Handcrafted and Deeply Personal: Check Out This Bride’s Beautiful DIY Creations for Her Big Day!

Jed and Kim’s wedding was a delightful blend of personal touch and elegance that perfectly mirrored Kim’s creative spirit. She’s the force behind her own jewelry brand, Pulseras by Kim and Love Susie, alongside her sister. Embracing her love for DIY, Kim infused the celebration with handcrafted elements that were both unique and deeply personal.

I love DIY-ing, partly because I have a specific thing in mind that I want and couldn’t find a supplier to make it for me, and partly because I enjoy making things with my hands,” she shared. “We spend so much time typing away on our phones and laptops, ‘making’ virtual things, I find it so refreshing to create actual physical things for a change!”

Not only did she create the signs, ceremony giveaways, bridesmaid boxes, and table numbers herself, but she also made a video, an arch mirror sign, and a special pendant for her bouquet to honor her mom–plus a few more!

This hands-on approach extended to sharing the DIY process online, providing guests with a sneak peek into the creation of various wedding elements.

“It was so nice hearing them say “Oh I saw you making this signage, it looks so good in real life!” or “I was trying to see if the initial you stitched on your wedding shoes was still there” It just makes the wedding feel more crafted and personal since they got to be a part of the behind the scenes story of the making process,” she added.

Kim’s approach showcases how a wedding can be transformed into a crafted, personal narrative, filled with love and the joy of DIY. Get inspired through these photos by The Backyard Studios!

 "It’s definitely a plus for your wedding to be aesthetic and beautiful, but people will say what they want to say regardless of how expensive or “bongga” your decor may be because different people have different tastes and you can’t control that. Find your why, and concentrate on what truly matters in your union." - Bride Kim

 "A good rule of thumb would be to start earlier than when you think you’d need it because there will always be a bunch of last-minute things that you need to do afterward." - Bride Kim

"I also bought these big plastic crates to hold all of our DIYs and wedding elements like confetti and Instax cameras so that the turnover to the coordinator would be more seamless. I filled them up bit by bit so it wouldn’t get overwhelming. One bin for ceremony things and another for the reception." - Bride Kim

"Before the wedding I thought the best compliment we would ever receive would be: how amazing our decors or how exquisite our taste was with the elements we picked out, but turns out, the actual genuine feel-good compliments we still gush about today were about how the wedding felt very “us”. - Bride Kim

"My final piece of advice would just be for you to enjoy the journey.. this era when you and your fiancé are an engaged couple is so fleeting, savor it, relish your bridal ERA, and take it slow instead of just constantly wishing for the next stage of your life. You got this :)" - Bride Kim
