This week I am loving bohemian dream catchers! These gorgeously romantic creations are usually made from a flexible willow hoop which supports a woven web of cotton, twine or wool, often strung with beads, feathers and crystals.

Dream catchers originated within Native American tribes and the native term for these enchanting items means ‘dream snare’. Dream catchers represent unity and the filtering out of bad dreams. It is thought that as dreams pass through the web, only pleasant ones are able to complete the journey. Can you imagine anything more perfectly suited to a wedding day!

Being so beautiful and easy to make, dream catchers lend themselves well to incorporation within your wedding day setup. They can be used as decoration, printed on wedding stationery, as jewellery or as favours for your guests.

If you’re keen to include dream catchers at your wedding, why not get your best girls together for a crafty evening and ask each of them to make their own dream catcher. You can use the resulting creations as highly personal venue decoration, and they double up as beautiful keepsakes to treasure once the big day has taken place.
