Here Are The 5 Ideas To Hand Craft Your Dream DIY Wedding:
1. Colored Carpets
No red carpet available, let that not bring you down. An alternative to this is by having a carpet of any color covered with red roses. By this you can save up the money spent in hiring a red carpet, or when you don’t have a carpet at all, make a path just with flowers leading to the main area. Having some flowers or even some shrubs of some colorful flower besides the pathway would add to the magnificence to the day.
2. Convert Your Barn Into A Romantic Wedding Venue
Having lots of space should be an asset to you. If your thought process works perfectly, your space in the farm for example a barn can be converted into a romantic wedding venue or used for dinner after the wedding. Lighting the barn up would look awesome with some decorations and candles in between would just do it perfectly for the couple. Considering music in the form of karaoke in the area would add to the beauty to the region. Possessing a farmhouse adds another benefit as you can host an after party there with some soft music, you do save up a lot for not renting a huge hall for the party.
3. Invitation Cards
While the guests are entering, they are usually greeted by cards. Don’t get them printed, that is common. Having some waste carboard cut into small pieces with the guests’ names written on it would be heart whelming. Placing them on the tables as reserved for the invitees is also a way to welcome the guests and show them the way where they are supposed to sit.
4. Personalized Photo Booth
Everyone likes being clicked, something to take back home for their scrapbook. Even though a professional photographer isn’t a bad option but this is a completely new and a cool idea. Setting up a stand with a camera is an option and to complement the same, having funny looking banners of posters are ideal ways to get going. If possible, having an Intax (a camera with instant photos) would provide the guests with best results.
5. Customized Chair Backs
Do not spend money on the decorations, it is a waste. It is your wedding, make the chair backs look like the way you want, vis-à-vis the theme of the wedding. Purple is the perfect color if your wedding is themed royal and red is stands for romance & love, depends upon you to keep the ribbons or the cloth ready as per the color of your theme.
