{swell weddings} making it personal

There are limitless ways to personalize your wedding and create your most unforgettable, perfect day. One of my favorite places to find these personal touches is in the day's minutest details. If you don't know this already, you will know now, and I hope you never forget it: Martha Weddings is the quintessential resource for sweet, handmade wedding crafts. Truly, there is no better way to show your guests how much their presence means to you than to send them a handmade invitation, or set a handwritten place card at their setting for the reception.

Here are just a few of my favorite craft ideas from Martha's archives. DIY wedding projects do not have to be stressful or overly time-consuming. You can make them fun and memorable by gathering all of your 'maids together to form a favor-making-ribbon-tying assembly line or sitting your family down at the dining room table for an afternoon with scissors, glue, and place cards. Plus, there are so many great resources and (kits!) out there to help streamline the process.
And the best part is: Martha Stewart Weddings just got better! The magazine's editor, Darcy Miller, has officially started an adorable wedding blog, The Bride's Guide. It's such a fun place to find answers and the inside scoop to what my idol, I mean, this wedding expert is up to!
