There’s wedding fever in the Ideas office at the moment – first it was Hannes’s brother, then my godchild and finally Dala’s niece. The weddings are coming one after the other and they all want to do their own thing. Or rather, to rope in family and friends to do it with them. Handmade, individually folded, imperfectly stitched, group-made wedding accessories are the trend! And so is Pinterest with its endless wealth of inspiration. For this special edition, we tried to think like a bride and so we also started with Pinterest. Because we’re all too aware of the overabundance of information and ideas on this platform, we cut out and organised our inspiration photos in the old-fashioned way and grouped them into themes, to keep each theme focused, before we made our inspiration boards. Only then could we start planning in detail and soon we had transformed the craft room into a hive of activity: some stitching, some glueing and others folding. Bottles and boutonnières, piñatas and paper flowers, butterflies and false beards all became part of our lives for one intense, creative month-long marathon, and then suddenly it was all done and photographed. Just as a wedding becomes lovelier by the minute as the venue, the flowers and the bride are revealed, so Hannes’s templates, Enid’s sketches and Dala’s layouts pulled together all the hard work perfectly and here it is – our 2015 wedding guide that will walk the path with you until you take those last few steps as a Miss. Enjoy every minute!
