I wrote a blog post about a  few video tutorials
Fancy Script Letters here on my crafty blog.

I really think that with very little practice
you can make your own beautiful
place cards
or other table decorations for your wedding.

Here is my step by step process
to practising and perfecting your own
handwritten table decorations.

Step One
Have a quick goosey-gander at some cool fonts online and select one that you would like to replicate.

Step Two
Have a practice, playing with the angle, swirl, size and style of fonts.
You will quickly find a font that you love recreating.

Step Three
Just start!
A lot of what holds us back when we create (DIY projects)
is that we compare our work to a perfect examples.
Banish this mentality and just start creating your beautiful work.
Use a pencil if this gives you more confidence 🙂

Step Four
Give yourself ample time to make your place cards
ensuring that you have time and resources to make some last minute copies.

After a bit of practice,  these only took me  5 minutes each

You know that there will be at a couple of guests who RSVP
after you have finished all the others!

For those of you who just can’t stand the thought of doing this much DIY,

I’m a bit of a Pinterest addict.

I guess you can’t be a bride or be involved in the Wedding Industry
and not be totally in love with Pinterest.

It’s AWESOME!!!

My current little dabble into the wonderful world that is Pinterest,
brought into the divine and imaginative world of Bridal Bouquets.

There is so much variety and colour and originality.
Succulents, fruit, broaches, herbs, vines, vegetables and so much more.

.

Here is an example of just four amazing Pinterest Boards highlighting Bridal Bouquets.

1.  Pretty Wedding Bouquets by Coast To Country Weddings
2.  Wedding Bouquets by The Knot
3.  Bouquets by Janet Siemsen
4.  Bouquets by Julianne Smith

.

And here is my own meagre board.
I have to admit, I’m pretty fussy about what I ‘pin’ onto it.

All my ‘pins’ are of bouquets
that I would be happy to carry as I walk down the aisle.

I came across this really fantastic article written by photographer Corey Ann,
discussing the etiquette for an
“Unplugged Wedding”

I discovered the article while checking out
a local photographer on FB
Amare Images.

A seriously awesome idea
in this new age of instant access to images
via phone cameras and social media.

Here’s the message that was shared with guests,
that prompted Corey Ann’s article.

The request from the Bride and Groom

The request from the Bride and Groom

.

The article basically argues that guests who take photos throughout
the wedding ceremony and reception,
are in fact hampering the professional photographer
and in turn ‘ruining’ the shots for the Bride & Groom.

.

I hope you got a good 'shot' mate!

So what do you think?

Would you do this at your own wedding?

Can you sympathise with the photographer
trying to get the best possible images
for the Bride & Groom?
