DIY Personal Touches

Searching for ways to make your wedding unique to you and your other half? Try creating DIY (Do-It-Yourself) personal touches to add to your special day! We have shared some DIY touches from our very own Soirée Weddings & Events brides below:

Our first featured bride made escort cards with vintage World’s Fair playing cards. She also created her table numbers by using her left over invitations and number templates!



Cristina G Photography shot the lovely photos of these DIY touches.

This fall-inspired bride spray painted mini pumpkins gold and added them to her guest’s place settings. At the end of the evening, her guests were able to take them home as a keepsake.


Victoria Sprung photography snapped photos of these metallic goodies!

Our next bride hand made these lovely soy wax candle favors for the guests at her wedding. She also added a special note thanking them for being a part of her special day!



Samantha Simmons photographed these enchanting candles.

This sweet-toothed bride baked all of her grandma’s cookie recipes with her mom. They spent the Thursday before the wedding baking together. When the wedding day arrived, we had big cookie jars out on the sweets table labeling each flavor!

unnamed Cristina G Photography was also the photographer of this delicious dessert table!

This bride’s dad hand made pottery vases for her center pieces – how sweet! Each one was unique and one of a kind. The guests were encouraged to take one home as a gift at the end of the celebration. All of the vases were stamped with her dad’s emblem and the wedding date.



Becky Hill Photography captured the photos of these beautiful center pieces.

We hope you have gained some inspiration from these creative brides!
