DIY wedding tips to make your wedding unique
The global DIY trend did not miss the world of weddings so, today Zk Magazine bring you simple ideas on how you can create your own centrepieces for your room. Not only does opting for the DIY alternative save you some money (who doesn’t like savings in a recession?) it also gives your wedding day a personal touch.
It is natural that the décor of the wedding venue is a concern for the couple. Small details and touches will portray you as a couple therefore, it is vital that you put your stamp on the location. DIY is the perfect way to achieve this!
For couples who are looking to create a special day on a smaller budget, creating your own centrepieces is the best solution. This season, a tea party style wedding is incredibly popular. Think charming, quirky, unique and vintage style flower arrangements, beads and textiles. Mirrors, tiles, mosaics and glass can also be very effective.
A simple, cash effective way to begin is to save all your glass bottles and jars regardless of shape or size. For ecologically minded couples this is a great way to recycle your day to day objects and create something beautiful. Filled with wild flowers and greenery, glass jars and bottles are perfect for creating a festival style wedding with an ethereal feel.
If you hold an outdoor wedding in the evening or late afternoon you can combine the flower centerpieces with candles too. The photo above from Style Me Pretty is a great illustration of how to create a soft and romantic ambience, perfect for an intimate wedding.
Just remember, this trend is based around the small details that are personal to you. Choose your favourite flowers, your favourite smelling candles, fill the jars with the sweets from your childhood or vintage cans and jars that make you smile.
This trend has a sense of humour, a quirkiness that money just can’t buy. Enjoy creating something beautiful that you and your loved one will treasure and cherish.
