Wedding DIY: What to do Yourself
One of the best parts about getting married is that you get to plan a day which is the perfect combination of yours and your partner’s specific tastes. It is a day which not only represents your love and your relationship, but your union together, and choosing every individual element which will combine to create your perfect day is almost as special as the big day itself.
Whether you’re choosing to stick to a limited budget or simply add a personalised stamp to your special day, it’s undeniable that personalised touches are a stunning finish to a special union. Whether you’re getting crafty yourself or are fortunate enough to know someone who has a special talent, including some special and personal touches will truly take your day to the next level, creating a selection of stunning keepsakes which you can take home and keep forever after the magical day is done.
We thought we’d give you a little run down of which areas of your wedding can benefit from a stunning personal touch. Firstly, your stationery. Wedding stationery is important because it runs throughout the entire duration of your wedding, from your save the date cards to your wedding invitations. Opting for DIY wedding stationery is a cute and personal touch that will impress all of your guests. Why not get crafty with some ribbon and stamps or ask a clever friend to help you out!
You can also create some gorgeous table centrepieces with a little touch of DIY. From candles and ribbons, gemstones and flowers, creating something which perfectly reflects your special union.
You can also choose to DIY your wedding cake – whether you’re good at baking yourself or know someone who is, opting for a cake made my hand will not only help you enjoy your day, but will truly impress your guests too.
From place names to wedding favours, chair decorations to bunting, there are endless DIY opportunities for your special day. The most important thing of all is that you choose to utilise your craftsmanship skills in a way which will truly enhance your wedding planning experience – and certainly not as something which will add to the stress of the big day!
