After our wedding, I started to think about different ways to preserve some special pieces from the day, but I wasn’t sure where to begin. I’ve seen a lot of brides preserve their wedding bouquets, but I had a few different items I wanted to save together. After a little bit of thinking it hit me: a shadowbox would be perfect! Here’s how I made mine.
Are you into succulents and want them to last forever and ever and ever? I’ve got a DIY project for super easy felt succulents to make into a bouquet, as your centerpiece, and even as a headpiece! Once these felt succulents are made, you can attach them to almost anything for a super fun and rustic vibe. Shall we learn how to make them? Let’s go.
Karen and Sam’s wedding took place at Preservation Park in downtown Oakland, California — and it turns out this park is the perfect backdrop for creative couples who are infatuated with all things CUTE. Everything from the rainbow paper cranes to the happy-faced plushies decorating the reception spot is adorbz.
I’d seen bottle cap magnets on craft sites before and was interested in playing with craft resin so I put the two together and voila: nifty home crafted wedding favors! Once you have your random (but of course self-representing) bits and bobs to cast in resin –anything that fits in a bottle cap works great — have fun making these personalized bottle cap magnets.
This week it’s all about the excitement of wedding prep in our reader round-up. We have sci-fi-esque Save the Date video teasers, comic book invitations, wedding crafts, a cute hedgehog, and even the coolest wedding countdown calendar you’ve ever seen. Oh, and I show off some of my favorite wedding purchases that you’ve made recently. So let’s throw our hands (and paper hearts?) in the air and say “Yay for wedding planning!”…
I read an awesome article today from The Chronicle about a 22-Hour Piñata which I think we should all consider applying to our weddings. Sometimes it just is not worth an insane amount of work. Some projects do not deserve to be priorities. For some people, that means the whole damn wedding. Yes, you heard me.
