Whether you want to save money or just like flaunting your artistic abilities, getting crafty for your wedding is a great idea. While we don’t recommend doing everything yourself, there are plenty of projects you (and perhaps even your groom) can tackle.
When it comes to the big day, it’s all about the photo ops—and what makes for a better shot than a beautiful backdrop? For a low cost, high impact option, consider DIY-ing your ceremony installation.
Thanks to these step-by-step tutorials, creating the custom wedding backdrop of your dreams has never been more do-able.
