We have put together a list of some DIY wedding ideas that add that personal touch to your big day and help you with some crucial parts of the planning process. 

1. DIY Wedding Invitations

DIY Wedding Invites

Your wedding invitations play a huge part in the planning process, the guests will have their first sneak peak of the style/themes of the wedding. If you are stuck for a particular theme or you just want to keep it fairly neutral, opt for a light brown coloured card with traditional ivory or white lace features. It's so simple, yet so detailed and elegant. It is also an inexpensive idea that is not too time-consuming and is a great way of adding your own flare.


2. DIY Wedding Centrepieces

DIY Centrepieces

DIY centrepieces can range from fairy light filled jam jars, to flower arrangements in watering cans. This is another great way to add a personal touch to your wedding venue and impress your guests with your creativity. Choosing artificial flowers for your centrepieces means that you can start in advance and not worry about an expiration date which also means you get to use the flowers again. If you want to steer away from flowers, try wrapping different fabrics around lit jam jars that match the colour scheme. You'll be suprised at how well they brighten up the reception venue.


3. DIY Wedding Favours

DIY Wedding Favours

Wedding favours are a way to really show your appreciation and gratitude to your guests, which is why a DIY wedding favour illustrates just that and, again, adds that personal touch. What seems to be trending at the moment is this "s'more" love set that this bride has opted for. Each neatly packed favour contains chocolate squares, fluffy marshmallows and delicious wafer biscuits - the perfect tasty treat for your friends and family. What's not to like?


4. DIY Wedding Cake

Why not add to your cake display like this bride has. This wedding cake idea is perfect if you're thinking of having a large wedding reception with many guests. It's much easier on a busy wedding day to give cupcakes to your guests, and they surprisingly travel well.

5. DIY Decorations

DIY Decorations

If you are incorporating a shabby chic look in your reception venue, why not try this unconventional decorating idea.  The rustic ladder, flowers and large letters combination really is a unique way to add your personal touch to the entrance of your wedding venue. Many wedding venues have restrictions on decorations (e.g. no hanging pictures or blue tack on the walls) and even though this decoration may not be travel-friendly, there will be no restrictions when placing it in your wedding venue.
