If you want to DIY for your wedding - this is the book! It conveniently has indexes for planning out your projects: Skill Level, Category, Time to Make, When to Start (prior to date), Group or Individual Project, and Budget/Cost of Making. There are different wedding themes with: Inspiration, Fonts to Use, Textures, Venues, Details, Colors, and How to Pull It All Together. You can review the themes to figure out what kind of feel you want for your personal wedding. I also found it useful at the ...more

Beautiful book, but, unfortunately, aimed towards those brides who are having a $15K wedding but who want to DIY because it's trendy.

Because we can totally all afford to customize cute clipboards for $5+ a pop (to hold each guest's menu at their place setting, of course). Or spend $3+ per favor just in pretty wrapping paper (favor price not included).

My other peeve with this was that they built these gorgeous "still lifes" to showcase the projects, but only showed how to make one small thing out

I have been somewhat disappointed in most bridal magazines, shows and what not because they only offer traditional, cookie cutter ideas and options. I was very pleased to find a book that offered such nice diy ideas for my upcoming wedding. I adored the differing themes that were offered, such as "girly romantic", "modern classic", etc. The projects were fresh and in some cases very applicable to our wedding.

There were some cute projects here but nothing that bowled me over and nothing that I think I will end up making. As someone who is avoiding using a theme, I also have some issue with that being such a focus of the book, but I realize I am in the minority when it comes to my view on such matters. I like the cracker favors on page 209 but don't have the patience to make the number I'd need. That's really the only project that caught my eye.

What I want to know is why would anyone want to use a tacky, homemade craft at their wedding, ESPECIALLY one that looks to be from the 60's, from a thrift store, or made by a ten year old?

If you can't make something elegant looking....why not just do without?

I'm not even going to make the obvious comment abut the author's name.

I really liked this one! The projects are cute, do-able, etc. Luckily, I have enough 'stash' on hand that the prices wouldn't be that outrageous for me! Yay for being a craft stasher :D In fact, there are a couple in here I may actually do!

I thought this was well-designed, well-photographed, and the instructions are pretty clear. I *really* like the Organic Minimal theme and its projects. A lot of these ideas can be repurposed for any ol' party, like a birthday or other celebration.

There are some great ideas here and not just for weddings.

The instructions are clear and concise. It also explains what tools you need to use, how much work/time you need spend on the projects and alternatives to your selected style as well.

Really good book.

Very well put together....some awesome crafts for non-wedding gift giving as well....and most themes could be put to use for a summer soiree, baby shower, or other non-wedding party as well a great set up for a simple wedding.

Finally, some original DIY crafts for weddings that are not juvenile, outdated, or just plain tacky!

Love this book!

I especially liked the boxes by each craft that told you how to adapt it to your style!

I don't really understand the point of these types of books, because there's this thing called the Internet. I would definitely suggest either 1) getting it from the library, or 2) look through the whole thing before you buy it.

Good projects, just not what fit for my best friend and her wedding.

I didn't find anything I absolutely loved but there were many cute suggestions for favors, invitations, instructions for silkscreening, calligraphy and more.
Shh I'm reading!

Some cute ideas nothing that I'd do for myself specifically. Loved that there was a link to websites for templates or patterns for the projects.

Lots of inspiration for a modern wedding--great, uncluttered photos and a clean layout. I appreciate the estimated time and budget and the suggested variations for each project.
I really enjoyed the book, and visually it's gorgeous, but I really struggled with the one project I tried (as did the two people I showed it to, to see what I was missing).
