    Default Some More Wedding DIY :)

    Been doing some more DIY for the big day - think I've caught the bug! Have been making our place settings for the guests (with the help of fiancé!), done one of the BM's money banks as a thank you gift, and in the process of making wine glass charms for the ladies at the wedding here's some pictures!

    Place settings (blue for the men, pink for the ladies and purple for children).

    Aww thank you Owl Proposal

    I go to a local ceramics class where I live in Rutherglen, she sells the supplies (done the bank and the letters there!) and I just pay the weekly class and paint it all there. The banks have worked out £14 each to make - which is cheaper than a lot of shops sell them for, and I love that they are personal she also takes orders to paint them and sell them as well. x

    Thank you nearlymrsT I love them, they're a wee bit different. We need to do 103 in total already done 40 so far though so getting through them pretty quickly. And the wedding isn't until next May, I just seem to be mega organised lol! x

    Love the letters, they're such an original idea! The bank is lovely and for half the price of a bog standard shop-bought one x

    I go to a ceramics class in rutherglen and do them there. I'm sure if you're not local to rutherglen, there will be other ceramics classes where you could do it too

    I really want to do MR & MRS for the top table, with the MR and MRS in ivory, and the & sign in pink glittery (main colour of the wedding), but not sure if it'll look cheesy/tacky? x
