We all want our wedding day to look so well put-together, that it's deemed as Pinterest-worthy. But how do you get that dream Pinterest-worthy wedding look on a budget? We've scoured our favourite mood-board-making site for ideas - and the answers. Because Pinterest isn't just for the perfect inspiration images - it's also for finding the how-to's to do it, too...

Make Your Own Confetti

If you want guests to only use natural confetti (many venues now even insist on it), then instead of forking out for expensive pre-made packs, opt for your own dried rose petals or get crafty with some cheap cutters and dried leaves.

Collecting Your Something Old

Hiring vintage style drinks glasses can be pricey, so if you've got some time before your wedding - start collecting! Mismatched looks lovely, so don't be afraid to find various sizes and shapes either at local boot fairs, charity shops, or on sites like ebay or shpock.

DIY Photo Booth Backdrops

If you want something a bit more special than a plain backing to your wedding days snaps, make your own! Our favourites include floral garlands (which add to the feel of the venue too), a ribbon curtain in your colour theme, or a macramé hanging - which gives a really bohemian feel, perfect for rustic style venues.

Keeping Kids Entertained

If you're inviting little ones to your big day, they might be the last thing you might be thinking of when it comes to table dressing. But with this pretty Pinterest hack, you can keep them entertained (less tantrums is only a good thing), as well as making your tables look lovely. Dedicate a children's table and fill individual jars with colouring pencils, sweets and games.

Budget Friendly Centerpieces
Who knew mason jars could look so good?! Team with pretty florals and candles for a beautifully set up centerpiece, that will look as impressive as any huge flower decoration. Choose clear with silver or gold tops for classic styling and add ribbon to suit your theme.

All In The Details
Ever wondered how those Pinterest weddings look so good? It's all in the styling. Take inspiration from Style Me Pretty and find some vintage trays to use with pretty much anything. These look stunning underneath invites and rings for the photo album and to serve your wedding cocktails {link} for Pinterest-worthy wedding pics.

The Best Wedding Cocktails - What To Serve On Your Big Day

One of the biggest things to consider on your wedding day, is the drinks. Wedding cocktails <i>always</i> go down a treat at weddings. Yes, you'll probably opt for champagne for the toast and wine on the table for feasting, but what about after the ceremony? And to kick off the reception? Whether you're having a small garden gathering or full-on party, we've found the best wedding cocktails - and their recipes- to inspire the drinks for your do.

Pimms O'clock
This British fave will go down well for any summer wedding, and you can get creative with your presentation, too. Go classy with classic gin glasses and edible flowers to finish or choose vintage style straws with your names on flags.

Gin & Elderflower Fizz
This is a lovely refreshing drink perfect for a summer wedding. And a nice alternative to straight up bubbles. And the best thing about it? This cooling fizz works as a non-alcoholic cocktail too. Just swap gin for fresh juice and fizz for sparkling soda.

Pimp Your Prosecco
If you're opting for Italian bubbles on your special day, why not let guests choose some extras to turn their flute into a cocktail of fun? Opt for fruit purees and flavoured syrups to create a kind of kir royal or Bellini. Then give guests a fruit topping option - berries or citrus slices look and taste best.

Mr & Mrs Martini
The best thing about martinis is they are completely customisable. Choose between vodka or gin as your base, then add your favourite ingredients. Maybe you love an expresso martini, or want to try something a bit more tailored to your day - like a gingerbread and chocolatini, great for winter weddings.

Kiss From A Rose
Want wedding cocktails that match your blush theme? Then pink drinks are the go-to for you. Just mix a few drops of pink food colouring into your clear cocktail - et voila! A pretty blush drink that your photographer won't want to miss.

Gin & Tonic With A Twist
Everyone loves a classic G&T, but why not up the flavour ante and opt for pairings like blood orange and rosemary infused gin instead? Guaranteed to get guests talking...

Frozen Margaritas
If you and your partner love some good quality tequila, then you've got to go for frozen margaritas. A classic wedding cocktail that tastes as good as it looks! Just make sure you've ordered the right style of glasses - so you don't get disappointed with the overall styling.

Create Your Own!
Not just for pizzas, making your own creation can be a fun way to get family members involved in the day. Even if you opt for a simple mixture (like a classic mojito combo), you can get creative with the wedding cocktail naming!

Egg Cup Apertifs
Looking for something totally unique? Then try this adorable egg cup apertif idea, ideal for straight after the ceremony.

Berry Nice
Fruity cocktails are always a sure fire hit, as long as they're not to sweet. So a simple pairing of quality vodka base with subtle berry flavours, topped up with fizz is a great option for your reception. Berries and flowers used as a garnish also look really impressive - and great for the photo album!
