DIY Ideas for your wedding

There’s no time like the present to get creative and start preparing some personal touches for your wedding day. You might ask why, but the answer is simple! Adding some DIY touches not only gives your wedding the unique spin it deserves but also saves a few pennies along the way. It’s essential to prepare in advance, DIY jobs take time, but this can also make for a nice bonding session with your mother-in-law or even just to spend some quality time with family members who want to help you out!

Flower Bouquets 

Flowers are a major part of wedding planning; they can also end up being rather pricey. If you’re a woman who’s dreamt of your wedding day all your life, chances are you’ll know exactly what flowers you want in your bouquets. Now all there’s left to do is pop to a trader, buy the flowers in bulk and get arranging! It’s understandable that you may not want to be rushing around the day before your wedding day arranging flowers, which is why many people have them pre-made. But, if flowers are going to be a key part of your wedding then it’s a great money saving way of putting a personal touch to your special day.



If you’ve got a sweet tooth and want to share this with your guests, then why not make a sweet table filled with all of your favourite candy. Go back to your childhood and reminisce on your favourite sweet shop sweets, don’t forget to include a few of your hubby’s favourites too!

Table decorations

You don’t need to leave it all up to the professionals; simple touches such as table decorations are a quick and easy way to save money. Take these little chalkboards for example, get your fancy handwriting out and decorate the tables – it gives a monochrome, classic finish.

Name Cards


Name cards should be something really personal from you to your guests. Whether it’s handwritten, or a shape that reflects you, or your favourite colour, put some thought into your name cards. You could even get creative with some dip dye effects if you’re going for a pastel coloured theme. If you’re opting for classic black and white, practice a little calligraphy and add a little personal message to each guest on his or her name card.


Is there a specific pattern that you love, maybe a Cath Kidston style print or a certain colour combination that you want to fit into your wedding theme? Bunting is surprisingly easy to make yourself! Once you know your theme you can start playing around with creative ideas. It can also prove to be a fun activity that you can enjoy with the rest of the family.
