Hi, loves! It’s the weekend, but we know that doesn’t mean your wedding planning comes to a halt. That’s why we wanted to keep the fun going with this inspiring feature on wedding silhouettes. But first, what is a silhouette? A silhouette is “the dark shape and outline of someone or something visible against a lighter background, especially in dim light”, according to the dictionary.

Today we’re exploring three fun and easy ways to use silhouettes in weddings as a 1) guest book (or guest book alternative), 2) chair decor, and 3) cake topper. Read on to see how they’re used with charming finds from Simply Silhouettes, which offers a plethora of wedding silhouettes and cameos. Enjoy!
