Sometimes, ‘homemade and thoughtful’ takes priority over the grand gestures that some weddings become associated with.

Wedding invitations

Wedding invitations are an exciting part of the planning process. At the end of the day, they help to set the scene for the big day and offer a special keepsake for your loved ones. Often, they’ll be displayed in people’s homes or be displayed in scrapbooks by those who find them particularly sentimental.

Why not hone your papercraft skills and make the invites yourself for your DIY wedding? You don’t have to be uber-talented to pull it off and the sentimental value will go down a treat. Pull together a personal design or replicate one you’ve seen online. You never know, it could be a gateway to a new hobby. Many find processes like these therapeutic and extremely rewarding. They’re a great way to channel your excitement once you’ve secured the details of your wedding day.

Personalised place settings

Another simple DIY wedding task that could save you money and add something unique to proceedings – making your own place settings is a great way to get people talking before the meal. You could go one step further and add little illustrations or stickers that bring them to life and showcase insight into that guest’s personality. Some couples choose to add a short sentence or rhyme as an added touch.

If you’re not confident enough to make them yourself, you could always commission someone to create them on your behalf. This way, you can outsource the logistics but still suggest ideas on how to bring them to life.

Personalised drinks

More couples are looking into ways in which they can enhance their guests’ food and drink experience. Whether with a donut wall, handmade cupcakes or something else entirely, there are plenty of ways to execute this.
One way is with a personalised drinks menu. You can go all out with unique cocktail and mocktail names that reflect the bride, groom and rest of the wedding party. Make these names as cryptic as you like so that you can keep your guests guessing.
