What's Up? Weddings' newest blushing bride

Jul 28, 2010 07:15PM, Published by Anonymous, Categories:




 

(A terrifically horrendous photo taken immediately after the proposal ... can you believe neither one of us brought our cameras to New York City that weekend)

I’m also a bona-fide D(o)I(t)Y(ourself) bride, and I’d like to share my projects, inspiration and results with you, the What’s Up? Weddings readers. I’m not really doing things myself to save money – though that is always an incentive – but more because I want to be really involved in the planning process of my wedding. For some brides, it’s enough to pick out an invitation set from a stationer and add in their names. Perhaps it’s all the time and creative talent they can muster. For me, however, as someone who has always loved crafts and design and enjoys spending time in Photoshop or cutting up paper, DIY projects are a way to really involve myself in the wedding.

I also want to hear your ideas and plans. The most fabulous of weddings are not created by wedding magazines or TV shows – they’re dreamt up by brides who are willing to think outside the box and make their weddings one-of-a-kind (with a few traditional aspects thrown in, perhaps?)

Leave a comment here or e-mail me at kcollins@whatsupmag.com to tell me all about your wedding plans.
