Strangely as soon as an engagement ring is produced even the most ardent crafters often seem to take leave of their senses and become like bridal robots. Ordering overpriced stationary, taking out second mortgages for flowers, and generally forgetting how their crafting skills are such an asset when preparing for something as costly as a wedding.
|With a little thought your wedding can be beautiful and unque|
Making things for your big day will not only save you money but it guarantees that in a sea of bridal uniformity your big day will be totally unique.Now no one is suggesting you drive yourself into an early grave attempting to create every aspect of a wedding yourself, that would be madness but consider a few of these simple ideas which take no time at all to make and will ensure your craft stamp goes through your wedding like a stick of rock:
|Handmade props can add homemade fun to your big day|
- Hair fascinators. A glue gun, hair comb, a few feathers and you can create beautiful hair adornments for your bridesmaids and flower girls in a few hours. Get them around and make a bridal craft party. Throw in some cocktails and it could even become a mini hen celebration.

- Cakestand displays. Using cake stands as table centres looks absolutely fabulous and other than sourcing the old plates is as simple as drilling a few holes.
- Candles make great wedding favours and can be used to add twinkle to your wedding reception. Fill china cups or make floating candles using soap moulds and then dot them around in water filled glass bowls.
