New Wedding DIY Projects!

by Jenny Bryde 20. October 2014 10:43

Every bride and groom wants their wedding to be a reflection of their personality and style.  Often this kind of stamp is not available in a brick and mortar store, but that doesn't mean we give up.  Today I'm featuring some easy to do DIY projects that any bride or groom can tackle while saving some money and putting some personality in their big day.  All of these could be incorporated into any wedding by switching up some materials and colors.  Check them out!

1.  Lace/doilie balls/light covers by UtterlyEngaged.com - Blow up balloons, use a spray adhesive or glue to attach doilies or pieces of lace, wait for glue to dry, and pop the balloons!

 

2. Rope Words by GreenWeddingShoes.com - Use glue to saturate pieces of twine or rope.  Form letters and let dry.  Voila!

 

3.  Guilded Leaf Place Cards by PolkaDotMade.com - Collect leaves, paint with desired color, use white out pen to write names.  

 

4. Gold Glitter Vase from Etsy.com seller Southern Gold Shop - Spray a spray adhesive to the enside of a glass jar.  Sprinkle glitter and roll around jar until coated on the inside.

Autumn Wedding Invitation Sets!

I cannot get over how amazing the colors of the fall folliage are this year!  Was it the extreme cold snap that we all suffered through last winter?  Maybe Mother Nature has decided to give us a little treat.  Not only are we seeing the colors out in nature, there are also a lot beautiful fall colors popping up in this season's wedding invitation sets.  Check out these picks from Etsy.com vendors!

Should We Bring Back Gloves?

by Jenny Bryde 5. October 2014 09:17

Looking at any wedding pic from the early days of photography through even the 1970s, it seemed a common thing that brides wore gloves.  A nod to current fashion trends of being appropriately dressed from head to toe perhaps?  Not sure, but somewhere in the 80s this trend sort of died, and now we rarely see bridal gloves.  I'm thinking there might be movement for a comeback though.  Check out these "natchomomma's" styles that are available for today's brides!

Bridal Crowns - Not Only for Pageants!

by Jenny Bryde 5. October 2014 08:44

Admittedly, I sometimes cringe when I see the same dang tiara sold at every bridal shop.  That doesn't mean I don't love crowns!  I love the princess, royalty, class act look, but I just feel like bridal crowns have gotten into a bit of a rut.  When I feel this way, I head over to Etsy.com where I can find hand made and unique items.  Love these crowns!

Bridal Crown Headband with Crystal Rhinestones 20's Style - $500

Keep Cosy with a Bridal Sweater or Wrap

by Jenny Bryde 4. October 2014 10:15

Have you stepped outside today?  It's definitely fall, horray!  I love the crisp clean air, but I could definitely tell the difference that the cooler air made on my breathing and comfort levels.  I started thinking about all the beautiful bridal gowns we have that we end up covering due to cooler temps, and in the end what I discovered is that bridal accessories have been va-va-vamped up as of recent times with absolutely stunning wraps, scarves, jackets, and shrugs all made to compliment your bridal gown.  I wish it was a special occasion every day so that we could wear these!  So pretty!
