The best thing about being creative and crafty is that when your big day comes, you will be able to do just about everything, provided you have the time and energy. That’s why most DIY brides start planning early, and gather helpers for the cause starting with DIY wedding invitations and its accompanying accessories.
Let’s face it, when you plan your big day, you need to be organised and as a DIY bride, you also need to keep your budget in mind. When you know what the theme of your wedding will be, and you know exactly what little embellishments and details that you will need. It’s just a matter of buying a little bit more than what you will need for the DIY wedding invitations, because you will need them for the stationery to be used on the day of the wedding, and other little items that makes a wedding so much more spectacular.
The DIY Wedding Invitation & Accessories
Your wedding invitation is the most important piece of stationery of your entire wedding. Well, that is apart from the piece of paper you’ve written your vows on. Being the bearer of good news, it will need to make an impact and with a beautiful handmade wedding invitation, it will make the desired lasting impression. Sent with the invitation are a few stationery accessories such as the reply card, the directions & accommodations card, and of course, the wishing well & registry card.
These items will need to reflect the design and style of the star being the invitation for the wedding. If you have used the likes of speciality paper coupled with a satin ribbon and a starfish diamante cluster for the DIY wedding invitation, then you should at least attempt to include some of these details into the accessories too, if not with the likes of the speciality textured paper and embellishments, at least with coloured paper and ribbon.
Day of the Wedding Stationery & Other DIY Accents for the Wedding
Apart from the wedding invitations and its accompanying accessories, on the day of the wedding you come across other stationery such as the seating chart, place cards, bomboniere cards, menus and more. These items too should include some design elements that reflect the DIY wedding invitations and its styling, so that the stationery style flows across the wedding. You can include a cluster on each place card, which your guests can take home as memento if they like. Other ways of adding accents to various aspects of your big day, would be to add the same cluster or brooch to the bride’s and bridesmaid’s bouquets, or add it to the guest book for that touch of glamour.
These are just some great ways and ideas for you to spice up your DIY wedding with affordable products available via the DIY Invitations online store. The best part is, when you buy more quantities you also get a lower price too!
