I never imagined there were so many jaw-dropping styles both new and vintage. I began perusing through these textured lovelies when I got an email from a bride wanting to locate a crocheted dress I'd posted a few weeks back. My Pinterest search for that one gem as you can see totally sidetracked me.
So unique and beautiful, these are perfect for the bride wanting to add that viva la difference factor to her wedding day look. Also, if you really want to evoke a back to nature or sustainable wedding design, here are a few things I learned from my sister who's been crocheting for years:
Historically, crochet was probably one of the first examples of textile craft. Tufts of fur or wool found on briars could be twisted into strands. The next obvious development would be to take the strands and loop them into themselves. That's about as green as you can get!
While you can order some exquisite and offbeat designs through Etsy (both machine-made and hand crocheted), I found the most alluring of these gems were teasers linking to craft patterns you can order and DIY--not a bad deal if you know how to crochet or have someone close to you who does.
