Hi, loves! If you’re a DIY-loving bride (pros and amateurs welcome!), you’re in for a treat today! We’ve rounded up five stylish + easy DIY wedding ideas to try. We’ve found a floral monogram (pretty much one of the prettiest things we’ve seen in awhile!), a pom backdrop, an amazing marquee, and more. If easy DIY wedding ideas are what you crave, you’ve come to the right place… and, I must say, these finds are pretty darn inexpensive, too. Ready to begin? Let’s go!

Easy DIY Wedding Ideas

1. DIY Floral Monogram

On the DIY love scale, I easily rate this project a 9/10, as in, I’m going to make this for my home immediately. All you need are letter like these, floral foam, flowers of your choice, and a few easy-to-find supplies.

Hello, loves, and Happy Monday! We hope you had a great weekend. I (Emma here!) love Mondays in particular since we get to kick off a brand new week of handmade wedding inspiration and launch a new giveaway (details on that coming up next!) This weekend, I had the honor of signing copies of my new book in lovely Northville, Michigan at Next Chapter Bookstore and Bistro. I wanted to extend my gratitude to those who came out to visit me and purchase a copy. It was wonderful to see your smiling faces!

To kick off the brand new week, we’re talking about reusable wedding decorations. Instead of buying decorations to be thrown away after your wedding, consider reusable wedding decorations meant as keepsakes in your home. To show you what we mean – and provide plenty of inspiration! – we’ve compiled ten favorite new finds. Read on to see which decorations made the list + find how we recommend using ‘em. Enjoy!

Reusable Wedding Decorations

1. Bride + Groom Custom Illustration Print

Who wouldn’t love a custom illustration made in their image? This find is one of my favorite illustrations to date. At the wedding, display on an easel for guests to view upon entering the reception; after the big day, frame and display in your love nest. Illustrated with love by Barbara Szepesi Szűcs Illustrations
