Homemade weddings have become a growing trend in the last few years, offering various advantages to creative brides and grooms. Not only does this option allow you to reap considerable savings, it more importantly offers the opportunity to add a personal touch to some wedding essentials.
“Conceiving your own wedding is as exciting as it is gratifying,” says Sara Douglass, CEO of Stampin’ Up!, a scrapbooking and stamping company. “Creating your own invitations or some décor elements is much easier than most people think and spouses can feel like they are really getting involved for this important day.”
Far from being an option for only handy DIY lovers, homemade weddings can be created very easily, with the right tools and a bit of imagination. Wedding invitations are a favourite element. The Beautiful Ride stamping kit offers adorable drawings representing a new life for two. The choice in colour is vast thanks to the many different ink colours and stamping methods available.
To impress your guests, why not showcase the classic sugared almonds in a custom mini muslin bag? Identify the seating for each guest by tying baker’s twine around glasses or cutlery with the Tag a Bag accessory kit. The great variety of stamps at Stampin’ Up! provides options for all types of wedding themes, whether floral, coloured or classical.
To capture those special wedding moments, nothing beats a real photo album. With Project Life, it becomes simple to create your own album: all you have to do is slip your pictures in the pages and add the designed cards. The Memories in the Making card collection and accessory pack offer cards of different sizes, tags and ribbons to highlight the best moments of your most special event.
