Create Custom Wedding Fabric with Spoonflower
One of our favorite websites for creative inspiration is Spoonflower. Spoonflower makes it possible for anyone and everyone to design and print totally customized fabric. Whether you have a drawing you'd like to make a scarf out of, a pattern that would look totally amazing in curtain form, or an old comic strip that's just begging to turn into a 60s shift dress, Spoonflower's got you covered.
For your wedding, the Spoonflower possibilities are nothing short of endless. You want every part of your wedding to be perfect, and a handful of items created with custom fabric are sure to give your special day that extra personal touch. If your project is small, simply purchase a yard of fabric – there's no required minimum. If your project is more involved, Spoonflower offers $5 swatches so you can test out every piece of your look. All fabric is printed using eco-friendly textile printing and fabric options include silk, organic cotton and linen blend. And if you think your fabric is the bee's knees for more than just you and your honey, put it up in the Spoonflower shop and make a little dough for your honeymoon! :)
For Brit's wedding, she used Spoonflower to create custom pixelated fabric for her bouquet wrap, for the groom's tie, and for the dessert table.
Two other big fans of creative living, Youngna Park and Jacob Krupnick, worked with designer Kelli Anderson to create custom vintage-style handkerchiefs to serve as invitations to their wedding. (And P.S. If you haven't seen Youngna and Jacob's most recent creative work, Girl Walk // All Day, get to it!)
Other awesome uses for custom fabric at weddings include: photo booth backdrops; napkins and table cloths; tote bags for favors; neckties and blazer liners for groomsmen; bouquet wraps, custom ribbon, and so much more. What will you create? Send ideas our way by leaving a note in the comments below!
