Some deets from the press release:
“There will be inspiration for brides, grooms and wedding parties, so if you’re planning a wedding you’ll be able to find pieces that work for your personality and budget including dresses, groomswear, stationery and serveware. Throughout the day there will be rolling DIY workshops, hosted by Parapluie Events, where you’ll be able to have a go at making a selection of wedding decorations from colour themed pom-poms to bride and groom pegs. Tickets are £5 and can be bought now. The Etsy Weddings Event is taking place at The Gallery Soho in London.”
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.)
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.
Glasgow craft cafe The Lifecraft will be LIVE SEWING A REPLICA OF KATE’S WEDDING DRESS AS SOON AS SHE’S SPOTTED ON FRIDAY.
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.
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?
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.
