8 Remarkably Unique Wedding Prints by Theme

September 4, 2014 Leave a Comment

When people ask us about the best engagement gift ideas, I can’t help but mention wedding prints as one of them. Customization is at the heart of a wedding — particularly handmade weddings — and personalized wedding art prints makes perfect sense. Artwork is a functional gift, which can be framed and displayed in the home of the newlyweds for years to come. A personalized wedding print can also be used as a makeshift guest book, onto which guests sign around the edges at the reception. (A guest book on the wall? You’ll definitely look at it more than a closed book on your shelf!) Today we are introducing eight of our favorite new wedding prints by theme by the talented Michael Dexter Design. But we want to know: which one is perfect for your big day?

Groom’s Impressive Wedding Day Dance is Viral Hit

September 3, 2014 Leave a Comment

Today we’re sharing this entertaining, well-choreographed surprise wedding dance from the groomsmen to the bride. I’ve seen my share of videos in the past, but this wedding dance really stole my 90’s (and early 00’s) heart: Backstreet Boys, Destiny’s Child, and Beyoncé and Jay-Z were a few of the popular song choices they selected. And, unlike other wedding dances of its kind, this is one of epic proportions: the groomsmen are well-dressed, lighting and sound are top notch, the bride is surprised (and elated), and it looks like the crew really practiced to get the steps just right. Plus, this video isn’t overly silly, dorky, cheesy, or serious. Wait until you see what the groom does at the end! Sidebar: the

Have you seen this show on BBC called Sherlock? It’s pretty amazing, in so far as detective shows go.

But what we loved most was the vintage silhouette cake which totally stole the show. We’ve seen an awesome silhouette wedding cake in the past, but this, um, takes the cake. Read on to see it!
