the more complicated the invitation design then the more of a pain it is going to be to make, particularly if you have 100 or so invites to send out.

Having a DIY wedding is a joy to so many people, it allows them to put their own stamp on the day and feel that they have really had a say in what they want it to look like.

However, if you are thinking about DIY wedding projects then you do need to remember just how busy you are likely to be with other things and keep this in mind when you are considering how much time you have to create some stunning designs.
