When you’re planning a DIY wedding, a number of things you can make immediately come to mind. Invites, favors, and even hair and makeup are easy to do yourself. However, there are some things you might never think of doing yourself. You might think it’s too hard, too expensive, or just not possible. Even if you think you can’t DIY them, or it never occurs to you to even try, you could still pull some surprising DIY tricks out of your top hat. You can take a DIY approach to just about any part of your wedding, including the following things.
Do you think you could never have a hope of making your own wedding outfit? Many people have done it over the years, but if you don’t already sew (or perhaps crochet) the idea of doing it yourself might seem ridiculous. But even if you don’t have any experience making clothes, it’s not necessarily such a silly notion. Depending on how far away your wedding is, there’s still plenty of time to learn. The best way to learn the sewing basics is to sign up for a class. Once you have grown in confidence, you can assess whether you think you’re ready to take on a big project.
Unless you’re a jeweler, making your own wedding rings probably doesn’t seem realistic. But there are ways you can take a DIY approach without any jewelry making skills. The first thing you can do is to use a custom engagement ring or wedding ring designer. You won’t be actually making the ring yourself, but you will get to choose exactly what it looks like. However, if you want to go a step further, you can take a workshop where someone will help you to make your rings. They will guide you through the process and lend a hand so that you get two unique rings made by you.
Perhaps you don’t want to have to think too hard about getting to where you need to be on your wedding day. Many people choose to book cars, or perhaps a horse and carriage if they’re feeling fancy. However, if you’re on a budget, there’s no reason you couldn’t use your own transport. It might not be the most stylish car available, but you’re only going to be seen in it for a short while. Most of the guests probably won’t even see you get out of the car! Some ribbons or other decorations can make your everyday car more attractive.
Doing your wedding food yourself isn’t too unusual. But what if you did the drinks too? Mixing up your own cocktails isn’t the only way to DIY drinks for your wedding. You could actually brew or maybe juice some yourself. There are all kinds of drinks you can make, from wine and beer to fruit juices or carbonated drinks. Why not create a special drink for your wedding day?
You can DIY just about anything for your wedding day. It’s always worth trying, even if not everything turns out the way you want it to.
