The word millenial is often used as a derogatory comment these days, but like them or loathe them, millenials have brought a whole new element of creative flair to weddings.
More people are creating DIY weddings than ever before, and with everything ‘wedding’ related so expensive these days, why the hell not?!
The most common DIY wedding items to make are invitations, wedding favours and decorations.
With this new found love for creativity in weddings, naturally couples are putting their own personalities into their weddings a whole heap more often. I love this, I don’t know about you but a wedding without personality is a dull one in my book. Why not have a bit of creative flair in there? Not only are you more likely to save money, but you will have fun doing it.
Arts & Crafts activities like making invitations are actually really satisfying and therapeutic. Also you can make it into fun activities by getting some of your nearest and dearest involved to speed up the process.
If you want to go a step further. Okay, a huge step further. You could always think about creating your own bespoke wedding.
For the legal bit you have to go along with tradition for the most part as legal weddings can only happen in licensed venues. However, after the main ceremony, the worlds your oyster, you can effectively hold a wedding ‘party’ anywhere. So if planning your entire wedding DIY style appeals to you, start brainstorming and get stuck in. It’s a lot of fun.
Perhaps it’s not so bad being a millenial after all.
