Do- it- yourself weddings have become very popular and are a great way for couples to show some creativity and save on their budget! Whether you are a craft enthusiast or your skills are less than superior, I have found DIY projects for every skill level! From DIY wedding invitations to centerpieces and wedding favors, you can do it all. At Autumn Oaks, we offer an Open Vendor Policy making us the perfect wedding venue for “DIYers”!
DIY Wedding Invitations
If you are planning a big wedding, a big chunk of your budget can go to invitations. Recruit your groom, mom, or bridesmaids and create your own invitations. You will want to send out your invitations 6 to 8 weeks before your wedding date so make sure to start this project early! Don’t forget to include the name and address of your wedding venue! I love the simple, elegant look of the invitations pictured.
DIY Wedding Centerpieces
Centerpieces are a great way to add your personal touch to a wedding venue. My sister in law decided to get creative and make her own centerpieces for her wedding. The bridal party pitched in and we made them at her wedding venue the morning of her wedding. We had a lot of fun putting them together and of course they turned out beautiful!
DIY Wedding Favors
After your loved ones join you at your wedding venue to celebrate your big day, send them home with a fun DIY wedding favor! I attended a wedding last year where Smores were the wedding favors and they were delicious! My sister in law was a bridesmaid so I knew they were DIY favors created by the bride and bridesmaids, but I wouldn’t have known otherwise. They looked professionally done and tasted even better!
These are just a few of the DIY wedding ideas I have seen. I dropped some more ideas for you on our Pinterest page. Check them out! I am the least creative person ever but still found several I think I could manage!
