We got married on 22nd May this year, it was a fantastic day. The wedding was in a Scottish woodland next to a waterfall and the reception in a local hotel. We crafted lots of different items to try and save some money, I've put some photos below, hope you like our wedding diy!
This is my wedding day jewellery, I also made the bridesmaids and both mums a necklace each.
These are the bridesmaid flowers made of crepe and tissue paper;
This is a sign we made to hang above the door of the folly where we were married;
And a felt heart garland wrapped around the balcony of the folly, overlooking the river;
These are the programs, printed on our computer with a small vial of bubbles attached (we weren't allowed confetti at the site);
We made hundreds of these origami lilies for decoration;
I also made some smaller lilies to make these twig centerpieces for the reception;
Each table at the reception was named after a different native tree, the top table was oak so we made (actually my mum made, as I didn't have time!) the leaf out of felt and attached with florist wire onto a small slice of birch wood.
Each place name was a hand sanded slice of birch wood with their name written on and a picture of their table name;
The cake was designed by us but made by a friend of my mums, two layers chocolate and bottom layer fruit cake;
And finally a photo of us on the balcony of the folly where we were married;
Hope you liked them!
