    When you’re planning a handcrafted wedding, you know how awesome it is to find unique, creative ideas for re-purposing ordinary, daily things.

    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?
