We love twists on traditional escort cards, especially when the bride and groom incorporate a rustic flair. Heidi & Alex’s rustic DIY wedding is completely awe-inspiring, but one of our favorite details is the DIY skeleton key escort cards. They secured vintage piano music sheets onto an old, rustic wooden frame and suspended skeleton keys (tied onto escort card tags) with twine. This is one of our favorite real wedding details ever! Beautifully done, you two!

Spotted: A sweet, subtle, easy-to-DIY mason jar centerpiece for your wedding! If a powerful punch of royal blue is the look you’re after, this centerpiece has you covered! This blue is royally a-mazing and would look great incorporated with light blue hydrangeas. I can imagine plenty of these scattered throughout a rustic wedding, garden wedding, or bridal shower luncheon… lovely!

The pearl bouquet wrap is one trend train I’m hopping onto with both heels! A pearl bouquet wrap is an simple solution to a traditionally plain bouquet wrap typically made of satin or lace. A pearl wrap can be added to the satin or lace for a glammed up look, no matter how simple or extravagant it may be. Spotted via Style Me Pretty with gorgeous floral design by Flowers by Felicia and photography by Kristin Weaver.

We’re always excited to see a non-floral boutonniere for brides who wish to use an alternative. We spotted this ‘Horton’ ball boutonniere, which reminds us of yellow billy buttons you may have seen around these parts. (We’re quite obsessed.) However, if yellow isn’t your thing, these boutonnieres come in any color so you can mix and match to your heart’s desire! Check out this beautiful boutonniere example:

Spotted: A mason jar centerpiece for coffee lovers! It’s easy to DIY – fill regular mason jars with coffee beans, add fresh flowers, and place on tables. Easy, peasy. We recommend flowers in a bright color that will contrast the brown so the jars really POP. We love the pink shown below:

According to superstition and thousands of tweets heard ’round the world, the world may come to an end tomorrow. I don’t agree, and, well, the great Charles M. Schulz summed it up best: “Don’t worry about the world coming to an end tomorrow. It’s already tomorrow in Australia.” True! So, regardless of what happens tomorrow, we’re alive today so let’s get inspired! We are excited to dazzle you with 20 crepe paper wedding ideas we know you’ll LOVE – because we sure do! Ever since we discussed chair ribbons, we’ve been obsessed with fun decor ideas to incorporate color and texture, with crepe paper being no exception. Who would have thought there could be so many fun crepe paper wedding projects? In fact, this is just part one of our new series featuring crepe paper, since there were way too many beautiful ideas to limit it all to just 20. That’s crazy talk. So, let’s have some fun with crepe paper, shall we?
