Four DIY Wedding Hacks To Elevate Your Special Day

Hey, love birds! We know planning your big day can be both exhilarating and a tad overwhelming, but fear not! These DIY wedding hacks will add that extra sprinkle of magic to your special day without breaking the bank.

Personalised Welcome Sign

Welcome your guests to your big day with personalised signage. Get creative with calligraphy or rustic hand lettering to write your names and wedding date on a simple wooden board. Add some floral arrangements or fairy lights for that dreamy touch.

Handwritten Place Cards

Add a personal touch to your table settings by hand-writing your guests’ names on place cards. Get creative with different fonts and colors to match your wedding theme. You can even add a small doodle or a heartfelt message to each card for that extra thoughtful touch.

DIY Centrepieces

Create stunning centrepieces without breaking the bank by using items you already have at home or things you can pick up at charity shops/car boot sales. Mason jars filled with wildflowers, vintage books stacked with candles, or even simple glass vases filled with water and floating candles can make for beautiful and budget-friendly decorations.

Creative Guest Book

Say goodbye to the traditional guest book and opt for something more creative and memorable. Set up a Polaroid camera and a blank scrapbook where guests can snap a photo and write a message next to it. You’ll end up with a personalised keepsake that you can cherish for years to come.

When it comes to planning your wedding, there are always areas which you’ll prioritise and want a professional for, and other bits you are quite happy to do yourself. Getting stuck into small DIY wedding hacks helps to add a personal touch to your day, shows appreciation for your guests and can help you to destress by getting creative.
