In our last post, we explored how you can design a custom wedding ring and have it printed by an expert jeweller, utilizing 3D printing. If you enjoyed that article and your wedding is in the near future, then you may be interested in learning about 3D printed accessories to feature on your big day.
There is great appeal in using 3D printing to craft personalised wedding accessories. Speaking to Co Design, Lauren Slowik of 3D printing company Shapeways explains:
“People are very motivated to make a splash and make something personal but the ability to do that at a scale, even at a small wedding, can be daunting. Finishing tying all the bows on mason jars can turn into a time suck. When you try to make your wedding personal, it can be overwhelming. What’s cool about 3D printing is you can have an influence on every part of the design, and it’s scalable–if you need more custom napkin rings, it won’t end your life. You can focus on the fun stuff.”
Print your Engagement ring, print your Wedding Ring
We’ve learned previously that you can now print your fiancé’s engagement ring for a unique reminder of the big day. If you were inspired by that idea, you may also like to consider printing your own engagement rings. All you have to do is sketch out your dream ring and send the original sketches to jewellery makers with access to a 3D printer.
Would you print your dress with a 3D printer?
In a throwback post, we explored how 3D printing was advancing the fashion industry with its complex, futuristic designs and unusual materials. Wearing a 3D-printed wedding dress, custom-made to suit your own personal style, will be similar to wearing a couture piece on the catwalk. You simply won’t see another dress like it.
However, 3D printed dresses can be expensive to make, as they are often time-consuming to produce. Additionally, they are often crafted from less comfortable and more delicate materials than the traditional wedding dress.
If you’re interested in designing and printing your own dress then choose your design and materials carefully. Alternatively, you may opt to wear an impressive 3D-printed design for your long walk down the aisle, and then change into a more comfortable, dance-friendly gown for your meal and celebrations.
You can also like to look into printing your own accessories. A pretty hair piece or button pin will look totally original if you use 3D printing to create your designs.
