Even if you’re not the craftiest bride or groom-to-be in the world, there’s plenty you can do to add some special touches to your Big Day. We love it when couples personalise different aspects of their decor and celebration, and think it really goes towards guests feeling truly immersed in the couple and their relationship on the day! From gorgeous personalised hangers to vintage family photo table ‘numbers’, pretty backdrops and a gracious guest-baked dessert table, here are some of our top wedding DIY projects which we think you can totally handle*.

5. A Pretty Photo Booth Backdrop
There are loads of great DIY ribbon backdrop tutorials online, we like this one from OhLovelyDay cause it’s got some romantic lace in it too!
6. Your Boutonnieres (or Buttonholes)
Anyone who’s made these mentions how simple they are – just follow this step-by-step guide from OnceWed.
7. Your Ceremony/Mass Booklets
As simple or as complicated as you need or want them to be. Just don’t bite off more than you can chew! This project from Boho Weddings looks like a good bet!
8. Your Dessert Table (with a little help from your guests)
If your venue is cool about it, have your guests contribute their signature sweet to a dessert table. It’ll be a highlight for everyone and a great surprise for you!

Pop in a colouring book and markers, some little games, stickers and anything else you can get your hands on from the Euro shop. Guaranteed to keep them busy for an hour at least!
