Do-It-Yourself Wedding
Budget Friendly Tips & Ideas

Who are we kidding, weddings are very expensive. Doing a big part of  the crafting yourself can save a bundle of money.  Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Just about everything can be a do it yourself.  Party favors are a must, we all love them, they are cute, and serve as a momento.  My suggestion, buy in bulk! Pens are great wedding favors and can be personalized for cheap.  Key chains are also great, who doesn’t need one of those?

When it comes to decorations,  saving money is key.  As far as flowers for the ceremony itself, try buying them at the local flower mart, they sell in bigger quantities at wholesale prices. Make your own bouquet and use the others to line your walk ways. For your reception, making menus out of little table top chalk boards is very creative and budget friendly idea.  A few long stem flowers and an empty wine bottle and voila! You have a beautiful, inexpensive reception table centerpiece.

With so many DIY options to save you money, now you can splurge on your wedding invitations!

Bilingual Wedding Invitations

It’s common for multicultural weddings to use bilingual wedding invitations.  Often times couples will choose to have either one invitation with both languages or two separate invitations. If you are doing a single wedding invitation, you may choose to have one language on the front and one on the back. Another option is to have both languages side by side.  If you’re thinking of going a different route and like the idea of two different invitations, I suggest coordinating colors and themes or matching the two completely. Here are a few ideas to help you achieve your desired look.
