Even if you host your wedding at a professional venue, little homemade touches make the event unique. Completing these tasks with your spouse-to-be can help bring you closer before your big day. With that in mind, here are five fun DIY projects to do with your partner.

1. Custom Signage

You’ll need several signs for your wedding, so why not DIY? For example, you’ll need signage to direct your guests to parking and a schedule of events.

You can use various materials, from wooden clapboards to chalkboards. If your handwriting leaves a bit to be desired, consider materials like vinyl lettering that don’t require years of training to master, like wood-burning and carving can.

2. Glorious Garlands

You can use garlands to deck the arbor where you’ll exchange your vows or line the edges of your reception tables. Best of all, you can incorporate materials that suit nearly any theme. There are the traditional flowers and leaves, of course — or go with something like popcorn strings if your big day falls near the holidays.

3. Celebratory Centerpieces

Like garlands, you can use various materials to create centerpieces to accompany nearly any wedding theme. You might not even need to buy many supplies for this DIY idea. You can find much of what you need right in your backyard, courtesy of mother nature.

4. Fantastic Favors 

Are you and your partner budding Picassos? Why not delight your guests with a one-of-a-kind art piece in the form of a personal mini-canvas painting as a favor?

Please don’t stress if you and your beau have less artistically inclined natures. You can also go with crafty items like miniature candies in ribbon-wrapped jars or tiny succulent planters if you have green thumbs.

5. Awesome Arches

Are you ready to tackle a tougher DIY decor project? If you and your spouse-to-be plan on exchanging vows outdoors, why not construct an arch to host the ceremony? You can buy and decorate a prefabricated frame or hit your local hardware store to make the entire structure from scratch.
