Custom DIY Bridal + Bridesmaid Jewelry | Beading Buds Toronto

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!! and Happy New Year!!

I hope all of you had a beautiful holiday season, and now it’s back to reality for most of us: work, school, life… and planning some fabulous I Do’s!

Today’s blog post is about something unique and creative I’d never heard of before, and now that I know about it, I’m completely excited to share the idea with all of you! A WeddingGirl.ca reader recently contacted me to tell me about an emerging trend in the bachelorette party and bridal shower world developed by Beading Buds, a traveling jewelry making party! They are located in the GTA and deliver parties to Hamilton, Guelph, Georgetown, Milton, Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga, Port Credit, Streetsville, Brampton, Etobicoke,Toronto, North York, Vaughan, Woodbridge, Thornhill, Richmond Hill and Newmarket!

{what is a jewelry-making party?}

A jewelry-making party is the perfect solution for bachelorette parties for brides that would prefer to spend a cozy and fabulous night-in making beautiful cusom-designed jewelry while bonding with their girlfriends and family. It’s ideal for bridal showers as a fun activity for the guests who will love creating one-of-a-king jewelry (rather than parting with the same, generic, shower favours!) — all your guests get to take home what they make!

{what is Beading Buds?}

Beading Buds is like having a bead store come to your home or event venue to assist you and your guests in making your very own jewelry. They bring hundreds of beautiful glass beads, a wide choice of sterling silver-plated clasps, instructors, and all the tools necessary to make your creations. They assist you in picking your beads and designing and creating your own piece. The company originally started out as a birthday party entertainer for kids, and in the last few years has expanded to doing adult birthday parties, corporate events, holiday parties, bachelorette parties, and bridal showers!

Another amazing service that Beading Buds offers is for brides to have a Bridal Jewelry-making party. A Designer works with you prior to the party to design the jewelry to be worn by the bride and bridesmaids using pearls, Swarovski crystals, and semi-precious stones. Together, they create stunning, custom jewelry that is truly one-of-a-kind! They bride, along with her bridesmaids, mothers of the bride and groom, and family members, can get together for a great night of food, drinks, laughs, and creating the jewelry they will all be wearing on the Big Day! (The designer who assisted in the initial design will be on site to assist and to make sure everyone has a piece of jewelry they love and will be proud to wear!)

– what better way is there to celebrate the bride and the upcoming wedding?? AND it also makes a fabulous Thank You gift to the members of your bridal party!

WG bride, Gillian, had custom-designed jewelry made for her bridesmaids!
