My bridal party career began at the age of 6, as my aunt’s flower girl. I also played my oboe for a cousin’s walk down the aisle, did a reading at her sister’s, and was a bride myself three years ago. In a few short weeks, I’ll finally round out my wedding resume as a bridesmaid for my sister-in-law. I’m excited! My dress is cute, but nothing will compare to my 1993 flower girl attire…
Y’welcome. And yeah, natural blonde4life. Check the right foot – natural fidgeter4life.
DIY wedding (or garden party) tutorials anyone can do
So! There’s a new online course (totally convenient, affordable and can be done at your own pace) by Creativebug and one of my favorite bloggers, Lia Griffith. The 4-week course starts June 3, is just $9.95 and each week features a beautiful new video tutorial for how to make go-to DIY wedding staples.
Week 1 covers how to make a paper floral head wreath, which you can see at the top of this post. Week 2 helps you create a floral backdrop, perfect for a photobooth, ceremony or head table. You’ll learn to make mini topiaries week 3, and week 4 will cover making huge gilded letters. This is such a good collection of ideas that can be used in so many different ways for weddings or handmade parties.
As a DIY bride myself, I would have loved some hand holding on my own wedding. Understanding what’s truly doable on a budget and limited time frame is so hard, even for seasoned DIYers. There are definitely a few things I spent tons and tons of time making the hard way for my wedding. Lia Griffith’s course gives you the full how-to, so even if you’re a reluctant crafty chick, you’ll be able to make totally pro crafts for your big day.
Giveaway + 14-day access code for all!
First and foremost, every single one of you can access the course here, and you can ALL try the course for 14 days for free, using the promo code WEDDING. Also, Creativebug is offering all classes for just $9.95 for the month of June, so if you’ve been looking for an excuse to learn to knit or sew or develop a creative brand, now’s a great time.
