[H]i, loves! Whenever I go to a wedding, I make a beeline right to the cake table. You see, I have to get a glimpse of the cake, but mostly I want to see the cake topper they chose. A cake topper tells a lot about a couple, you know? That’s why today we’re sharing a HUGE round-up of over eighteen cake topper styles for truly unique couples. Plus, we’re giving you a chance to win one of them, since we’re so crazy over wedding giveaways here at Emmaline Bride. Which one will it be? I’ll give you a hint: it’s by the lovely Jenna Leslye Designs! Ready to get started? Let’s go!
[H]i, Brides! Emma here. Here’s a fun fact you might not know about me: I am obsessed with paper goods. And, you already know I love all things wedding, so any wedding-related stationery is a winning combination in my book. I especially dig the unconventional finds: the uniquely shaped wedding invitations, the wood save the dates, and gold foil inspired ideas, just to name a few. So, when I spotted these insanely gorgeous wedding invites with custom shapes over at Zazzle, I had to share them with you. Here are five of my favorites, along with a special gift card giveaway ($25) to spend on anything your little heart desires at Zazzle.com. Enjoy!
The bracket shaped invitation is my favorite non-traditional design. It adds elegance to an otherwise deep woods rustic style design.
A ticket shaped invitation has edges with rounded-out points. This mason jar design is one of my favorites and features a personalized mason jar (with your monogram), filled with pink-hued peonies and an elegant serif-based font.

FREE PRINTABLE: Typewriter Wedding Guest Book Sign
Our favorite idea? The typewriter wedding guest book! Set up a guest book table with a vintage typewriter, paper, and a sign that asks guests to ‘sign’ your guest book by typing a note. Here’s an example:
Brides: want your wedding invitation to stand out among others this summer? Try this booklet wedding invitation on for size! It reads like a book — a beautifully crafted, floral-print-loving, adorable hearts-and-arrows-with-initials-across-the-front kind of book. It even comes with a postcard-style reply card to make responses a breeze! Spotted at The Find Sac. Take a peek…
Booklet Wedding Invitation
We give bonus points to this invite for telling it like it is, too: “Ceremony will be followed by awkward but enthusiastic dancing.” Haha.

Hello, loves! Have you shared the exciting news of your wedding with friends and family yet? A fun way to do so is with a save the date. You may have see traditional save the date ideas in the past, but today’s round-up of creative save the date ideas are anything but boring! Read on to see which new ideas made the list and tell us how you’ll ‘save the date’. Enjoy!
Creative Save the Date Ideas
1. Scratch Off
I love this new scratch off save the date! Guests receive the card in the mail and use a coin to reveal the wedding date.
When’s the last time you had a hand-painted portrait of yourself? Never? Me either! Now you can, thanks to B is for Bonnie and these portrait wedding invitations. We love handmade wedding invitations: each invitation offers a custom, personalized experience. Each invitation is printed with the prettiest inks onto the finest papers. It’s a true work of art! When an artisan will sketch, hand-paint, and create an invitation for your perfect day, that’s a pretty incredible thing, don’t you think?
Portrait Wedding Invitations
A couple (and their story) is wholly unique; why have the same invitations as everyone else? You’ll wow your guests with these portrait invitations and you’ll have a beautiful piece of art for your home. Each invitation measures 5″ x 7″ and also includes a corresponding response card and save the date.
Here’s another charming example:
Ready to get YOUR custom portrait?
Visit B is for Bonnie and get inspired! Bonnie is a sweetheart to work with and a newlywed herself. Stop by and say hi! :)
Now it’s your turn: describe what YOUR portrait would look like…
Include quirky details, like his beard, your vintage frames, a baseball cap he perpetually wears, or a sock bun in your hair. In my portrait, A would be rocking his beard and I’d have a side bang and maybe even a side braid, which is what I’ve been wearing these days. Enough about me. We want to hear from you!
Goodbye boring… hello, unique reception tables! Make your reception tables pop by replacing traditional table numbers with table names. Each table name is an opportunity to share your unique love story or tie in your wedding theme. And, I have to admit: the most memorable weddings I’ve attended were those with clever table names (like songs by The Beatles and types of wine). What will your table names say about you? We’ve rounded up fifty of the best wedding table name ideas to inspire your own creative twist with everything from states you love to favorite tv couples. We’re also offering a giveaway in this post… read on for the full scoop and your chance to win!
