Weddings can quickly go over budget, therefore, DIY decorations are a great option. Bring your wedding day visions to life without breaking the bank.  DIY decorations add a touch of personalization and uniqueness to your celebration. Pinterest is a great place to find ideas on DIY wedding decor that you and your guests will love. Below we highlight a few Pinterest inspired ideas.

Chalkboard Signs

Chalkboards and handwritten decorations are very on trend for 2018 weddings and are easy to create on your own. Find a few large chalkboards and colorful or neon chalk from local craft stores and get creative! Chalkboards are perfect for menus, welcome and thank you signs or to relay information about your wedding day schedule and events.

Photo Backdrops

A great alternative to a photobooth is creating your own photo backdrop or selfie wall. Guests can use the space to take their own fun photos. You can personalize the space with your names or wedding date. If you wanted to go even simpler, you could make a large photo frame out of cardboard, then decorate it and add flowers if you wish.

If you’re looking for a unique twist on table centerpieces, try a DIY candy bowl! Not only is this project very easy, your guests will love snacking on candy or taking some home as an edible wedding favor. Other great DIY centerpiece options are lanterns with candles or flowers, which can be purchased at local craft stores. If you want to stick with flowers you could use decorated wine bottles as opposed to vases.
