So you decided to showcase your creativity and craftiness by planning a DIY wedding. This approach is a popular one – in addition to making unique decorations, you can exhibit a rustic charm that can appeal to so many people. What you need to do now is start figuring out how to turn your wedding vision into reality. While making your own wedding decorations can save you money, it can be more demanding of your time. If you are not careful, it can also start to feel overwhelming, as you will need to make sure everything looks great in time for your special day. One of the most important things you can do is take time to plan out everything you need, and figure out how you can make the most impressive decorations, while avoiding unnecessary stress and time constraints.

1. Make Sure You Feel Confident In Your Plans, And Your Schedule

Make plans, assess potential costs, and look for obstacles with your DIY wedding planning as soon as possible. Your goal should be to make sure everything is taken care of, and with enough time left open to correct problems that arise. While you can never truly expect the unexpected, you can certainly give yourself time to adjust to the unexpected.

2. Look For Support Among Your Bridesmaids And Family Members

If you have crafty people who are ready to help, let them! Even if you are confident in your ability to accumulate the right materials and assemble everything, the crafting process itself can be time-consuming. Help can be key in your efforts to ensure everything is ready in time.

3. Find Opportunities To Use Personal Items, Like Photos, In Your Decorations

If you want to add extra personal touches, you can incorporate photos of yourself and your partner into centerpieces and other decorative items. This gives you a chance to tell your story through pictures, and let people see a little more of how you two fell in love!
