DIY Ideas For Your Wedding Day

Do-it-Yourself, or DIY wedding projects can be a great and cost-effective way to personalize your wedding. Use your talents and exercise some creativity. The possibilities are endless with DIY!

Every great DIY wedding starts with a list – or many lists. Make your first purchase a great wedding organizer full of helpful tips and essentials that will keep you on track. The notebook will help keep your receipts, contracts and clippings all in one convenient, organized place.

Once you have chosen your color scheme and/or theme, you can select the essentials that will make your day as pretty as it is meaningful. Personalize your ceremony with printable wedding programs, monogrammed aisle runners or perhaps a “Here Comes the Bride” banner for your adorable child attendants to carry. Choose a basic flower girl basket and embellish with her initials or an accent ribbon to complement the wedding colors. Coordinate your ring bearer pillow using the same ribbon.

Décor elements for your reception are great DIY projects. There are hundreds of wedding favor variations in which to choose. You can adorn favor boxes with pieces of ribbon, scrap lace and gems. Planning a candy buffet as a treat for your guests? Use your own computer to produce coordinating labels for the jars, seals for the bags or boxes and helpful signage to direct your guests. You can accent votive candles to match your look even custom print your own table numbers, table names and place cards. Even your menus can be DIY treasures that your guests will want to keep long after they wish you newlyweds well!

You might consider looking into printable invitations if you really want to incorporate a personal touch throughout the wedding. Everything from save-the-date cards to map and direction cards are available and easy to print. After the wedding, you might send DIY thank you cards to your guests who will appreciate the touches of “you” that you send.

Advantage Bridal has a huge selection of DIY projects, including programs, DIY wedding favors and escort cards to make your wedding day look perfect!
