DIY wedding place cards

Good DIYs are one of two things: either they’re so polished you can’t tell they were made by hand, or they’re so creative that they just *had* to be made by hand. Funny how that is, huh? No matter what effect you want your DIY wedding decor to have on guests, there’s something for every style: bright and bold, artful and romantic, and even as elegant as these gorgeous acrylic place cards by A Fabulous Fete. See all 10 wedding DIY projects below!
