Favourite Wedding DIY posts_0012

We’re bringing you something slightly different on the blog today, and sharing some of our favourite DIY tutorials from across the wedding blog network!

DIY weddings have become more and more popular over the past couple of years, with Bride’s and Groom’s working on tighter budgets. As I budget Bride myself, we have taken on a tonne of projects (maybe too many!). It can be quite daunting at first, especially if you’re not particularly crafty, but once you get stuck in it’s actually a lot of fun! When it’s all put together on the big day, I guarantee you’ll be super proud of yourselves too J

So get your creative head’s on and enjoy the process!…

Bar Cart…

Favourite DIY Wedding post

Bar carts can be crazy expensive to buy, and even hire, so this Bepsoke Bride alternative could really work for you if you’re on a tight budget. By simply using a £6.99 vegetable trolley, some spray paint in your chosen colours, and your favourite tipple, you can have your very own funky bar cart! They have even included a printable sign to complete the look – thanks girls!

Linens can be hard to source, especially in the UK and if you’re looking for specific colours, so this table runner is genius and oh so simple! All you need is a plain runner, some tape and acrylic paint…take a look at this Green Wedding Shoes post for instructions.

As a huge fan of paper folding, I just had to include this awesome origami heart tutorial from Want That Wedding! Make them in colours to match your colour scheme, and hang them from a pretty ribbon, attach to string to make a garland or use them as place cards (which also double up as ace favours!)
