Today’s couple, Emma and James, were lucky enough to hold their Tipi reception at Emma’s parents...
As you know I’m currently running a Boho Readers Survey, (one week left to enter to win £4,000 of prizes) so far with the responses I am getting back from you all, the general feedback is that you lot love LOVE DIY. I’m not talking shelving units and going to B&Q at the weekend, but DIY weddings, and the whole ethos of doing things yourself.
The whole crafting industry has taken a huge turnaround over the last year or two and DIY weddings are a massive trend! Brides more and more often are finding their hidden crafting talents, as well as their friends and families in a bid to save money and bring back that personal element to their wedding day.

As a wedding planner I’m finding brides creating invitations themselves, flower arranging, making favours, making wedding cakes, in fact whole cake tables! Making bunting, paper pom poms, escort cards, even their own wedding websites! And as a blogger I am getting more and more DIY weddings submitted to me, and more requests for DIY tutorials.
It seems Brides and grooms cannot get enough of getting out the craft glue and donning the glitter gun!

So today I wanted to open up the blog to you guys, and make it an open forum. I’d like you to share with me and other brides and grooms what elements of your wedding are DIY.
Maybe only a small element is DIY? maybe the whole thing is? maybe you want it to have that DIY look but you’re just not creative or artistic??………..I’d love to hear from you so please join in the discussion.
Also it’s a good chance to let me know of any DIY elements you would like to see on the blog, I’m going to be adding in lost of new features over the next few weeks so maybe DIY is a feature you would like to see on a regular basis? If so what sort of things would you like to see??
I’d also love to see any photos of your DIY projects, so if you have created anything that you are particularly proud of and would like to show it off on the bog then drop me an email [email protected] and it could be up on the blog for all to see!
So join in the discussion today, and let me know all your DIY stories.
