Friday Fresh Photos: DIY Weddings

Before you confirm your suspicion that I simply do not have the creativity to think of a better-sounding blog title, lemme just tell you that yes, I am guilty of that 🙂 And since I don’t want to go through the trouble of creating yet another wedding niche blog that will surely go lifeless after 2-3 posts, I have decided to just post some of the freshest finds of me this week. After publishing my first ever wedding blog post, I am now a wedding blogger (shameless plug, yes!)

My favorites for the week are composed of DIY weddings! I can’t stop loving them. Aside from the fact that they make good budget controllers, do-it-yourself weddings are utterly unique. They inspire creativity and foster bonding time for the couple.

And of course, if you are to launch a DIY project for your own wedding, you can’t miss out on the wedding invitation and the save-the-date cards. I love how this one brings out so much of the “feel-good” and “our-theme” touch. I’m sure my designer friends can do better than this. But this one looks really suitable for couples who love to travel.

The following set of pictures would be the pre-nuptial shots. Both couples opt to select their own outfits for their respective shoots. The first one below is a farm-style wedding… so laid-back and country-themed.

This one would be 2 pinoy couples in Singapore. Their pre-nup theme has something to do with graffiti wall paintings. Also very laid-back, but with some splash of bold colors. I like this particular picture of them below.
