Moving on to the reception, wow your guests with this sweet, fun, and unique DIY ideas.
This fun seating chart is a perfect DIY for your wedding. With the right supplies and a little bit of planning, you can make this in a single afternoon.
I would look at your local thrift shops for older frames, to cut on cost a bit, and then print out some of your favorite pictures of you and your significant other.
Then plan out the seating arrangement, and you have yourself a perfectly unique seating chart that will wow your guests.
DIY Table Numbers
To play off the DIY seating chart, these table numbers are so simple and easily executed.
By grabbing a few more gold frames (like these ones from the idea above) you can print out some simple table numbers and use them for your guests to easily find their seat.
Add an extra sweet touch to your reception with this DIY donut wall. Now, I am no carpenter, but this looks like a pretty simple DIY that even I could pull off.
With some wood, a few power tools, dowel rods, and a “hole” lot of donuts, you can pull off this surgery showstopper with a breeze.
DIY Glow Stick Bar
Get the party started with some fun dance floor accessories, like glowsticks! This is such a fun way to amp up your dance party and get your guests pumped to dance.
People can wear them as necklaces, bracelets, headbands, and glasses! Plus these are SO MUCH FUN in photos. I recently had a friend who go married and she offered guests glowsticks and her wedding reception photos turned out amazing.
There are so many fun effects that happen when glow sticks are being twirled around. They are colorful, fun, and totally bring the party to life.
More Fun Wedding DIY Ideas
I believe that it’s the little details that matter most when planning any type of event. Here are a few more detailed DIY Wedding Decor Ideas that you’ll love.
DIY Guest Book
This cute DIY photo guest book is such a great idea! I love how you can add your unique touch on this special memory.
By snapping a quick photo and adding a sweet message, you can have a book of memories that are so much more than words on a page.
Wedding favors are one of those things that can add up in the budget quickly. One way to cut on that cost is DIYing (in some cases).
Either way, these sweet s’mores favors are a great wedding DIY. Because there is no baking involved, it makes this process even easier.
With your basic s’mores supplies, marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate, then all you need is a small plastic box and some finishing twine to create this cute look.
This wedding exit idea has to be one of my most favorites of all time. I remember when I got married, I had such a hard time coming up with a cute exit idea.
You see, my venue would allow and loose material to be tossed at the exit, so no confetti, flower petals, or seeds. This proved to be very difficult when it came time to plan our exit.
I wish I would have seen these cute ribbon wands back then. They make such cute photos and there is no mess to worry about.
But adding some colorful ribbon to a stick, your guests can wave in excitement as you leave your reception.
I hope you find some great ideas for your big day, check out this totally DIY fabric wedding for more inspiration!
