Tips For Creating a Do it Yourself Wedding


Brides are always looking for ways to cut the cost of their big day. Weddings are expensive and the more unique and personalized you want to make the event, the most it is going to cost. Instead of shopping for all of the items you need ready-made, consider creating some of the decorations, paper products and clothing on your own. This ensures they are one of a kind and truly adds a personal touch store-bought items could never provide. It may take you a bit longer and it will require a few trips to the craft store, but the cost of art supplies and foam board, coupled with the extra time, will be well worth the effort when you save money and create a fun, personalized event unlike any other wedding you have ever attended.

As soon as you get engaged, you can begin creating do it yourself items that will make your wedding experience unique. Using a scrapbook for your wedding planning allows you to have a souvenir at the end of the event that is one of a kind and filled with all of your brainstorming, ideas and photos. Instead of purchasing a ready-made wedding planner which may not be right for your needs, consider buying a scrapbook with pockets for contracts and receipts, blank pages for notes and sketches, and plastic covers to protect important photos. The important thing is creating a planner you are comfortable using and that provides you with what you need.

Many of the items that are associated with the wedding ceremony and reception can be handmade. This allows you to add your own creative flair, so the items match the feeling and style you are going for with your wedding. Paper supplies are a great way to show your personal style and create a unique feeling for your wedding. Before beginning, choose a style for your wedding and consider a logo, word or photo you would like to use throughout the wedding experience. Include this image on your engagement announcements, shower invitations, wedding invitations and thank you notes.

Choosing a color scheme is another important aspect of planning, especially if you are making your own wedding items. Your color scheme should be reflected in your paper goods, linens, centerpieces, cake and flowers, all of which can be created by you. Let your bridal party dresses or personal favorite colors guide your color choices.

Your final consideration when creating a do it yourself wedding is to make sure you will be able to enjoy your big day. Many brides go overboard and end up focused on crafts the day of the wedding. It is important to plan ahead and stay organized during the planning stages. If you are beginning to feel overwhelmed, do not be afraid to consider store-bought items to ease the chaos. To ensure you are able to focus on your new spouse and your loved ones on the day of the wedding, keep your crafting under control and be willing to delegate projects when need be.
