Going D.I.Y. for your wedding is not only creative, but smart!Â If you have a knack for making beautiful items with your hands, or know someone who does– this is a great time to show your stuff and really wow them!Â When isn’t the time for D.I.Y?Â When you don’t have the time, ability or resources.Â Also consider the formality of your event– don’t skimp if you are having a formal or ultra-formal affair.Â D.I.Y doesn’t have to look like you made it.Â What are some good projects?
- Rhinestone monogram cake topper as pictured (yes, that’s a D.I.Y.!)
- Centerpieces (check the blog for a fabulous example)
- Programs, invites, menu cards
- OOT Guest bags
The possibilities are literally endless!Â If you’re not too crafty, enlist the help of someone who is. Make sure you allot enough time in your wedding planning to create your masterpieces as last minute jobs will look just like that– last minute jobs!
