Wedding Decor Always Calls for a Personalized DIY Touch

Whether exchanging vows in a house of worship, a backyard under a flower-draped pergola, or a coastal beach with the setting sun as a backdrop, your wedding decor should be as memorable as you are. Regardless of which one of you proposed (modern times call for modern methods), you’ll make the wedding even more special with a heaping dash of DIY magic.

Roll up your sleeves and head to! You’ll find all of the supplies you need to make this wedding day a celebration of the heart and a feast for the eyes. From decorative bird and butterfly centerpieces to wedding party flower baskets and romantic lace table runners, wedding details couldn’t be more enjoyable to design.

Get Personal with Wedding Decor

Personalize the day with details that show off your true qualities. From edgy to born-and-bred country, your personality is what truly makes this day special. Are you more low-key but your partner just loves to live it up? Create an elegant blending of styles that will welcome each side. Most of all, you are making a vow to share your lives together. That starts with a (harmonious) compromise on decor!

A Ceremony Full of Romance

The wedding ceremony has several areas of focus. It begins with the aisle and guest seating, and the pièce de résistance – the altar, or place for exchanging vows. First, you’ll need to narrow down your color scheme. From whites and golds to a full-on rainbow bonanza, the color palette will help you tie everything together.

Since you can opt for premeasured chair sashes in a medley of colors and fabrics, or you can go crazy and cut your own. Paper Mart has bolts of fabric in everything from romantic lace and elegant lamé to flouncy tulle. Take your pick: shimmer tulle, polka dot tulle, sparkling tulle – the options are nearly endless. You can also show off your eco-friendly side with natural jute fabric in a variety of colors.

First of all, wrap the fabric around the chairs, or use it to decorate the aisle seating only. Along the aisle row, make sure you tuck in plenty of floral sprays and fabric rose petals, matching your chosen color scheme, to give the space a finishing touch.

How does the alter fit in with your wedding decor? You could keep things simple with a small decorated table, or you can bring in a beautiful lattice arch or arbor. If your wedding is indoors, you could further decorate the arch with fabric and floral details interwoven with ribbons, such as printed wedding ribbon or gold center striped wedding ribbon.

If it’s an outdoor wedding, work with existing natural features, and add your choice of finishing touches. A pre-built wooden arch with trailing English ivy and periwinkle in bloom is beautiful in its own right. Another option would be to tie on some bows or hang some four-inch colored Swallowtail butterflies off the latticework. 

Reception Celebrations

At the reception, you’ll want to decorate the guest tables and the wedding party table. You can use anything from woven baskets to glass jars as your centerpiece base. Furthermore, adding in flowers, birds, and butterflies to your wedding decor will add energy and life. These four-inch white butterflies would certainly get the table conversation going. Elegant and seemingly understated, these natural rectangular rush baskets with handles could even be used as serving trays. Simply line them with colored tissue, and layer them with delicious baked goods.

Thank-you bags and wedding favor boxes, such as these peekaboo boxes, are a simple yet appreciated way to thank your guests for the heartfelt wedding wishes.

So get started! Paper Mart will help you create a beautiful, personalized day sure to fill up plenty of wedding keepsake albums.
