Behind the Scenes – Step-by-Step Pictorial Guide No. 1



Welcome DIY Wedding Readers!

Follow along for a pictorial behind-the-scenes peek into the layering of our featured entrance.

Hints as you prepare for your big day:

If possible stage your entrance several days in advance.

Take plenty of props with you and then edit, edit and edit again on site until you achieve the perfect balance.

Set your camera and snap a final shot.

AND as you pack up the winning props, as you remove each item, snap another picture. You now will have your own tutorial for your Mom’s best friend, your aunt, your cousin or the event site personnel to recreate your entrance when it counts.


Here’s a peek into the building of this entrance:
