DIY Wedding Inspirations

If you’re planning on being a spring or summer bride than check out these gorgeous DIY wedding inspirations. Whoever said wedding décor had to cost a fortune is unaware of the amazing DIY projects that are out there. Just because you strive for elegance and perfection, doesn't mean you have to spend an exorbitant amount.

Love and engagements are abound! With the warm weather here, and much more to come, it is a wonderful time to get crafty and prepare for your special day. Everyone wants their wedding to be elegant, but that doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. Most of the fancy decorations you pay hundreds of dollars for can actually be created in your own home! Whoever says wedding decor has to cost you a fortune is clearly unaware of these amazing DIY projects. Check out some of our favorite DIY inspirations for a spring or summer wedding. Your guests will never believe that these decorations were created by the bride herself!

  • Pennant Banner Seating Chart

    Seating charts are a wedding must, but that doesn’t mean they have to be those boring old place cards. Spice it up with a unique idea like these pennant banner seating charts! Guests can hunt for their own personalized flags and then head over to their seats for the party to begin.

  • Table Number Templates

    You don’t have to spend a fortune on good looking table numbers. Create these DIY numbers to place on the tables at your wedding. The best part is that you can find these templates online! All you need to do is pick your favorite.

  • Confetti Programs

    I love this creative idea! Place some paper confetti inside bags with the wedding programs and tell the guests to toss the confetti at the bride and groom when they leave! The confetti can be created with cut up pieces of sparkly paper.

  • Paper Garlands

    Hanging paper garlands from the top of your venue adds such a chic and romantic look to your wedding. They look elegant, but are SO simple to make yourself! Stick with your color scheme and create hearts, balls or flowers all out of paper.

  • “Just Married” Banner

    Taking pictures with a “just married” banner has become a big event at weddings! These pictures can be a cute idea to put on a thank you card. Depending on your theme you can find a “just married” banner that is right for you. It’s a Bride’s Life chose to feature this great rustic looking banner and position their newlyweds in front of a barn to keep with that same rustic theme.

  • Sweet Favors

    Edible favors are always popular at weddings and people usually dig right into them as soon as the event ends. Most people have plenty of knickknacks so opt for candies or other special treats to give away at the end of the night. These salt-water taffy jars are perfect to give and look so pretty with their gold tops and white ribbons.

  • Wedding Wands

    While I have never seen these before, apparently they are becoming very popular. Waving these wedding wands around when the newlyweds leave the ceremony makes for magical pictures. They are also much easier than giving everyone handfuls of rose petals!
