My husband and I recently celebrated our first anniversary, prompting me to reminisce by looking through our wedding day photographs. Among the wonderful pictures of family and friends and perfect moments, I was also reminded of how much DIY effort went into the event. The months leading up to our wedding were a whirlwind of finalizing details, so it was so nice to look back and see how it all came together. One of my favorite DIY projects were our table markers.
Crafting is a huge hobby of mine, so getting married last month was not only wonderful because I got to marry my best friend, but it also gave me license to craft and design all sorts of things for the past year, and it was awesome. Since our wedding, I’ve happily shifted gears back into home design mode, but looking back at our wedding pictures sort of makes me long for X-ACTO knives and ribbon.
Assembling my wedding favors was one of the easier ways to be a DIY bride and these went perfectly with the rest of my decor. The cellophane bags looked great in the candlelight at the guest tables and the ribbons and tags helped carry my navy, white and coral color theme. Plus, with a cost per favor around $3, they were pretty affordable. If you’d like to make these for your upcoming event, the instructions are below.
