Elizabeth and Darcy Wedding Invitation

Ah, love. Sweet, literary love. We are avid fans of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and adore this Elizabeth and Darcy wedding invitation suite by Borrowed & Blue. If you’re planning a book themed wedding or one filled to the brim with romance, silhouettes, and love, this is the wedding invitation for you. It looks like it could have come straight from Pemberley.

“In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed.
You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
-Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

How to Make Your Ceremony Programs Pop

Hello, brides! We love when artisans break the mold when it comes to traditional wedding ideas. Ceremony programs, for instance, can be skipped altogether or a little bit boring… or, you can choose to make it better. Personally, we prefer the latter and we’ve found one awesome way to do it! Today we’re showing you how to make your ceremony program pop with custom bridal party illustrations by the lovely Paper Maids. No boring ceremony programs here! Paper Maids uses custom bridal party illustrations to bring your entire crew to life, right down to the bridesmaid dress, groomsmen suit, hair color, skin color, facial features, and more. If I were a bridesmaid and the couple ordered one of these bridal party illustrations, you bet I’d be saving the program after the wedding… maybe even framing it! Read on to find out more…

Ivory Dress Sash with Lace

Handmade weddings are all about adding personal touches throughout your event. One of our favorite places to start with personalization is the wedding gown. Even the most simple gown can be customized to suit your style with a custom dress sash. Today, we’re showcasing the ivory dress sash with lace spotted at the always lovely Fancie Strands. This dress sash has it all: it features ivory lace, semi-sheer ivory chiffon, sparkly Swarovski crystals, rhinestones, and a gorgeous floral piece. Each flower petal is hand-cut and the flower itself measures 4 1/2 inches. The lace – our favorite part! – is ivory embossed floral lace and measures 7 inches on either side of the flower with a satin ribbon tie. This dress sash is also available in white.

Calla Lily Earrings

I love calla lilies, the epitome of sunny spring + summer weddings! If you’re tying in this pretty flower throughout your wedding, consider gifting bridesmaids (+ yourself) with a pair of calla lily earrings. These earrings, handmade by Rustic Gem, are both elegant and feminine. We love the addition of the blue accent for the bride’s something blue, which the bridesmaids can opt for a black accent or blue to match the bride. Earrings measure 2.5 inches long from the bottom of the backing to the bottom of the calla lily piece. Each earring is on a silver (or gold) plated leverback earwire; sterling silver upgrade available upon request for additional cost.

Guest Book Fingerprint Tree

Hello, hello! Are you looking for a fun guest book your friends and family will want to sign? Do you want your guest book to actually become a work of art to display in your love nest, rather than sitting on a shelf gathering dust? Today’s post is for you! We spotted this incredible guest book fingerprint tree by The Ink Lab and it is one of our favorite guest book alternatives yet. Instead of signing a line in a book, guests have the opportunity to add their unique fingerprint onto a branch of a tree to create a leaf. Once the ink is dry, the guest signs his or her name above the fingerprint. The print features a blank tree to begin, but soon after guests start adding their prints you’ll see the tree come to life with bright and vibrant leaf prints created by guests. After the wedding, frame your guest book fingerprint tree and display in your home. What a beautiful idea (+ an awesome keepsake).
