Paper circle fans, or pinwheels as they are sometimes called, are massively popular in weddings at the moment. En mass they are a great way of filling a space with colour for not much money. On average you can buy these fans for £1-£2 each but you can make them for much less! I made about 60 paper pinwheels and it didn’t cost more than £10 for the lot. They’re super easy to make (and quite addictive too!) – you can even make them while watching TV which is a win for me.

More and more venues are insisting n bio-degradable confetti these days which, while great for the environment, can leave a big dent in your budget. A quick online search and, on average, it’s costing £1.10 per guest. Now that doesn’t sound like much but when you multiply it by 60 it’s another expense you don’t need when you could just as easily do it yourself.
All hail the rise of the cake topper! Long gone are the days where cake toppers consisted of a dodgy model of a generic bride and groom. Now wedding cakes are featuring some incredible creations on their top layers from custom made figurines to spray painted dinosaurs (and everything else in between!) I love a garland and a tassel garland ticks about every single box for me! The beauty of this DIY is it is completely customizable – from the colour scheme to the size of the tassels – so it’s guaranteed to fit in whatever your theme. And they couldn’t be more simple to make. They’re so easy you might get a bit carried away…
