So, you’ve decided to have a creative DIY wedding, but not sure where to start? There are definitely some areas that are easier to DIY than others, but what are they, and what should you be looking at first? We’re here to help you decide and bring you our 5 key areas that you can easily DIY for your creative DIY wedding day!
DIY Wedding Stationery
Let’s start from the beginning; stationery is one of the main areas which you can easily create yourself for your creative DIY wedding. From Save The Dates, to invitations and on the day table plans, it’s something that is easily accessible and that you can personalise to your liking. You will be in control of every aspect meaning you can match everything up. Depending on your creative skills and the time you have, you may want to hand draw something or add a personalised wax seal to the envelopes. The possibilities are endless when it comes to your stationery. Use vintage frames to hang your table plan in for an outdoor summer wedding or add your name place cards into pinecones for an autumnal vibe.
Styling covers a huge area, and there are definitely lots of styling ideas that you can do yourself, but with your own spin on it. Once you have your colour scheme or theme chosen, and you know what kind of area you have to work with, it’s time to get creative. From hanging flower filled lightbulbs from the ceiling, using fairy lights to create an epic backdrop, or creating a styled DIY polaroid photobooth, the possibilities are endless. It’s about finding the right vibe for your big day and doing your research to find inspiration for what your vision is.
Create Your Own Playlists
Probably the easiest one, right? We listen to and add to playlists every day! So, from your morning ‘getting ready playlist’ to your evening reception playlist; all you have to do is sit down with your other half and get writing down your ultimate songs to party to! You could even put a song request card in with your invites; then your guests can send back their requests and you know you’re keeping everyone happy with the songs you’ll be dancing to, and no-one has any excuses about not getting on that dance floor.
Make Wedding Confetti
Think outside the box when it comes to your confetti. This is definitely an area where you can be ethically minded too. Why not get your family and friends to dry out flower petals for you throughout the planning process? If you’re having a vintage wedding, you can use different shaped hole punches and make confetti out of old broken books bought from a charity shop, or even use leaves to create your confetti for your big day. There are seriously so many ideas on this one!
DIY Wedding Favours
You either love them or hate them, but if you’re having them you want your guests to love them! Making something is much more of a personal touch when it comes to your creative DIY wedding. Think about your theme when it comes to this one, if you’re having a vintage wedding you could make mini pots of jam with their names on the jar, this could also double up as a name place! If you have a more luxury vibe, handmade truffles in personalised boxes are the way to go. Or if you have a greener day planned you could make succulent mini planters, use them in clusters as your centrepieces for your décor and then give them to your guests as they leave.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to these key areas for your creative DIY wedding. It’s about deciding what areas are most important to you, what vibe you want for your wedding day, and doing your research for the best inspiration! Then all you have to do is get DIY-ing, and make sure you have plenty of people on hand to help you out.
