Although we'd all love to have a million pound wedding, the cold hard fact is we don't all have the funds. But don't be discouraged, blushing bride. A dream wedding can definitely be achieved on a budget. In fact, here are 21 cute DIY decor ideas that will help save you a ton on your big day.

When it comes to throwing the lavish wedding you've imagined ever since you were a little girl, you'll quickly find that every little thing adds up. Before you know it you'll be looking at a twenty thousand pound bill, and you're going to contemplate selling your soul to get the finest of fine china. But don't do it, girl. There aren't any refunds on that soul of yours.

Instead, spare your bank account and try opting for these very pocket-friendly DIY decor ideas for your wedding.

1. Mason Jar Aisle Decor

Mason jars are clearly having a moment and simply because they're awesome. Here they make for the perfect aisle decor. Just add some flowers and hang 'em on the chairs.

2. String Ball Centrepiece

Why spend loads of money on centrepieces when you can get down and dirty while making your own? It all starts with blowing up a balloon and wrapping several sets of thread or yarn around it. Then spray fabric stiffener on top. Once fully dry, pop the balloon.

3. Flip-flop Basket

Set up the basket in a corner in the reception hall and watch as magic happens.

4. Rustic Flower Bouquet

Add some fibre cloth to your impossibly vivid flowers, and just like that you'll have an autumn-perfect bouquet.
