Ok, I've been thinking about this for a while, and I think I'm going to go for it - just need to figure out the right way to market it for maximum exposure....
It's mid-spring now, and wedding season is just getting started. I mentioned in an earlier post that I got married last summer - it was an amazing day - you'll see! And speaking from experience, I know brides are always looking for little details, especially artistic and handmade, to add to their big day. I was lucky enough to be able to make many of these items for my own wedding myself, with the help of talented friends and family. But many people don't have that luxury - they don't have the time or the resources or the motivation. That's where I come in!
Now, we seriously made A LOT of the items for our wedding. Both because it saved us some money and because it was just more special that way. We made the save-the-date postcards, the programs (fans! - it was outside in August), I calligraphed the envelopes for the invitations - my awesome sister-in-law printed them for us through her business Sassafras Paper. As decor/favors my mom and a whole group of friends and family and I made little clay birds that hung on trees in the tent as decor and then people got to take them home. Mom and I arranged all the flowers for the centerpieces ourselves in her antique milk glass china. My super-talented friend Annie made 600+ origami paper cranes that I strung into a curtain to line one side of the tent.... So many things. But what I'm going to focus on here are the bridesmaids' jewelry, which were some of the reversible disc earrings you have seen samples of already, and the copper cones I made for the gents' boutonnieres.
