weddings and reclaimed crafts

25bc8-dsc_0018A few years ago, we hosted a super fun wedding diy bridal shower. While guests noshed, drank and chit chatted, they also helped the bride complete some handmade table numbers, and personalized a box to be used to store well wishes that we had already decoupaged with maps with personal meaning to the couple.  It was a great way to bring some close friends together to have fun and help the bride create really special decor for her wedding.

We were recently asked to create some signs from salvaged barn boards for the upcoming wedding show for Valley Wed, which seeks to connect couples to the top local wedding professionals in western Mass.  If only Valley Wed were around when I got married! 
So many of reclaimed crafts’ creations lend themselves to wedding decor and favors. Here are just a few.
