Planning a wedding is a lot of work. And it’s even more work if you are doing everything yourself. Our storage facilities in Brentwood will help give you some space.
In 2022, the average UK wedding cost £18,400. That is a lot of money so it is not surprising that more and more people are taking on a more hands-on approach when it comes to planning their wedding.
With many more couples deciding to go for the DIY approach and making their own decorations, invitations, seating charts and some people are even arranging their own bouquets. Doing your own decoration, invitations and flowers could save you up to £2000. Deciding to do it all yourself will be a lot of work and it will also require you to find a place to store it all.
Here we will offer you some advice on how to do it yourself and how our storage facilities in Brentwood will help.
DIY ideas for your big day
No matter what you have decided for your wedding colour or theme, you will be able to create your own decorations, invitations and so much more. This will not only save you a great deal of money but it will also make your wedding unique.
Create a Pinterest board and start pinning any ideas you like the look of and want to re-create.
Create a warm welcome
Create a warm welcome for your guests by creating a fun entrance display. This does not have to be anything majorly complicated. You can create decorations out of paper and can create a really fun festival vibe with just some colourful paper and a creative eye.
Or you can go for a more vintage, country vibe using flowers and a borrowed vintage bicycle.
There are many ways you can create an impact when your guests arrive. You just have to think about what’s right for your wedding.
Unique backdrop for photographs
You can easily create a unique backdrop by using fabric or some wallpaper.
This will be relatively cheap if you use offcuts from the fabric shop and you would only need one roll of wallpaper at the very most. Just don’t pick the super expensive kind!
You can also create a ‘step and repeat’ board by painting some MDF and then stencilling a custom monogram of your initials onto this. This is a fun backdrop for your guests to stop and take a photograph with as they arrive at your wedding.
Use an upcycled chest of drawers as your bar and collect jam jars and use them as glasses. Browse in second-hand shops for vintage-style rugs to create a unique aisle.
The ideas you come up with and decide on will be what works for your wedding but there are many different ways in which you could save some money.
