Contrary to popular belief I really am a fan of DIY wedding projects. I have seen some truly beautiful and unique things that all you talented brides have made. Of course
I have also seen some absolutely laughably bad things. Do I even need to mention cheap silk flowers and floating candles?
So here is the deal: if you are going to create something fabulous and handmade for your wedding don’t take on more than you can handle either skill level or time wise. Commit to one of two amazing projects and give yourself the time to do it right.
To get you started go over to Abby’s blog Style Me Pretty and check out her DIY contest entries. WOW if that doesn’t get you inspired then nothing will.
To help you design your own projects and master the skills needed to make them check out DIY Bride and Wedding Crafter. DIY Bride even has a forum where you can get help from other crafting brides. What’s more, DIY Bride’s book just hit the bookstores this week. I can’t wait to check it out.
Since so many wedding day crafts have to do with paper in one way or another here is my favorite source for great/cool/different papers.
