3 Easy Ways to Choose Your Save the Date
(+ Giveaway!)

Are you engaged and ready to share the news, but you’re not sure how to choose your save the date? We’re here to help! While save the dates are not required, we definitely recommend sending them. A save the date — sent four to six months before your wedding — does the following: it serves as an official announcement, shares your excitement, and gives your guests advance notice to make travel arrangements, if necessary. It also lets guests know they’re on the list so they can save the date on their calendar. (Note: If your wedding is out-of-state or on a holiday weekend, a save the date is a must.) Today we’re showing you just how easy it is to pick save the date cards with some new designs by Paper Street Press. We’re also offering a giveaway with Paper Street Press that will make sending your save the date cards, invitations, and more SO MUCH EASIER. See? Mondays aren’t so bad. :) Read on to find out more!

Welcome to Lily and Tim’s rustic barn wedding! The awesome couple was married this past fall at Eddie Adam’s Farm in the Catskill Mountains. Their wedding was full of handmade details and personalized touches. They included the bride’s paper bouquet along with its custom bouquet charm. Another neat and eye-catching idea was the “LOVE” monogram guest book. For their reception decor they used distressed picture frames to hold family photos and signage. Table centerpieces included books, tin tea boxes, and mason jars filled with purple flowers and baby’s breath. Stephanie Naru Photography did a wonderful job capturing this beautiful and fun couple.

25 Best Outdoorsy Groom / Groomsmen Ideas

Emma here! Tell me if this sounds familiar. Your fiancé loves fishing. He hunts (or he goes to a cabin and drinks with his buddies, ha). His ideal day might include hiking, mountain climbing, mountain biking, hunting, or camping — pretty much anything related to being out in the woods, on a river, in a rustic cabin, or on a mountain. He can easily build an awesome fire like it’s no big deal, has a natural affinity of woodworking, and mowing the lawn or general outdoor yard work doesn’t bother him in the least (because at least he gets to be outside). He might have a boat, on which he takes fishing trips on the weekend or for a Saturday afternoon and gives it a clever name; he also brings back some seriously awesome catches because it comes naturally to him. He might have a beard — or, he doesn’t, but he rocks some pretty awesome stubble on the weekend. And he probably owns at least one flannel shirt and a favorite pair of very worn-in jeans.

If any of these sound familiar, you are about to marry a true outdoorsman, a guy who loves to be surrounded by nature, go on adventures, and explore the great outdoors. And you’re lucky because if you’re not outdoorsy yet, you will be soon enough — or you’ll at least discover an appreciation for new hobbies you can do together (i.e. kayaking, hiking in the woods, or rustic camping, all of which I’ve acquired as wife to Andrew). You’ll also notice that with your outdoorsy groom, he has probably picked a crew of outdoorsy groomsmen who happen to hone the same hobbies as he. Today We’re tackling some of our favorite attire ideas, beard tamers, outdoor groomsmen gifts, reception ideas, and more, all for that adventure-seeking dude you love oh-so-much (and his pals). In this post, we’ll show you how to apply some of the best outdoors-themed wedding ideas for your big day to surprise him. Enjoy!

Coloring Guest Book: A Fun Idea for Weddings

color it in guest book

by forever heyday

Have you heard about the latest adult coloring book craze? (You know, Ryan Gosling or Unicorns are Jerks, or even Swoon? Those are the fun ones. You’ve probably seen this in stores, but I’ll admit, there are plenty of hilarious ones out there.) My high school English teacher used to swear by color therapy as a way to de-stress, encouraging us to bring crayons and paper for her lectures. She would even stop class sometimes to admire someone’s work. And now, some years later, it’s the big new thing. Now, I don’t really color (who has time?!) but I do chase around my toddler who loves to get his hands on crayons or markers and draw on anything, and I admit I have filled in a page or two of his beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles book (so it counts). So when I heard coloring was a fun new trend at weddings, you bet I got on board. This coloring guest book sounds like a great way to get guests to mingle and leave you with a truly unique piece of art. And let’s face it, guests have scribbled in the same old guest book a hundred times before. It’s time to mix it up a little… and this coloring guest book from Forever Heyday is one way to do it! Take a look!
