DIY weddings are more popular than ever right now, with brides scouring pinterest for unique and creative wedding details! Check out these these top projects…
A fun and cost-effective alternative to traditional welcome drinks, ‘Pimp your Prosecco’ bars are the must-have detail for 2017 DIY weddings. Super easy to create and sure to get your guests talking! Just don’t forget to check with your venue about corkage fees to avoid any nasty surprise charges.
Rest your feet
We’ve seen this idea a lot over the last couple of years in DIY weddings, but it never gets old! If you’ve shelled out for a DJ or live band, you’ll want your guests up on that dance floor, so encourage the ladies to kick off their heels with a basket of flips flops in varying sizes. A thoughtful touch we know they’ll love, and a sweet keepsake of your special day.
Keep cards safe
Another easy yet functional project to get stuck into is creating your own card post box. Anything can be used to store your wedding cards and gifts, from a rustic wooden crate to an old suitcase or vintage birdcage. Decorate according to your scheme and create a sign to match. Simple!
Everyone loves a bit of wedding reception photobooth action, so get creative and set to work collecting props and a backdrops for some hilarious photos to look back on. Either set up a camera on a tripod or, for a modern alternative, create a ‘Selfie Station’ and ask guests to share their selfies under a certain hashtag on Instagram.
These are so simple to create yourself, no matter what your wedding theme. From printed numbers in vintage frames and hand written chalk board signs, to wine bottle labels and wooden plaques – all it takes is a little imagination to make gorgeous numbers that are part of your table centre display.
