Ribbons are an inexpensive and colorful DIY supply that can transform simple wedding decor. Since ribbon comes in all widths, colors and even patterns, you can really adapt the material to fit whatever wedding day item you're decorating. Tip: use grosgrain and lace ribbon to add texture, and try satin ribbon for a smooth shiny feel. From handmade ribbon flower bouquets and flower girl wands to a knotted DIY photo booth backdrop, here are 16 of the most creative places we've seen brides DIY with ribbon!
