We spotted this gorgeous wedding dress with sleeves and lace over at Katie Jean Designs and couldn’t wait to share. We always see wedding dresses with the same neckline style, so it’s refreshing to see something other than strapless or halter for a chance (although we love ‘em all). If you’re a vintage-loving bride looking for a wedding dress with sleeves and lace, you’re going to love the Ami wedding dress. It has a unique fit + flare that we are loving right now…

When people ask us about the best engagement gift ideas, I can’t help but mention wedding prints as one of them. Customization is at the heart of a wedding — particularly handmade weddings — and personalized wedding art prints makes perfect sense. Artwork is a functional gift, which can be framed and displayed in the home of the newlyweds for years to come. A personalized wedding print can also be used as a makeshift guest book, onto which guests sign around the edges at the reception. (A guest book on the wall? You’ll definitely look at it more than a closed book on your shelf!) Today we are introducing eight of our favorite new wedding prints by theme by the talented Michael Dexter Design. But we want to know: which one is perfect for your big day?

One of our favorite parts of handmade weddings? The decor! There are so many creative twists on traditional items that we’ve been finding lately. We especially love when artists make keepsake-quality items you can use long after the wedding is over. For instance, this wedding card box suitcase over at PNZ Designs can be used to hold cards from guests, guest book notes, or pop open the suitcase and use it as a creative escort card display. The front is embellished with your monogram, etched in wood and stained to perfection. Love, love, love.
