I've just read about a new book with fab inspiration and tips for DIY brides. The DIY Bride Crafty Countdown is a DIY wedding planner with 40 original ideas to make in the months, weeks and hours before your big day.
Among some of my favourite ideas are creating a gourmet popcorn buffet complete with containers of popcorn, scoops and bags, save-the-date bags filled with homemade sweets and chocolates, and cupcake-in-a-jar favours. There are step-by-step guides, templates and useful hints and tips, plus planning sheets and checklists.
