If you’ve been an avid EB reader, you already know how much I (Emma here!) adore re-usable wedding accessories. Why buy decor throwaways when re-usables are so readily available? These wooden silhouette cake toppers by Figs+Ginger are no exception! The silhouettes are secured onto a rivet and can be reused after the wedding day on your anniversary cakes. While not being placed atop a cake, the toppers can be detached and used as wall art or as a decor piece. Figs+Ginger recommends using them on album covers or scrapbooks, too. These cute cut-outs are handmade in the mountains of North Carolina using sustainable harvested wood.

I’m a tulle-loving girl. I think the netted fabric adds a little something to a dress – particularly a wedding gown – giving it the lift it needs and deserves. But, let’s face it, lovelies: the stuff itches. I have a black and white polka dot dress with a bright red sash (it’s quite fabulous) but I avoid wearing it because the bottom layer (bright red tulle!) is so dang itchy. And, if you sit in it all day it leaves marks on your legs. So, when I saw this tulle wedding ball gown I thought it looked lovely, but imagined the itchiness that would ensue. Ouch. However, I quickly discovered this is an entirely different type of tulle. In fact, this sweet soft cotton tulle ballgown is just that: soft! The dress is handmade from 80% cotton, with all the structural parts underneath the tulle constructed of organic cotton sateen making it soft against your skin. It is lightweight and party-ready. Take a peek…

This adorable silhouette ring pillow spotted at Simply Silhouettes will be a lasting heirloom for years! This custom pillow is a fun alternative to a traditional plain pillow and will be admired in your love nest for years. This ring bearer pillow is completely customizable and is handmade from custom printed fabric. Send your favorite photo and they will create a one-of-a-kind ring pillow with your custom silhouette printed right onto it. The pillow is 8″x8″, big enough to make a statement but small enough for your ring bearer to carry down the aisle. Silk ribbon finishes off the look and secures your rings to the pillow for easy access during the ceremony. LOVE!

I am smitten over silhouettes, particularly when incorporated throughout wedding decor. In the past, we have shared silhouette chair signs, silhouette pins, favor boxes and prints… and today we’re sharing a new find with you: a silhouette wedding cake! It features a bride and groom silhouette surrounded by hand-written ingredients to a happy marriage such as “love”, “generosity”, “friendship”, “consideration”, and “fulfillment”. The color scheme is blush pink and grey, a sugary sweet combination.
