If you’ve been reading Bespoke Bride for a while you’ll remember that last year we went to the awesome Handmade Fair in London with Cricut to show off the amazing things these machines can do and how helpful they are when DIYing your wedding! (In case you missed it you can read about our time at the fair here!) Anyway…we’re super excited to say that we’re going to be teaming up with Cricut again this year and making a return at the fair in September! EEK! We met up with some of the team last week to plan the design of our stall and what Cricut creations we could dream up for the fair and it got us all excited so today I wanted to share you with you 12 of the wedding DIYs we’ve already made with the Cricut Explore in the past and how you can make them too!

ADD DOVE CLINICAL PROTECTION TO YOUR LIST OF WEDDING DAY ESSENTIALS

Written by , Posted in Fashion and Accessories, How To..., Sponsored Posts

As tomorrow marks one year since Mr T and I officially got engaged, I have found my mind wandering back to that amazing night on a beach in Mexico when he shocked me with his surprise proposal (read about it here). Thinking back to it now, I really couldn’t imagine it being any more perfect and I honestly wouldn’t change a thing… except maybe wishing I was better prepared. I could have packed a handbag with a few emergency supplies like tissues and makeup because I didn’t stop crying for an hour straight afterwards and my face definitely needed a touch up and most importantly I wish I had some deodorant! Nothing quite says ‘YES’ like a big sweaty hug, right?

Fast forward a year and as our wedding planning gets underway, I will certainly make sure I am more prepared for our wedding day. We know we want to get married in summer which means it will likely be very hot and as I know I will be nervous on the day, I can bet my bottom dollar that I will be waving my arms around like a mad woman trying to cool myself down. Isn’t it funny how sometimes the most amazing moments are the ones that make us sweat?

We all have worries about the big day, but one of mine is definitely going to be those dreaded sweat patches! So we are excited to partner with Simply Stylist and Dove on their recently launched, Amazing Moments campaign in which the brand puts its Clinical Protection Antiperspirant to the test during a real woman’s surprise proposal to the love of her life. Dove Clinical Protection offers undeniable wetness protection and has ¼ moisturizers to care for skin.

As part of our collaboration we want to make sure you are prepared for the amazing moments in your life by ensuring you have somewhere to stash all your emergency supplies for your wedding day, especially your Dove Clinical Protection Antiperspirant and what better way than with this stylish clutch.

A plain clutch* | Glitter Iron On | Iron | Cricut Explore** |

Step 1:

Upload the #BESTDAYEVER quote to your Cricut Design Space and resize them to fit your clutch. Mine was approximately 10 inches wide.

Step 2:

Place your Iron On onto a standard grip mat and set your dial to cut Iron On. Following the Instructions on your screen begin cutting out your quote, ensuring that you have mirrored the image.

You may remember a couple of weeks ago we were sent a box of goodies from the paint heaven company that is rustoleum? We were challenged to upcycle something and in case you missed it you can check out how we upgraded a bunch of teapots here! As you can imagine though with a box of amazing paints lying around my house it wasn’t long until I got itchy feet and had to dive straight back into the package!

I headed to a local gift shop and bought a bunch of plain white taper candles (they were only 70p each!) and thought it would be fun to create an ombre effect on them using the multi purpose spray paint in candy pink! I think these would make beautiful favours for a wedding or even gifts for your bridesmaids and obviously at a bargain price! Here’s how you can make your own:

YOU WILL NEED:

White taper candles // spray paint in the colour of your choice // glasses (for drying) //

STEP 1:

Holding the top of the candle, simply spray paint the bottom of the candle creating an ombre effect.

STEP 2:

Pop the candle in a glass, upside down and allow the paint the fully dry.
