Leave it to Martha...

>> Tuesday, June 30, 2009

I spent my weekend flipping through the Summer issue of Martha Stewart weddings. I read it from top to bottom, front to back and enjoyed every second of it. Leave it totally up to Martha and her talented team to come up the most unique and cutest ideas. While reading I came across something that my bridesmaids would LOVE! Instead of doing your basic locket or bouquet brooch, Martha suggests that you find a simple necklace or bracelet with a birthstone gem for each bridesmaid’s bouquet. How cute would that be? Then after the wedding each bridesmaid will have their own birthstone necklace to wear forever! I love this idea because it kills two birds with one stone: the bridesmaids bouquet bling & gift.

Since I make jewelry, I will probably make all my bridesmaids a sterling silver bracelet with their own Swarovski Crystal gemstone. This will save me lots of cash and I know they love my jewelry pieces so they won’t mind adding another to their collection!

Supply cost for homemade bracelets:
  • Sterling Silver Chain: About $30 with enough chain to make 4 bracelets
  • Swarovski Crystal Pendants: $16 @ about $4 each
  • Findings: Sterling Silver clasps, beads and other supplies, $10
  • Total Cost Per Bracelet: ABOUT $14 each

Great idea. I saw the new mag this weekend and soooo wanted to buy it. Do you think it would be weird if I keep buying wedding mags AFTER I am already married? It is Martha after all!
