Excited about getting married but starting to get a little bit worried now that you have realised how much it costs to plan that wedding of your dreams? The good news is, you don’t have to spend a fortune. Now there are a few ways to cut costs on your big day, but one of the best ways to personalise your wedding AND save money is by doing DIY projects! We absolutely LOVE when brides infuse their own style and creativity into their wedding day. If you remember, it's how Forever Soles started!
Anything from wedding decor items or wedding invitations is fair game when it comes to DIY. Just be sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew, plan ahead! Here are a few DIY projects worth trying:
DIY Flower crowns
Flower crowns are a chic and cheery way to complete the perfect ensemble for a wedding, festival or any day in between! If you need a little bit of inspiration, a number of our Forever Soles Brides looked beautiful in them. Check them out here.
DIY Shoe embellishments
We know that choosing the perfect wedding shoes is a journey in itself! Don’t be afraid to add a personal touch. My wedding was in a rainforest and on a beach, so it was impossible to find shoes to suit the occasion. Long story short, I decided to buy a pair of espadrille wedges and embellish them. They turned out perfect and were super comfortable!
Wearing and throwing a garter at your wedding is a time honoured tradition. With just a few supplies you can find at your nearest craft store, you can easily create the garter you've always wanted at a fraction of the cost!

DIY Macrame Wedding bouquet wraps
A macrame floral wrap is perfect for the modern, boho, or vintage bride. The best part is that you only need to know one simple knot for this project, it’s just tied over and over.
Or you can buy ready made ones too! These gorgeous wrap is from TakeItBackToNew on Etsy.
