Overview

With Handmade Wedding Crafts, you can create beautiful items for a unique wedding day at a fraction of the cost of buying new, often in a far more environmentally-friendly way, and all with a vintage flair. Betty Bee's 35 step-by-step projects show you how to make your bouquet, table centers, invitations, favors, and more. Each chapter covers a different theme, so you can stick to one or mix and match. Incorporate some 1920s chic into your wedding with Jazz Baby Bride with a feather boa fascinator and vintage brooch bouquet. Head to the Fabulous Fifties chapter for a vintage plate cake stand, outdoor standard lamps, and bundles of bunting for postwar-inspired prettiness. If you'd like shabby chic style with a nostalgic twist, try French Fancies, with a birdcage wedding card mail box, Versailles-inspired teacup chandelier, and perfect lace parasol. Finally, discover ideas that are a little quirkier in Modern Retro—from felt flower table decorations to a distressed crate flower holder. Whether you are planning an intimate ceremony or a celebration for hundreds of guests, Handmade Wedding Crafts is packed with original ideas that you will love to make.
• 35 handmade wedding decorations, accessories, favors, and more.
