The “Crafty” Bride

Whether your budget is $10,000 or $50,000 every bride is looking at ways they can stay within budget… no matter how big or small that budget may be. One of the Glendalough Manor brides getting married in October found a great website she shared with me where you can find elegant decorations for any event at reasonable prices.   You can buy glass vases, crystal curtains or trees, aisle runners, preserved flowers and much more!!


The best thing about this website is that if you are trying to cut costs you can create your own centerpieces or favors to cut labor costs associated with vendors.  Try this link and let us know what you think! 

Help! What do I give my bridesmaids?!


So you want to do something creative for your girls? Well for those of you who don’t know me…I LOVE CRAFTS! So if you’ve got a little extra time you could make something really unique for your gal pals!

Instead of doing the same ‘ol necklace/earring combo, try this MWL (Made With Love) gift from the heart!


One of my favorite gift ideas for bridesmaids is a clutch purse you picked out just for them!

Okay you’ll love this one! My new favorite site is Etsy! Get on there and find something handmade that is beautiful! Unique earrings, a vintage hair accessory like these clips, or even a new pair of shoes!

So whether you make them something or buy them something, just be sure it’s personal!

Those are always the best gifts!
