Are you ready for another amazing giveaway? Today we’ve teamed up with the lovely Lauren of LoRustique to offer this rustic card box to one lucky reader. If you’re planning a rustic, vintage, or shabby chic wedding, this card box will fit the bill. It is made with wood and is distressed with white paint for that old, been-sitting-in-an-antique-shop look and has a piece of lace embellished on the front. Take a closer look:

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?

There are so many amazing wedding themes out there (speaking of, have you seen this yet?) but heart wedding ideas are often overlooked.

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. Read on for more… plus, you could win won of these heart themed wedding ideas from Harvest Gold Gallery, Giveaway #19 in our 31 Giveaways Series! Enjoy!

Up first, take a look at these adorable heart chair backs! Oh, and I may or may not be partial to this as the first selection because of the huge E & A (you know, me + hubby) on the back wall. Where was this for my own wedding?

One of our favorite parts of handmade weddings? The decor! There are so many creative twists on traditional items that we’ve been finding lately. We especially love when artists make keepsake-quality items you can use long after the wedding is over. For instance, this wedding card box suitcase over at PNZ Designs can be used to hold cards from guests, guest book notes, or pop open the suitcase and use it as a creative escort card display. The front is embellished with your monogram, etched in wood and stained to perfection. Love, love, love.

Read on to see what you need to make the must-have wedding decor for summer + fall rustic weddings (and how it’s made in under 5 minutes). Enjoy!
Here’s the inspiration…

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!
