Now that we’ve discussed what NOT to DIY for your wedding, it’s time to share the fun part – our favorite wedding DIY projects! The key to DIYing your big day is to keep it simple, and within your skill level. Check out these projects and start planning how you can personalize and transform your wedding day!
Favors are probably our favorite DIY-DO. They are easy to do months ahead of time, and your guests will probably enjoy them a lot more if they came from the heart! We love these seed bomb, and honey jar favors previously featured on Apple Brides!
While we recommend leaving the florals up to the pros, you can easily DIY the other elements of your centerpieces! We recommend scouring your local yard sales, vintage markets, and thrift stores for interesting elements to add such as candles, vases, lanterns, and even books! (Pinterest may come in handy here with providing tons of inspiration!) You can find tutorials for these gorgeous music sheet candles and this fun chevron table runner right here on Apple Brides!
“Guest Books” these days go way beyond the typical book. We love when couples get creative by featuring something they will always want to display in their home; whether that’s a globe, a giant framed photo, or a watercolor family tree.
Bridal Party Gifts
You don’t have to spend a ton of money to show your bridesmaids how much you love and appreciate them! In fact, DIY gifts can often be much more personal and meaningful. There are so many cute “ask boxes” ideas you see all over Instagram, why not fill them with some tasteful DIY items? We are obsessed with these tea cup candles, homemade vanilla sugar, and these customizable lip balms.
This is another DIY that gets an assist from Pinterest. There are SO MANY cute and clever seating card ideas out there like these wood slice stands from La Lune Events! From wine corks to polaroid photos, you can handwrite them or get them professionally printed. And again, it can be done months in advance – major bonus.
