Here is some insight into the Better of Wed Business and samples of their lovely work:
++ What was your inspiration for getting in the wedding industry?
- I never dreamed I’d become a professional artist & designer. In fact, I started my career as a labor union organizer! — but planning my own off-grid, unconventional wedding inspired me to get into a studio & start crafting with my hands.
++ How long have you been working in this business?
- Better Off Wed was born out of the romance & wild excitement of my own DIY wedding — and in less than a year, it’s bloomed into a profitable business — attracting thousands of sales, dozens of media mentions, blog profiles in Style Me Pretty, Brides.com, Green Wedding Shoes and even a shout-out in Martha Stewart Living Magazine, as one of the best wedding cake toppers of 2012.
++ Can you tell me more about your products?
- We offer an array of cake toppers. Including ones that are personalized for each couple and then pre made designs. We label our toppers: Whimsical, Classic, Big Heart, Banner, and ready to ship! All for a unique cake topper for your wedding!
++ What goes into the creative process for you?
- My creative process? My husband calls me “the tornado,” if that gives you any idea. I love plunging into all-out, full-on, crazy-town work sessions where I get messy, spread my materials everywhere and dig in for hours & hours. For my Better Off Wed cake toppers, I sketch out my ideas on paper first, then design them in adobe illustrator, laser-cut the wood and fabric, and (finally!) piece it all together by hand. A lot of time, love and attention goes into each and every piece. And I'm pretty sure it shows.
++ What sets you a part from other wedding vendors?
- At Better Off Wed, I design one-of-a-kind heirloom wedding cake toppers made from laser-cut wood & fabric. Each piece is lovingly-crafted by me in the heart of northern California.
++ What is the most full filling part about the process?
- I genuinely believe that you can design the life, career + relationship of your dreams.
- Each wedding cake topper serves as a keepsake for generations to come — and can be transformed into a bespoke objet d'art, a framed wall adornment, or even a holiday tree ornament. Best of all — each token arrives in a custom gift box, perfectly-packaged + ready to tote along to your wedding venue. Hello, sweet romance!
++ Thanks so much, Better of Wed ++
