We’re very excited to help our friend Bree of Capitol Romance spread the word about her very cool upcoming workshops. Launching May 4, 2014, these workshops are a great opportunity to learn how to make some one-of-a-kind items for their weddings. How cool is that? Here’s Bree to explain what her DIY Wedding Workshops are all about:

Are you a DIY bride or groom? Or perhaps you love the look of hand-made details, but you aren't exactly crafty. Or maybe your best friend is getting married and he/she expects you to make a TON of things for their wedding! If one of these things describes you, then Capitol Romance DIY Wedding Workshops might be your new favorite event! Launching on May 4th, Capitol Romance is working with a series of local DC artisans & wedding vendors to provide hands-on workshops for couples to learn to create unique and special DIY items for their weddings.

Each workshop will cover a different artist and topic, flowers to hair pieces, to chalkboard signs and more! All workshops will be held on Sunday afternoons at The Ulysses Room (a creative artist’s loft studio space) in Washington, DC. Workshop tickets include cost of all materials, hands-on assistance from a professional, and lots of goodies (in the form of dessert favors, peach sangria, light refreshments from local DC vendors and more!).

Our first workshop is on May 4th and it will be hosted by Ciao Nina founder, Nina O'Neil. Attendees will learn how to work with wire and beading to create unique embellishments that can be used on boutonnieres, hair fascinators, and even centerpieces. Nina will show the class how to create these items, and then every attendee will have the chance to make their own hairpiece (perfect for a rehearsal dinner, cocktail event, or even a wedding!).

Can't wait to see you there!
