DIYing parts of your wedding is a great way of adding a personal stamp on your big day and can help save you money. However, it can be time consuming and tedious, so we suggest enlisting the help of your bridesmaids! Not only will it be fun, but making a day of it with your girls will get the job done quicker and is a great way for your bridesmaids to bond if they don’t know each other very well. So grab the glue gun and the girls and let’s get creative!
First of all it’s worth finding out where your bridesmaids skills lie. Perhaps one of them is great at calligraphy or another is a dab hand at sewing? Once you know what they do best, allocate them jobs and set up your production line! Don’t forget to have fun and try not to get too hung up on the DIY’s being perfect. They will all have little imperfect quirks which will only add to the home made charm!
Favours are one of the most popular things to DIY for the wedding. From personalised gift boxes to pretty favour bags and cute jars filled with treats, there is a never ending list of fun and fabulous ideas for DIY wedding favours. Due to the number of favours you’ll need to make, this is defiantly one for your bridesmaids to help you out with.
Don’t feel like you have to make everything from scratch when you are doing DIYing for your wedding. Be realistic about how much time you have and expect DIY’s to take longer than you think! Customising things that have already been made, is a simpler way to create a unique and personalised item. Our DIY wedding invitations are a great example of this, just by adding ribbons and charms or by mounting them on coloured paper makes them personal to you. Again, like the favours, due to the number you will need this is a DIY you should get help with!
Don’t underestimate how much bunting or the number of pom poms you’ll need if you are decorating your marquee or venue in them, which is why this also makes a great DIY with your bridesmaids.
