Prompted by GetWed's article on homemade weddings, Do the Bride a Favor today offered their own ideas for brides seeking to do it themselves.
DIY styles are increasing in popularity for wedding planning. Here are a few suggestions for brides seeking to capture a more homemade flair for their wedding.
“Making a wedding feel truly homemade should really begin in the home,” Do the Bride a Favor stated.
Home is where the heart is. There is not anything as comfortable and familiar to the married couple as the bride or groom's own home. Choosing “home” for a wedding has a few advantages. First, it is more likely more convenient for the bride and guests, saving costs in buying transportation like expensive limos.
A large backyard is a beautiful place for the ceremony. The outdoors and beautiful natural setting promote a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere. A backyard can easily be transformed inexpensively by simply adding deck chairs and purchasing a gazebo. If the outdoors isn't the couple's style, clearing out a large living room or den can also have the same effect, without having to worry about problems like weather and bugs.
Now that the feel and comfort of home has been established, it's time to focus on the reception. And the receptions is all about the delicious food.
“If the bride feels comfortable with asking guests to contribute, why not?” Do the Bride Favor added. “Grandma can bring her famous homemade chocolate chip cookies that the bride loves. Or maybe the groom's uncle knows how to make a cake.”
Food can be one of the priciest areas in wedding preparation. Catering or buying a cake from a bakery can easily make the couple have to break the bank. But having all of the guests bring a dish to a type of wedding potluck allows the guests to contribute in a meaningful way while saving everyone a ton of money.
Thank the guests for attendance by gifting them with a fun wedding favor. Personalized wedding chocolates with a heart warming scene or a special quote on the wrapper is a small idea for the adults. Besides candy, children attending the wedding will appreciate something as little as vending machine toys or stickers.
