My Handmade Wedding by Marrianne Mercer is the guide for the bride who wants a perfect, DIY day that doesn't break the bank.

This cute book can help you make your own affordable wedding decorations in a timely manner that doesn't leave you stressing. Best of all, you can smile knowing that you made your big day beautiful all on your own!

Marrianne Mercer, the bride behind the guide, brings her own experience in both design and planning her own DIY wedding to her husband Dave.

The scrapbook-style layout of My Handmade Wedding lends itself to Mercer's style of adding little notes and tips for each section of the book. She zooms out to give overviews on the wedding planning process, while zooming in on the details of DIY tutorials.

The book is somewhat comprehensive, covering the wedding party, the ceremony, the reception, and even steps for after the honeymoon.

Some of the projects in this guide include how to make paper flowers, how to make your own corsage, how to make your own bouquet, how to make a ring pillow, how to make your own candles, and more. There aren't many parts of your wedding you can't make yourself, if determined and armed with this book.

While Mercer provides some details on her own wedding and thought process, she keeps the tone general and provides valuable timeframes and checklists. She also gives plenty of reminders for details like thank you notes and even the flower girl's hairpiece.

This book packs a surprising amount of information into concise sections, making it a great wedding guide for crafters.
