DIY Weddings Part 5 - Button Holes

Morning all!

My DIY Wedding series (about my own wedding) is now almost complete. One thing I couldn't end without talking about was Button Holes! By far one of the favourite things I was making for the wedding was the button holes. I didn't go the traditional flowers route but instead chose a combination of materials that would last forever and looked a bit more unique.

Now before I get started showing off the colourful creations I put together I have to admit that I took a huge amount of inspiration from my good friend Gemma Ritchie of Autumn Jitters. She had a 'Tweed and Feathers' inspired wedding a few years , how amazing is that theme??!

I still have the button hole from her wedding and I love that it reminds me of her big day, I have it in a little vase in my living room :)

Before I show you some pictures of the button holes I made I wanted to put together a list of button hole inspiration for you!

Wild Feather Button Holes by Curious fair on Etsy

I recommend Etsy, Folksy and Pinterest if you are searching for inspiration or if you want to buy some lovely hand crafted button holes from independent designer makers.

The button holes below are by LindenFlowers on Etsy

For something a bit different you can have a paper flower button hole! Like this design by MissPoppinsandMe

There are so many designs and styles out there, why have traditional flowers that will wilt by the afternoon when you can have buttons, feathers, mini deer antlers even??
I chose fabric and feathers for my button holes, in the same colours as the bunting that we made, pink, purple, turquoise, gold and silver...

I LOVED the spotty feathers that I added,they added such a fun feel to the button holes :-D They were pretty easy to make and as I said make a great keepsake for people afterwards.

Okay so thats it for today, I hope you have enjoyed the post! If anyone has a DIY Wedding they would be interested in letting me share on the blog the get in touch! I would love to hear from you.

Have a good day all x
