Summer is approaching and with it comes wedding season. For a while, weddings became increasingly more elaborate and therefore expensive until an attitude change seemed to occur and now DIY is the new expensively purchased.

Here are a number of my favourite wedding DIYs with links to there sites they came from so you can go visit and discover more gorgeous items to craft.

Easy Flower Pot Centerpiece

Seen onHearth and Vine

Quote from the website: “My sister showed me a picture of something a friend of hers made. It was a flower pot centerpiece. She knew I would want to make one too, and of course, I did. This particular photo showed a terracotta pot within a pot, planted with pansies and a candle in a hurricane vase.”

DIY Bridesmaid Balls

Quote from the website:  “Lately, I have been working on the bridesmaids flowers that the girls will walk down the aisle with. At first of course I thought about fake and real flowers. After working as a florist for some time I learned that real flowers while beautiful they die and are quite pricey.” 

DIY Inscribed Beach Stone Wedding Centerpiece

Seen on –  Sustain My Craft Habit

Quote from the website:   “We recently saw a fun idea of having guests write messages onto stones as a keepsake at a wedding. We’ve adapted this idea to use rocks inscribed with wedding-related words to incorporate into a natural centerpiece with beautiful fresh seasonal flowers. We’ve use hydrangeas in this example but any flowers of your choice such as roses, lilies, or tulips. Just use a glass jar with a clear bottom that the rocks can be easily seen through.”
