Five DIY Wedding Ideas You LOVED!

The recession. The downturn. I don't mean to be a killjoy but it's tough out there and many of us are having to watch the pennies.

One upside of it though is that we've had to become a lot more resourceful and creative. Particularly when wedding planning which I believe is why DIY wedding ideas are always so popular.

DIY Weddings Make Your Wedding Unique

You save money by making something yourself and whilst you're busy stitching or glueing, you're not out spending money!

You also end up with a creation that is completely personal to you.

I've written quite a few posts on DIY weddings and so today I thought I'd do a round up of the ones which have been most popular. Don't forget, if you have a cute DIY idea you want to share with us, I'd love to take a look and maybe post it on Wedbits.
