We are celebrating the DIY wedding this week and we want to share our top five DIY wedding crafts – including everything from favours to table decorations.
The Party Favour Cone is a fantastic decorative piece which is perfect for storing personalised gifts and displaying name tags at the reception tables. You can choose paper to match the colour theme of your wedding or to coordinate with the flowers. You can find instructions for these cones and lots of other wedding favours with paper in our free guide. The instructions also provides directions for how to make a stand to display the cones so you can fill them with sweet treats.
If you’re planning a wedding and looking for crafty ideas, whether it’s to save money or because you love to be creative, making your own invitations is a popular choice. And if you don’t know where to start, the projects in our free eBook are sure to inspire you. Choosing to create your own handmade wedding invitations is by no means an easy option –you’ll need to design the invitation, gather the materials and then execute the time-intensive task of actually making dozens of cards but the result will be truly unique invitations which nobody else will have.
Choosing a Vintage Wedding Dress
If you are looking for the perfect wedding dress why not go down the vintage route? Vintage clothing has never been more desirable and there are tons of vintage styles to suit every figure whether it’s a simple 1930s silk column or a full skirted fifties number with a sweetheart neckline – there’s a style to suit everyone. The Complete Vintage Wedding Guide by Lucy Morris is the perfect starting point if you’re trying to track down the perfect vintage style wedding dress for your big day. You can also view our guide to some of the best vintage wedding dress websites to help you in your search.
Your dream wedding day needn’t cost the earth if you are prepared to roll up your sleeves and do a little DIY! Rather than huge, expensive floral arrangements to decorate the tables, why not try one of the original and eye catching ideas for table displays that we’ve selected here. Choose from paper pinwheels, wild flowers and even fruit and vegetables for unique and eye-catching table centrepieces.
Last but not least in our top five DIY wedding crafts are these beautiful crochet barefoot sandals. If you are planning a garden or beach wedding they are the perfect foot decoration.
