A DIY wedding for a young bride and groom

Many young couples decide to get married shortly after graduating from college so they can embark upon their new professional lives together. Even though they may not have the funds to throw an elaborate affair, with the help of close friends and family they can put together an intimate ceremony that everyone will treasure for years to come.

The friends of the bride will be delighted to help plan the first wedding for their social circle and could assist with decorating during the bridal shower. Before going out for her last night on the town as a single woman, the bride-to-be can spend the day with her BFFs putting together party favors, decorations and organizing snacks for the reception. To hold the tokens of appreciation, the couple can use tuxedo and wedding gown favor boxes or, to truly live up to the DIY vibe, the ladies can fold together damask origami favor boxes. Inside, they can place a personalized wedding mini candy jar favor that guests of all ages can enjoy!

To give each attendee individual attention, the couple can place unique gifts in each box and a picture of the couple with the guest for them to take home as a keepsake. To label these distinct favors, they can add personalized designer labels on the outside. As only the closest family and friends will be invited to keep the guest count low, it will be easier to pay more attention to each invitee, increasing the intimacy of the event. After working on decorations, the young ladies can take their engaged friend out to their favorite weekend spot and dance the night away!
