Clear your calendar for crafternoons, yummy baking and stunning dinner parties…the latest edition of Modern Wedding DIY is on sale today, filled with projects, ideas and inspiration you'll love. Modern Wedding DIY editor, Gail MacDiarmid, chose eclecticism as the theme for this issue, drawing inspiration from the heart of DIY which combines creativity, and resourcefulness, drawing on materials and ideas from various eras, styles, trends and materials.
The pages of this magazine cover everything from cooking, styling, photography, stationery, decor, flowers, painting and skills you didn't even know you could try yourself! With beyond beautiful images and easy instructions, it's the sort of magazine you can return to time and time again.
Here's a sneak peek of some of the fabulous features inside...
Starting on page 18, 'learn the art of eclectic wedding styling' from individual items and colours to textures and food. It's about bringing it all together to create a beautiful and harmonious effect.
The concrete candles (page 38) are one of our favourite DIY projects in this edition and more than a few at Modern Wedding HQ have successfully replicated these! Perfect for wedding favours, thank you gifts and table centrepieces.
We've got four stationery styles in our stationery feature from modern classics and floral pockets to these watercolour thank you notes on page 44.
Fresh flowers are always in style, and styling them yourself is easy with our 16 page floral styling feature. Get to know the dahlia bloom and how you can use it (page 52) and learn to make a floral garland in the 'floral masterclass' on page 54. Style with herbs on page 60. and create 'macrame magic' on page 63.
In our regular feature 'One Table Three Ways', guest stylist Charlie Tran shows us how to create three different table setting themes, including 'Watercolour Romance', 'Organic Woodland' and 'Geo Metallics'.
Whether it be a home-baked food favour gift, a delicious dessert or a scrumptious wedding cake, they are all baked, iced, decorated by hand and flavoured with love! We cook up a storm in 'From the Kitchen' (page. 96) with naked cakes (big and small!), lamingtons, rocky road cake and passionfruit cream cookies!
…and that's less than 20% of the magazine!
