I do! DIY wedding projects

Today Chris and I are celebrating our 3rd year wedding anniversary!
If you haven't seen pictures from our DIY wedding, you can go here.

In the spirit of our anniversary, I'm sharing 5 DIY wedding projects that I'm loving.

1- DIY washi tape escort cards
Washi tape seems to be everywhere now and using it on these tag escort cards is clever and colorful.


2. DIY bunting cake topper 
This cake topper is a change from your standard bride and groom figurine.
It can be made with fabric, craft paper, or even wallpaper (now there's a use for those Serena & Lily samples).

3- DIY ribbon wedding ceremony backdrop
This backdrop is unique and would make for some really beautiful ceremony pictures.

4- No-sew DIY table runners
The table runners at our wedding were a DIY project but were time-consuming to make because we sewed them. My friend Elizabeth also had DIY runners at her wedding but instead of sewing them, she simply used pinking shears to cut the fabric and left the edges raw. As you can see in the picture below, they looked great, especially in the bold chevron pattern.

5- birch table numbers
There are lots of ways to creatively display table numbers.
I love these ones made out of a sliced birch log, especially for a rustic wedding.


Thanks for dropping by!

  1. I love DIY weddings -- not only do they save money, but they're just that much more personal!
