Bespoke Bride believes that every couple should have a unique and personalised wedding; one that truly represents the distinctive qualities of both the bride and groom as well as encapsulating them as a couple. But when you really think about it, that sentiment relates to everything in the lead up, not just the wedding day!
For those who have decided on a DIY wedding (whether it be one element or every aspect of your day) you have a great opportunity to bring together family and friends, by getting them involved in the creativity and hosting a “craft day”; whether it be labelled as a Bridal Shower, a Hens, or just an excuse to get together!
Not only will it be a fun day for the girls to gather together and get arty, but each person in attendance will actually be assisting in the creation of an aspect of your special day. Pretty amazing!
If you’re anything like the Bespoke Bride team you’ll already have multiple Pinterest boards and scrap books filled with magazine cut outs, all filled to the brim with crafty ideas that you would love to get around to, but haven’t as yet. Our suggestion is to pick one element of your wedding and/or one idea that sounds simple enough for you and your gals to try, and get to it! With your wedding just around the corner, there is no time like the present to give some of these ideas a try!
If you’re a little intimidated by the project then why not look at hiring a professional to assist you throughout the process (after all, it will ultimately be used for your wedding!) And don’t worry, in this case “hiring a professional” doesn’t equate to spending big bucks. We’ve found just a handful of the amazing workshops you can attend that will ensure you have a great day out and end up with some amazing items to use on your special day; Made all the more special by the fact that your loved ones helped create them!
