Crafty Ideas for the Bride on a Budget: 75 DIY Wedding Projects Reviews
This was pretty awful. While I won't say that there was absolutely nothing of use in here, I will say that most of it was as stylish as my grandma's floral wallpaper. Really tacky-looking, and not very easy/good ideas.
All of the crafts in this book are terrible. And tacky
Styles must have changed quite a bit for weddings in the past 6 years. Published in 2006, I really do wonder if Kopp's book would have been helpful (and more stylish) back then. It's overall style asthetic certainly does not match my own. Projects are organised into 5 different styles (Glamour, Pretty in Pink, Modern Pastels, Fanciful & Fun, and Bold & Bright), with an appendix of Basic Craft Techniques and pages on how to work with fondant. Pro: - Completely colour coordinated projects to fit five different colour / style themes (including favours, cake, invitations, centre pieces and scrapbooking page)- Bouquet and floral arrangements with silk flowers which can probably be easily translated to fresh - Information on how to bake your own cake and decorate with fondant icing - Lots of pictures in appendix demonstrating techniqueCons: - It's not completely clear how much one would actually save using these projects - Few photos related to how projects should look at different stages (perhaps this is meant to be self-evident), but some large photos of end product- Style is rather ornate
I don't think most modern brides will find this book helpful. I'm not sure if wedding trends have changed that much in ten years or if this book was just never that great to begin with. There are a couple interesting projects but most of the styles and projects are outdated and there are better alternatives available to crafty and budget conscious brides.
For a craft book published in 2006, the projects look awfully dated. 90s wedding anyone?
