Hello, lovelies! It’s Friday, you’re ready to party, and we’ve found just the thing for your bar! This wedding cocktails sign and napkins are the cutest thing we’ve seen in a long time for reception bars. So cute, in fact, you’ll want to re-use it in your own bar at home. We spotted them over at Laura Hooper Calligraphy, the pro when it comes to calligraphy everything. (P.S. She’ll even teach you how to do calligraphy!) The sign is hand-lettered and measures 8″ x 10″. Take a peek!
If you ask any wedding etiquette expert, he or she would tell you hand-addressing your wedding invitations is a must. Traditionally, hand-writing or calligraphy is used to address invitations because it looks more polished than a printed label and adds a personalized touch. This means you can either a) hire a calligrapher, or b) give it a go by hand-addressing it all yourself. But what if you have trouble addressing invitations in a straight line? Don’t worry — we just found the super easy way to address invitations in a straight line thanks to The Lettermate!
Address Envelopes in Straight Lines
The Lettermate is created as “an envelope addressing guide for those of us that have trouble writing in a straight line.” Which, let’s be honest, is pretty much most of us. It’s not just about writing in a straight line, though: it’s a plastic guide that is designed to give you a consistent and evenly spaced lines every time.
Meet Theresa and Matthew! Their wedding was magnificent and you are sure to enjoy it. Dennis from Dennis Drenner Photographs tells us, “Theresa and Matt’s wedding was pure Baltimore. From their ceremony at the hundreds of years old St. Ignatius, to their reception on the harbor at the Museum of Industry, this Maryland couple celebrated their hometown along with their love. And the city returned the favor with perfect weather.”
Hi, lovelies! Emma here. When real bride, Cady, emailed us with a wedding decor question, we couldn’t wait to swoop in to help. She writes,
“There is a white wall behind my head table and it looks so bare. I know we’ll want photos taken of us during dinner, speeches, etc. Do you have any suggestions for what I can do to decorate it easily? I’m not very skilled at DIYs. Thank you!”Cady
Great question, Cady! There are many backdrops which come to mind, but my favorite and the easiest suggestion is a paper flower backdrop. Paper flowers are incredibly versatile. They can…
1) be customized in size: either big enough to cover a giant wall, such as a head table
2) tie into any wedding theme from vintage to modern (based on type of paper used, i.e. newspaper or book pages for vintage; brightly-colored or patterned paper for modern weddings)
3) incorporate your color palette with ease
4) be used as a chic photo booth backdrop
5) be re-used after the big day as home or office decor
And since you mentioned that you’re not a huge DIY fan, you’ll be relieved to know that THESE paper flowers are handmade for you by PaperFlora, so you can let Natalie take care of the beautiful flower-making! All you have to do is order your custom colors, styles, and sizes; and then assemble them on your wall! It’s the easiest way to get a chic and stylish backdrop which will make your wedding reception pop.
If you haven’t ordered boutonnieres for your fall wedding, you’re in luck! We’ve found five which your groomsmen will love to wear. These boutonnieres are special: they’re handcrafted without the use of fresh flowers, so you don’t have to keep them cool (or worry about them wilting). They’ll look perfect for photos all day and all night — plus, they’ll last forever. We spotted these boutonnieres over at The Sunny Bee and I was instantly smitten with the pine cone bout shown below. I think it is my #1 top pick for fall boutonnieresever. Quite a tall order, no? Take a look and you’ll see why!
