Create the wedding of your dreams with these simple and special handmade decoration ideas for your big day.




1. DOILY BUNTING
Why not collect old doilies or pick some up from your local charity shop and sew a quick and simple handmade crocheted bunting. If you want them in other colours simply dye the doilies whatever colour to fit your theme. A lovely way to recycle those vintage treasures.

  1. My friend who also was maid of honor stumbled upon this place, a hidden gem, and we popped over right away to see if it had possibilities. On first look and we knew it was perfect. The view from Chicago wedding venues is to die for, and provided a breathtaking backdrop to the ceremony and then dinner.
