Cute Wedding Ideas That You Can DIY Instead of Buy!

BY The WMG Bride | 20 Feb, 2016 | 3007 views | 3 min read

Why buy when you can DIY - that's the mantra we follow at WMG. And really, with the vast expanse of information at our fingertips - I'd like to say, we found some cute ideas that no one has really used yet. Some are so simple, it will only take you like a minute to make them. Wanna see? Here you go! Glitter Things Up

When we saw these two cute ideas for centrepieces, we clearly went nuts. This one's so freaking easy. Take old stalks and slick them over with Fevicol and boom, add glitter. Another sweet way is to add a bit of glitter to the bottom of a vase to make it look awesome - sparingly though.

 Rope Backdrop

Take a sturdy rope - weave it up in braids and hang it up. Add a few roses at strategic places and lo, you have a boho backdrop. If you want it looking fancier, add a curtain holder and drape the rope braid on it. The higher, the better!

 Blackboard Backdrop

Get a blackboard and get the cousin with the most beautiful handwriting to write up a love quote. Add a nice lamp, and it's super sweet!

 Suitcase Love

All you need is your papa's old suitcase or borrow one from your uncle. Place a few flowers and some books and stick up a bunting - awesome possum!

Instead of the usual flower chaddar, why not make one out of pom poms? Take a light cot, paint it metallic and let those pom poms hang!

 Bottles and More

Wrap your favourite vases in lace and make them your signature centrepieces. Coloured lace can add more glam too.

 Cup & Saucer Love

This one's pretty simple - stack up your mom's old cups and saucers and make them look like a neat centrepiece - serve with flowers, cookies and macaroons.
