Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Many contemporary couples reject the frippery of store-bought, cookie-cutter weddings in favor of special days that reflect their personalities and creativity. Emma Arendoski, the author of this book, remembers that when she went to stores searching for accessories in preparation for her own nuptials, she was disheartened by the offerings, only to be delighted soon thereafter by the originality and artistry of handmade pieces. That discovery became the inspiration for her Emmaline Bride blog and website, which in turn, serves as the launching pad for this rich gathering of hundreds of handcrafted items from stationery to do-it-yourself table decorations, bouquets, and reception party favors.

Library Journal
Wedding blogger Arendoski (emmalinebride.com) takes couples through the stages of planning a wedding featuring customized, handcrafted accents. The book serves more as a collection of ideas than a how-to guide, with information on customizing every aspect of the wedding, from the basic (invitations, flowers, favors) to things usually left to professionals (clothing, food, cake). VERDICT Wedding crafts are a consistently popular category, but DIY-minded couples may be disappointed by the lack of projects in this book.
