WEDDING DETAILS YOU CAN DIY
Getting married can be really expensive! You’ll find that a wedding ceremony and reception will almost always end up costing you more than you originally thought, as there’s always last-minute extras that crop up when you least expect them.
Thankfully, there are a few things that you can do yourself. With the DIY ideas below, you’ll be able to cut costs in your wedding a bit:
TABLE RUNNER NUMBERS
Instead of having to print out fancy table number cards (which can be surprisingly expensive!), just make a stencil and use it to spray paint the table number onto the runner. It will look very elegant if it’s done right.
STENCILLED PAPER GIFT BAGS
Don’t give away uber-fancy gift bags, keep it simple and use paper bags for your favours instead. Use stencils to spray paint your gift bags will elegant designs, and use ribbons to make them decorative and festive.
CONFETTI IN A JAR
If you’re going to use confetti, it’s best to make your own instead of buying it. You can put the confetti through your cross cut shredder, and use any coloured paper you want. Instead of buying wicker baskets just to hold the confetti, use old jam jars for a rustic look.
WEDDING GLITTER GLOBE
This is a surprisingly easy craft to make, and you’ll find that it will be very elegant! Simply sprinkle glitter along the bottom of a glass jar, and fill it to the brim with water. Glue a man and woman figure onto the underside of the jar lid, and screw the lid on.
USE FLOWER JARS
Instead of buying or renting elegant vases for the centerpieces and the floral arrangements, why not keep it simple and use a flower or two per table? Place them in a glass jar, and it can look absolutely beautiful.
JELLY BEAN FAVOURS
Your wedding favours can be nice and simple, and who doesn’t love jelly beans? Buy three or four colours of jelly beans at your local candy store, and add them into tall jars to make decorative and delicious masterpieces.
DIP DYED NAPKINS
Keep the table linens simple, and use a dip-dye process to give them beautiful colour. Stick with just one or two colours, and leave less than an inch of cloth in the colours. The napkins will soak up the colours, making them beautiful and colourful.
Instead of using all flowers, why not break out the origami paper and brush up on those old skills? You can make a bridal bouquet from origami paper, and you’ll find that it will be a simpler, more unique type of flower arrangement!
