Brides: whether you’re reciting traditional vows or personalizing your own, you’ll love this sweet idea: your personalized wedding vows as wall art! B is for Brown can turn your sweetest, most heartfelt (and sometimes hilarious) vows into a personalized wedding vow keepsake, suitable for framing and displaying in your home after the big day. This is a fantastic gift idea even if you’re reciting traditional vows at your wedding; instead, you can have these custom vows printed up and displayed at your reception for guests to read. And, while these vows will encompass your deep, sincere feelings, don’t be afraid to include a few fun and personal details, like “I promise not to hog the remote”, “I’ll try not to steal the covers”, or “I promise to sip your cocoa first to make sure it isn’t too hot for you”. One of my favorites: “Try to remember to turn down the volume on the TV when it gets too loud”. It’s fun to personalize your own! If I had to choose one, mine would say, “I promise to cover you in a blanket when you fall asleep on the couch”. I asked my husband to contribute his and his answer was… “I promise to rub your feet when you’ve had a long day.” (I know. He’s a total charmer.) OK, we’ve shared ours… what would yours say?

Hello, loves! Happy Tuesday! Today we’re showcasing one of my favorite wedding details: the custom wedding map. I never knew of these while planning my own wedding, but I wish I had! These hand-drawn maps make a sweet sentiment suitable for framing after the big day. A custom map is a visual that can show guests more about the area where you’re tying the knot. You can even add personal touches like the place you had your first date, where he proposed, or a favorite must-visit spot for out-of-towners to check out. You can include your custom wedding map as an enclosure with your wedding invitations. Read on to see more…
