6 Simple DIY Wedding Ideas

More and more of us are plundering Pinterest, YouTube and the web for ideas and tutorials to DIY our weddings. Some of us are getting resourceful within tight budgets, others simply like the creative control or want their big day to be truly personal.

Whatever the motivation, here are six simple wedding DIYs to try:

1. Bouquets and buttonholes

It’s become increasingly popular to carry a bouquet that’s handmade or upcycled – as with so many aspects of modern nuptials, you are only constrained by your own skills, imagination and resources.
