Double-Layered Birdcage Veil, Sophisticated Dress in ‘Olive’ & Crafty DIY Tutorials for Last-Minute Gifts!

Happy Wednesday! We are literally busting at the seams with handmade wedding inspiration, so we thought we’d throw a three-parter post at you today.  Enjoy over your morning coffee & let us know which one you admire most.

First of all, these images are so breathtaking that I would very much like to frame them to admire in our office.  This double-layered birdcage veil was designed by Tessa Kim and measures 14 inches long. It features tulle and Russian veiling and is available in white, diamond white, and ivory. Photography by Candice Benjamin & Marilyn Nakazato. LOVE, love, love. ♥

For part two, we present this jaw-dropping bridesmaid dress in a sophisticated shade of ‘Golden Olive’. It is a flattering shape and features flutter sleeves, which your bridesmaids will appreciate. (Not everyone loves a strapless dress!) By Love June and available in many colors (though we’re quite partial to this shade).

And, last but not least, part three brings us to Reason #9934039 why we love handmade. Many artists love their craft so much they are willing to share tutorials with fellow crafters!  One of our favorites is this headband tutorial by Snazzie Drawers

… and an assortment of flower DIYs by Jewel Box Ballerina!

If you’re feeling crafty and want to create some beautiful last-minute Christmas gifts, call your girlfriends over, grab some supplies, hot cocoa, blast the Christmas music, and get crafting! Make this holiday a handmade one!

Can’t wait to bring you even more later today!
