Making your own version of anything is great. It’s not only cheaper, but anything you make is completely customisable and you can make it as personalised as you like. Paying someone else to personalise their existing design for you can be costly, and doesn’t always come out as you envisioned. Not to mention the fact that you can look back at your wedding day, and your photos, and be forever proud of the beautiful things you created.
Here’s a handful of bridal accessories that you can create yourself, and make it truly your own!
1. DIY Garter
I absolutely adore this garter tutorial from Wedding Bee. It looks absolutely beautiful, but the step-by-step tutorial makes it so simple to create your own, customised garter. You could personalise this with your favourite coloured lace and ribbon, or even personalise it with the initials of you and your partner. Adorable!
2. DIY Veil
Making your own veil is probably something that has never even crossed your mind, but with these simple step-by-step instructions from Chica and Jo and Craft Stylish you really can’t go wrong. All of the things that would normally cost a lot extra (maybe sparkles or satin trim) you can do yourself for pence rather than pounds. Or maybe you just feel inspired to buy a basic veil and customise it yourself. Make it your own!
3. DIY Birdcage Veil
A birdcage veil is simple, unique, and screams classic beauty. Stand out from the crowd with your own birdcage veil using this wonderful tutorial from 100 Layer Cake!
4. DIY Fingerless Lace Gloves, or Cuffs
Learn how to make beautiful lace gloves, or cuffs, exactly to your own tastes using this great little tutorial from Hub Pages. Perfect for a vintage wedding.
I hope you enjoy making your own accessories! Happy crafting!
