There are tons of ways you can add that special touch to your upcoming wedding. Budget savvy couples these days are incorporating more and more DIY projects into their weddings; from aisle runners to petal cones and everything in between, you can totally make your wedding your unique.

Get your bridal party together and have a DIY party or spend some quality time with your fiance and do these fun projects together. Here are a few of our favorites that are simple to complete, you can create them on any budget and oohhhhh so fun to do!
Save the dates ~ These are sent to your guests to let them know about your upcoming nuptuals. Get creative with them, fun and playful, you can do a cute photo in a park of you both. Or for a destination wedding, use a mock postcards or luggage tag. This is the first introduction to your wedding, let them see you fun side, so if you are going with a theme, this is the time to introduce it.

Aisle Runner ~ this is a beautiful way to add a personal touch to your ceremony space. We did one for our wedding and guests complimented us on it all day; incorporate your initials, monogram, wedding date, theme, favorite colors…anything you would like to make it your own.
Favors ~ anything goes when it comes to favors, but edible is all the rage. Guests want to reflect on your day with something they can enjoy, and what better way to say thank you for coming than a little treat. Homemade wine, cookies or chocolate would be that something special guests would love to have. Just keep in mind you don’t want to be baking then evening before your wedding.

Petal cones ~ another item we did for our wedding; little holders for rose petals. Guests use them to hold petals and shower you as you walk down the aisle as husband and wife.
A great way to again incorporate your wedding colors into the ceremony, and super simple.
Menu cards ~ such an elegant touch to your wedding. Venues often provide their pre-printed versions, but what better way to add a special touch then with a personalized menu card. Tying in your monogram or colors on a playful menu is another great,
easy-to-do item.

Any of these great DIY items are sure to make your wedding personal and unique, all super simple and fun to do.
