Wedding signs is definitely the best way to add DIY elements to your wedding, there are so many ways you can add this from the ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast to the evening reception, there really are so many options it just all comes down to your creativity. We think it can also add some personality to your wedding, whether you choose DIY or hire a professional the pieces will be bespoke to you and your wedding.
So get yourself on pinterest if you haven’t already and get saving some ideas.
There are so many different styles of signage you can make, we think the easiest DIY one is Acrylic, its easy to get hold of and great to work with. So grab some acrylic signs, wooden plywood boards or poster paper. You can then paint these, order vinyl for them, or you could also just deign online and then have them printed professionally. The options are endless.
We love Macrame, it’s so versatile and can be used in so many ways in your wedding. If you’re very craft like and enjoy making things then this is a great one for DIY wedding ideas during self isolation, or if you’re in a local lockdown. Learning the different knots is probably the hardest part of macrame but once you get the hang of them, all you REALLY need is time and come on guys we’ve got lots of that right now haven’t we!
Here are some YouTube videos that we think are great if you fancy learning yourself.
place names and favours
Whether you’re having a huge wedding or you’ve decided to go for the maximum allowed for a covid wedding, you will no doubt be thinking of Place names AND favours. These are another great option for some DIY wedding ideas and add some personality to your day, and they can be made simply, or you can get very creative and go all out on them.
There really are so many options from place cards to acrylic, paper and even painting on a leaf. This would also be the perfect time if you’re thinking about making some flavoured gins or your own chutney as they will need some time for the flavours to develop so this is a great opportunity to get to work on them.
The possibilities are truly endless!
