When was the last time you shared one of your drawings with your friends? If you’re the kind of person who can barely manage a stickman drawing on Pictionary, it’s likely that you’re not one for DIY projects. It doesn’t mean that you can’t appreciate the personal touch that DIY skills bring to any project, but you don’t feel confident enough to make it happen. Admittedly, if you’re struggling to keep your writing readable on a Christmas card, it’s likely that you’ll be stressed out of your mind if you want to maintain a DIY involvement in your wedding. But don’t worry if you can’t DIY to save your life. There are still little tricks to make it happen during your hen do and wedding day. You may not be Michelangelo, but you can certainly keep things personal with a crafty hand.
Simple and easy hen party ideas
If you’re trying to keep it personal and manageable, the best thing you can do for your hen party is to plan it in the comfort of your home. For a start, there’s a non-negligible advantage: you’ll be saving money, and that’s precisely what matters when you’re planning a wedding. More importantly, you can get comfortable DIY activities in place to keep yourself and your guests entertained. A nail and pamper evening is precisely what you need to take your mind of the planning worries. There’s nothing like a good nail polish bar to spend a lovely girlie evening. If your hen-do party is planned for spring or summer, you could choose to organise a picnic afternoon in your backyard. It’s impossible to ruin a sandwich prep, and you’ll love the idea of a day outside with your gang.
Make your special day more personal
Admittedly, hen-do parties are only one part of your wedding preps. If you want to keep the DIY feel all the way through, you’ll need to think of making the most of your invitations. If you fancy something romantic, there’s nothing like receiving lace wedding invites. You can order them in a pre-printed kit for you to assemble before sending, which means that you can still proudly claim that you did it yourself. If you prefer to keep a modern edge, why not plan a video invite? Digital wedding invitations can be personal too if they’re prepared carefully. Besides, you can be sure that nobody is going to forget the date!
Cute and personal wedding favours
Last, but not least, you may want to think of personal gifts to thank your guests. Wedding favours are a tradition in the UK. But, thankfully, there’s no need to break the bank to make it work. You could prepare your own wedding soundtrack to give to your guests at the end of the day. It’s a cute and personal way to say thank you that doesn’t require expert DIY skills. But it’s still something that you can be proud of doing yourself!
The bottom line is that you don’t need to be a professional crafter to create a personal ambience. From a cute nail polish party to easy to prepare invites, there are plenty of accessible, DIY-friendly alternatives.
