“All the single ladies, all the single ladies, now put your hands up!“ Beyoncé wedding jokes aside, we’re busy cooking up some gettin’ hitched ideas that just may make all you single ladies out there start dropping hints. I’m engaged and in the midst of wedding planning myself, so when I got the opportunity to collaborate with one of HGTV’s stars on some wedding DIY videos for the site, I was already well-armed with many hours of bridal mag and Internet research. And let me tell you, these gorgeous, budget-friendly ideas are like your fantasy Pinterest board (or mine) come to life. Just take a look at my behind-the-scenes snapshots.
We’re talking easy table settings that will blow your guests away and wedding arches/chuppahs you can make yourself. Not to mention elegant wedding invitations, posh edible favors, luxe bridal accessories and more projects you can DIY for much less money than you’d spend through boutiques or vendors. If I wasn’t so far along in my planning already, I’d be grabbing my bridesmaids for some serious Crafternoon sessions.
And if you’re wondering who the mysterious HGTV personality behind all of this beauty might be, you’ll just have to check back in June when the videos hit the site. Until then, whet your appetite with some of our favorite wedding ideas from our friends at DIY Network.
