Making Time For DIY Projects While Planning Your Wedding

Is there time in your engagement period to work on DIY wedding projects? If you are someone who is comfortable with crafting work, you can have a relatively simple time making space on your calendar for work on pieces to feature at your wedding ceremony and reception. However, if you are relatively new to these projects, or if you have a shorter engagement period, it may be more difficult. There are a few things to consider if you want to make the work of crafting DIY decorations less difficult. Taking on simpler projects, or calling in the support of your wedding party members, can help. It can also be a good idea to minimize projects that require the use of real flowers, as their relatively short lifespan can leave you scrambling to complete projects close to the day of your wedding!

What Can DIY Projects Add To Your Wedding?

So what do people gain from featuring DIY projects in their wedding decorations? If you want to host a rustic wedding, or if you love the look of antique or repurposed items in your decorations, the right project can help you set your theme for the evening. Your projects also give you the opportunity to set up a look for your event that is distinct – after all, when you make something original, you can be confident that guests have not seen something similar at other weddings!

Give Yourself Time To Work If You Take On A Challenging Project

Even if you are comfortable with crafting and decorating tasks, give yourself ample time to work on a project. Your stress levels can be higher when you work on projects that are meant for your wedding. You also have to remember that you are already making space in your day for planning, plus your regular daily responsibilities, so you may have less energy and attention than you anticipate on many days. Working around this can help you make sure your efforts to create lovely decorations are successful.

The Trouble With Using Real Flowers In DIY Projects

While real flowers can add organic beauty to your wedding day, they can be difficult for you to work into a DIY project. Their short life span and fragility make them relatively difficult to deal with, even if they are lovely. If you are eager to work with flowers, try adding them onto completed projects when you are setting up for the wedding day if possible.
