We haven’t done any wedding posts on TBD yet, so why now, you might ask? Glad you’re paying attention! A couple reasons. First, as most of you know, my fiancé Steve and I run all our blogs together. Good thing, ’cause I could never get this much done without him! The word “fiance” implies a wedding in the future, right? Yep, you guessed it, we are finally planning our wedding! The second reason is a scoop you will hear first, right here in this post. We are considering adding one more blog to our little network! Coming (eventually, possibly) to a computer or mobile device near you, a DIY wedding blog with great ideas and inspiration for all brides and grooms with an itchy glue gun.  In the meantime, I’ve been spending a fair amount of time on Pinterest wedding boards. (Duh.) Being avid DIY’ers, and bloggers, you can imagine we have some pretty big plans for projects for our wedding! But this week, for all you last minute bride and grooms, or those of you who want to pin a project for later (like us!) we have some of my fav (so far!) DIY budget wedding decor projects! BTW… most of these projects are great for any type of party, which is exactly what a wedding is, right? So let’s get to it!

These custom monogram letters are  from ‘Uncommon Designs‘. This is from a wedding shower, but what a great detail this would make for the guest book table! This is as simple as it gets… A little craft paint and glitter, and some craft store letters… Done!



From ‘Project Wedding‘, photo by Matt Edge, this “Bar” sign made of wine corks is another projects with letters I love… Save up corks from your weekly dates during your engagement, then glue to cardboard or wood letters. Glue gun fun!



Learn how to make a giant flower backdrop from ‘Avanti Morocha’. This site is in Spanish, but with English subtitles. She even has a video! This is such a cute but elegant idea for decor, think of the spaces you could use these in!



Can you do this? Dry erase markers and a great thrift store mirror… You could use this for menus, cute quotes, facts about the bride and groom… Photo by Matthew Nigel.



Loving’ this DIY from ‘Green Wedding Shoes’. These DIY rope words are simple… glue and rope! Check out the post to see what they did with these letters and the bride and grooms chairs!

DIY Budget Wedding Decor Projects


From ‘Little Birdie Secrets’, learn how to paint a burlap and paper wedding banner… “Happily Ever After’!



‘Sarah with an H’ shows us how to make a hula hoop chandelier. We are all about lighting at our wedding, so for those on a budget, this is a stroke of genius! Watch those after Christmas sales for string lights.

NEW 292


Chelsea at ‘Two Twenty One’ always has a good budget project for us, and these thrifty hurricanes are no exception. Fall wedding, spring wedding… take your pick! Dollar store vases and candlestick… that’s it! Tip on using flowers in hurricanes filled with water… Use distilled water for no bubbles.



Find out how to make these DIY coffee filter roses from Kathy at ‘Up to Date Interiors’. Check out her post for all the blush colors she made as well, and how she dyed them!



I saved my fav for last… from ‘Ruffled’, created by Gianna of ‘Chic Celebrations‘, photo by Krista Mason. This DIY photo table runner is awesome. I love that it’s B&W, and what a great way to share the bride and grooms life with the guests!
