Make Your Own Flower Wreaths

These simple flowers wreaths are so easy to make. You just need flowers (choose some that are easy to work) and some fastening wire. Be sure to close the wire off securely so your flower girls don’t get prickled!

Your wedding guests will be so impressed when you tell them you made them yourself! And they’ll be featured in the photographs to be remembered for all time!


DIY Wedding Favours

In honour of spring (which must be on its way soon!) how about giving your guests potted bulbs as wedding favours? They are very easy and affordable to make and will give your guests a bright and pretty reminder of your special day in the months to follow. We love this clever idea of potting bulbs in old tin cans, which gives an added vintage twist.

Make Your Own Invitations

The cost of wedding stationary can soon add up – so, how about making your own? If you’re the crafty type you could design your own, or, if not you could purchase a DIY invitation kit and simply construct them yourself. Either way it’s just as fun and your friends and family will be delighted to receive a handmade card in the post!

DIY Decorations

When it comes to decorations they key is to choose something classic or something original. This way your celebration will become one to be remembered for all the right reasons. We’re certainly fans of homemade bunting, which can be created from old fabrics collected from junk shops. We also adore these handmade garlands…

Jam Jar Tealight Holders

Sometimes the simplest ideas can be the most effective. So, why not collect empty jam jars in the run up to your wedding and use them as tealight holders for a magical effect come evening. There’s nothing more romantic than candle light; imagine finishing off your wedding feast to this…
