So,  here’s my first suggestion… go to Now try to leave! For all you DIY Brides out there I know that you feel like you’ve struck gold, right?

Here’s a little background about the magazine…

Nonpareil Magazine is an online mag that gives brides not only inspiration, but also fresh ideas, DIY projects, printables, templates, and so much more. And who’s responsible for this unbelievable wedding inspiration gem you may ask? None other than the Inspired Bride (and pal of BBTB) herself Maddy and Kristen of Paper Crave. Oh, and I have to mention their newest editor, our friend Jessica a.k.a. The Budget Savvy Bride!

In their latest issue, appropriately named “Unqiuely Crafted”, the contributors (which are wedding experts and esteemed wedding vendors, along with the editors) featured ideas for creative centerpieces, edible escort cards, printable napkin rings, a cookie menu and seating chart, and quite possibly the most original idea for save the dates that I have ever seen! And EVERY issue is jam-packed with the most ingenious DIY projects.

Also, the issues of Nonpareil are so cleverly themed! Issue #03 “Something Old Into Something New” is a collection of DIY projects that will keep your event unique by showing you fresh takes on popular and traditional wedding staples. Can you say amazing? While Issue #04 “A Silver Screen Soiree” regards some of the most style-driven pieces of the large and small screen. Ideal for a silver screen inspired event.

Whether you are just starting your wedding planning or are a DIY Bride in need of some of creativity and DIY projects, Nonpareil Magazine will be your bible!!
