As it turns out, there are loads of great things that the clever maker can do to spice up that most special of days. You and your family can create some wonderful materials for your wedding, from hand-made invitations, personally-crafted wedding programs, and other paper goods. Food and other tasty treats are included along with DIY wedding favors.

If you are looking to support makers and crafters, you may want to consider seeking out real people to create the physical components of your wedding.
