Easy DIY Wedding Decorations

The cost of throwing your perfect wedding has skyrocketed over the years, and many brides are turning to DIY solutions to keep decor costs under control. But we get it – you barely have time to plan your wedding, let alone spend hours toiling over Pinterest’s millions of paper flower tutorials. So we’ve compiled a list of the four chicest, easiest DIY decorations that any bride could throw together. So call your bridesmaids, crack open a bottle of wine, and let’s get crafting.

Lace Wrap

Love the look of glass bottles, jars, and vases but want to give them a little something extra? Wrap your glassware in lace and spray with fabric adhesive or starch. Better yet, use the lace as a stencil and spray paint over it, leaving the painted pattern behind. This is great for creating cool light patterns on your candle holders.

Photobooth Backdrop

Looking for a way to give your photobooth a personal touch? Try creating your own backdrop. This is an anything goes project: string together copies of your favorite childhood photos, create a wall of paper flowers, or use shiny paper to create a fun, reflective backdrop.

Citrus Centerpieces

If you’re looking for an easy way to add a big, bright pop of color, fill your flower arrangements, vases, and tables with citrus fruits. Lemons, oranges, and limes are relatively inexpensive, and the visual pay-off is a major wow moment. As an added bonus, the party is sure to smell great.

Living Arrangement

Save a ton of money on the flowers by investing in potted living plants. The pots double as a great favor for your guests, and the live flowers will provide a more organic, natural appeal than cut arrangements. Don’t have a green thumb? Colorful cacti and succulents make beautiful centerpieces.
