Try our easy, budget-friendly DIY wedding ideas to help create the wedding of your dreams. From DIY wedding favours to your bouquet, get creative with our tried-and-tested tutorials.
Every couple wants a wedding day that’s personal to them and shows off their style and theme. The easiest – and cheapest - way to get lots of personal touches into your big day is to try some wedding DIY.
We don’t just mean DIY wedding decorations: you can try your hand at making your own bouquets and buttonholes, cake, invites, bridesmaid dresses (if you’re very handy with a sewing machine!), even your evening entertainment can be a playlist you create.
Some couples are happy to throw an entirely DIY wedding where everything is handmade and totally unique. While it’s a wonderful idea, it’s a bit too time-consuming for some. In which case, you only have to DIY as much or as little as you want!
That’s the beauty of doing it yourself: there are lots of little cheats and things you can easily jazz up if you’re not as crafty – but if you feel happiest with a glue gun in your hand, it might be your favourite part of wedding planning.
We’ve got so many DIY wedding ideas for you to try out. There’s homemade wedding favours, from summery lemon curd pots to fruit-infused alcoholic shots and a rich hot chocolate mix for winter. How about our cute bunting tutorial or our pick of 50 DIY centrepiece ideas?
For invites, we’ve got a step-by-step tutorial on how to make marble DIY wedding invitations, but we’ve also got 10 cute ways you can personalise your bought invites. Want to save money on your wedding hair and make-up? We’ve got that covered too.
Naturally, saving money on your wedding is a huge consideration. These DIY ideas will make your budget go further and lots of them can be done very quickly with things you have at home. You won’t believe how easy it is to make your own confetti cones, for example!
