If your guests are a fun group of partygoers (like ours were), they will certainly appreciate this interactive idea! We spotted these wedding advice mad libs over at Cami’s Paperie and love the creativity behind it. Instead of a traditional guest book (where guests write their names and a short ‘congrats!’, guests fill out the mad libs card — WITHOUT PEEKING! — and the result is hilarious memories and priceless sentiments from your most favorite people. You can then hole-punch the sides and arrange in a binder or place in a scrapbook to re-read the hilarity for years to come. Check them out!

Do you love watercolor so much that you’re tying it into your wedding theme? I can’t say I blame you… after all, watercolor is one of the largest emerging wedding trends and can incorporate any color of which you dream. So, when our pal Meagan over at Tying The Knots wanted to offer a set of watercolor wedding invitations or save the dates to one lucky EB reader, it’s safe to say we may or may not have tossed confetti in the air. After all, the first step after picking your perfect wedding theme (as I mention in this fantastic, almost-ready-to-be-released guide) is to set the tone with a save the date card or wedding invitation. And, getting them for free? Well, that’s pretty awesome. This giveaway — #22 in our huge 31 wedding giveaways series for August — happens for one week only and has a hefty $200 prize value. So, grab a cup of coffee, read on to see some of our faves, and toss your name in the hat for a chance to win yours!

My birthday is a few days away and this year, I’m getting inked — relax, it’s only temporary. I love those sweet little tattoos you see popping up everywhere: you know the kind, the tiny black heart, infinity symbol, ampersand, ‘love’ — but I’m way too scared to ink it for real. Ouch, you guys, and talk about commitment. That is forever-ever. Marriage is forever, too, but when you’ve found the right person (I have!), marriage forever = the best thing ever. Tattoos, not so much, if you’re like me anyway. For instance, I said to Andrew, “If I got a heart tattoo, I’d put it right here“, showing him the underside of my wrist. So, for a week, I used black marker and drew on the cutest little black heart. It took, eh, maybe three days until I was all, “GET THIS OFF OF ME” so at least I know temporary tattoos are more my style. When I did a little investigative research into cute, non-kid-like temporary tattoos, I was very impressed, even more so at the temporary wedding tattoos I found, which I’m super excited to share with you today. So, if you’re planning to freak out your parents just a little bit with a freshly-inked (temp) tattoo pre-wedding (don’t do that), want to do a trial run to see how you’ll probably get tired of the same design when you’re ninety-five (or not, which is cool, too), or paint the town red with your gal pals and matching tats (even just for the night), you’ll want to get inked with these beautiful temporary wedding tattoos. Check ‘em out!

It’s time for another Ask Emmaline question, this time from bride-to-be, Sarah. She says, “I am having a rustic outdoor wedding and love the idea of a welcome sign or direction signs for our ceremony and reception. Do you have any ideas for unique wood wedding signs that might work?” Actually, we happen to have a whole lotta love for wood wedding signs — the shabbier + more rustic, the better! To keep it simple (and not overwhelm you), we’ve hand-picked eight wedding signs to share today. Which one is your favorite?

Do you love the look of ribbons on the backs of chairs, but you a) don’t want to spend hours doing it, and you b) don’t want to spend gobs of money on ribbon that will, essentially, be used for mere minutes? You’ve come to the right place! I love the look myself, but you won’t catch me cutting, knotting, and tying ribbons to the backs of over fifty-some backs of chairs. As Sweet Brown would say, Ain’t nobody got time for that. Instead, try this easy wedding hack: tie ribbons on the backs of chairs IN THE LAST ROW ONLY. Makes sense, no?

If I had to pick a giveaway that I (Emma here) would love to win, it would be this pair of tiny heart earrings. Although all of the giveaways have been supremely awesome so far, I’ve had my eye on these petite gold heart earrings for some time. They’re handmade by the talented Andrea Bonelli and they’re up for grabs to one lucky reader! Will it be you?

Whatever the reason, today we’re inspiring you to get creative with your heart-adoring self and steal these twenty-one heart themed wedding ideas.
