This year, I’ve been to 3 weddings, with more to follow! I guess I’m at the age where all my friends are getting married- I think 1 year I had 8 weddings! However, 1 of the most memorable ones was definitely my friend, Emma’s. She got married in 2012 and, back in the day, I was still living in Singapore. I actually flew to the UK for her wedding and was really touched when Joe (the groom) mentioned it in his speech! It was a beautiful wedding in the countryside, near the Jurassic Coast, and made even more special by the fact that Emma personally handmade all the wedding favours! She sewed the most amazing, beautiful scented hearts containing lavender potpourri. Now how’s that for sincerity? I wish I had it here to photograph but sadly it’s hanging in my room back home.
Anyway, so even though I’m not getting married, I thought a Wedding DIY round-up would be good- it really helps make the event ever the more special for your guests 🙂 And here are 3 that I think are both beautiful and useful! 🙂
