Happy Tuesday, lovelies! I don't often get many styled shoot submissions since they tend to be so luxurious and aspirational, but when this one came across my inbox I knew it would be a great fit for The Budget Savvy Bride! This vendor team put together an eclectic and sweet DIY Valentine's Wedding Inspiration shoot that features several different handmade and thrifted items, perfect for any couple on a budget with some DIY skills!
The handmade items in this shoot include centerpiece candle holders. The centerpieces are made from wine bottles that were spray-painted in different colors and then the candles were inserted and the wax was then melted with a heat gun. It created such a romantic effect, and is something that would be totally simple to DIY!
The frames were thrift finds and were painted to match the color scheme — this is another simple and inexpensive DIY project that any couple could take on, and customize to match their own wedding colors. The calligraphy sign was created by Michelle Collins of Calligraphy Cult with watercolors and a brush — with a little practice anyone could create their own wedding signage in this manner as well. The other items shown in the shoot such as the plates, glasses, and flatware were all thrifting finds!
Even the DIY photobooth backdrop could be easily recreated — just find a cute bedsheet or shower curtain to hang, and grab some Mylar Balloons to create the message of your choice. So cute and budget savvy, too!
With a little creativity and resourcefulness, you can put together a wedding day look that represents your unique style and taste. Hope this sweet inspiration has inspired you to think outside the box when it comes to your wedding decor and styling. Hope you've enjoyed this DIY Valentine's Wedding Inspiration!
