Moving on from all that loveliness… do you fancy a challenge?  Don’t worry though, “upcycling” is not the latest fitness trend (no trainers required), it’s a fun and fabulous bridal styling charity competition brought to you by wedding blog Featured Supplier, All Wrapped Up Events

.

UpCycle

.

All Wrapped Up Events tells Brides Up North more: We are looking for teams of wedding industry professionals to get together and create a range of upcycled bride & bridesmaid looks plus a “themed table” with only a few rules…

.

All items must come from a LOCAL charity shops or second hand stores (within 25 miles of where you live).  This includes all clothes and all accessories.  The themed table must include centrepiece or display, table names or numbers, two table settings plus place cards etc… everything you would expect to see at a real wedding!  Tables & chairs can be your own but everything else must be upcycled. 

.

Any flowers used in the display must be free (and owning a florist and using your own does not count) so they must be home grown where possible.

.

Any jewellery on the bride and bridesmaids must be made from charity shop finds although you are allowed to de-construct any jewellery bought and make it into something else.

.

So what’s the plan?

.

You have until the end of July to get your “team” together which might consist of a photographer, stationer, florist, jewellery maker, hair and makeup artist, venue dresser, wedding planner, maybe a clever bridal store owner who is a wiz with a sewing machine and someone to model the looks… anyone can have a go!

However, if you are not a wedding industry professional and just fancy getting creative, then that’s perfect too!

.

Throughout August you should start to collect your items between you and then in September your photo shoot should take place.

.

We post the results online and the winner will be chosen by Brides Up North.

.

The winner’s  will receive a very trendy upcycle challenge trophy and their winning looks will be featured on Brides Up North and the All Wrapped Up Events Blog.
