Publishers Weekly
Cochran (DIYBride.com) provides an idea trove that will inspire the nuptial process of the budget-conscious. Projects are mostly favors, invites, ring holders and a few of the unexpected, such as making your own wedding rings with precious metal clays. She holds the crafter's hand through the process of producing cigar-box welcome packages, teacup centerpieces and paper parasols, with detailed lists of supplies and directions, tips and hints, and an itemized price breakdown – with a dollop of humor hot-glued on the side. Eight wedding themes are presented, with five projects for each, enhancing any occasion calling for extra flair and less expense. And, if fairy-tale flower girl costumes or chicken-wire seating holders aren't your thing, inspiration can be mixed and matched. And of course, that critical element – an estimate of just how many bridesmaids, moms and aunts will be required for crafty assistance – completes this wicker basket of ideas that will enliven the celebration of marriage – or just any good party.

Cochran ("The DIY Bride Crafty Countdown") presents a new collection of projects to add a touch of handmade to weddings. Each project has an estimated time for creation, a full price breakdown, and a comparison with the cost of similar commercially or professionally made articles, allowing couples to decide whether the time investment for the project is worthwhile. The projects are organized by wedding style, including modern, urban, fairy tale, exotic, and country, but Cochran frequently provides style-modification suggestions. Bridal craft books are perpetually popular, and this is a nice, accessible collection for readers looking to add flair to their special day." —Library Journal"
