The DIY Bride An Affair to Remember: 40 Fantastic Projects to Celebrate Your Unique Wedding Style by Khris Cochran
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Here's one for all my soon-to-be married or dreaming-of-getting-married reader buddies out there!
In 2010 I planned my very, very DIY Christmas wedding. I consider myself a more-than-average crafty person and I was on a small budget what with my future-hubby in med school.
The thing I enjoyed most about this book, is the fact that it is broken down into themes. These themes include: Sun & Sand, Fairy-Tale, Exotic Destinations, Winter Wonderland, A Touch of Country, Bright Lights-Big City, Into the Garden, and New Modern.
In my opinion, every great wedding, birthday, graduation, etc. party needs a theme.
Since my theme was Christmas/Winter this book would have given me some good ideas. It was surprisingly hard to find Christmas themed wedding ideas.
Overall, I'd say the Sun & Sand theme had the crafts that I liked best/would have used if I'd been married at the beach. The seashell boutonniere and invitations were cute. To me it's the book's best and strongest theme.
