Wedding Boutonniere

Whilst there are brides who just don’t do DIY, there are others for whom the very idea of being able to craft every little bit of their wedding gives them a thrill. Judging from the pictures of these weddings all over the Internet, these brides are particularly good at them too.

I salute you brides. For I am one of the former. The kind who, whilst really good at delegating ideas, is not that keen on doing too much herself.

But here is a list of some DIY ideas that even someone like me could get excited about:

  • Make your own boutonniere – here’s something obvious and not nearly as difficult as the myriad other options available for DIY. A little bit of greenery and a select flower or two (orchids, roses) or even beaded wireframe flowers make what can be an expensive item, really reasonable, and fun.
  • Make your own veil – wedding veils are a little thin on the ground, and when you find them, they’re not quite what you had in mind. All you need is some tulle, a headband, a few embellishment like beads, sequins, rhinestones or flowers (felt or paper flowers are even better) and a hot glue gun, and you’re on your way to becoming a princess.
  • Make your own earrings – remember those bead shops that were all the rage a while ago? Well, many of them are still there, and putting together a bit of bling to hang in your ears, precisely to match your colour palette or your dress, will cost you barely more than a takeaway coffee.
  • Make your own floral centrepieces – these are really easy once you know how, and there area myriad websites with step-by-step tutorials if you but search. All you will need are 50 – 80 flowers with hardy stems (like a rose, protea or sunflower), sticky floral tape, secateurs and a stem stripper. Better still, make your own paper flowers. You can re-use them afterwards.
  • Make your own wedding monogram stamp – these rubber stamps are easy to make; you’ll need to have enough DIY savvy to design your own monogram first. Print the design and then you will need a piece of rubber (an eraser will do), tracing paper, a good pencil, an art knife or small cutters, and ink.
