If you’re an avid Pinterest user or self-proclaimed DIY-er, then this post may just be for you. Now, it goes without saying that there are some things in your wedding that you can DIY and some things that you should never ever DIY. In case you’re having trouble remembering which is which, we have a post for that too! But, lucky for you, decorations ARE one thing that you can DIY, if you feel up for the challenge. And if that’s the case then do we have some DIY wedding decorations for you!
If you do choose to DIY some or all of your wedding decorations, it might be best to keep a few things in mind. For starters, think about the venue. A DIY wedding is probably better suited for a smaller, more intimate ceremony and reception (think small backyard wedding) rather than a grand ballroom wedding with 200+ guests. Do you really want to spend your wedding planning time making paper garlands to decorate an entire ballroom? My guess is no.
Think about seasons. Continuing with the paper garland idea, paper garlands are probably better suited for spring and summer weddings rather than winter weddings. Especially if you have an outdoor wedding. The last thing you’d want is for the rain to wash away all your hard work.
Remember to plan ahead and take your time. Don’t expect to be able to create all of your decorations in one night. Don’t leave them until the week before the wedding! Test and evaluate your project before you commit to the final product.
