Wedding DIY Ideas

It's no surprise that summer, especially in Minnesota, is the most popular time for weddings. In fact you probably have a wedding invitation hanging on your refrigerator right now. As a guest at those weddings you may notice more personal touches. That’s because more couples are being inspired to DIY their big day. Our do-it-yourself expert says it's easier than you think. Owner of Upsy-Daisy in White Bear Lake stopped by with a few ideas.

  1. POSTCARDS  
  • Instead of the traditional guest book, make it more fun by asking guests to leave a note on a post card with:
    • a warm wish for the couple,
    • a date night/trip suggestion, or even
    • Advice for the couple .
  •  They can write on postcards and leave them in a vintage suitcase
  1. QUILT SQUARES (see example below)
  • This is a lovely way for the couple to remember all who attended their wedding for years to come.
  • Have guests sign quilt fabric squares (using fabric pens).
  • After the wedding, the quilts are sewn into a wedding quilt for the bride and groom.
  • Display this ide with an old sewing machine.

 

  1. ESCORT CARDS / CENTERPIECES
