What’s the hottest new wedding trend in decor? Tassel garland! And where can you find it? Ellenor Shop! We spotted these festive tassel garland strands there and we love what we found. These particular tassel garlands are made with lightweight plastic (not than tissue paper), which means it’s less fragile than tissue, more durable for multiple uses/parties, and waterproof. We spotted amazing combinations: hot pink + gold. Black tie tassels. Plum tassel garland with sparkly accents. Hang ‘em up as a photo booth backdrop, decorate your cake table, draw attention to your sweetheart table, or use as decoration anywhere you see fit. Also makes a lovely accent for your bridal shower or bachelorette party. Read on to see our favorites…

Modern, fun-loving brides: this post is for you! Emma here… and I’ve gotta say, I love cake toppers of all shapes and sizes, but cut-out cake toppers with words are my absolute favorite! Instead of the traditional ‘Mr + Mrs’, monogram, or wedding date, think outside the box with phrases like ‘Eat Cake‘, ‘In This Forever‘, ‘Best Day Ever‘, ‘For Like Ever‘, or even, ‘Whoop Whoop‘. I mean, it’s the biggest day of your life, so you might as well spell out how you feel about making it official! We’ve browsed the interwebs and searched high + low to find the best cake toppers around. See which toppers made the cut and tell us which one you love!

Hi, lovelies! Happy, happy Friday! Emma here. A few years ago, chalkboards started sneaking into ceremony and reception decor across the globe. Before we knew it, engaged couples and wedding planners were all, ‘chalkboard all of the things!’, and chalkboard labels, bridesmaid chalkboard signs, table numbers, signs, menus, and chalkboard props for engagement photos became the norm. And, while it seemed like just a trend (you know, like mason jars), chalkboards stuck around! For good! Today, we’re bringing you a fresh supply of chalkboard wedding ideas that we know you’ll love. There are twenty-one handpicked finds in all that may surprise you, since they’re totally chic and elegant enough for your wedding day. We’ve found chair signs, cocktail napkins, favors, a welcome sign, save the date, invitation, photo booth backdrop, and much more… even a chalkboard wedding cake! (It’s quite amazing, to be perfectly honest.) So, if you’re hoping to be inspired today, you’ve come to the right place… let’s get started, shall we?

One of our favorite handcrafted details for a wedding bar is a bespoke coaster. We’ve seen coasters given as wedding favors, used as escort cards, printed with a thank you message to wedding guests, and used as a unique advice guest book alternative, just to name a few ideas. A coaster is a conversation starter for guests and offers functionality as a drink ‘saver’ or label, as well as to protect a tabletop. As a drink saver, guests can place a coaster above the rim of their glass to signify the drink is still being consumed so it is not bussed. And, as a label, guests can identify a drink as theirs by writing their name on it (these are one example). A wedding coaster can also be used just as a festive addition to your decor. To inspire your reception, we’ve rounded up fifteen creative wedding coaster ideas below. Take a peek and let us know if you plan to use wedding coasters and, if so, tell us what yours will say!

We love the trend and today we’re sharing some of our favorite (read: most creative) wedding hoop ideas. Once we started our search for hoop art finds, we couldn’t help but share a plethora of them.
