How To Make Your Own Wedding Hair Pins…

So what do all you busy, busy Brides to be do if you are keen to get involved with the more ‘DIY’ aspect of your wedding planning, but are struggling for time?  Radiance Boutique wedding accessories will be offering some one-on-one hair pin making workshops throughout March and April, giving you the opportunity to create your own simple wedding hair accessories.  These DIY Bride workshops, perfect for the London Bride, will be delivered in bite-size format making them really accessible to busy Brides.  I’m going to hand on right over to Jennifer Allen from Radiance Boutique to explain more.

There are some great classes out there that will teach you to make your own jewellery but you’ll need the best part of £200 and a full day or evenings over the course of six weeks before you can reap the rewards.  I know a lot of brides want to add a personal touch to their wedding and would prefer to try their hand at a bite sized project where the results are immediate and relevant.

I really believe that everyone who wants to get a bit crafty should have the opportunity. Making something yourself is extremely rewarding. With the Royal Wedding just weeks away this is one of three projects I have in mind to get people doing just that. I find the occasion such an inspiration and feel we can all partake in the excitement of the build up to the big day!

I will be running the workshops from my home in Greenwich (less than 5 minutes from the dlr and train station) teaching you to make your own simple wedding hair pins in pearl or crystal. Each 1 hour 15 minute lesson will be hands on and you will leave with at least 6 hair pins for your big day and a worksheet so you can carry on making more for yourself or your bridesmaids when you get home.

The classes are suitable for beginners and a great way to add a personal touch to your wedding. Each workshop will cost £25 with £5 from every session going to one of the charities whose patron is Prince William. My aim is to raise £100 for charity through this and my other upcoming Royal Wedding inspired projects!

You can find the dates and times of the workshops here and simply by clicking ‘add to basket’ and checking out through the online shop. Once a date and time is booked it will disappear so be quick to get the slot you want! There are some afternoon, some after work and some weekend slots so hopefully something for everyone.

If you can’t see the slot you want you can drop me a line and I will try to squeeze you in if at all possible but please note that availability is limited. Currently these classes are only for making the more simple hair pins, this is because they involve the minimum amount of tools and I believe most people will get good results with practice once they know how.

If there is demand for making other items or general demand for these classes in the future I will consider continuing with them as more than a one off project so do let me know if your wedding isn’t for a while but you are interested, and, if you have any questions or comments about any of this do drop me a line at [email protected].
