Pinterest is full of great DIY ideas, but it can feel a little overwhelming. At Adore, we love hearing all the DIY projects our brides do themselves! It truly adds such a personal touch to your day. Plus, it can be so much fun especially if you get your whole bridal party involved. Whether your a professional crafter or this is your first DIY project, allow us to walk you through some of the best ones!
Lovely Leaf Menu
Greenery is all the rage right now, so why not incorporate it into your wedding in a new creative way! All you need are large fake leaves, white paint, and neat handwriting. Maybe you know a friend who has some calligraphy skills and would love to help you with this DIY project.
Liquid gold leaf can pretty much make anything look glamorous. Grab white latex balloons, liquid gold leaf, a print brush, and a ribbon for tying. Hold the balloon upside down and paint with the gold leave until you achieve the look you desire. Let these balloons float around your reception to add some sparkle to the atmosphere.
Petal Toss Bar
Set up a small table where guests can fill a cone full of flower petals to toss on the newlyweds after the ceremony has ended. This charming touch will make guests feel a part of your big day. Plus, it will make for some great photos and a splash of color.
This DIY project is great since it is quick, easy, and inexpensive. All it takes is some copper wire and then you can start bending! Now, you have cute and stylish signage for your seats during your reception!
