For the ambitiously crafty engaged couples out there, there's no doubt you want to have a hand in decorating your wedding day. First thing's first, heed our warning: Don't wait until the last minute to try a craft you've never done before. Waiting until the 11th hour will only stress you out, and if you're crafting under a time crunch then you might not be as happy with the end result. Remember to put time aside for shopping for materials, set-up and clean-up in addition to the actual crafting time. A good way to cut time? Enlist your wedding party in the crafting by hosting a rosé, pizza and DIY night.

From aisle décor to backdrops, here are our favorite DIY decorations that you could definitely handle at home.
