3D Printing a Wedding: Saves Money and Incorporates Personality

Date:2019-02-28 Hits:
Planning a wedding isn’t simple – especially these days, when everyone wants to do something different, something no one else has ever done before. Everyone wants to put their own personal touch on their weddings, making them a celebration of the unique personalities of the couple being married. 
 
For Erin Winick, however, putting a unique spin on her wedding was also a way to save money. Winick is a huge fan of 3D printing and has two desktop printers of her own, which she used to 3D print everything for her wedding that she possibly could, including her headband, her bouquet and her bridesmaids’ bouquets, the reception table numbers, the cake topper and floral cake decorations, and the flower girl’s necklace.
 

“Whenever there was a choice between making and buying something, I went for the 3D-printing option,” Winick says. “…Like many other DIY and hobbyist projects, it allowed for a deep connection to the things I created. 3D-printed items have a personal touch you don’t get from purchasing something at the store.”
 
  
 
“I pulled the models of the tulips for the bouquets and cake decorations, and the Lego Minifig cake toppers, off Thingiverse,” she says. “I adapted this model of a leaf created and uploaded by A 3D-printer company to make my headband. Lastly, I designed the flower girl’s necklace and all my table numbers from scratch in engineering modeling software, SolidWorks.”
 
The bouquets were what took her the longest to 3D print, involving approximately 200 flowers printed from blue and glow in the dark filament. She worked on the bouquets after work and on weekends, spending more than 100 hours over the course of several months. Once all the flowers had been 3D printed, Winick attached them to styrofoam balls. 
 
 
Actually Winick isn’t the only one to think of saving money and adding personal touches to a wedding through 3D printing. There are numerous wedding-related models available on the site, including everything from cake toppers and centerpieces to the wedding rings themselves.  That’s what the maker movement as a whole is about, after all – not only saving money but creating and doing for oneself.
