Reduce The Wedding Cost With These Wedding Craft Ideas
Without doubt weddings are such a happy event but can get expensive in a hurry.
However with wedding crafts you can add a personal feel and keep expenditure under tight control. Here are a few ideas for wedding crafts to add twinkle and creativity to your wedding day.
It is not hard to create your own bridal veil. To create this bridal craft, you will need a length of bridal illusion in the required length. You will also need a comb to attach it to your hair. Sew large running stitches approximately one inch from the end of the illusion and gather it tightly. Then sew the veil to the comb. Alternatively, you can decorate a wide-brimmed straw hat with silk flowers, ribbon, and pearls.
It is also possible to personally craft the bouquet and other floral arrangements. For a simple outdoor wedding, you could consider wild flowers. They are free and have a delight all their own. Flowers can be arranged in large clear vases, with a bow in your chosen color elegantly tied around them. And the bouquets can be tied with a beautiful ribbon coordinating with the dresses.
Favors for the reception guests are especially appropriate wedding crafts. Fridge magnets are a simple yet well appreciated favor. A really nice idea is to make a magnetic picture frame and include a photograph of the wedding couple. You could cut a frame out of craft foam in one of the wedding colors, place over the photograph, and glue all onto a cardboard backing. Use self-adhesive magnet tape on the cardboard backing. Embellish the front of the frame with foil heart stickers and possibly a monogram of the couple’s married name.
Bows for the ends of the pews or rows make easy-peasy wedding crafts. Wide velvet ribbons are really nice for winter or fall nuptials, while satin is better suited for spring and summer nuptials. Twist some flat lace in with the ribbons. In the middle of the finished bow, secure some silk flowers and pearl sprays with a hot glue gun.
Or perhaps you’d like to try your hand at decorating your own wedding cake. Check the craft section of the department store for pans and gadgets that will help you bake and decorate a wedding cake to remember. Do remember, though, that decorating needs a steady hand. Make sure you practice practice practice before working onthe real wedding cake.
Preparing for a wedding can be very costly, but with wedding crafts, you can take some of the sting out.
You must prepare early, however, because it will take quite a while to create favors for everyone at the reception and all the other details you will want to take care of. Maybe making wedding crafts will even relieve some of those wedding anxieties.
In any case, crafting your own wedding items is a great approach to having a personal, lovely, and less expensive wedding celebration.
