It may sound like a lot of work, but more and more couples are taking control of their wedding decor and putting their own unique and personalized spin on it. It’s a great way to add more personal touches to your wedding day and also save some money in the process.Some couples may worry that taking on the DIY task might take away from their wedding day, but here are ways to create beautiful arrangement while finding the balance to enjoy the festivities.
Create Your Vision
Sites like Pinterest and Instagram are a great way to get the inspiration flowing. Pull ideas from other weddings, look at different color schemes, and get started on a vision board. Your wedding day is about you and should be unique to you as a couple, so definitely use Pinterest as a guide instead of a rulebook.
Sites like The Bouqs sell beautiful, pre-arranged floral bouquets, but couples can also buy bundles that they can assemble themselves. Browse through the DIY catalog for more inspiration and details.
While you may already have your checklists and timelines ready to go, be sure to account for the time it takes to gather your items and create your arrangements. Centerpieces can be made 1-2 days before the wedding, while bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages should be made the day before or day of. With The Bouqs’ bundles, they come cut-to-order and shipped directly from the farm so they arrive fresher and last longer! It’s important to keep them stored in a cool spot to avoid wilting and keep them in good condition.
Ask For Help
Yes, it may be called “Do-It-Yourself,” but you certainly don’t have to go through it alone! Enlist the help of your wedding party, friends, or family and divide and conquer. Make sure you have plenty of tools, and pictures on hand so that everyone knows what the final product should look like. Don’t forget to oversee them once they’re all done to make sure they meet your expectations.
