Autumn time is quite beautiful, whether in the northern or southern hemisphere. Planning weddings during this time when the leaves turn colour is just breathtaking and the perfect inspiration for your Autumn DIY wedding. Your DIY wedding invitations, the beautiful decor and maybe even the bridal fashion colours and even how you accessorise the boutonnieres and wedding favours can take after it. With autumn under way in Australia and its neighbours and those across the globe, we’ve put together some ideas for your DIY wedding style.

Colour Trends for Autumnal Weddings

Pantone has released their autumnal colours with Marsala being the winner. The rustic Toasted Almond is quite popular with DIY weddings for the ease of matching it to recyclables and organic materials, but if you’re looking to add an old world charm with metal items such as birdcages and such, the Glacier Grays would be ideal for this wedding colour palette.

DIY Wedding Invitation Inspirations

When it comes to DIY wedding invites, you can be creative with do it yourself stationery items such as cardstock, specialty wedding paper, embellishments and various tools that can help you create the look you want. You need not break away from your wedding invitations budget. With a little guidance you can do anything you set your mind to.  You can include custom embossing, cutwork and designs on your DIY invites for weddings. Here’s how!

DIY Embossing can be done in 3 DIY techniques; heat embossing with stamp, glue, embossing powder & heat gun; stencils with a knitting needle, and embossing folder with a rolling pin. The first two options are ideal if you have a small design to emboss whereas the latter would be best for an all-over design.


DIY Cutwork can be done either through punches or using a stencil and craft knife. Punches are ideal for a focal or group of design(s) and borders whereas a stencil would be ideal for the former as well as inset design.
