Syndetics book coverStylish weddings : 50 simple ideas to make from top designers / Jenny Doh.
“Doh (Craft-a-Doodle) has pulled together a group of designers to present a host of theme-wedding ideas, or perhaps, a hearty hint of inspiration for couples in need of a kick in their personal direction. Each theme takes ample space in making a doable deal out of such fixtures as eggshell vases with wire racks or asparagus bouquets (natural and organic theme) or colorful treat boxes and vintage wallpaper wrapping (romantic and pretty theme). Wedding invitation ideas and craft sources are in ample supply.” (Adapted from Publisher Weekly)

Syndetics book coverRustic chic wedding : 55 projects for creating your own wedding style / Morgann Hill.
“”Have glue gun, will wed” is an apt catchphrase for this collection of wedding craft projects with a rustic/ecochic aesthetic. Hill, a popular Etsy seller of handmade wedding decor, organizes her designs into themed groups (shabby chic, rustic and recycled, and country farmhouse) for easy reference. Since wedding crafts may be some couples’ first foray into handicraft, many of the ideas are simple and require few, if any, specialized tools, other than the aforementioned glue gun.” (Adapted from Library Journal)
