The Boho Wedding Directory is a hand-picked list of all awesome wedding suppliers in the business, ready to help you...
Today I hand over the blog to my new Guest Blogger Chloe Adlington from Adore By Chloe . Chloe is the Queen of all things handmade and DIY, so when my readers survey results came back as saying you all wanted more DIY features I knew Chloe was the person to contact.
Chloe will be making a monthly appearance on the blog, bringing you DIY ideas, tutorials and inspiration. So I hope you all show her lots fo Boho Love!
Today Chloe brings us a stunning Mood Board full of DIY ideas and inspiration. So let me hand over the Blog to Chloe and let her introduce herself to you all.
Hello and thanks so much to Kelly for inviting me to be a regular guest contributor on the Boho blog, I’ll be here once a month to bring you DIY wedding goodness!
I write about creative, handcrafted weddings over at my little blogging home www.adorebychloe.co.uk but it’s nice to be out and about making new friends ;-) I’m not going to lie, it’s a tiny bit weird / cringeworthy to introduce myself formally but I also know that when I read a new blog I like to know a bit about the person behind the words. It’s nice to imagine the person writing then you can relax, enjoy and it feels like catching up with a friend, do you know what I mean?!
Ok, so here goes…. newly engaged (yay!), blonde, mid- late twenties, full time blogger with two little pug assistants called Lily & Alfie. LOVE making things, writing lists, drinking tea, baking cakes and weddings… obviously! It’s lovely to meet you, now can get stuck in with an ‘Adore DIY inspiration board‘?…. not that I’m shy or anything ;-)
I’m sure you’ve seen hundreds of wedding ‘inspiration’ boards, they’re fab as they showcase creative styling inspiration (this one is ‘Shipwrecked’) and/or a colour palette (gorgeous combo of coral and sand) but I hope what you’ll like about these boards is that they are almost entirely made of of DIY projects!

– A quirky idea as a guest book alternative are these messages in a bottle (spotted on tumblr) or use a piece of furniture like the barrel, spotted on Grey Likes Weddings and photographed

-Carry on your theme after the big day by sending vintage postcard thankyou notes – available from Etsy
-Have a bit of fun with a beach themed photo booth, it’s a good excuse for silly hats and cocktails (via 100 Layer Cake)!
What do you think? I’d love to hear your comments, get to know you a little bit and share more DIY ideas…
