Swarovski Crystals DIY Wedding Ideas for Brides on a Budget

Our Swarovski crystals are popular with everyone from art students to young designers, nail art fanatics, hip grannies, and even brides. Weddings are getting more and more expensive these days, and many brides are looking for corners they can cut and DIY projects they can integrate into their weddings. As you can buy in bulk and separately, and we have the largest Swarovski range online, we are the perfect place for brides on a budget. Here are some suggestions for your DIY wedding ideas.

If there’s one thing that’s in this season, it’s glittery, bejewelled shoes. And if there’s one time and place you can go all out and look like the models on the runway, it’s your wedding day. If you have a creative streak and a pair of shoes you want to give the shimmery treatment to, look to our hotfix and no hotfix crystals to adorn your feet. It is recommended you only use our hotfix Swarovski crystals for fabric shoes. For leather and other materials, please use non hotfix, as the heat-activated glue of the hotfix crystals may damage the shoes. Both are easily attached and come in a range of sizes, shapes and colours. For white, ivory, or cream shoes, we would recommend Pure Crystal, Crystal AB, Ivory Cream, Crystal Light Chrome, or Crystal Moonlight for subtle shimmery splendour. Tip: it’s a good idea to buy more than you need and practise on an old pair first.

Of course, you may be understandably against the idea of getting creative on your shoes, especially if they cost a pretty penny. We also offer a bespoke design servicedirectly on our website. Simply fill out our form with your request with as much detail as possible – or ask for suggestions if you are unsure what you would like – and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. Please note this service can take 2-6 weeks depending on the request, so allow plenty of time.

For a little extra sparkle in your bouquets and flower arrangements, we have a host of beautiful Swarovski flower pins. Our standalone Swarovski pins come separately and in packs of 12, in shapes such as sweet heart, lemon, crystal square, and crystal round. Our Swarovski crystal pins petite are sold individually; these are a delicate 10mm crystal in a casing of gold, rose gold, silver, gunmetal, and stainless steel.

Lastly, don’t forget to check out our bridal accessories kits. These are for earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. This is a jewellery kit, so the pieces are to be made yourself, but with our clear, photographic instructions, this is simple and straightforward.

If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via phone, email, or online chat.
