Book review

I stumbled upon the book Instant Weddings, by Jennifer L. Shawne, and I have to highly recommend it to everyone here. It's geared toward those with 4 months or less to plan their wedding, but I found that the advice contained within it really applies to everyone across the board.

A few highlights:

In the first chapter she recommends that each member of the couple compile a seperate list of must haves, would like to haves, and absolutely do not want to haves, and that they then get together with their lists to figure out what are the truly important elements for their wedding.

In other chapters she recommends unique, often unthought of, places to get what's needed for the wedding.

A few of my favorite reception ideas she mentions are snow cones topped with vanilla vodka for a white/ winter themed wedding, and a picnic style reception, which we're now thinking of incorporating into our plans.

The book was published in 2004, and the list price is $14.95, but I found it at the Dollar Tree for a buck, so check there first. :)

Cross-posted like mad; sorry if you see this more than twice.

Are any of you getting married or know someone getting married? Or do you need some jewelry for a special occasion of another sort?

I made this necklace and earring set a while ago. But it has not sold. I would really like to get it to someone who could use it.

the photo is large, so I placed it under the cutCollapse )

Some new things

This post is long over-due as I finished the jewelry in September and the wedding that the necklaces were made for was in October.

I was commissioned by a bride to make four necklaces for her bridesmaids to wear in her wedding. I had previously made four bracelets for the same bride, which she had given to her bridesmaids when she asked them to stand with her at the wedding. The necklaces were made to go along with the bracelets and compliment them but not necessarily be matchy-matchy. Both bracelets and necklaces were made with real pearls or various shapes and sizes, garnet Swarovski crystals and crystal Swarovski crystals. They were made in various lengths to accommodate the wearers.

I was pleased with the necklaces (and bracelets) and I believe the bride was pleased as well. I can only hope that her bridesmaids liked and appreciated the jewelry. Hopefully they find many occassions in the future to wear it!

2 more pictures of the necklaces, plus one of the bracelets for good measureCollapse )

I have another wedding necklace and bracelet set that I have to edit the photos for to post soon. there's only one set left on my site for sale and I just marked down the price.

DIY invites

I still have no idea when the wedding will be, but I got some inspiration so I designed the invitations. I'd like some input on it, so please tell me if you notice anything I've missed.

Very crude mock-ups under hereCollapse )
