A Review of Rustic Chic Wedding by Morgann Hill

Rustic Chic Wedding by Morgann Hill

A DIY Guide with 55 projects for crafting your own Wedding Style

Rustic Chic Wedding is a bride and groom’s peek into the vintage-inspired, timeless wedding of their dreams. A little DIY with a whiff of romance and whimsy goes a long way toward wedding-day magic.

Choose from any of the three beautiful wedding “themes.” Maybe your wedding style is Shabby Vintage Couture Wedding: try the Garden Table Numbers or Monogrammed Cake Stand. Or if the Rustic, Recycled & Re-purposed Wedding is more your speed, there’s a Flower Girl Crown and Kissing Bell. The Urban Farmhouse Wedding has instructions for creating a Twig Cake Topper and a S’mores Bar. However you mix and match the projects, your wedding will express your love story, inside and out!

With a chapter on creating the perfect themed tablescape and one dedicated to beautiful bridal bouquets and boutonnieres, Rustic Chic Wedding will be an indispensable guide on the sweetest day of your life.

My Review:

Rustic Chic Wedding is my favorite DIY Wedding Book ever. 

The designs are gorgeous, yet simple. You don't need an engineering degree to be able to do the fabulous DIY decor and wedding accessories. Too many crafty wedding books demonstrate complicated designs that you need specialized tools and supplies for...not this.  These are really the greatest DIY wedding ideas for any crafter skill set from newbie to experienced crafter.

About as complicated as the tools get is a wood burner...for pretty much everything else...a hot glue gun. And what crafter does not have a hot glue gun on hand? It's like the number one tool of the trade. And what I really love- is that not only do they list what you'll need- you also get full color images of what the tools and supplies look like. Crafting has never been simpler.

And the designs...the ideas....beautiful, elegant, with a hint of rustic charm.

The Rustic Chic Wedding is full of projects that will fit into outdoor weddings, barn weddings, country weddings, cowboy theme weddings, Victorian weddings, garden weddings, and any wedding where simple elegance with a touch of rustic charm is wanted.

I am so in love with these designs I want to plan a wedding centered around them :-)
