DIY projects to put the personal into your wedding decor 

We all appreciate how expensive weddings can be and every little helps, right?! DIY weddings really are the way forward and have so many benefits beyond saving the pennies.

Let’s not forget that wedding planning can be rather stressful so getting creative is also a great opportunity to provide a moment of escapism and offers another excuse for a shindig as you can get your nearest and dearest involved too. 

The beautiful decor you create by adding personal touches that you’re really proud of will wow your guests, truly mean something to you and of course will give you some breathing room on the budget too.

These DIY projects to put the personal into your wedding decor are super easy, super quick and super impressive…

When it comes to the wow factor it’s always worth considering a backdrop for your ceremony, wedding breakfast top table or cake table as this can really make the other details pop and create ‘zones’ for areas where you want the focus. The wedding photographer will be happy for making their job easier and you can create really fun photo booths too!

Photography backdrop stands aren’t expensive and are often extendable so will be pretty much guaranteed to fit any space and are perfect for hanging fabric or flowers. You may not envisage the black metal as part of your wedding so how about painting the frame to match your colours using spray paints? Craig & Rose have wonderful colours including Rose Gold, Metallic Gold, Copper Rose (as shown) or Hog Bristle.

Oh So Kel stylist DIY projects to put the personal into your wedding decor

Lanterns are a fabulous decor option for many settings as they can be used to create whimsical candlelight or house floral arrangements, lining either side of the aisle for a romantic touch, along garden paths to guide guests, or as beautiful centrepieces on the tables. Imagining how many you might need can be a daunting thought when considering the budget but you could consider buying cheaper versions like this one from Ikea then spray painting them for a more luxe look, like this matte silver lantern sprayed in Rose Gold then Marble Effect Artisan Spray Paint.

Other ideas include using burlap and our metallic paint to create monogrammed table runners, spraying jam jars and wine bottles for a beautiful collection of rustic flowers or spraying branches with metallic paints and displaying them in doorways or either side of the aisle for a whimsical touch. They also make great table plan alternatives too as you can hang each table list from the branches like we did at our own Winter Wedding.
