2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing - expected more, February 13, 2011

This review is from: One-of-a-Kind Handmade Weddings: Easy-to-Make Projects for Stylish, Unforgettable Details (Paperback)
I found this much-hyped title VERY disappointing.

The projects were amateurish and only one or two were even vaguely "stylish". If anything, they were pedestrian, uninspired and quite basic. I have nothing against simple DIY projects, but the execution was overwhelmingly dated and dowdy, especially the chapter on artificial flowers. Truly, the flowers looked like something you would find in a two-dollar shop, even after they had been crafted into finished items.

I would only recommend this book to someone seeking the very simplest of projects, or someone whose creative flair and ability to envisage a finished piece in their own choice of materials is so well developed that they won't be put off by the unstylish execution of the sample projects.

"Handmade Weddings: More Than 50 Crafts to Personalize Your Big Day" offers a FAR more impressive resource for wedding DIY inspiration, while "Paperie for Inspired Living: Stationery and Decorations for Weddings, Parties, and Other Special Occasions" is much more exhaustive (and far prettier) if you're looking for help with crafting your own invitations.

Given the crafting and wedding pedigrees of the authors, I expected much more from this book than it delivered.
