Your wedding will be one of the most special days of your life but the costs can put a strain on your financials. With a little creativity and know how to can help reduce the cost of the big day and add a personal touch to your wedding day with some home made craft ideas.

It’s not as hard as you might have thought to create your own wedding veil. To start you’ll need to get hold of a piece of bridal illusion big enough for your desired length. You’ll also need a comb to attach it to your hair and a headpiece to cover the comb. Sew in a line of running stitches about an inch in from the end of the illusion and gather it tightly. Now just sew the veil to the comb and cover with a headpiece.

For a simple outdoor wedding you can try creating bouquets and floral arrangements with wild flowers and you can pick them yourself for free. Bouquets can be arranged in large clear vases, with a bow tied elegantly around.

Bows for the ends of the pews or rows make simple but tasteful wedding decorations. Wide velvet ribbons look good for autumn and winter while satin is more appropriate for spring and summer. You can try tying in some flat lace with the ribbons. Attach some silk flowers and pearl sprays to the centre of the bows with a hot glue gun.

For a unique wedding favour you can quite easily create a photo refrigerator magnet. You can cut a frame out of craft foam in one of the wedding themed colours and place over a photo of the guest. Just glue the pieces onto cardboard backing and place self-adhesive magnet tape on the back of the cardboard. Decorate the front of the frame with foil hearts or a monogram of the guest or the couple's last name.

Perhaps you'd like to try decorating your own cake. With a little practice and determination you’ll be surprised what you can achieve. Have a look at the craft section of department stores for pans and gadgets to help you create a cake to remember.

Preparing for a wedding can be expensive but by taking some time out to plan and prepare early you will have plenty of time to create your unique wedding crafts. Maybe creating wedding crafts will even relieve some of those wedding jitters. In any event, crafting your own wedding items is a way to have the ultimate personalised, beautiful, and less expensive wedding.
