Newlyweds Charlotte and Gavin Bell, both 28, from Dunfermline, Scotland decided to make DIY crisp wall for guests to munch on at their wedding reception.
It took less than 2 hours to build and paint this simple structure which is made from timber and chicken wire. The couple spent only £50($65) altogether on timber, chicken wire and pegs, and used spare navy blue paint leftover from decorating their home.
Charlotte shared the idea on social media and people across the country messaged her to rent the crisp wall for their own nuptials.
Charlotte said: “I’ve always been crisp-obsessed and everyone I know loves snacking, so the idea came about when Gavin’s sister suggested we should have a cart of crisps at the venue, instead of a candy cart.
“I wanted to put my own twist on it, so we put our heads together and had the idea to make a wall full of crisp packets for people to pick from.
“We went for a theme of retro crisps, so the most stressful part was trying to track down particular brands.
“I couldn’t find where to buy Tangy Toms, so we had Discos, Space Raiders, Wheat Crunchies and Twiglets, as well as some more general Walkers ones.
“Our guests loved the idea, it was hilarious because everyone just kept going back for more, even while they were dancing they were asking if they could go and get a bag of crisps.
“Everyone even went home in their taxis with a bag!”
Charlotte shopped around for classic brands and spent £25($30) in total on 200 bags. She posted a photo of it on Facebook after someone asked for ideas about options to evening food at weddings.
Charlotte added: “Gavin didn’t think it would be so popular and he now realizes it was an ingenious idea.
“I wasn’t expecting all the comments from people, and I’ve got some messages asking if people can buy or rent the frame.
“But I think I’m going to keep it for my 30th birthday and just keep using it at different milestone events!”
