14 Monogram Gift Ideas That Will Make the Best Day Ever

** Giveaway inside!

Hi, loves! Emma here. One reason why we’re so in love with handmade weddings is because they’re so detail-obsessed. Each detail in a handcrafted wedding is lovingly pieced together, whether created by your own two hands or lovingly made by a professional artisan. The outcome is a more beautiful and personalized wedding day from start to finish.

One of the easiest ways to add a personal touch to your decor is by using your monogram. Your monogram is your own personal stamp, which can be used throughout including bridal accessories, wedding invitations, favors, decorations, and more. You can use a three-letter monogram (with your initials and first letter of your last name combined together, like mine — EAA) or your last initial (mine — A), whichever you prefer.

Today we’re sharing a handful of our favorite monogram wedding ideas to make your wedding stand out. We’ve found cake toppers, custom cufflinks, decor pieces, and jewelry, with a little something for everyone. There’s even a monogram cowgirl hat for rustic brides! Plus, we’ve teamed up with Advantage Bridal to give away one personalized bridal gift to a lucky reader as our latest wedding giveaways. Find out what it is below!

35 Best Ideas for Succulents in Weddings

Hi, lovelies! Emma here and I’m crazy in love with succulents, especially lately. Aside from my front porch project involving succulents and planter boxes, I’ve been researching these pretties ever since I spotted these. My thumbs finally turned green this weekend (my hydrangeas are winning and my roses are alive and well, thank goodness), I really appreciate how hardy succulents are. Succulents require very little care, so even if you send favors home with guests and they aren’t great gardeners, you can rest assured they’ll still thrive. Plus, you won’t have to worry about succulents wilting through a hot humid wedding reception: they look great all the time!

To inspire you, we’re sharing thirty-five creative succulent wedding ideas. These finds are from all around the web, ranging from bouquets to boutonnieres to wedding decor — even invitations. We’ve found a mix of Real Wedding ideas along with handmade wedding finds. Check them out below along with helpful tips on where to buy succulents for DIY projects. Enjoy!
