Hi, loves! Emma here. Wedding invitations are one of *the* toughest decisions to make for your wedding. After all, you only get to pick one and it needs to convey the theme and tone of your wedding — all in one printed card. And you want yours to stand out from all others. So, where the heck are you supposed to start looking? That’s where we come in! Whether you were planning to order your invitations a week ago (oops) or you’re just getting your feet wet with wedding theme ideas and colors, you’ll find it all right here. We’ve rounded up the best wedding invitations to inspire your big day including modern, vintage, beach, barn, woodland, and more. There are even more trends and colors, but this list is designed for unique wedding themes. To be honest, this list was supposed to stop at fifty, but I couldn’t help myself, hence the fifty-“plus”. Just wait until you see them all…

14 Beautiful Ceremony Backdrops Using Doors

One of our favorite rustic wedding details is the use of re-purposed doors as ceremony backdrops or decor. The more weathered they are, the better! To prove that ceremony backdrops are a beautiful DIY idea, we’ve rounded up fourteen of our favorite examples. Some of these are ceremony backdrops, while others are aisle-way doors designed for the bride to make a true grand entrance — even outdoors! Get ready to break out the hammer + nails: you’re going to be on the lookout for castaway doors to re-purpose after this post! I know I am, if even just for a patio backdrop. ;) Enjoy!

P.S. Need to find doors for your project? This is a great place to start for vintage doors and hardware or Ebay. Another great place to check? estate sales near you.
