Here Comes The Beaded Bride
Oh the agony and ecstasy of being a bride-to-be. One minute you’re plucking the petals of daisies, trusting fate to decide whether your partner loves you, or loves you not, and suddenly you’re waist-deep in caterers, photographers and taffeta. So much to do, so little time. So many ideas, so what do you ditch and what do you execute? Well, I can make at least one of your decisions a little easier. Take care of that "Something New" by making your own wedding day jewelry. Not only do you get exactly what you want, but depending on your component choices, you may even save some money in the process. (Which gives you more opportunities to splurge during your honeymoon.) You can also create jewelry for your wedding party. Treat your maids to a handmade necklace or bracelet they'll always remember. If you’re not the bride-to-be but love to bead, handmade wedding day jewelry is a touching gift any bride would enjoy.
Now, if you’re looking for wedding day jewelry ideas, you’re reading the right blog. Goody Beads has a great new resources section with two fantastic wedding day jewelry ideas. There’s a bridal set featuring bracelet and earrings and a maid-of-honor anklet. Each comes with a complete list of components. Use these ideas as is or switch out components to make it your own.
If you’re looking for more wedding day ideas, check out these fab websites I find inspiring even though I haven’t been a bride since gold lame bridesmaid dresses were in style.
