Hello, loves! We have an inspirational post on a fun wedding theme to kick up your creativity a notch! Today we’re featuring a favorite classic wedding theme – a silhouette wedding – and showing you how to incorporate handmade wedding ideas into it. Silhouettes (or cameos) are versatile and can be used in nearly any wedding theme. Most commonly is a vintage theme, but we’ve seen rustic, modern, and classic wedding themes with silhouettes used throughout. Today we have a silhouette wedding cake, silhouette lockets for bridesmaid gifts, a guest book alternative, stamps, custom cufflinks, favor tags, and much more. In fact, we’ve rounded up more than twenty-five of the best silhouette wedding finds to inspire you, beginning with a Real Wedding photo that is a must-have on every couple’s list. Enjoy!
