DIY Wedding Family Tree {With Hobbycraft}

{Sponsored Post}

When it comes to your DIY wedding decor kit, there’s a new kid in town. We’ve teamed up with Hobbycraft to share an extremely easy yet effective DIY tutorial for a wedding family tree that makes an impressive installation. The latest decor trend you need in your arsenal is the humble embroidery hoop and to create the full display, you only need a few bits and pieces. If you’re after last minute wedding decor, you can easily pull this together along with some real gems to add final touches, all available on next day delivery from Hobbycraft.
Displaying family wedding photos at your own nuptials is a wonderful way of including your parents, grandparents and siblings in your big day. You can display on any backdrop in your venue that’s suitable. We chose to use a gorgeous apple tree to make the perfect setting for a family tree, but you could easily hang this from an archway or beams, depending on the venue.

What Makes A Good Bridesmaid?

Hi everyone, it’s lovely to be back over here chatting bridesmaids as normally you’ll find me over on our lifestyle site, Rock My Style.

My friend Caroline recently got engaged to her fiancé Bradley and asked me to be one of her best girls. With this in mind Fern and I thought a series of posts from a bridesmaid’s perspective might be helpful. I’ll go into a lot of detail about the hen do planning in the next few posts but for now I thought we should get serious and talk about the responsibilities…

Snuggling Up For Winter

On our sister lifestyle blog, Rock My Style we recently climbed aboard the hygge bandwagon. If you’re not familiar with the Danish term, it’s essentially creating cosy and conversational spaces to savour everyday moments and enjoy life with your nearest and dearest. Sounds like a flipping lovely idea to me.

Essentials For Every DIY Bride.

DIY Post

Long time no see! It’s Lauren C here. I’m hoping you’ve heard all about Rock My Wedding’s little sister blog, Rock My Style? If you have, we hope you’ve found a wealth of beauty, fashion and interiors inspiration, if not, where the devil have you been hiding?!

Over on RMS I can be found mostly talking about home décor and DIY’s (as well as a whole load of other lifestyle chat) so I thought it would be nice to talk about do-it-yourself over on these pretty pages.

In the run up to my own big day there was a whole lot of punching and stamping going on. No, that wasn’t me having a Bridezilla moment, rather myself and the rest of the family getting stuck in to some good old DIY. My own wedding is now a distant memory but my calendar is crammed with wedding invites from some of my closest friends and I’m only too happy to lend a hand with a home-made creation or two.

I’m not promising that I’m going to bring a whole load of new ideas to the table but I’ve gathered together a few essentials if you’re planning on including a bit of do-it-yourself for your Big Day.
