Weddings Magazine 2011 Issue

I've been waiting and waiting for the 2011 issue of Weddings Magazine to arrive. Since it is not published in this area, only Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and the North Carolina Coast I was pleasently surprised to see the full magazine online and ready to view.

Flipping page after page I finally came upon what I had been waiting for, for months. Megan Hamilton Weddings, Custom Wedding Gown Sketch, has made it in the new issue. Yeah!!

Special thanks to Sam from Bliss by Sam Weddings , Wedding Consultant/ Planner for the Durham, NC area for contacting me and making this happen.

Beaded Beauties

Well it's been quite a while since I have had the time or the inspiration to do some blogging. I am going to try to post something atleast once a week. So here it goes Week #1.

Leave it to Martha Stewart to inspire me. I was browsing through my huge file of clippings from old bridal magazines,"Keep everything" is my motto, you never know when it will come in handy, and I have happened upon some gems that should keep me blogging for a while.

BEADED FLOWERS! Beatiful to look at and a unique way to make something specail for your wedding that will stand the test of time. Your beaded bouquet can become the "something old" for the next generation.

(Clipping is from an old issue of Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine)
See first hand how to make these beaded beauties at

For those of us with no time or patience check out this etsy shop Budding Creations for her awesome beaded bouquets. Very reasonable prices and she's even having a Holiday Sale until Nov 30th.

My Sketchbook

I thought it might be nice to showcase my Sketchbook of Custom Bridal Gown sketches and Bridal Gown and Tuxedo sketches I have done over the past few years. I will add more sketches as time goes on.

Please note the sketches you see are not my original designs. These are representations of designer gowns. If you are interested in having a sketch done of your gown please check out my web site Megan Hamilton Weddings. I would be more than happy to work with you to create a keepsake of your own.

Custom Wedding Gown Sketches make great gifts for: The Bride-to-be, Anniversary's, Valentine's Day, Birthday's or just because.

The Kindness of Strangers

I have been lucky since the start of my business that I have had pretty excellent feedback from friends and family. Of course, you often wonder, are they just saying all that because they've known you for years or are blood related.

Well, this morning I recieved an e-mail from a fellow designer from Rangoli Jewellery in Dublin, Ireland of all places. She wrote to let me know that she had blogged about my Custom Wedding gown sketches.

It's always nice to get feedback from strangers and is definately a great way to start your morning read through of e-mails.

To show my appreciation I wanted to say thanks through my blog. So please check out
