If you’re planning a rustic, vintage, or shabby chic wedding, this card box will fit the bill.

If your guests are a fun group of partygoers (like ours were), they will certainly appreciate this interactive idea! We spotted these wedding advice mad libs over at Cami’s Paperie and love the creativity behind it. Instead of a traditional guest book (where guests write their names and a short ‘congrats!’, guests fill out the mad libs card — WITHOUT PEEKING! — and the result is hilarious memories and priceless sentiments from your most favorite people. You can then hole-punch the sides and arrange in a binder or place in a scrapbook to re-read the hilarity for years to come. Check them out!

It’s time for another Ask Emmaline question, this time from bride-to-be, Sarah. She says, “I am having a rustic outdoor wedding and love the idea of a welcome sign or direction signs for our ceremony and reception. Do you have any ideas for unique wood wedding signs that might work?” Actually, we happen to have a whole lotta love for wood wedding signs — the shabbier + more rustic, the better! To keep it simple (and not overwhelm you), we’ve hand-picked eight wedding signs to share today. Which one is your favorite?

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.

Hello, hello! It’s time for another fantastic giveaway, #16 in our 31 Wedding Giveaways series! And, might I add, it’s a good one. (But really, they’re all pretty amazing, no?) We’ve teamed up with Rachel of Peachtree Lane to offer a secret message locket to one lucky reader. This locket opens and has enough room for a small, folded, sweetly-written note for yourself or a loved one. You can keep a special date close to your heart or use it as a cute way to ask, ‘Be My Bridesmaid‘. We also love the idea of this necklace with a ‘Will You Marry Me’ inside. I can see it now: she goes to open the necklace, read the note, and as she does he gets down on one knee and holds out the ring box… so sweet. Read on to find out more…

Belt buckle bottle opener. Try saying that five times fast! One of the best things that happens when handmade artisans share their talents with the world is you get custom, personalized gifts that keep on giving. That’s what happened when Metalogical designer and owner, Chris, received this glowing feedback from a newlywed couple: “In the rush of wedding-mess, I never got back to you, but I wanted to let you know that the buckles were a huge hit—the guys loved them, and spent the entire week showing them off. I’m not sure that we’ve gone out with the crew even once since then when someone wasn’t wearing them—thank you again for your beautiful work!” How’s that for a glowing recommendation! This unique belt buckle bottle opener features your groom (or groomsman’s) initials personalized right on the front. The buckle can be attached to one of his in-house belts (or your own) so you’ll always have an opener at the ready. This makes an exceptional gift for the groom, groomsmen, and best man, and you can be sure it is a gift they’ll ACTUALLY USE. Read on to find out how you can win one as Giveaway #14 in this month’s AWESOME giveaway series!
