Good morning, lovelies! I spotted this amazing tablescape and had to share it… immediately. This vintage inspired tablescape would be perfect for either a bridal shower or a wedding. I love the pop of lavender – both the color and the sprig placed on the plate – and the lace ties the vintage look together perfectly. The metal place ‘cards’ are my favorite touch, and since it would take plenty of bridehours to make 100+ metal place ‘cards’, I think this works best for the bride and groom’s seats. This entire vintage inspired tablescape is gorgeous and one of my favorites to date. Styled by The Stylish Soiree, captured by Love Life Studios and spotted via Style Me Pretty.

Hello, loves! Today we’re talking about wedding calligraphy – the fanciful art of writing – which can be applied across your entire wedding spectrum. Hiring a wedding calligrapher may sound like a luxury request, but it can be affordable AND make a world of a difference in the overall look and quality of your wedding. I am a self-proclaimed handwriting nerd, which all began when my mom saw my hurried handwriting in 3rd grade, sat me down at her desk, and taught me to write more legibly. Ever since, I’ve developed a knack for pretty writing, calligraphy, and design, realizing that taking a little extra time and patience really does go a long way. If you need someone to give you a helping hand and turn your wedding stationery into works of art, we’re here to help! We’ve located the top twelve wedding calligraphy ideas by handmade artisans who are skilled in the craft and ready to create a personalized suite for your big day. Read on to be inspired…

Good morning + Happy Wednesday! We hope you grabbed a gigantic cup of coffee today (or tea) because we have quite the read for you today! This is one of those posts that inspired me (more than usual) while writing it, so I sincerely hope it does the same for you. (Be sure to pin it for re-reading later!) First things first… if you’re planning a wedding reception with assigned tables, you’ll need an escort card display. Escort cards inform your guests where they’ll be seated… so, rather than roam around from table to table to find their name, they’ll easily grab their card, a drink, and have time to mingle before sitting down for dinner. Escort cards may have been a bit basic in the past, but thanks to handmade artisans (+ photographers to capture their work!) escort cards are in a decor class all their own! Today, we are sharing twenty-five of the best escort card ideas to save you time, energy, and give you a much-needed jolt of inspiration to kick start your day. And, whether you’re planning a rustic, vintage, nautical, or otherwise themed wedding, we’ve got you covered. So, if you’re ready to be inspired… let’s begin!

Looking for an easy way to add a punch of color + handmade wedding flair to your reception? Just add paper flower place cards! These brilliant faux blooms by Noemi of Imeon Design resemble dahlias in full bloom in poppy pink, blue, aqua, and red. To turn a paper flower into an instant place card, just add the optional pin and a name flag. Or, if you love the blooms as-is, use as embellishment: greet guests with a paper flower on each plate, place a handful of blooms along a table runner as a chic centerpiece, or attach ribbon and use as napkin rings.

Cigar aficionados: we have the place card idea for you! This cigar place card is one of our favorite little details from Maria & Nick’s drop-dead gorgeous wedding day (captured by Tyler Branch Photo). While it isn’t exactly a place “card” per se, the idea is to incorporate a quality hand-selected cigar at each gentleman’s place setting. If your budget is limited, include only the groomsmen, fathers of the bride and groom, and grandfathers. It is a nice gesture the leading men in your fiancee’s life can enjoy over a bonding moment or two. We also love the stripes, the ‘master’ and ‘lady’ signage, and the sprig of lavender. Delightful!

Good morning, lovelies! Happy Friday + “Royal Wedding Day” to you. Did you stay up or set your alarm to watch the wedding as it unfolded? I (Emma here!) stayed up to watch the nuptials, and I’m excited to share a few of my personal favorite highlights with you. Of course… I loved watching Prince Harry and Prince William waving as they made their way through the processional to Westminster Abbey, the quick glimpse of Catherine as she was driven with her father to the ceremony, and the huge beaming smile she gives as her sister straightens out her train and she prepares to walk down the aisle. However, my absolute favorite part was
