Creative centerpieces and table names add a nice touch to any wedding! At one of our recent weddings, the bride and groom named every table after action heros and spray painted action figures (some were even family relics!) gold and silver and placed them next to flowers and candles as part of the centerpiece. In this post we'll show you some easy and inexpensive centerpiece and table ideas to add a finishing touch to your wedding!

If you aren't familiar with this site, BuzzFeed features posts with recent viral content. The site is extremely user-friendly with it's use of memes, pictures, and videos to tell updates to recent pop-culture, sports and even political news. Users can spend hours on the site looking through endless posts, which is how we discovered BuzzFeed's numerous posts on DIY wedding.

The Knot is a perfect "do-all" website for a DIY bride. The site features interactive tools and resources for all aspects of planning a wedding.

Our favorite guide to DIY weddings is obvious- Pinterest! This is where we find the majority of our bridal inspiration for all facets of a wedding. Users are able to create different theme-based "Boards" with "Pins" (pictures) to collect their wedding ideas and projects. On our Pinterest page we have boards ranging from Save the Date ideas, to Decor designs to help our brides plan their weddings. Our favorite recent wedding post is a pin for gorgeous lighting from an outdoor wedding.
DIY Pinterest Wedding
At Without a Hitch, we cater to the hands-on bride and groom. From centerpieces, to signature cocktails, to guestbooks, this couple has meticulously planned every detail on their own.
We recently blogged about Pinterest and how it has served as a great way for the hands-on bride to find sources of inspiration for her wedding at a low cost. We’ll take you through some of our favorite DIY wedding pins below, and remember to follow our own Pinterest page:
Save the Date:
This inexpensive (and recyclable) Save the Date card made with a brown card and twine "ties the knot" when fully opened.
We love this bridesmaids photo with how the bride met each bridesmaid on chalkboards!
Hang old string lights you have stored in your attic against a wall for added ambiance and romance.
We love pastel bouquets with a touch of bling- it's easy to find sparkly pins or barrettes to add to the bouquet lying around your (or your mothers!) house.
Guests make their mark by stamping their thumbprint in the couple's guestbook.
Note from Sarah!
Life got too crazy to blog, but please enjoy these archives of some of our favorite past weddings.
