We’re covering some things you’ve never thought of before, along with some tricks you won’t want to miss. Enjoy!

Kitchen Bridal Shower Invitations + Ideas – Ask EB

by lucy loves paper

We love hearing from our brides… and their moms, too! When Susan wrote to us about her daughter’s bridal shower, we swooped right in with inspiration. She’s planning a kitchen themed bridal shower, but was having trouble finding the perfect invites with a more modern feel. To help, we found kitchen bridal shower invitations with matching recipe cards for guests to fill out and bring to the party. Once we found those, it was easy to piece together some additional ideas. Check out the invitations by Lucy Loves Paper and see what else we found including a state cutting board, apron, personalized rolling pin (ahh, I want one of these), a recipe box, cookbook, and favors. Which of these finds do you love best? Besides those invites, I’m crazy over that apron… it’s darling!

Plan a Breathtaking Destination Elopement (Real Weddings)

Plan Destination Elopement Weddings in Colorado or Kentucky | Angelyn + Justin's Red River Gorge Wedding in Kentucky (Intimate small wedding) | http://www.emmalinebride.com/real-weddings/plan-a-breathtaking-destination-elopement-in-kentucky-colorado-mountains/ | photo: My Tiny Wedding/Two Colorado - Kentucky and Colorado Wedding Photographer, Venue, Officiate wedding package

Have you dreamed of getting married in the mountains? Do you prefer an intimate elopement with just the two of you and your closest guests? After seeing this Real Wedding feature, you’ll definitely want to consider it! Angelyn and Justin drove up from Florida to Kentucky to spend the week in the Red River Gorge for their “elopecation”, as they wanted something unique for their big day. Once they arrived, they hiked in with their regular walking shoes and wedding attire while the team of Two Colorado photographed them along the way. When they reached their ceremony location (under a beautiful arch in the Red River Gorge), they switched into their dress shoes. As Two Colorado tells us, “They had their ceremony just as the sun was about to hit the horizon, casting beautiful lighting on the Sandstone Altar that Mother Nature had created. The only two guests were their mothers, who both traveled from Florida the day before. After the ceremony, they all went back to their cabin to have dinner. They also enjoyed a cake, made from scratch by My Tiny Wedding, using the finest ingredients.” It sounds like a breathtaking and relaxing wedding day to us! See how their beautiful day unfolded in the photos below…
