There seems to be a real trend lately for do it yourself or diy weddings. Talk about pressure! Ever since Pinterest arrived, it seems that it is not enough to have a beautiful wedding, you have to have one that has all these small handmade touches too. This is great for the brides who have the skills, resources and most importantly time to do these items but it is not great for those who don't. If you are not a handy bride, want something outside of your ability or just don't have the time there are limited options. Yes you could find people to make your items but that often involves having an idea and spending lots of time on Etsy looking for someone to make it. If you have multiple ideas, you have to contact multiple people whereby spending time and money trying to get what you want. There must be an easier way and that way is to get in touch with Thea-Bel.
We are a One Stop Shop
With multiple vendors (and growing) at our disposal we are a great resource that can save you time and money when planning your wedding. Many of our vendors specialize in custom work and have even done weddings in the past. If you know what you want, you can send ONE email with a description and/or pictures and we will see what we can do for you. Isn't that easy? Plus, when you use our services, you are dealing with one contact person and can pay for everything on two transactions (we will require a deposit before starting any work for you).
Not Sure What You Want
Not a problem, not only are the crafters really nice people but they are also very talented and can think outside the box. Send us an email with your wedding vision and let us know your theme. Chances are we can help come up with items you didn't even realize you could get.
What Can you Help With
The better question is what can't we help with! Here are some ideas to get you thinking:
Save the Dates / Invitations / Thank You Cards
Instead of the same store bought cards that everyone uses, get something that not only looks amazing but fits your wedding theme.
Need help with the table centre pieces, table numbers, seating chart, signage, guest book...
We have some vendors who do flower arranging using silk flowers. Not only do you have a beautiful bouquet but you can keep it forever. Plus, you can get these flowers in advance and they are fragrance free.
We could do anything from custom soap bars to key chains cut out in a shape you wanted to wine glasses with the wedding date...
Gifts for the Wedding Party
What about custom made wood boxes that can hold trinkets. Or perhaps you go with some wedding jewellery that can be worn at the wedding and then kept (maybe in a custom jewellery box).
I'm Interested, Now What?
It's easy, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with as much information as you can provide. Let us know what you are looking for, the budget as well as theme or colour information. We will send it off to our talented creators and then come back with what we can do for you.
Do You Do This for Other Events?
Absolutely! Whether it is a child's birthday party or an open house, we would be happy to help you out with some custom invites, decorations or party favors.
I'm Attending a Wedding, Do You Do Custom Gifts?
Yes we sure do. We could put together a custom sign welcoming them into their new house or how about a cutting board with their names on it? These are just a few of the things we could do for you.
Don't Forget our Ready Made Gifts
Whether you are attending a wedding or planning one, don't forget that we have a section on our website devoted to weddings. Make sure you check it out.
