Sarai of Sweet Sassafras emailed me last week with pictures of her fabulous, handmade wedding, and I just had to share! I won’t gush too much, but this girl is now my craft-idol!! She made everything from her dress and hat, to arranging the flowers. Proof that you CAN have an amazing, handmade affair, and live to tell the tale! You can find more images and information on her site and on flickr.
Hi! I was recently married, and wanted to say thank you for all the
wonderful inspiration your blog provided in the last few months of
wedding planning. Our wedding was amazing, thanks in part to
inspiration from blogs like yours.
We had a very personal wedding, with lots of participation from our
friends and a whole lot of hand crafted details. A friend officiated,
another friend made the desserts, another did the sound and video, and
lots of people helped us set up and decorate. I made my own dress and
hat (we asked all the guests to wear hats), the invitations, the table
runners, the table numbers, the place cards, and arranged all the
flowers. It was an intense amount of crafting, but the final result
was so meaningful. I wouldn’t have done it any other way. Oh, and we
had a photobooth, which I highly recommend!
