Wedding Ideas - - CONTENTS -

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!
