Wedding planning can be absolutely consuming to say the least. If you plan on buying and hiring people to do everything, don’t be surprised if your budget and stress level goes up the roof. There are certainly things that you can DIY instead of buy for your wedding. Some of these ideas involve easy projects that you can do within a few hours and cut down your budget. And you don’t even have to be an artsy person to pull them off.
So set aside a fresh piece of paper on your wedding planning notebook to write a DIY projects list. And make sure you include the following wedding DIY ideas in that list.
1. Ribbon tied chairs
You’ve probably seen these beautifully decorated wedding hairs around. This is something you can certainly pull off on your own. No need to hire a decorator to do work.
2. Ring bearers pillows
No you don’t need to get this in a store. How about buying a simple pillow and decorating it in a style of your choice?
3. Aisle decorations
If you are having a garden wedding then you can decorate the aisle by hanging flowers over the chairs. Use daisies or lavenders and some small glass containers.
4. Creative flower vases
