Worried About the Price Tag Of Your Wedding? Here Are Some DIY Options to Save Money On Your Perfect Day!

When you begin planning your wedding, many people find themselves immediately overwhelmed by how quickly every little detail necessary to pull together your perfect day can add up! Weddings are a fun, exciting start to the rest of your life with the one you love, but they are also notoriously expensive. Just say the magic word (“wedding”) and oftentimes prices automatically go up! Luckily, if you’re stressing about the price tag of your special day we’ve been able to round up some great, simple DIY options that will help you save hundreds, if not thousands!

  1. If you join any wedding Facebook group, one thing that you will see mentioned over and over again is a Cricut! A Cricut is an amazing money saving tool when planning your wedding, and is definitely something to look into if you want to DIY your decorations, signs and even invitations while keeping them clean, elegant and professional looking. A Cricut is basically a machine that allows you to design and cut your own vinyl stickers — great for things like lettering on invitations, signs, table markers, etc.
  2. Another easy thing to DIY is table centerpieces! Skip the fresh flower arrangements that can quickly add up in lieu of candles, faux flowers, or even mason jars filled with fresh cut flowers from your garden. The possibilities are endless!
  3. Instead of spending money on wedding favors that your guests will likely leave behind or throw away, find a way to DIY your wedding favors and make them not only more useful, but more personal to you as a couple. Do you have some favorite recipes that you cook together? Put together a short recipe book. Make and bag a couple batches of your favorite cookies! Are you having a bonfire at your reception? How about making s’mores kits? Again, this is another area where you can get creative and have fun!
  4. Another great way to save is to DIY some of your decorations! One fun idea we’ve seen is to hang framed photos of you and your future spouse throughout your venue. This is a great way to decorate while including personal touches!
  5. One easy thing to DIY is the ring bearers pillow and the flower girls basket! For the pillow, all you’ll need is your fabric of choice, something to stuff it with, a needle and thread, and maybe some ribbon! For the flower basket, all you’ll need is a basket, some ribbon, and your favorite flower petals, real or faux!
