Homemade Decorations to Make Your Wedding Stand Out

Your wedding day is a special day that deserves to stand out as one of the most beautiful events of the year. There are plenty of gorgeous, decadent decorations to choose from – but how do you go about creating a stunning wedding if you’re committed to taking care of every little detail yourself?

Whether you’re hoping to save a little cash or perhaps wanting to make your wedding day as sustainable as possible, there are plenty of perks to making your wedding decorations from scratch. To help you bring your dream wedding to life, here are three homemade decorations that are sure to make your big day one to remember.

DIY Bouquets

Flowers are a staple of any big wedding, and for most brides, having a bridal bouquet and plenty of floral displays that stand out are crucial.

So, how can you put a new spin on this classic decor item? Rather than heading off to a florist to put together your flower displays, you may want to consider arranging some beautiful bunches yourself.

For a unique, rustic look, consider incorporating dry flowers, or picking your own wildflowers. Not only will these look stunning tied to your reception chairs and adorning your top table, they’re sure to turn heads as you make your way down the aisle.

If you do choose to pick your own flowers for your wedding day, don’t forget to check for any laws or regulations that may prevent you from doing so. While many wildflower species are protected, there’s nothing stopping you from planting some seeds of your own in your garden space to harvest as the big day draws closer.

Repurposed Centrepieces

Making your own wedding decor doesn’t always mean that you have to shop for new materials and equipment. In fact, by simply repurposing items that you already have at home, you can take a more mindful – and much less wasteful – approach to creating your wedding decor.

For example, if you have any empty jars or bottles lying around, you could fill them with fairy lights or flowers to then place as centrepieces on each of your reception tables. Or, you may want to paint your table numbers onto them, for an unusual but functional way to decorate each table.

Making DIY table decorations and centrepieces is the perfect opportunity to wow your friends and family as they sit down to dinner to celebrate your wedding.

An Interactive Display

Many couples choose to incorporate a message or photo wall into their wedding reception decor. Not only does this give your decor a personal touch, it’s also easy to pull together with items that you already have at home.

Gather some photos and string, or some coloured card and blue-tac – then ask your guests to each write down some creative photo captions, or a heartfelt message to display.

With just a few craft supplies, you can easily create an eye-catching decorative wall that doubles as a source of entertainment for your guests.

There Are No Limits to What You Can Create

The best part about making your own wedding decorations is that there are no limits to what you can create.

Each item can be made to feel as personal, unique, or standout as you wish, making for truly unforgettable scenery that both you and your guests will love and appreciate.
