DIY wedding decor is something everyone longs for. Besides having it cheaper, it also offers you something personal and memorable. You can tell your kids later that you and your friends create the wedding decor together and it is so much fun. You can create a budget arrangement and save the rest for living a real life after marriage.
As a bride-to-be, I believe that there must be so many things to think. And this post is aimed at loosening your weight. I give some super easy to make and cheap wedding decorations that you can start creating some months before the H-Day. Ask your close family and friends to help you decorate these things together. For example, every weekend you gather your beloved ones to help you arrange the decoration. Set a target to create at least 10 items per weekend. See how you get the progress over the month. The target shouldn’t set too high. You need to have fun though. You don’t need to be under pressure while doing this craft project. Just do it with a lighter heart and happiness.
Create the Real-Life Budget DIY Wedding Décor
So, here are some ideas to look at.
1. Color Cork Lids for Card Holders
The simple cork lids can be fascinating and breathtaking for your wedding decoration, such as the cardholders. You can purchase them at the craft stores. Here are how you can do it:
- Use a knife to make an incision on the top of cork lid.
- Dip them into some favorite and paint colors.
2. The Leaf Menu
Everything about the greenery is getting well-known in the world, especially for wedding decoration. And you can also take into this trend as well. You can create this beautiful leaf menu using a paint pen. Write down your list of a menu in a calligraphy style. Pick the large leaves instead of the smaller ones.
3. Gold-Dipped Balloons
Every gold liquid brings everything look glamorous, including your wedding balloons. You can easily transform the ordinary balloons into the glamorous ones. All you need is just dipping your balloons in the liquid gold. While they have been dried, blow them up.
4. Petal Toss Bar
You can put them on a small table. While the newlyweds walk down the aisle, ask the guests to collect a cone full of petals and toss them to the newlyweds. It must bring splashing colors on your wedding ceremony. It is kind of a memorable time ever.
5. Nature-Inspired Napkins
You don’t have to rent the luxurious napkins for your wedding day. Instead, you need to buy the white ones to be decorated later. On those white napkins, you can start adding the natural accents with the pinecones, embroidery thread, twigs and herbs. You also can add the initial on the linen to make it personalized.
6. Celebratory Drink Flags
You can make them from the metallic tissue paper and make them around the patterned straws.
7. Wire-Wrapped Signs
This is the most inexpensive wedding decoration for me. All you need is just by grabbing the copper wine and bending them.
