17 Coasters That Will Look Absolutely Lovely at Weddings

How will you incorporate your personal style into your wedding bar? The first things couples always tackle are drinks and glassware, but what about fun and unexpected details that can make your bar really POP? Besides fun swizzle sticks or straws like these and a signature drink sign, wedding coasters are another detail we love to see at receptions. We have seen coasters given as favors, we have seen coaster save the dates, escort cards, and we have seen them turned into creative guest book alternatives. A unique wedding coaster can act as an element of decor for your theme, as well as offer functionality by keeping tables clean of condensation and acting as a “drink saver” (more on that below). To illustrate how awesome wedding coasters can be, we’ve rounded-up seventeen finds to inspire your unique wedding bar style. Read on to see what we’ve found!

Coasters for Weddings

1. Birch wood wedding coasters

These wedding coasters are essential for a rustic wedding bar. By Pixels and Timber.

2. Coasters as your Save the Date

These wedding coasters are so pretty! Send them in the mail as a save the date announcement instead of a traditional card. By Paper Street Press.

3. Eat, Drink and Be Married

These coasters are elegant and feature a fun saying: “Eat, Drink and Be Married”. We love this example which features the couple’s names, wedding date, and website address. Perfect for guests to visit after the wedding if you’re showcasing photos on your wedding website. By Ruffhouse Art.

4. With Love from Chicago

Or Detroit. Or Los Angeles. Or NYC. Wherever your love adventure began! By Allie Hasson. Sidebar: it looks like this is the last batch of wedding coasters with “Chicago” and they might not be making more (sadface). Hmmm. I say, ask them anyway and maybe they’ll get a huge response and make them for all cities, since they’re incredibly lovely! I call dibs on Romeo.

10. Wedding Coaster Favors

Wrap up a set of coasters and give them to guests as favors, like these by My Little Chickadee Creations which are custom and handmade.

11. Please Don’t Take My Drink

A wedding coaster can be used as a drink saver, when placed on the rim of a glass. This coaster reads, “Please don’t take my drink, I’m dancing“. I swear, the number of drinks “cleaned up” while people are dancing is incredible! It will save you money, too, as a bonus, since most guests go get a new drink when they discover theirs is gone.

12. My Wish for the Newlyweds

Place these wedding coasters at the bar and guests can write their well wishes! This also takes the place of a guest book (similarly to #5, above). By Starboard Press.

13. Chalkboard

Guests can write their names on these chalkboard coasters so they don’t lose sight of which drink is theirs.

14. Photo Save the Date

You can have your engagement photo placed onto a coaster and sent as a unique save the date, well ahead of the big day.

15. Escort Card Coasters

Meet the escort card coaster: it’s an escort card and drink coaster in one! Two birds, one stone.

16. Happily Ever After

Wedding Bouquets Made of Paper

What is it about wedding bouquets made of paper that you love? My love is multifaceted, I tell you. For starters, your wedding bouquet can be made in any color.

photo: amy & jordan

Your bouquet can be made in any season at any time of year with any style of flower you choose.

photo: amy & jordan

Each paper flower bloom is hand-molded, one-by-one: a painstaking labor of love. And it’s all made just for you. You can even pick a wedding detail and have your bouquet created in those exact colors.

Or, perhaps have one made in an array of colors that you adore.

photos: ginger and mint photography

Maybe I’m smitten because paper bouquets last forever, meaning you won’t get all sappy like I did when I eventually had to toss my bouquet in the trash.

photos: ggd photographie

Maybe I love ’em because they never wilt. Never fade. Never lose their luster.

♥ | ♥ | ♥

A wedding bouquet made of paper just makes sense. And it makes even more sense when you have one made by someone who knows their stuff, like Chantal of Dragonfly Expression.

I love fresh flowers just like the next girl, but having a wedding bouquet made of paper doesn’t mean you have to forgo fresh at your wedding. It just means you have one less fresh bouquet to worry about.

Which leaves you more time for other things, like figuring out which of these photos you must add to your list. Or crossing this fun idea off your list.

Decorating Your Reception Hall? Try This Easy Trick!

Hi, loves! Emma here. I’m going to just go ahead and admit it: today’s feature is so gorgeous that I am considering a total revamp of our office with this easy decorating trick slathered EVERYWHERE. And then all over my bedroom. And bathroom. (Okay, I don’t think my husband would want to live in a paper flower forest, but one can dream, right?) Anyways, today we’re sharing one easy trick to decorating your reception hall. Every bride wants her reception hall to look its very best on the big day. And, let’s be honest: some reception walls can be pretty boring. Well, it’s time to dress them up. And, I promise once you see this paper flower backdrop from Dragonfly Expression, you won’t be able to un-see it… and that means you’ll want to ensconce your entire reception site with it. And that’s not a bad thing. See why…

Decorating Your Reception Hall

A paper flower backdrop is one easy trick to decorating your reception hall. It covers evenly, can be used on one wall (or adjoining walls), and adds instant elegance to any room. While paper flower backdrops can come in a variety of colors, I especially like this one in white because it makes everything else around it POP without looking too busy.

27 Amazing Anniversary Gifts by Year

Hi, lovelies! This is one BIG post, so pin it, tweet it out, share it on your timeline, or kick it old-school and bookmark it (CTRL + D) ’cause you’re going to need this list! Did you know there are twenty-seven traditional wedding anniversary gifts by year? It’s true! In this post, we’ll share a plethora of amazing anniversary gift ideas by year so you can wow ’em with your awesomeness. We’ll explain why there’s only twenty-seven suggestions AND dazzle you with a few handmade (+ a few non-handmade) gift ideas. Ready to get started? Let’s go!

27 Amazing Anniversary Gifts by Year via Emmaline Bride

Anniversary Gifts by Year

First and foremost, you may be wondering, but Emma, there are only twenty-seven suggestions. What gives? Great question. You see, whomever constructed these ‘traditional’ anniversary gift ideas either a) ran out of ideas, or b) wanted to give free reign to gift-givers on those in-between years. (We vote the latter.) So, there are suggestions for anniversary gifts by year from 1st through 15th, after which you’re shopping totally on your own until 20th. The list picks back up again, but only at the 5s and 10s: 25th, 30th, 35th, 40th, 50th, and 60th. Hence: 27 suggestions in total. Sidebar: you start with paper at the 1st year, concluding the list with diamond on the 60th. Just putting it out there: diamond pretty much puts any gift after the 60th to shame, don’t you think? They should have saved it for 70th. :) #longlifehusbandwife

Anyway, I digress. It’s time to get to the list of hand-picked, totally knock-your-socks-off anniversary gifts. Ready to get started? Me too. Let’s start with 1st… paper, which is actually sweeter than it sounds.

1st Paper

Paper! On your first anniversary, celebrate by eating the top tier of your wedding cake (that you froze on your wedding day, right?) and give each other a simple, totally heartfelt gift: a card. A card is simple and sweet: gifts don’t have to be pricey to be meaningful. This one, for instance, says, “I’ve been in love with you for _____ days.” Cute idea!

ive been in love with you for days card via 27 Amazing Anniversary Gifts by Year


Another idea? Make paper flowers.

whimseybox (pssst. get $5 off!)

Other paper ideas: movie tickets, football tickets, lottery tickets, a book they’ve been wanting to read, or this book which puts all other journals to shame.

one line a day book anniversary

chronicle books

2nd Cotton

Year two: cotton. An embroidery hoop with cotton fabric and custom embroidery is an excellent idea.

3rd Leather

Leather luggage tags with ‘Mr’ and ‘Mrs’ inscribed on them are a traveler’s dream. Perfect for your big three!

kiki’s leather shop

Alternate ideas: nice leather oxfords for him and this adorable leather purse for her (love the look of ‘Biscuit’ online).

4th Fruit / Flowers

For the 4th wedding anniversary gift, you can choose either fruit or flowers: your choice. I chose fruit as the example and picked a fruit tree. Plant it in your backyard or place on a patio and enjoy the fruit for years to come.

fruit plant anniversary gift idea via 27 Amazing Anniversary Gifts by Year

5th Wood

Andrew & I celebrated our five year anniversary in December, and ironically our entire year revolved around wood: we built a wood fence, stained said fence, and then had about a hundred old wood planks (from our old, weathered fence) to cut and recycle. We also bought a new wood coffee table. I then undertook a project where I was making table numbers out of reclaimed wood, but since scrapped it and recycled it (I was apparently not meant to be a table number maker). Also, we received this beautiful teak wood shelf. It makes a fantastic anniversary gift! Click here for more info.

Full disclosure, I received the shelf above from our friends over at UncommonGoods so we could review it for our readers. THIS SHELF IS AWESOME. Not only is it beautifully made, but the color is gorgeous and the teak wood smells amazing! I also love the minimalist design. This shelf is great for small spaces, too, because since it drills right on your wall, it takes up no floor space! I give it five stars. We’ll cherish this piece in our home for years to come.

Another idea that I just had to mention is a state shaped cutting board. I gifted one of these to my sister and brother-in-law a few years ago. It’s a great way to show your stately pride.

6th Candy / Iron

This is another year where you can pick between two: candy or iron. I like candy like the next girl, but this iron “You & Me” sign is too amazing to pass up.

steel you and me heart shaped metal decoration via 27 Amazing Anniversary Gifts by Year

grizzly custom steel

7th Wool / Copper

For your 7th wedding anniversary, the suggested gifts are wool or copper. For wool, we love these decorative felted wool dolls.

f for felt

Or, try you hand at making your own (or animals even, like these adorable creatures. Okay, maybe not so much for an anniversary gift, but I couldn’t help myself since that looked too adorable. (Can’t you tell I’m a new mom?) Sidebar: while browsing, I also spotted this insanely ridiculous book… unless you’re a crazy cat lady, I suppose.

For copper, I love these stacking rings:

stackable rings via 27 Amazing Anniversary Gifts by Year

little hill jewelry

8th Pottery / Bronze

For year eight, pottery or bronze are the suggested gift options. For pottery, I spotted one for her and one for him. For her, a ring holder dish is a lovely (+ functional) gift…

pottery anniversary gift ring dish via 27 Amazing Anniversary Gifts by Year

elise thomas designs

For him, I’ve selected a clay shaving mug and brush set.

miri hardy pottery

And, I spotted this bronze and leather bracelet for him that would also fit into the ‘bronze’ suggestion nicely.

roundhouse jewelry

Or how about a bronze wall art piece that ALSO doubles as a wine rack? Get out.

9th Willow

Okay, I know this one says ‘willow’, but I couldn’t help but think of Willow Tree, you know, those beautiful sculptures? You’ve probably seen one like this example below:

willow tree promise sculpture via 27 Amazing Anniversary Gifts by Year


Oh, and this makes me tear up!

If you want a literal use of willow, try this gold foil willow tree print for your home:

willow and olive

… or plant a willow tree in your backyard. Sidebar: does a willow tree make anyone else think of the movie My Girl, when Vada reads that poem for Thomas J? Oh just me? Moving on…

10th Aluminum

For 10 years, it is suggested to give gifts of aluminum. Here are a pair of aluminum stamped collar stays for him…

i belong with you you belong with me collar stays via 27 Amazing Anniversary Gifts by Year

block and hammer

For her, a hand-stamped aluminum cuff bracelet:

For the couple, this aluminum ‘love’ sign:

11th Steel

Toast to eleven sweet years together with a stainless steel champagne bucket.

12th Silk

Ah, silk: a soft, sumptuous fabric. One of my favorite items? This soft bamboo jersey robe with 100% silk-trim.

13th Lace

For a lace anniversary gift, consider a lace scarf…

celestine dreams

… lace necklace…

branch bound

… and since all of the lace finds are typically for women, we’re skipping the lace find for men. Skip it and pick something you think he could use instead.

14th Ivory

Ivory is such a general category; for this, I chose an ivory and gold personalized art print.

gold and ivory anniversary print via 27 Amazing Anniversary Gifts by Year

sweet peony press

15th Crystal

My favorite suggestion for crystal: crystal stemware. I heart Riedel, simply because their glassware is so sleek, chic, and modern.

riedel stemless wine glass via 27 Amazing Anniversary Gifts by Year


20th China

The 20th anniversary is china, aka your chance to grab those gorg china plates over at Anthropologie or restock your kitchen with new dinner plates.

anthropologie china dinner plate via 27 Amazing Anniversary Gifts by Year


25th Silver

You can’t go wrong on 25th with anything silver. Here’s a unique canvas I spotted at UncommonGoods.

silver anniversary gift 25 years canvas via 27 Amazing Anniversary Gifts by Year


30th Pearl

A pearl-covered clutch is just right for her on your 30th…

… paired with this three-strand pearl necklace…

And I couldn’t help but share this bracelet (can you tell I love pearl?)

For him, maybe these mother of pearl cufflinks?

me she designs llc

Sidebar: admittedly, once you get to 35th and into the gemstones, it becomes increasingly more difficult to find men’s gifts that he’ll actually want. The way I figure it, these are more or less suggestions for her, and she should buy him something he really wants or needs instead. (And, of course, same goes for the wife if she’s not really into the suggested gift category.) Suggestions: cigars! That new fishing pole he’s been eying. Tickets to a football game. Movie tickets where you let him pick the movie. And you watch it and you don’t complain or, you know, fall asleep (Lord of the Rings — all three movies — yes, I confess). Something that really means a lot to him means more than anything! So, for these next suggestions, I’ll just be providing a gift idea for the lady.

35th Coral

You can select coral gemstones for this one (like a necklace, earring set, or ring) but I like this alternative: a pretty watch with a coral strap.

coral fossil watch via 27 Amazing Anniversary Gifts by Year

40th Ruby

Love, love, love this ruby quartz pave diamond necklace! It’s gorgeous.

45th Sapphire

For 45th, sapphire is the gemstone of choice. Here’s a blue sapphire bracelet…

Or this gorgeous ring…

Or THIS. Holy smokes, this is so pretty.

50th Gold

Gold: the possibilities are endless! Here’s a beautiful 14k gold bar necklace…

lilyemme jewelry

… or this triple initial necklace in solid gold…

60th Diamond

And, last but not least, we have diamond. This one’s easy: diamond jewelry, or, diamonds around a timepiece. You can go with a gorgeous in-your-face diamond bracelet…

diamond bracelet

perfect jewelry

… this green cushion-cut diamond ring…

green cushion diamond ring via 27 Amazing Anniversary Gifts by Year

kristin coffin

… or these diamond stud earrings.

diamond stud earrings


Just for kicks, we looked up the most expensive diamond on Amazon. Holy smokes, over $100k, that’s some serious cheddar.

And, like I said earlier, after 60th… you’re on your own with gift-giving ideas. But by then you won’t need anyone’s gift-giving help because you’ll know your spouse better than anyone! Here’s to 60+ years of wedded bliss! ♡
