Her colors are blue, to match her fiance's eyes. He seems to prefer the peacock feathers
The second being the Wedding Program that is stiched. I thought that could be very pretty
and tie in the wedding colors and time of year.
There is no way that I would be doing our own floral arangements, even with the savings.
We will be too busy at the end, as will everyone else.
All and all I found it a interesting book, with ideas I may use at other events.
At the end of the day I don't know that DIY saves you much if you count for time, but what I can tell you is it was very evident to all of our guests that not one detail hadn't been thought of and from the heart. For our wedding we had the ring-bearer bird's nest, the memorial candles and the custom water bottle labels. They all turned out great!
One reviewer mentioned this not being great for people who are new to crafting. While I've done plenty of crafting and DIY projects, I didn't find this especially onerous. That being said, if you were in fact new, although I'm sure you could eventually figure all these projects out, it probably wouldn't be a time saver.
All in all, this book was great and helped give us precisely the custom, special and unique wedding we wanted.
