The Perks of DIYs for Your Wedding Venue
A wedding has many different elements that all come together on the big day and make the event one to remember for a lifetime. One element that is important for setting the tone of the entire event is the decor. There are pros and cons to doing the decor yourself versus hiring someone to do it for you. Today, the Rocky Mount Event Center team explains some of the reasons DIY wedding decor can be a great option.
The biggest perk of creating your own wedding decorations is the overall cost savings. Weddings are expensive — between the wedding venue, the catering, the music, and the dress, you’re already spending quite a big chunk of change. Crafting and creating your own decor takes more time than getting already-made items but the cost savings have a huge impact. That’s not to say that you can’t supplement your decor with already-made pieces.
Create for the Space
Another benefit of making your own wedding decor is having the capabilities to customize it for your wedding venue. Not every wedding venue space has the same setup and layout, and some decorations will look good in certain venues but not in others. DIY decor allows you to design for the space you have. This can be extremely helpful with items like table centerpieces. Being in the wedding venue will help you see if the centerpiece will block your guests’ view of the festivities or if the decor takes up too much space on the tables. You will also see if certain decorations just won’t look as good in the space as they did in your imagination.
Make it Personal
Doing the wedding decorations yourself lets you put a personal touch on your decor! Your wedding is a celebration of you and your soon-to-be spouse, and you want that reflected in every part of your celebration. Making your own decorations provides ample opportunities to add a splash of personality in every element of your decor. From using pictures in the table decorations to making favors that reference important moments in your relationship, you have plenty of opportunities to make your decorations your own when you do them yourself.
Have Great Bonding Moments
Doing everything yourself can add extra stress to an already stressful situation. Yet, it can come with some great moments, too. Build a team of trusted friends and family around you to help turn your vision into reality. Take them with you when you visit the wedding venue to visualize how your decor will look. Plan craft nights where you all get together and put all the elements together while enjoying some good food and good friends. These will be memories you will look back on much more than if the decor was perfect at your wedding.
