A new survey has revealed more than three-quarters of UK weddings feature DIY details made by the happy couple.
Of 2,113 British newlyweds quizzed, only 19% said there were no DIY aspects to their wedding day.
The survey, conducted by www.HelloParty.com, found favours were the most popular items to be handmade for a wedding, with 41% of the vote, followed by invitations (38%).
Almost a quarter (24%) of the couples quizzed revealed they had made their own wedding cake, whilst 21% made their own venue decorations. Just under a fifth (19%) of those quizzed got a friend or family member to handle the photography, whilst 18% said they took charge of their own wedding flowers.
Less popular items to DIY included the catering (15%), order of service prints (14%), guest book (13%) and drinks (11%).
It didn't end there though: 9% of the people surveyed also revealed they had made or amended a wedding dress.
Over three-quarters (78%) of the people questioned said their motivations for DIY details was 'to keep costs down', with 67% adding they wanted to add a 'personal touch' to their celebration.
