Some couples who have the wedding budget choose to outsource everything and buy as much as they can. However, whether you’ve got the budget or not, doing a little DIY on your wedding is potentially one of the most satisfying things you can do. Not only do you save a little, which could potentially go towards other things (hello, honeymoon!), you add your own unique touch to your big day. Making your big day as personalized as possible is bound to make it much more meaningful for you. Here are a few things you should definitely DIY for your wedding!
How much decor you actually have to DIY will largely depend on where you choose to get married. Some venues may not need much decor to enhance the setting at all, while others might need a lot. However, it depends on the look you’re going for. You can easily make vintage looking signage, bunting, and other cool decor items that will add to the personality of your wedding.
The Hair and Makeup
You know how you like your hair and makeup, so do it yourself. Do you really want to risk having it done on your big day, only to hate it? Of course there are exceptions if you’ve had a trial, and you trust the person. However, there are a plethora of tutorials out there that could teach you exactly what to do. With the same amount of money you could buy new products to use again and again, rather than a one time deal!
This might sound scary, but according to www.allcakeprices.com, it’s pretty easy to make a yummy, pretty cake yourself. Look at it this way. People are going to eat it anyway. It’s all well and good spending a fortune on sit down meals, but spending a ridiculous amount of money on a cake seems a bit extortionate. You could even make cupcakes if you preferred!
The wedding playlist will ideally have something for everyone. It should have lots of different genres and songs that will get people on the dancefloor. Do you want a cheesy DJ to do that, or do you want to do it?
Centerpieces are super simple to make. You could even place a few handpicked flowers in a glass jar for something beautiful yet easy.
Making high quality invites is a breeze. You can find everything you’re looking for in a craft shop, and create invites that give people an idea of what your wedding is all about.
Of course, you probably shouldn’t attempt to DIY these things alone. Make sure you get the groom involved, and your friends and family members. Chances are, they will be more than happy to help take some of the stress off you. If you really want to, you could even tell them that it’s your wedding present. You’ll feel much less stressed and you won’t believe how much you can save. With the skills, you could make anything. If you’re an experienced dressmaker, make your own wedding dress! Go against the grain for your wedding and make it uniquely you. Have a wonderful day!
