Folksy Friday - Weddings

As we're heading towards June which is the traditional month for getting married, this weeks theme is Weddings. It's been a very long time since I got married, and things have changed a lot in that time. Getting married is a really big deal now! I don't mean that it was never an important step in someones life, I'm thinking that commercially it is now a huge occasion. When I got married back in the seventies, money was tight. My Mother-in-Law made my dress (she was a dressmaker), and we hired the Church Hall and did all the catering ourselves, with a little (a lot of) help from our families. There was no bar, we bought the drink and the hire of the glasses came free, we did hire a DJ and that was about it. Nowadays, there are balloons, wedding favours and many other things that are now considered to be essential for a Wedding. There is no shortage of fabulous handmade Wedding essentials to be found on Folksy, here are just a few.....
