It's Wedding Season & We Have Pinterest Boards to Prove It!
Wedding season seems to be a year 'round event now, but spring always brings out the bridal parties. Everything is in bloom and the photo ops are priceless in the spring. We agree here at fabric.com, and we have been putting together a great wedding package of eye candy, projects and recommendations for a beautiful wedding any time of the year.
Our great friends at Sew4Home have created a fantastic wedding series with us called A Rustic Wedding. They are featuring projects like chair covers, groomsmen's ties and bridesmaids clutches as well as tips on sewing with specialty fabrics. Check back with them every day for a new project. There is also a $200 gift certificate from fabric.com that Sew4Home will give away at the end of the wedding series.
A Traditional wedding features time honored rituals and practices like matching bridesmaids' dresses, long bridal veils and dresses with a train. We emphasized lace and satin and some terrific images of famous women on their wedding day or when they portrayed a bride on the silver screen.
The Modern wedding features clean lines and less traditional accessories. Veils are shortened or not worn at all, and boutonnieres can be anything from vegetables to flowers and feathers. Pops of color among the traditional white and ivory for the bride are also a hallmark.
The sky is the limit on a DIY wedding, or at least until the bride is exhausted and has run out of resources. Handmade and heartfelt are the hallmarks of this style of wedding which includes interesting interpretations of the traditional wedding cake and lots of styles of garlands to festoon the reception.
The Rustic wedding is usually an outdoor affair for both the ceremony and the reception. There can be aspects of a DIY wedding with garlands in the trees and seemingly fresh picked flowers decorate the tables.
I hope you enjoy our wedding series as much as we enjoyed putting it together!
