DIY Wedding Projects

Planning a wedding can be a long and stressful process. When looking for DIY wedding ideas, the easier each DIY wedding idea is to accomplish, the better. They're so aesthetically pleasing that your guests won't notice that they're easy-to-do projects. DIY wedding decorations can save you some money! Here are some DIY wedding projects you can do to save some money:

 

 

Arrange Your Bouquets

It should be easy for you to create bouquet arrangements on your own since they should come from the heart and reflect your personal style. Fill in your mix with loose stems from a local florist or market, or use foraged flowers, local greenery, or picks straight from the garden. Add a little flow to the base by wrapping it in ribbon or leaving long trailing fabrics! 

 

The wedding day schedule

There are many ways to use a wooden pallet. Standing upright allows you to hold the wedding day schedule upright. Your guests will be kept informed without having to use paper with this fantastic idea! 

 

Hanging floral decor

Decorative tassel garlands may also be a good option. Flowers and strings can be used to create a beautiful backdrop.

 

An origami backdrop for a wedding

Featuring a delicate and airy design, this backdrop will look anything but homemade and can be used for a variety of different wedding themes. With ribbon, string, and wax paper, you can create a beautiful origami backdrop.

 

Organize an exit toss

The eco-friendly alternative to exit tossing and sparkler send-offs can also be a fun crafting project. With fresh petals, olive or eucalyptus leaves, fragrant lavender buds, or aromatic herbs, fill paper cones, linen sachets, or any other creative vessel you can imagine.

 

Basket for Flower Girl

As a last-minute decoration, make a basket filled with silk or paper petals. Your florist can add fresh petals to your flower girl's basket before the ceremony if you wish.

 

Wedding centerpieces with succulents

Make your own wedding centerpieces with these cute garden-inspired ideas. Succulents in recycled planters will give your guests a breath of fresh air.

 

Balloons for your wedding that are festive

Your wedding will look beautiful with golden balloon tails. Make your balloons look festive by hanging silver and gold foil garlands from them. Brighten the party with gold paint balloons or confetti balloons.

 

Create a backdrop for the ceremony

Generally, nature is the best--and most budget-friendly (it's included in the venue fee)--option for ceremony backdrops. However, sometimes you need a little something extra for your altar. Use flowers, branches, greenery, candles, saplings, or lanterns to frame your ideal snapshot for the vow exchange.

 

Table number stand made of wood

You can also decorate your wedding reception with upcycled card holders. Using recycled wood or wine corks, you can make wooden place cards for your wedding. Simply cut a slit in the middle of the cardstock numbers to keep them upright.
