AEAlaska Crafter With a wedding on the horizon, the happy couple can get a bit snappy and overwhelmed. Especially when it comes to the money that seems to fly out of their pockets at the mention of matrimony. A DIY wedding often comes to mind as the ideal solution, but few brides have time to plan and make each and every detail. It's even harder for us in Southeast, who are inevitably missing family members who have to be shipped in for the occasion - another wallet thinner to be sure. So, knowing when to splurge and save can be vital (check out the last craft column for those tips*). The third step, getting your craft on, is a time for the betrothed to relax, get creative, and get excited about the big day.
