Planning a DIY wedding

Anyone that’s planning a wedding will know that you can simply never have too many decorating ideas. So, here are a few of our favourites.

When it comes to styling your Big Day, it’s the little touches that are key to making sure your own personality shines through. If you’re not sure where to start, or could just use a little extra inspiration, here are a few simple ways to give your wedding that homespun feel.

Pretty Little Pieces

In suspense

Whether it’s well-placed lanterns or artfully positioned bunting, hanging decorations can brighten even the most minimal of venue walls. For a twist on kitsch village fête style, try hanging a string of wooden hearts on the top table.

Chalk memo boards

Love notes

Chalkboards make cute and quirky wedding signs. Stock up on a few and you can use them to welcome guests to your venue, as table number placards, or for displaying the day’s busy schedule. If you don’t get that swirly lettering perfect on the first try, you can always rub it out and start again.

The Finishing Touch

Fresh arrangement

Choosing flowers can be one of the most stressful (and expensive) parts of your wedding planning. So why not opt for a more pared-back style? A spray of wild flowers in a vintage jug, or a row of glass bottles filled with bright blooms can make centrepieces that are just as pretty as professional arrangements.
