As much as i am a wedding blog-a-holic, there are some books out there that i definitely recommend and one or two that i don’t have yet but that i really covet.
Handmade Weddings is the ultimate DIY bride must-have. Most of the projects are for the seasoned DIY’er – perfect for someone who knows their way around a glue gun but there are plenty of projects that the bride and her gals can achieve on a Saturday morning wedding craft day. Order it from this local website.
Vintage Wedding Style is a book that i am super excited about – i ordered it a couple of weeks ago and it should be arriving in the next few days – i can’t wait to get my grubby paws on it! The Amazon reviews are really good and i know it will tick many boxes for many of you – i’ll share it with you the minute it arrives. In the meantime here are some images of the inspiration and DIY ideas that await.
The Style Me Pretty book is good but to be honest, from a visual perspective i would get more out of browsing their blog even though they don’t repeat weddings they’ve covered in the book. That said, there is some great advice about how to personalise your wedding and i think that is invaluable – this is something you can’t necessarily easily find in one place and in chronological order (as in from enagagement through the actual day) on the web. Order on Amazon here – i ordered mine as a Kindle version which saved me a fair amount of money.
If you like the ideas and style over on Martha Stewart Weddings then you’ll love Matthew Robbins’ Inspired Weddings which has page after page of elegant weddings and decor ideas. Matthew is a seasoned stylist for Martha Stewart and his book is a must for the sophisticate who is determined to have the most stylish wedding in town – you’ll find so many gorgeous ideas and many of them are DIY-able too. Kalahari has it for sale here.
