Wedding signs are one of the coolest (and easiest) ways to personalize your ceremony and reception spaces. Most of the time, signs are the easiest thing to add because a sign can stand up on its own or be placed on a simple easel, like this, right at your ceremony or reception entrance. Guests always seem to take notice of signs and couples love them too! We’ve seen couples go crazy over wedding welcome signs, directional signs, signage at the bar (like a signature cocktail sign), chair signs, ceremony aisle signs, and even this fun printable bathroom sign. And while you could place signage throughout your entire wedding space, we recommend just a few. As with most things, just a few will do so you aren’t overwhelming your space.

Beautiful (Faux) Peony Bouquets That Last Forever

by fashion touch weddings

Hi, loves! Emma here. Last summer, I planted peonies in my garden and have waited an entire year to see them finally bloom. And let me tell you, they are gorgeous. Right now, they’re the softest pink and have the sweetest fragrance. I wish they lasted all summer long, but they are only in bloom for a short period of time. I wish I could have these blooms all year long! So, we did some research to find out where you could find fake peony bouquets almost as beautiful as the real thing… and you’re going to love what we’ve discovered from Fashion Touch Weddings! If you’re getting married when peonies are not in season (and you don’t want to pay a ton more for fresh peonies flown in), choose any of these fake peony bouquets to achieve the look you want without the cost. The best part? They will never wilt or die! These bouquets are faux so they’ll last forever and look beautiful on your desk or nightstand in a vase. Take a look and see what I’ve discovered…

How to Decorate with Burlap and Lace

how to decorate weddings with burlap and lace

by ling’s wedding

Hi, loves! Today we’re fielding a new Ask Emmaline question from Jen who wants to know about decorating her wedding with burlap and lace — a popular combination. She asks a question we know other brides are probably wondering, too! ↓

[su_quote cite=”Jen”]

Hi Emmaline! My wedding is rustic and shabby chic. I want to use burlap and lace as decor but I’m not sure where to start. Do I buy a roll from the store and make everything myself? What do you recommend? I am trying mostly DIY projects and need advice. Thank you!


Hi, Jen! Great question. Burlap is a tricky material to work with, even though everywhere you look you see perfectly executed runners, wraps, favors, bouquets, and more. While you certainly can give burlap a solid go with a roll from a craft store (I’ve grabbed some from Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon online for a little savings), I generally don’t recommend it unless you’ve worked with it before. Here’s why: burlap is a tough, strong-smelling fabric that sheds everywhere. And while I love it, your best bet is to use imitation burlap (especially on tables because the smell really is that strong!) OR buy your supplies from a pro burlap designer (who uses both real and faux burlap). For accents like table runners with lace, for example, getting one pre-made is the best route because the designer has worked with it before and will have a custom table runner made to fit your specifications (and table sizes)…
