Weddings can be an expensive affair. Fortunately, there are a lot of things that you can make yourself to cut costs and add a personal touch to your special day. By saving money by making your own decorations, you can leave funds for the things that really matter such as wedding day photography and catering. Here are three DIY wedding day decor ideas to help you get started on customizing your wedding day:
Hydrangeas are synonymous with elegant weddings. Rustic Wedding Chic teaches how to craft floating hydrangea globes that are easy to make and will add an element of class to your day. These blooms can be customized by using special color schemes that have special meaning to the couple. Hydrangea globes look amazing hung from tree branches at outdoor weddings or put on tables in the reception venue. These stunning floral displays will be an amazing backdrop for your ceremony or reception. A high-quality wedding photographer will perfectly capture the creativity that went into this planning and work.
Scented Candles with Custom Scents
Harness the power of smell by making your scented candles with personal custom scents. Candles are easy to make when equipped with the right tools and ingredients. You can then add essential oils to create unique scents in an effort to personalize your affair. doTERRA says to keep in mind that essential oils are incredibly potent, so only a few drops will be needed for a candle recipe. Be sure to choose oils that will complement your existing decor. For example, if you plan on making floating flower globes, a nice lavender essential oil will highlight the decorations.
Distressed Mason Jars
The rustic farmhouse style trend is all the rage these days. Carry this trend over to your wedding with adorable distressed mason jars. Visual Hunt explains that mason jars are a staple of country homes and those who value food storage and emergency food preparation. The whole country decor style is rooted in vintage Americana. The first step to do this on your own is to paint mason jars with a shade that complements your color scheme. Chalk paint works especially well because of its durability. After the coats of paint have dried, use a piece of sandpaper to rub the jars so that they have a distressed look. Once the jars have finished, you can fill them with tea lights or your favorite flowers.
With a little creativity and elbow grease, you can customize your wedding in a way that highlights the personality of you and your fiancé. Your guests will surely remember the time and love that went into creating your customized decorations.
