Looking to infuse your wedding day with personalized details? Then DIY is the way to go (even if that doesn’t mean you do it all yourself). Shop the looks below to get inspired before you hit up Etsy or pull out your hot-glue gun.
For a DIY wedding, we suggest letting the bridesmaids have a bit of freedom, whether that means letting them choose their own silhouettes, colors, or even dresses. Mixing and matching lends itself well to a more low-key affair. For maximum convenience, choose dresses that are available in different areas, so even far-flung bridesmaids can purchase their dress.
We think this Gatsby-inspired headband will put your own spin on any dress (especially a simple one like the one featured here), making it a great accessory for a DIY wedding.

Table arrangements don’t always have to include flowers. In fact, these centerpieces are made solely from greenery snipped from houseplants available at local home-improvement stores. The wood block table numbers were cut from scrap lumber. Back to homepage
