So you've done the hard part. You snagged a life partner worth sticking around for the rest of your life. Congratulations! Unfortunately, as you've no doubt discovered by now, planning a wedding is just about as easy as herding cats, and it's infinitely more expensive. The good news is that DIY wedding hacks can help you save some cash, which you can turn around and spend on your honeymoon. (Come on. When is the next time you'll be a newlywed on vacation for weeks at a time?) The even better news is that DIY wedding planning has never been more fashionable than at this very moment, when Pinterest and nuptial blogs abound online, so plenty of ideas are just a few clicks away.
Even if you were one of those kids who spent their days dreaming of a future wedding, getting hitched comes with a huge amount of planning. On top of buying The Dress (if you're into that), you have to send out invitations, create a gift registry, keep your wedding party from getting at each other's throats, and somehow come up with an Instagram-worthy decoration scheme. Needless to say, the costs can add up quickly if you buy everything on your own.
That's where DIY tutorials come in. If you're looking to make your ceremony cheaper and more personal, check out the 11 wedding hacks below.
