5 DIY tips to make your wedding venue unique
Making you wedding venue unique and personal is often one of the most difficult things about planning a wedding. You want to make sure that everything is perfect, and that the décor perfectly reflects you and your partner as you take the next step in your relationship. Sometimes DIY tips can be the best way to achieve this – they are cost effective and you are guaranteed to end up with a one-of-a-kind item that can make your wedding venue stand out from the rest.
1. Rustic crate centrepiece
Where centrepieces are concerned, merely choosing your favourite flower can often leave the focus of the table looking underwhelming. To make your centrepieces pop, you can use this DIY tip to create your very own crates to display your flowers. You will need to purchase a small crate from a garden centre or craft store and paint it your chosen colour. Next, you can either fill it with soil and plant your flower of choice, or you can use a styrofoam block cut to size in which to place artificial roses or lilies.
2. Flower crowns/centrepieces
For a bohemian wedding, flower crowns are crucial to finish off your ethereal look, or to add to a centrepiece – however, getting them to accurately match yours or your bridesmaids gowns can be a difficult task. For this DIY tip you will need to gather some artificial flowers in any size, shape or colour, some wire and tape. Thread the base of the flower heads onto the wire and then wrap tape around any wire that is still exposed at the end.
3. Guest book
Adding a guest book to the entrance of your venue can add a personal touch, and leaves you with the perfect keepsake. For this DIY tip you can get creative – all you really need is a book and a few of your favourite photos of you and your spouse-to-be.
Having an archway to walk down the aisle towards is one of the most beautiful DIY tips we could give. This one can be trickier than other smaller projects, however, due to the size of the archway. You can purchase a plain archway from any garden centre, and can customise it any way you like. A slick of white paint, some flowers and fairy lights can go a long way.
5. Goodie bags
Instead of having just place-cards, why not create a small goodie bag of treats and sweets for each guest, baring a tag with their name on it? This DIY tip guarantees that your guests have a small keepsake and that they know how thankful you are for their presence. Little trinket bags can be purchased at craft shops and filled with sweets, quotes or confetti – let your creativity flow!
