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.

Silhouette Chair Signs

I’ll never know what it is that fascinates me so about chair signs. But, alas, I’ve found yet another that has stolen my heart. These gold-framed silhouette chair signs are all kinds of lovely, especially the gold framing and the black-and-white profile print. I would recommend these chair signs for a vintage wedding theme, particularly one that incorporates rich pops of gold. What I love most about these silhouette chair signs is the ability to use them again as charming home decor. How’s that for money well spent?

I Belong With You Chair Sign

Posted March 12, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

We’ve all heard the song, “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers by now. You know, the one that goes, “I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my sweethearrrttt…” I mean, I can pretty much bet money that every time I’m in the car there is a 50/50 chance that I’ll hear it. So, when I spotted this I Belong With You chair sign set over at Host & Toast Studio, I knew I couldn’t keep it to myself. Instead of a traditional bow, ribbon, or Mr. and Mrs. sign, give this version a try: it tells everyone ‘you’re my sweetheart’.

I Belong With You Chair Sign - Inspired by Ho Hey by The Lumineers, this set of chair signs reads, 'I belong with you' and 'You belong with me'.  By Host and Toast Studio.
