One thing we at De La Rosa’s Bridal & Tuxedo know about weddings is how insanely pricey they can get! With all of the different factors that go into making a wedding picture-perfect, it can get overwhelming with all the decisions and adjustments to your budget. So why not consider trying a few DIY projects for decor, invitations, signs, and more?
We love the idea of incorporating some craftiness into your big day because it offers a level of authenticity - plus, it’s fun! Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Think twice before you say "ew." to dollar-store faux flowers. Any flower can be transformed into a real flower with water. Fill a plastic terrarium bowl 3/4 full of water and place three blooms in it. To make this stunning centerpiece, you will only need a few bucks!
Wooden runner made from reclaimed wood
The rustic, reclaimed wood runner will add height and texture to long dining tables. There is an aged wood piece running along the length of the table, giving the understated arrangements and dainty votive candle holders a boost to make them seem grander and more elegant. A reclaimed runner adds dimension to each tablescape, in contrast to the velvety white blooms.
Wedding centerpieces with succulents
If you're looking for do-it-yourself wedding ideas, consider these cute garden-inspired centerpieces. Plant succulents in recycled planters for a breath of fresh air for your guests.
Hanging floral decor
For hanging décor, you may also want to consider pretty tassel garlands. Strings and flowers can be used to create a beautiful backdrop.
Signage for the wedding
With an arrow on wood or heavyweight cardstock, you can write classics such as "Welcome" or "Wedding This Way" on your guest list. You can create wedding signage yourself if you have great handwriting.
The wedding day schedule
Pallets made of wood can be used in a variety of ways. When standing upright, it is possible to hold the wedding day schedule upright. Without using paper, this is a great way to keep your guests informed!
