Hello New Feature: the Monday Makerie! (wedding Diy)

By Claire

Happy Monday everyone! Hopefully you’ve got a little spring sunshine where you are, but if not perhaps I can add a little cheer to your day. It’s time for something a little new and different (for me!), and in tune with what the focus of the English Wedding blog, this is all about creativity and gorgeous weddings.

Introducing the Monday Makerie on English Wedding

The Monday Makerie is all about making things. It’s for brides and grooms who want to have fun and perhaps save a little money too – but it’s more about fun than finances. The Monday Makerie is a new weekly feature on wedding crafts and ideas, where I’ll show you my favourite things from around the web each week – all to inspire your wedding diy projects.

If you haven’t tried making anything for your wedding yet, don’t be scared to have a go. Crafting is fun – and I’ll try and include links to ideas for all levels of craftiness in this slot. Trust me… as a calligrapher I spend many a happy evening having gold-leafed my glasses and painted my elbows purple by accident. It’s brilliant!

I love the wedding table names from this wedding on photographer Jonny Draper’s blog – the glitter writing is quirky and different. This would work with a glue pen (from zig markers) or glitter glues (but I’d try glue, then glitter sprinkled on top for better coverage).

  • Go retro and colourful with these fantastic swirly lollies from NOTHS – add labels for combined favours and place settings! – (new NOTHS catalogue arrived on Friday… love it!!!
  • More from Not On The High Street… I have one of these gorgeous rose garlands and I don’t know what to do with it… ideas, anyone?

Wedding Save The Date badges from Twenty Seven Stationery
Twenty-Seven have designed these lovely little Save the Date badges I had to share with you – how cute?!!! I love how they’re presented too – the ribbon and card set makes them even more special.
