Most of today's brides are more interested in making their own wedding accessories. It includes items like wedding favors, invites, centerpieces et al. Making the DIY crafts while planning a wedding is some thing great and gives you a relive from your stress mostly saving money along the way.

 

Ok,let’s break down now;

 

1.DIY wedding invitations
Nowadays computers are more high-tech but more user-friendly; so why not use them? You have many options to create your DIY wedding invites on your computer, depending on your computer and design skills. Pre-designed invitations are available from many super stores, craft stores and invitation printers; you can buy them and insert your wedding details using your home printer.

 

 

This idea will be wonderful for the brides who are cost-conscious, but not very eager to design the entire wedding invitation. Yet it won't work if you don't have a printer suitable for the job. So before buying the blank DIY invitations, confirm whether your printer can printout in the particular paper type of such invitations. Otherwise you will have to take the costlier option of buying a printer.

 

2.DIY wedding favors can benefit you
DIY wedding favors are actually a practical way to stay within the budget you can afford. People can never escape the fact that most homemade goods are a lot cheaper than store-bought items. This is because you are in charge of all the possible purchase-able things that are necessary in making the favors. And obviously, there's no need for you to pay someone who helped you handcraft you favors.

 

 

As you may know, a wedding is all about you and your groom-to-be. It should be planned according to your personal desires. Perhaps it is also a great way if you will gonna include your own personal touch on some of the details of your wedding. Thus, making your own wedding favors is just a cool idea to consider. You will be the one who will determine the design you want, and you can easily pick the style and the kind of personalization for your wedding favors. Instead of your names and wedding date, you can also personalize each favor with each name of your guest. However, if you are expecting a large number of people, it may not be a good decision as it could take months to finish them all.

 

3.DIY Veil 
There is no doubt that it is the most classic accessory for bride. No matter where the wedding is held, it often is an integral part of bride`s costume. It has not only added the holy feeling for wedding, but also show the elegance of our brides. The veil can be various lengths. For winter weddings long and multi-layered veils are more suggested, while short and light ones for summer weddings. In addition, veils, like persons, have their characters, too. So you can also choose such one which can show your personality. Also, it is a basic principle that veil should match the dress.

4.DIY flower bouquet
Flower bouquets and flower arrangements are also some of the easiest things you can make at home. However, using fresh flowers means you will need to make the arrangements a few hours before he wedding. This is fine if it is a small wedding and you have enough time and a lot of friends and family members to help you. But if not, you can always resort to using dried flowers, as you can prepare these a few days ahead of your wedding. Using plastic flowers is also a good and cheap alternative. Besides, table and hall décor need not always consist of flowers. Anything ranging from candles, pebbles, stones and twigs to pieces of different materials like crepe, tissue, net and silk and anything else that tickles your fancy, with a bit of metallic spray, is bound to look uniquely wonderful.

 

 

5.DIY card box
The most basic card box is just a box and a lid covered in pretty paper or fabric. Cut a slit in the lid of the box, and there you have it. But with ample time, you can create something much more interesting. Design a box that looks like stacked gift boxes, make something unique out of a wooden birdhouse, or create a card box from an old mailbox. A lot of brides like to make special signage for their weddings, and this another good project to start on early. It's not so much that it is difficult, as it is something which can be easily stored away when complete. Always save fragile or perishable DIY projects until closer to your wedding.

 

 

6.DIY wedding attire
Making your own wedding attire can be one of the hardest DIY projects, so it is wise to start really early. This will give you ample time to alter, adjust, re-make, or even decide not to make that special part of your wedding wardrobe. Unless the bride is a professional seamstress, she should really not attempt to make her own wedding gown. The same goes for the bridesmaid jewelry gifts, by the way - it's a job best left to professionals. But simpler accessories such as the bridal veil or a garter can be well within the abilities of a creative bride. Start after you have purchased your wedding dress, since you will need to match the color of the tulle to the fabric of your gown.

7.DIY wedding jewelry
I made a necklace, earrings and charm bracelet for myself for the rehearsal dinner. And then for the day of the wedding I made my bridesmaids and mother earrings, necklaces and bracelets that went with my color scheme. You can make jewelry for your wedding party, or this may be an activity you all can participate in together. Some stores have jewelry that is partially made which can be easier for novices. You can find glass beads that look like real jewelry at craft stores, and brooches at thrift shops and estate sales. Brooches can be used for shoe buckles, a choker, as part of a necklace, as part of a bouquet, on a hat, or on a belt.

8.DIY guestbook
The guestbook is a great place for creativity and a place to show your theme and or color scheme. Our colors were gray and black and our theme was "Vintage Library". I covered a thick cardboard with gray cotton fabric, punched holes in it and put in metal rings to make a book. Then I decorated it with a large vintage ribbon with French script, black and white ribbon and a faux flower. There is a vintage looking sign that says "Guest Book" on it. Inside I have tea dyed library cards that look old and vintage that our guests took out of the book and signed. Other themes that can be expressed in a guest book are: rustic, using elements like burlap and jute, beach, using images of water or shells, or travel, using images of maps or suitcases. There are also many ideas using other items instead of books. Some of these ideas can include: a large poster, perhaps with a picture of the couple or shaped as the initial of the couple's last name, an item of furniture, a quilt, or even small pieces of paper that the guests put into a beautiful or decorative container. Ideas for the container could be a vintage suitcase for a travel themed wedding or a birdcage for a bird or nature themed wedding.

9.DIY centerpieces
wanted to make centerpieces, but that would have taken a lot of time. So I made part of our centerpieces. To go with our literary themed wedding I made stacks of classic books. Our flowers in their containers were then laid on top of the books by the florist. Our flowers were composed of mostly real flowers mixed with paper flowers made from a book I chose. It was a DIY project, but it was done by the florist instead of me. Homemade flowers are a great way to go. You can mix them with real flowers or only have homemade flowers. Flowers can be made of fabric, ribbon, burlap, silk or even recycled nylon stockings. Other centerpieces you can make could be: globes sitting on top of small vintage suitcases for a travel wedding, pictures of the couple in decorative frames, candles in burlap trimmed mason jars for a rustic wedding, or elegant table numbers. I made all of my table numbers easily and cheaply with two colors of scrapbook paper and glue.

10.DIY wedding bags
Before starting your handmade purse, a few things must come first. Find the right fabric for the handmade clutches. The fabric should be strong enough to carry the weight of the items inside. If you will use the handmade pouch for shopping, then you must look for a strong fabric. If you are making several pouches, buy a lot of fabric. You can make great savings when you buy your fabrics at thrift stores or yard sales. You can also recycle materials in making your handmade pouch, like an old pair of jeans and your favorite t-shirt. Nowadays, handmade pouches are made from sacks, tetra packs and other recycled materials. More so envision, the design of the handmade cluth purse, better yet put it in writing so that you will not forget or loss a thing.

11.DIY wedding tiara
When planning for your own bridal tiara to be made, there are several factors that need to be thought through. Similar to buying a made tiara from the store, the bride must have an idea of the style, design and color of the wedding gown and how the tiara would fit into the look. As an accessory it should not deter the attention of the guests from seeing the bride's beauty. In addition, the planned hairstyle for the wedding needs to be considered as some bridal tiaras are limited to certain hairstyles.

 

The Baroque Design Of Wedding Tiara For Bridal

 

With some of those considerations already in check, it is then time to think of the design of the tiara. Sketch out some ideas of how you would want it to look and the materials you might need. Doing this simple drawing exercise helps you think about what is possible while unleashing your creativity. It also gives the designer an idea on what materials to purchase to make the design a reality. A few common materials may include mini nose pliers, wire cutters, glue gun, silver plated wire, comb, a tiara headband as well as beads made from crystal clear glass. Besides beads, alternatives materials may include pearls or even Swarovski crystals, depending on the style and the budget. These materials can be easily found in any decent craft store.

 

12.DIY Hairstyle
The half updo is a popular hairstyle that can be worn by women with either straight or curly hair.  It can be accented with your favorite hair accessories.  This style has become popular for proms, weddings and any affair.  Celebrities have been wearing the half updo to various red carpet events.

The two most popular half updo style is the side part half updo and the classic half pony tail with the top teased into a high quiff.  Both are easy to do by yourself. 
It is important to note that before styling your hair, it should be clean. So shampoo and condition your hair before styling it.  Apply your favorite leave-on conditioner or styling mousse to party damp hair and blow-dry.  For the side part half updo, part your hair on your preferred side.  Gather about a fourth of your hair to the back of your head and secure it with your favorite hair accessory.  Arrange the front of your hair by pulling it low to the forehead to make bangs. This classic look is great for any occasion and is easy to do. 

 

13.DIY Cake
Baking a birthday cake is simply not the same as the mastery involved in creating a wedding cake. The design itself is just one aspect of it. When baking a cake for a large number of people, there is a lot of structural work. Think of a wedding cake as a piece of construction- if the building is not put together properly, it will surely topple over or collapse.

14.DIY Catering
A lot of people who have been involved in the restaurant or catering business have a hard time handing the work off to someone else when they know they could do it themselves for half the price. This is your day-you should not be worried about the timing and temperature of food for 100+ people. It's simply too big of a task to take on without sacrificing the precious time that will fly by on your wedding day.

15.DIY Video
Videography is a service that many couples choose to forego altogether. Many people are more concerned with photography. Wedding videos can be expensive if you choose to have the footage edited. If you just want to see snippets of the entire day, you could ask a family member or friend who has a video camera to try to record the big parts of the day so you will have something look back on besides pictures.

16.DIY Makeup

You do your makeup a certain way every day because that is the way that you like to look. I've always found that a makeup artist who doesn't know me makes me look like a completely different person. It's either way too dark or I just don't like the colors on me. I've always been happier doing my own makeup-when I get it professionally done, I usually end up wiping it off and fixing it myself anyway.

 

 

17.DIY Rhinestone Bridal Shoes
There are two ways you can go about decorating your shoes: the tops or the bottoms - or three ways if you decorate both. Many women choose to affix rhinestones to the tops of their high heels for some extra shimmer as they walk. Or for some more subtle shine, simply glue to the rhinestones to the soles of your high heels (just not the part that makes contact with the ground - you don't want to fall on your wedding day!). If you're not a high heel kind of girl, rhinestones are a great way to glam up the shoes you will be wearing. We've even seen wedding sneakers and flip-flop sandals decorated with rhinestones!

 

 

18.DIY Rhinestone Bridal Hair Accessories
Rhinestone bridal hair accessories, including headbands, bridal hair combs, veils, barrettes, and tiaras, are especially popular as they're so easy to make. Just purchase the plain item you wish to decorate and go to town on it with rhinestones! Because most hair accessories are hard surfaces, they're very simple to decorate. As for the veil, you could decorate just the part that attaches into your hair, or put rhinestones spaced out on the actual veil so that it sparkles and shines as you move your head.
