DIY Wedding Inspiration

Spring is truly one of my favorite times of the year. I get a little sentimental when I see the fifth month of the year roll around, because May is the month in which my husband and I became a couple. If you’ve recently become engaged or have a wedding date looming, check out our awesome website section called “The Big I Do.”

The tagline for this set of how-to articles and videos is “Tie the Knot, Stylishly,” and it’s chock-full of inspiration and ideas for anyone who wants to put a personal touch on their wedding or reception. We’ve got the really fun stuff covered, like gorgeous centerpiece ideas, unique party favors and delicious cocktails that will wow and delight your guests. I’ve selected a few of my favorite projects, but you can browse through more ideas to find the ones that suit your style.

First up are these etched-glass bottle centerpieces.

I’m a sucker for any project that upcycles glass. These etched number bottles are a great option for traditional table numbers.

Next is my favorite wedding favor—easy and budget-friendly monogrammed paper bags.

Transform simple brown bags into something totally special with a monogrammed tag and raffia. The packaging alone will make your guests feel special.

Here are a few more party favor projects that are super easy to DIY:

And of course, you have to toast the happy couple!

For a twist on the signature cocktail, why not serve refreshing mint juleps? Silver cups bring a touch of glamour to the table.

Though it’s hard to choose just one from all these yummy cocktails …

It’s fun to brainstorm the décor and the menu, but any successful wedding starts with planning. Keep your stress level at bay with our tips for organizing your timeline, determining your wedding budget and keeping it all in check as the big day approaches.

We tapped event-planner-extraordinaire and flower-whisperer Amy Osaba to share her expertise in our wedding video series. These ideas are picked fresh from one of her events. What I love most about Amy’s style is her ability to balance elegant and feminine elements with more rustic and handmade details. Her unique combination results in beautifully styled events that make everyone feel special, and her projects can easily be used to spruce up your next opportunity to entertain, whether for a wedding, a shower or just any weekend get-together.

Check out Amy and her amazing style in this video below, then watch all our DIY wedding videos. I think you’ll love what you see!

  16. lead more Mexicans than Norwegians to let their hair grow long or let their wives and girl friends cut it, reducing the market for Mexican barbers and (maybe) driving down prices. Sweden's GNI may be lower than Norway's. Do Norwegians plan trips to Stockholm to have their hair trimmed? Or doesn't that count as a test of the theory? Low OBL deal for Your Website Ranking
