Sometimes the best way to do wedding decor is with your own two hands.

They said the popular DIY-style wedding was slowing down but we’re not convinced.With more brides than ever opting for a budget-friendly big day we’ve rounded up some of the best ways to save on your wedding decor and have some fun while you’re doing it. We suggest gathering together your bridal party if you’re going to give any of these creative ideas a go, or enlisting some of your close relatives to give you a hand. Doing it alone isn’t half as fun as it could be.

One big piece of advice we give to any bride about to embark on a DIY wedding is to give yourself enough time to complete the job. While these ideas seem fantastic for saving money when you start wedding planning, leaving them too late can lead to unneccessary stress before you walk down the aisle.

Here’s our favourite wedding decor DIYs to give your wedding that personal touch.
