It’s easy to get caught up in the details of your big day. From the color scheme to the table decorations, there are endless specifics to consider. Don’t let the little things distract you from the joy of this short segment of your life. Instead, opt for simple wedding decorations so you can soak in the beauty of every moment.
Simple Wedding Decorations: The DIY craze.

There’s something so romantic about homemade decorations. Just imagine the memories you and your bridesmaids would make as you assembled all of your table centerpieces! Unfortunately, this isn’t always a realistic dream. The months leading up to your big day are extremely busy. Not to mention, a lot of the handmade décor can cost more than buying it pre-made! We understand why DIY decorations are so popular, but sometimes it’s best to choose simple tasks that won’t create unneeded stress and let the professionals take care of the rest. You’re still an amazing, talented bride if you avoid a few Pinterest projects—I promise.
The perfect DIY project for the busy bride.
If you’re honest with yourself, you may not have a ton of time to spend hand-making every decoration. This doesn’t mean that you have to give up your DIY dream! Choose a simple project with big impact and let your wedding planner handle the rest of the details.

Remember that less is more.
Sometimes over-crafting your big day décor can look unprofessional and tacky. Instead of making everything, choose a few tasks to pour your love into and let the rest of the decorations come from the store. This will keep your wedding space looking absolutely gorgeous (and less like a Pinterest board
that came to life). Don’t add unneeded stress with excessive DIY projects
. Choose a few details to add your special touch to, and let simple wedding decorations showcase your love story. What DIY crafts do you love? Let us know in the comment section!
