When it comes to weddings, it really is all in the DIYtails! We’ve seen our fair share of homemade invitations, handprinted save the dates, and centerpieces arranged by the couple themselves. Pinterest, we love you. We also love the idea of adding personalized touches of unique DIY wedding details to your big day! Check out 10 of our all-time favorite DIY “I Do” ideas from our real weddings below.
1. Updo It Yourself
Add a rustic, personal touch to your wedding day hairstyle with a homemade flower crown. There’s nothing more trendy in boho fashion than a tiara of tuberoses, and crafting one is easier than you might think!
2. Chalk It Up To Love
Spell out your couple love story with fancy chalk and a stylish chalkboard. We love how authentic handwriting can play a part in your wedding theme like the one below or during the main event like this one!
3. Speaking of Signs
We definitely want s’more of these sweet sentiments! Remember, to tell you guests where all the delicious treats and fun activities are with cute, personality-filled signs.
4. Floral Favor Favorites
‘Let love grow’ with darling DIY wedding details and favors, such as seeds from your favorite flowers! The setup and cost will be a breeze, but guests will adore the sentiment. P.S. Note the lavender-sprinkled burlap tablecloth paired with a delicate lace table runner to complete this Colorado wedding’s rustic outdoor theme.
5. Pretty Painted Pieces
Handpainted table cards or mason jars can be perfectly subtle touches for some DIY wedding details. Utilize stencils, glitter, and different application methods for personalized perfection! These sweet table toppers will charm your guests!
6. Faux Florals
Flowers that aren’t actually flowers make a lasting keepsake and, not to mention, a beautiful backdrop for those close-up ring shots. Plus, they won’t wilt throughout the day! Get in on the trend with a design you can do yourself like these crocheted petals or get to cutting to create the perfect paper bouquet.
7. Eat, Drink & Be Married
Sparkles, ribbons, and sweet slogans can take a classic DIY project to the next level. Collect loving sentiments and well-wishes from guests with a craftable wedding card box like this cake-like one or this hot air balloon themed one.
