Our DIY Table Numbers were the perfect kind of wedding project – simple & easy to make, yet personal and unique. I loved the idea of giving our guests a few random tidbits of information about the hubs & I as a couple, especially considering some of our guests were meeting one of us for the first time!
Whether it’s due to the recession or a side effect of sites like Pinterest, weddings have become more personalised and unique than they have been in years. Wedding planners be wary – brides and grooms everywhere are taking their wedding plans into their own hands and creating a day that truly reflects their relationship and their love.
If you’re looking for ways to personalise your wedding, or simply one aspect of it, here are some easy ways to do just that.
I know, I know, you already know that, and being reminded of the horror of it isn’t necessary. So, here’s the deal. Unless you’re lucky enough to have parents who are footing the bill or have been madly setting aside funds since you were a wee little one, you’re probably looking to save money where you can.
One of the places where it’s possible to pinch pennies and stretch dimes is with the flowers. Perhaps not the bouquet—though some people will argue that the bouquet is the easiest thing, but I don’t agree, I’m not THAT crafty—but centerpieces and decorative flowers are easier to manage then you might think, and DIY-ing it can potentially save you a fair chunk of change. It still won’t be cheap, but it’ll help take a bit off of your budget. Remember, you’ll have to put in some elbow grease, which means you’ll have to have some time a day or two before the wedding to actually get a group together to make the arrangements.
