Recession Proof DIY For Your Wedding Day…

with one comment

Save Your Money, Honey.  Get Creative!

Dry your tears and fears my dears.  Planning a wedding in the middle of a recession can be scary but it doesn’t have to be!  Get your “champagne” wedding on a “beer budget” with these creative ideas from the MJ Trim Blog!

Decorate old silverware with rhinestones, or fancy up your flutes with them as well!  You don’t really need an $800 pair of Mui Mui shoes for your big day.  Instead, pickup an affordable pair and add your own embellishments!  Looking to save on flowers or jewelry?  Learn how to make your own fabulous flowers out of fabric.  Don’t want your reception decor to be a bore?  Jazz it up with buttons or whatever other crafty thing you can think of.  The options are limitless, even if your budget isn’t.

The girly girls on Gossip Girl are always in style.  Instead of trying to hunt for that expensive hair accessory you saw Blair Waldorf wear in that one episode, why not just make your own?  I’m loving these simple, easy, crafty ideas to achieving the look for less:

See, it’s all good!  For more stylish DIY ideas for your day be sure to head over to the MJ Trim Blog and also check out Kristin’s wedding ideas.  You can also find instructions there on how to make all of these projects shown above, including how to make a kick butt wedding veil.  If you need to find any of the products used, get shopping at their store, M&J Trimming.  Happy planning!!
