The do-it-yourself trend has been huge since the popularity of Pinterest grew. DIY helps make your wedding more unique and personalized than traditional wedding decor and accents. There are hundreds, maybe even thousands, of ideas on Pinterest and other wedding websites, allowing a bride to DIY her entire wedding if she wishes. Here are a few of the best DIY ideas you can find on Pinterest.
Centerpieces are the most popular thing for a bride to DIY. Practically anything can be turned into a centerpiece with enough creativity and ingenuity. Finding bits and ends of different items can create a beautiful and unique centerpiece that fits perfectly with the rest of the decor in the wedding.
The second most popular thing for brides to is their own floral arrangements. This can range from the boutonneires to the centerpieces to the bridesmaid bouquets to the actual bridal bouquet. There are many tutorials on Pinterest that explain the basics of flower arrangement in order for brides to make their own centerpieces or bridal party bouquets.
What is more popular are the how-to’s on boutonniere crafting. Brides usually don’t feel comfortable taking on floral arrangement if they have no experience, but boutonnieres can’t be too difficult, right? When brides follow Pinterest guides, they will be able to make their own boutonnieres for the groom, groomsmen, and fathers without problems. What is great about homemade boutonnieres is you can make them out of anything. Real flowers, silk flowers, fabric, or even paper!
Brides who have someone in the family making their cake can choose to make a beautifully decorated cake stand to display the flour-and-sugar masterpiece. The best part about DIY-ing a cake stand is that it will absolutely match the rest of the decor at the wedding. DIY tiered cake stands are perfect for the bride serving cupcakes instead of cake at her wedding.
If you are having an outdoor wedding, mason jar cocktails are a great way to supply drinks to your guests. A few days before the wedding, you can moonshine a ton of adult beverage varieties with your entire bridal party and groom (along with plenty of taste testing!). Separate them into scotch glass-sized mason jars with labels on what is in the jar. These drinks can also double as cute wedding favors for the guests who collect the mason jars to take home.
Along with Pinterest, the photobooth at weddings has greatly risen in popularity. It is the perfect way for guests to take a break from dancing and have fun with other guests and family. Rented photobooths can be expensive and some couples endeavor to make their own photobooth for guests to enjoy. The best part about a photobooth is the photos can double as a wedding favor!
When it is time to give gifts to your bridal party, parents, and other wedding VIPs, creating your own cute gift baskets is the way to go. These personalized gift baskets are a great way to tell your friends and family thank you for all the work they have done helping make your special day perfect. Now its time to DIY YOUR wedding!
