Oh what a wonderful wedding!

Doesn’t this photo make you swoon? It’s a promo for A Most Curious Wedding Fair, an event at Truman Brewery, London on 19-21 April. Can.not.wait.

(In case you didn’t know, I’m getting married and have BECOME THE KIND OF PERSON WHO HAS A WEDDING SCRAPBOOK. I’m absolutely loving every bit of planning the wedding with J. All recommendations for suppliers/designers/makers/People Who Do Stuff Related To Weddings welcome.)

Your crafty/vintage/DIY wedding needs these.

Vintage china, handmade bunting and all kinds of other paraphernalia at Frost and Pickles (because, sometimes, you just can’t be bothered to make your own FOUR MILLION METRES of bunting). That Frost is a good egg, so you can be sure they’ll do you well.

The Lifecraft are attempting something so incredible it will put all other Royal Wedding craft to shame.

Glasgow craft cafe The Lifecraft will be LIVE SEWING A REPLICA OF KATE’S WEDDING DRESS AS SOON AS SHE’S SPOTTED ON FRIDAY.

Amazing.

I’ve been assured they’ll be tweeting (@thelifecraft), updating their Facebook page and, potentially, streaming the whole making session on a webcam too.

Who wants to place bets on what time they finish?

Craft really doesn’t get better than this.

HANDMADE WEDDINGS ARE THE BEST KIND OF WEDDING.

So it’s lucky that this event is happening next month ..

‘As the capital prepares for a lavish Royal Wedding, Homemade London, the Marylebone craft salon, is hosting a unique wedding event for people who want to create an intimate wedding experience; celebrating individuality, creativity and elegance. During a day of masterclasses and craft workshops led by some of London’s leading creative talents – including a planner, photographer, stylist, florist and Homemade London’s team of designer-makers – customers will learn how to bring their ideas to life, incorporating spectacular personal details into every aspect of the big day while keeping costs under control.’

If I was getting hitched I’d totally go.

Actually, even though I’m not, I might go anyway. Is that weird?

Ooh wedding invites.

I designed my best friend Heather’s wedding invites, and had an illustration drawn by the most wonderful Little Doodles (in a cheeky skill swap).

She started sending them out earlier this week…

I’m rather happy with the way they turned out.
