    Crafty Wedding Ideas

    I love the art of craft so it is no surprise that I have built my business around the concept of handmade designs.  For me that is where is all began.  I hand wrote my invitations for the first party I ever planned, my fifth birthday party, and it is one of my most memorable childhood moments.  While I am not suggesting you handwrite the invitations to your wedding I am recommending that you incorporate handmade details for your special day.  I believe one misconception is that a handmade wedding will look cheap or second hand or that everything has to be made by the bride. The recent resurgence of young, hip craftsmen and craftswomen has abolished this myth.  A bride can now take pride that they have incorporated elements in their wedding that were made by the hands of artisans that take pride and care in their work.  Designers are creating couture creations for the simple chic bride as well as the luxury bride.  Now for the crafty savvy bride I highly encourage you to dust off those craft skills you learned long ago and take on a few handmade DIY projects that you can incorporate into your wedding.  You will soon discover what you can do yourself and what you need to rely on others to make for you.  Stay tuned for future postings of projects that I have created for the DIY bride as well as crafters that focus on handmade wedding designs.  My recent finds include Holland Cox. Her handbags and handmade organization sets are perfect for bridesmaid gifts when you want to give something unique.  The alchemy collection is my favorite and I am sure any bridesmaid would love you for it!  If you are looking for a unique head piece in lieu of a traditional veil check out this silk organza and feather head piece designed and handmade by Ana Zannoni.  Don’t forget the flower girl!  I love this hairpin handmade by Pink and Pigtails it is sure to make her dazzle as she tosses flowers for your grand entrance.  Check out more great finds and design ideas in future posts.

      I like to perform on a glass surface or laminate surface since they are smooth and effortless to clean. Have the children draw out their Watch Tray shape on paper. The much more shiny and splendid gifts for wedding are, the a lot more eyeball grabbing are they.

    Amelia,
    Thanks for the shout-out on my organizer set! The alchemy fabric is one of my favorites too! :) I love to work with brides to make pretty things for their attendants, and I do custom work for bridal parties all the time. Thanks for mentioning me!
