Handmade Wedding: Introduction

~ ~

It's June, a month typically associated with roses and weddings, the end of school for kids and the beginning of summer vacation.  A month of many beginnings and endings. I was inspired by Etsy's "Handmade Wedding" series and wanted to share some Etsy wedding inspiration. 

A handmade wedding is a perfect start to the beginnings of a handmade life together. Whether you are anticipating your own nuptials in the near future, a guest at an upcoming wedding, or simply seeking inspiration, you've come to the right source!

What is a handmade wedding? My personal definition is a handcrafted wedding designed and created by the couple (and their families, friends, neighbors, and some complete strangers/new friends perhaps from Etsy). Handmade weddings emphasize a DIY ethos, creativity and ingenuity, out-of-the-box thinking, and a love for handmade details. The time, effort, and skills needed to create handmade objects and goods is a perfect metaphor for successful relationships. Good craftsmanship does not happen over night, but is a lifelong process of trial and error, of continual work towards creating a beautiful object (or life together). What does a handmade wedding (or a handmade life) mean to you personally? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
