Having an affordable wedding doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t have artistic and fun features, including a wonderfully made custom wedding dress that comes well within your budget. Creativity doesn’t have to cost a lot, and if you need to follow a stringent budget but still want a classy and novel wedding, these DIY ideas could be just what you’re looking for. The tips below will spruce up your important day and dazzle your guests almost as much as your beautiful smile.
Mason jars are affordable, and they can be fused in so many ways into the décor of your venue. They can be used as vases for table centrepieces, as illustrations or for light fixtures, or even as boxes. It doesn’t take a lot of energy to create an awesome Mason jar giveaway – one quirky idea is to fill them with a cake or cookie mix. Mason jars spontaneously make any DIY project chic, and the money you’ll save on your homemade boxes/gifts and decoration means you can spend a little more on other pressing things.
One of a Kind Guestbook
If you want to reminisce all the aspects of your big day, why not create a guestbook for guests to drop you a message? A traditional guestbook might be a little passé, especially if you have been aiming for a different and quirky theme – so an option would be to have a big bottle in place of a guestbook and your guests can sign their name on corks, tiny pieces of paper, or mini spirals. Later, the bottle makes a fabulous decoration for you to take home and a beautiful memento of the most fabulous day of your life spent with loved ones. Another idea for those with a travel-themed wedding is having the guests sign a message on adorable stationery. They can fold the content into paper planes and put them inside a mini suitcase.
Place Card Holder
Making your guests feel exceptional on your big day is a delightful gesture of appreciation for their presence at your wedding. Sometimes, something as small as a cute personalized place cardholder can make them feel appreciated. A couple of mild ideas include using tiny pinecones with handwritten cards or picture frames with their photos rather than names inside. You can also check out the usage and designs of plastic sign holders – they could suit your purpose well!
These DIY ideas are simple to create, but they can make all the difference to your guests’ involvement at your wedding.
