A DIY wedding to envy is our real life bride Chelsea, who managed to create an original and inspiring location wedding.
Woolen garlands in grey, navy and ivory to decorate the gazebo, hundreds of hand cut purple, lavender and white hearts out of card attached to bamboo skewers for the aisle decoration are just a few of the personal and tasteful touches.
For any bride looking to do a DIY wedding, here are some wise words from our bride Chelsea “! Start early; take people up on it if they offer to help; be confident if you decide to do any DIY and be true to yourselves. Always do a practice run for your DIY projects and make sure you are comfortable with the project – you don’t want to commit to making 200 pompoms and then find out you aren’t too good at it. In terms of styling and ideas, we found Pinterest fantastic for keeping ideas together and accessible when you’re on the move (your decoration ideas, manicure styles, hair styles, showing the florist arrangements you like, etc). And finally, make sure that you two are happy with your decisions, and make them with your own best interests at heart – you don’t want to make it harder on yourselves so that it’s easier for someone else. It’s one of the most important days in your lives and you’re spending some pretty pennies putting on a party for your nearest and dearest – you owe it to yourself to have spectacular and heart-warming memories of the day! “
The team at Roz la Kelin loves this wedding for all its unique styling including the statement hairpiece (and of course fabulous gown choice of “Teona” from Roz la Kelin Diamond Collection). Keeping your wedding day personal is what its all about and Chelsea rocked that philosophy all the way.
