Backdrops & Altars
Everyone knows you usually get married at an altar, but did you think about spicing it up? A feature wall or a backdrop is a great place to get photos taken, because who doesn’t love a flower wall photo op! As well as also being an easy way to convey your theme without taking up too much space.
Secondly, a huge part of weddings nowadays, signography covers everything from seating plans, to decorative signs and pictures. Even if you’re a DIY novice, you can succeed with these, because they can be as simple as you like!
Candles, Fairy Lights & Lighting
Equally important is lighting up your venue, so be sure to check whether your venue has different lighting options. However, if they don’t or you want to add a little more, DIY has never been easier. Stringing up fairy lights or adding candles can transform your venue into a fairy tale dream.
Alternative Decorative Ideas
The great thing about wedding decor is that there is no limit to how much you include, and it doesn’t have to be traditional! More and more trends use modern bunting, ribbons, props and furniture. Which ones will you DIY for your wedding?!
Everything to Do With Wedding Tables
Don’t stress about your tables! We know there is a lot to think about when it comes to layouts, place cards and even more, but there is plenty that you can DIY well ahead of your wedding so take a deep breathe and dive into these inspirational ideas.
It is likely that your venue will already have shown you how they usually layout their tables. But if you are still considering options, have a look at some less-traditional trends. DIY your wedding table layouts too – why not?!
Place Setting Cards
Your guests need to know where they will be seated, so place cards are essential for your guests. It just so happens they are one of the easiest wedding elements to DIY too; from simple cards to wooden keepsakes or incredible drinks coasters…
Similarly with place cards, if you have multiple tables, you might want to include table numbers. Again, super easy to DIY and you can incorporate whatever theme you choose. They will form part of your centrepieces so make sure they compliment each other if you are adding more to your wedding tables.
