helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

reconstructed hair clip

When I began wedding planning, I didn't really think I'd have a difficult time finding what I wanted. After many dead-ends with Google searches, I realized I'd have to do some things myself. Unfortunately, that was after I had purchased a couple of budget savvy things I ended up being less than happy with.

I've had to “re-do it myself” on a few of my wedding tasks. For example, I chose my wedding dress in late July, and it has the most beautiful dot tulle fabric. Later that week, I had the genius idea of making a reconstructed hair clip to match my dress's fabric. Not so difficult right? Well,  I couldn't find a thing I liked, but I ended up choosing a headpiece I thought would work. Once I received it, I tried it on with my dress, and I wasn't really happy with it. Last weekend I decided to reconstruct the whole thing and secure it with a pendant I found at Jo-Ann. Voila! I'm now super pleased with my headpiece.

Also, Josh and I just chose our cake topper. A super-cute monogram style by Custom Cut Monograms we found on Etsy. With our cake being white, we definitely needed some color, but this monogram only came in neutral colors. So I bought the white one, purchased some acrylic paint from Wal-Mart, and went to town on painting it. It's now a lovely purple monogrammed cake topper.

I'm a nut about details, so I had to do some improvising. I know my fellow BSBers can relate.

What have you decided to reconstruct? Or have you decided to completely DIY?
