Happy Friday guys! I am SO SO SO excited about today’s DIY I can’t even tell you! As you know we’re big fans of Beyoncé around here, so much so that we created these fun Beyoncé lyric glassware stickers for bachelorette or birthday parties, bridal showers or just everyday life! I’ve wanted to create some…Details
Anyone else got that Friday feeling? I feel like this week has absolutely flown by, we’ve been really busy (in a great way) but I am super excited to see the weekend ahead! If you’re celebrating something tonight or tomorrow, or perhaps you’ve got a bridal shower or bachelorette / hen party coming up then today’s DIY is for you! We’ve just released a bunch of these fun rainbow printable cup wrappers to transform your table tops!
They’re so easy to make, simply download the files here (or below) and print them out onto white paper. Next, cut them out and wrap them around a bunch of paper cups, then all you need to is glue the wrappers in place. You’ll instantly update the look of the table decor with a punch of bright colour and you can guarantee your gal pals will love the fun slogans on the front!
We’re pretty sure the slogans are a recipe to the perfect party! Dance, smile, enjoy, drink, talk & laugh! Sounds like a pretty fun get together to me! Team our cups with some pretty straws and a bunch of delicious cocktails and we know you’re onto a winner! (bonus points if you make colourful cocktails to match!) We’ve got some great cocktail ideas you can check out here too!Details
Flower crowns are one of my favourite accessories not only when it comes to weddings but also festivals (and every day life!) whether they’re real flowers, faux flowers or paper flowers I’m seriously obsessed, and all the better when the colours are as bright and bold as this DIY flower crown we’re sharing with you today! Holly from Club Crafted is going to demonstrate how fun making a crown like this is, they would look so adorable on little flower girls or even a great craft to do at a bridal shower! Over to Holly…
When I, Holly, set out to make paper flower crowns, I struggled with how to make flowers that were both simple to make and that would not appear cheesy or childish. After trying out a few different flower designs, I have two styles of flowers to share (with a template!) to make this project as easy as possible for you but still feel elegant, and once put together, these flower crowns are perfect for a bridal shower project or any other type of event you want to celebrate.
I’ll warn you, making these crowns is fun but will be a long process. Just use a variety of your favorite spring colored paper and start cutting! Once all of the pieces are cut and curled, the gluing is a piece of cake. If you have a cutting machine, such as a Cricut or Silhouette, you can upload these PNG templates to cut for you. Otherwise, note that cutting by hand may take some time to cut enough flowers to fill the crown. There are two types of flowers: large individual petal flowers and smaller one-piece flowers.
YOU WILL NEED:
Coloured cardstock, including green for leaves // White cardstock // Scissors // Glue gun and glue sticks // Paper flower templates //
If cutting by hand, print the paper flower templates in your desired size and use them as templates to cut out flowers from the colored cardstock. The one-piece flowers should be about 4 inches wide. The individual petal flowers should be about 2 inches wide for the large petals and 1.5 inch wide for the small petals (5 large, 5 small per flower).
Note, cut some petal shapes out of green paper for leaves and cut the comb-looking pieces out of a yellow or similar color to be the middles of the flowers.Details
One quick look around Bespoke Bride and you’ll find it’s pretty obvious that we’re not HUGE fans of being traditional, you wouldn’t find me throwing a beautiful bouquet that someone has poured their heart into creating just because it’s tradition and I’m not sure I would wear ‘something blue’ on my wedding day but one tradition I do really love is the garter.
I think that there is something so beautiful, sexy and elegant about them when they’re done well and one company that get’s it right every-single-time is the Wedding Garter Co. Their garters range from simplistic to pretty and embellished to fancy, all oozing elegance and style! In case you’re not familiar with The Wedding Garter Co you’ll be pleased to know that every single garter is handmade and has been lovingly crafted in their Bath workshop. Meaning each item truly is an heirloom piece that you can cherish!
Right, let’s talk dresses shall we? Because it’s not always easy to know what style of garter you can wear with different types of wedding dresses. For example, if you’re wearing a dress or skirt that has lot’s of layers then you really can choose from a wide range of garters, in fact you could wear any type that you like, whether it’s lace, silk, tulle or embellished, the garter world is your oyster!
However, if you’re going to be wearing a tight fitting gown then you might want to consider a simple silk garter, The Wedding Garter Co have garters (Like the ‘Hera’ garter) that have been specifically designed to be more sleek and discreet, making them the perfect hidden accessory. (Top Tip: Wear them just above the knee to keep them more concealed)Details
