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.
