boulder_mountains_engagement_session_searching_for_the_light_photography_3

Katie and Ben’s Boulder Colorado mountain engagement session was awe-inspiring! Today’s featured couple met up with photographer Emmy, from Searching for the Light Photography, to take these amazing photographs. Emmy tells us, “We originally planned to go to Boulder and hike near the flatirons but the sun creeps behind the canyon so early in the day we had to find another spot. Thankfully I had two in mind because as I was driving to the first location, the second had its gates closed, literally. But man did we definitely not need two locations because this Colorado mountain was so gorgeous!” See the photo and hear from the bride…

Hi, lovelies! Emma here. If you have assigned seats at your wedding (which we wholeheartedly recommend), you’ll need escort cards. Escort cards are used to direct guests to their seats and typically include the guest’s name and table number. And while escort cards are technically called cards, we think it’s fun when the “cards” are something unique instead. Today we’re sharing ten creative escort card ideas we know you’ll love to prove you can think outside the box in *every* area of your wedding. Enjoy!

Why a Regular Guest Book is Still #1 for Weddings

Hi, lovelies! Emma here and I’m so excited to be kicking off a brand new week with all of you. And to start this week off right, we’re helping you cross “guest book” from your to-do list. We’ve talked about some really fun and interesting guest book alternatives in the past, but did you know that a regular guest book — you know, a simple book with pages and lines for guests to write their names — is still the top pick for couples? It’s true! A regular guest book (aka classic or traditional book) is easy for guests to do, it’s affordable, and it is easy to store at home on a bookshelf or on your coffee table. Some of the guest book alternatives we see today involve a lot of steps for guests to follow; sometimes, they’ll end up skipping it altogether. With a classic guest book, guests simply sign their name and that’s it! To show you what we mean, we’re sharing some beautiful guest books from Crafty Pie Press and, while they are technically a “regular” guest book, they’re anything but ordinary. These designs are some of the most beautiful we’ve ever seen! Read on to see ten of our top picks from their collection!

Fun Idea → Beer Tasting Wedding Shower for Couples

by dea and bean

Hi, lovelies! If a traditional bridal shower isn’t your thing, consider a couples shower instead! A couples shower is where men and women are invited together to party and celebrate the happy couple. Today we’re sharing one of our favorite ideas: a beer tasting couples shower. This is a great way to toast the happy couple, mingle, and get acquainted with some fun new craft brews. This is a great shower idea, but works extremely well, too, for a joint bachelor and bachelorette party. Or, it makes a great reason to throw a party for a groomsmen / bridesmaid get together so everyone can get acquainted before the wedding. If there will be non-drinkers, we encourage you to include root beers in the mix — there are a surprisingly large number of different root beers to sample. Just check your local grocery store! Okay, on to the inspiration!
