As a bride choosing the right kind of accessories, headpieces and jewellery can be a major challenge. There are so many style guides, suppliers and magazines to look at that it can be so difficult to pick things that are ‘you’ and also reasonably priced.
I stumbled across Folksy as it was recommended to me from a completely different angle – I am currently a member of Be a Mumpreneur and Folksy was one of the recommended ways to make a few bob if you are crafty. The site is basically a catalogue for people to list their handmade crafts (from those worth a few pounds to hundreds of pounds),so the range of things you can buy is huge. I am not crafty enough myself to list any items to sell, but I had a look anyway as I quite like quirky little gifts and I was really impressed by the range of things advertised on there for brides.
I also, this week purchased a watch to wear on the day from Auntie Trace’s Emporium. This is it:
I’ve not yet exhausted Folksy for my bridal supplies – I’m still not sure what to wear on my head – if anything, and there are some lovely shops selling handmade birdcage veils, tiaras, or bridal fascinators – choosing just one will be the hard part!
Folksy is not just for brides – have a look around a major event such as Mothers’ Day and Easter and you will find loads of unique gift ideas to suit any budget. Also, if you come across anything that might suit my head then please do let me know!
