Here are 3 very different wedding ideas I have discovered recently that I think are definitely worth sharing with you.
1) A fabulous recycling idea…
Recycle your wedding dress to make a christening gown.
Previously I discussed my reasons for donating my wedding dress to charity. One of my reasons for not keeping my gown was because I couldn’t see the logic behind keeping the dress when most people store their dress away never to be looked at again, or to be pulled out once a decade or so.
But instead of simply storing, selling or donating your dress why not turn it into something else?
Your little one’s christening is such an important and special day. Why not make it even more special by creating their gown out of your old wedding dress? ‘Love Keep Create‘ is a clothing keepsake company, that turns old items of clothing in teddy bears, cushions, memory blankets… plus they can take your wedding dress and turn it into a beautiful christening gown.
The christening gown can be made not only from your dress but to reflect the design of your dress too. When you place your order you advise what size you need the christening gown to be made to and the date you require it to be made by. Then for £110 and an 8 week lead time you will receive the completed hand stitched christening gown in a beautiful clear lidded presentation box.
2) A budget friendly photographer…
Get a full day package Kaptured by Kerlair for £800
I have bought to you details of many fabulously low budget wedding photographers previously, but today I would like to share with you another I discovered only recently. For just £800 Kerlair (who is based in London, but will travel up to 50 miles from her base to your location for no extra charge) will cover your wedding day photography from Bridal preparations through to the first dance. This package is her ‘Eternity package’ but you could also opt for the ‘Timeless Package‘ where for just £500 you’d have your wedding covered from arrivals through to the first dance.
I have added Kerlair to the ‘Budget Suppliers’ page.
3) Nature Inspired Jewellery…
Bring nature into your accessories with Lucy Jade Sylvester
Lucy is based in Oxfordshire, and creates some of the most wonderfully delicate nature inspired jewellery pieces. The piece that first caught my eye was poppy pod earrings, but having looked at her website there are a ton of pieces I would love to own. I’m not saying her jewellery would strictly fall under the category of ‘budget friendly’, but there are pieces in ranging value on her site so you could well find something you love within your budget.
If like I did, you are bringing the outside in to your wedding decor, then some of these pendants could make the best Bridesmaids gifts?
