Many couples are excited to showcase a DIY spirit when creating the look for their wedding. While this approach is often taken to create a rustic wedding theme, there are many ways to set your wedding apart when you work to create your own decorations. If you want your wedding to have a classic look, or if you want to give your event a touch of whimsy, repurposed items can serve you well. Taking mason jars, lanterns, antiques, and other items and using them to decorate your space can give your event a distinct look, one that stands apart from other weddings while being a showcase for your personality. While the opportunities afforded to couples taking a DIY decorating approach are attractive, be careful about what you commit to, as you may put more demands on your time than you anticipate!

You can show off pieces that stand out, or pick up antiques to give your event a nostalgic quality. DIY decorations and repurposed items can often be included at rustic weddings.
