43 DIY Wedding Projects For The Budget Bride

Staying within your wedding budget is hard. As a newlywed, I can’t count how many times we had to do some “adjusting” to our wedding spending so we wouldn’t completely destroy our agreed-upon wedding budget. After some long chats and compromises, I can proudly say, we succeeded.

The main way that we cut costs was to take on some DIY wedding projects. If you’ve got the right supplies, time and willingness to work, you can truly amaze yourself… and your guests. Below are 43 DIY wedding projects that might just inspire you to add some handmade love to your special day.

    It’s flattering for everyone, can match almost any dress style and silhouette, and is low
