Wedding décor can be costly, especially if you’re on a tight budget. Consider these DIY wedding projects that add a personal touch without breaking the bank.
DIY weddings are becoming increasingly popular and for a good reason. Crafting your own décor pieces allows you to personalize your wedding and save money doing it. Get creative by finding everyday items to customize to your wedding’s theme and aesthetic. We’ve gathered these five budget-friendly DIY projects for weddings to help you gather inspiration.
Wine Bottle Centerpieces
If you have any empty wine bottles lying around, grab a few to use as rustic centerpieces. These are especially fitting if you’re tying the knot at a winery. If you replace the wine bottle label with a printed number label, wine bottles could even make lovely table number arrangements.
Get creative by adding fairy lights or roses in the bottle or painting the glass a different color. There are many different ways to use empty wine bottles aside from centerpieces. Tap into your creativity and find out how you can best incorporate this item into your wedding.
Mason Jar Lights
Mason jars with twinkling fairy lights add a charming element to the space. These can function as centerpieces or décor for entry tables where your guests will sign the guest book or pick up a program. You can fill the mason jar with any other aesthetic items, like roses, floating candles, succulents, or seashells and sand.
Aisle Décor Arrangements
Another budget-friendly DIY project for weddings includes aisle arrangements. You can create simple floral arrangements using twine and silk flowers to decorate the aisle. This inexpensive project is perfect if you have a garden theme or love greenery. These arrangements will add a pop of color to the ceremony and a warm botanical feel.
Exit Toss Pockets
You can create an exit toss by making small paper pockets and stuffing them with silk petals, confetti, or rice if your venue allows it. Making the paper pockets is a matter of folding and finessing, and there are plenty of tutorials available online to help you create your DIY exit toss pockets for your guests.
This simple DIY project requires Canva and a small card signage holder or frame. Open Canva, choose a background, select a font, and print out your table signage. You can create table numbers, bar signage, menus, and more. You can even choose a different material for printing to elevate the look and feel of the design.
