Tying the Knot – Macrame

Macrame as a Wedding Craft Business

Most handcrafted items can be made in many different styles. For example, if you are one of our BH&J Pro students, you will know that a handmade tiara can be made with large diamantes to reflect a glamorous wedding theme, with small pearls arranged in an intricate pattern to complement a romantic theme or with colourful crystals, to be worn at a funky wedding. 

Accessories complementing boho weddings can be made with less common techniques such as macrame. 

Macrame decorations are spot-on trend at the moment. There is a great shift towards sustainability and individuality in the wedding industry. As cotton, linen, hemp and wooden beads are all made of natural materials, couples won’t need to worry that by choosing macrame decor, their wedding might be a burden to the environment.

How to use macrame decorations? The Macrame technique can be used for making bridal jewellery, boho-style headpieces, bridal dress sashes, bridesmaids’ bracelets and other accessories such as wedding ring cushions.

When it comes to wedding venue decorations, you could purchase or make chair sashes, table runners, place settings ornaments, table seating plan frames or even large arches and photography backdrops. Macrame is particularly suitable for making hanging decorations such as flower chandeliers, hanging lanterns and wall decorations. 

Off-white and beige are the most common maracame colours as most macrame decorations have a natural feel. But there is nothing stopping you from adding a splash of colour in the form or colourful ropes or colourful beads.
