Are you a Pinterest lover like we are?? Honestly, who does not love the creative and unique ideas you run across on Pinterest that you feel you MUST have at your wedding? Or you may be on a somewhat tight budget, or maybe you just want to be able to keep something from your wedding as a reminder of the day you married your true love. Well guess what! You can do it all yourself and make it look fabulous!! We have noticed a new trend lately in that couples tend to use ideas they may have gathered on wedding websites or saw at a previous wedding and use it for their own. For instance, we recently planned a wedding for a couple that got married at The Cotton Dock at Boone Hall Plantation, located in historic Charleston who had an assortment of DIY ideas for their wedding that turned out beautifully!
The couple had a photo booth set up at the reception with different color hearts hanging from the wall to use as a backdrop. They provided an assortment of props for the guests to have fun with, which provided very good entertainment!
You may often see a lot of recent weddings that use the window pane to write the drink menu, a black chalkboard to write the dinner menu, “Happily Ever After” signs made out of wood and paint, and providing their own décor to decorate throughout the venue, for example, initials have seemed to be a very trendy and popular thing that couples are doing today.
These are just a few ideas for those of you looking to have some DIY at your wedding. The list goes on and on! You may consider creating your own save the dates or invitations, guest favors, signs, there are so many things to choose from!
Wedding planners love to see how involved the couple gets in their wedding and how creative they can be! But it is important to remember to not get too carried away and lose focus on what is really important! We want this experience to be as fun as possible for the couple!!
Happy Beginnings! Mike
