{Practical Planning} DIY Round Up - Lovely Projects for Your Wedding

DIY projects are an ESSENTIAL part of practical wedding planning for any couple. They help you save money, illuminate your crafty, thrifty side, fill your celebration with personal touches. From invitations and programs to favors and flowers, DIY is all about putting a little extra special love into the details.

So here is my DIY Round-Up - my favorites from around the web, picked just for you. I love these projects and I know you will too.

Plantable Flower Favors 
I found this post on Emmaline Bride but you can find the full tutorial HERE.

Super sweet and super easy project for creating plantable flowers. Bundle a few together for as an eco-conscious, earth friendly gift to your guests or combine with a handwritten craft tag for place holders. You will be surprised at how simple the project is; gather your maids and get yet craft on!

Wine Label Menus
I found this project over at The Wedding Chicks...LOVE them!

This is one of those projects that makes you say...DUH, why didn't think of that? It is fresh and clean and can do double duty as a floral centerpiece. Perfect for an outdoor or backyard wedding. I love just makes the whole world nicer.

I found this post on The Sweetest Occasion from Chelsea of lovely indeed! 

For you practical brides, here is a great NO fee or low fee idea for creating garland, perfect for decorating your reception or cocktail hour.  Make it your own with ribbon in your wedding colors, bits of hoarded fabric, yarn, anything artsy crafty that you need to get rid of in your house! Again, another great project to bring in the help.
