Editorial Reviews

R Rhodes
Finding that extra-special touch for your wedding among the commercialized schlock out there is no easy task. For party favors, wedding consultants suggest Jordan almonds. If you want fancy lingerie, your friends will bombard you with racy negligees that you ordinarily wouldn't be caught dead wearing. And if you're looking for a tasteful gift for your wedding attendants, chances are they will find the evening bag you bought them to be tacky.

Unique is the key word here. Beautiful Wedding Crafts, written by Heidi Tyline King and Nancy Worrell, has more than 50 projects for your entire wedding that even the craft-phobic can handle. One gift that is simple and very thoughtful is the Rosemary Topiary. King and Worrell's instructions seem simple enough. After bending a coat hanger into a heart shape (or any other shape, for that matter), stick the hanger into the center of a potted rosemary plant that is at least 12 inches tall. Then wrap the strands of rosemary around the topiary form. Voilà! You have created a topiary plant that comes straight from the heart.

Beautiful Wedding Crafts also includes presents to give yourself. One is the gift of money -- that is, money that will be saved when you make certain things yourself. Stylish gloves, as I am sure you have noticed in bridal boutiques, are often pricey, and the ornamental pearls and sequins often come right off. King and Worrell offer simple instructions for adorning the gloves yourself; all you need besides the gloves are a needle, thread, and lace appliqués or ribbon rosettes, depending on how you want your gloves to look. This project will save you at least $20.

There are also thoughtful crafts that you can make for your husband-to-be. Mounting board, map paper, drawing paper, ribbon, and a glue gun are all you need to create a travel journal that is perfect for documenting your honeymoon adventures. Or consider this quick project: In less than one hour, you can etch shapes of hearts or stars, patterns, or even your initials onto stemware champagne glasses that can be used when toasting your wedding in private. Easier than it sounds, this project requires little more than etching cream, paper with adhesive backing, and glasses.

Of course, there are more difficult, time-consuming projects in Beautiful Wedding Crafts, from pillows and pins to hope chests and honeymoon travel accessory sets. King and Worrell provide detailed instructions for each project, as well as lavish photographs to inspire and help you with these unique wedding keepsakes. An extra bonus in this book are the wedding tips on your honeymoon, choosing a photographer, and gift ideas that are scattered throughout the book. Whether you are looking to cut down on expensive wedding accessories or you just want to add a personal touch to your big day, Beautiful Wedding Crafts will be an inspirational and practical source of help.
