How many weddings a person attends in his life time? And how many he actually remembers? It is true that we only remember the unique stuff we come across, things that reflect a character we are drawn to, or events that stay fresh in our memories because of how we felt at the time. For a wedding, the best way to personalize it is, perhaps, the DIY stuff you plan on displaying.
When you put so much time and energy into creating something from the scratch on your own just to make the occasion feel special, it shows true love and care that you decorate your wedding with. It could be anything, big or small, depending on the taste of the bride and groom. It could be created by the Best men or bridesmaids. From hand making the seating numbers to creating an elegant wedding monogram, you can cut down on the budget cost so much by taking matters into your own lovely hands. For inspiration, you can find several design platforms teemed with ideas and tutorials to help make things easier for you. But, surely we do not want things to mess up on your wedding either because of the amateur preps or an unreliable tutorial. You cannot take such risks right before your wedding day. You might end up buying expensive stuff causing you more loss than benefit.
