Let me confess a little secret: I adore wedding paper. Invitations, save the dates, programs, escort cards… it’s all just so lovely. Plus, I’m a total sucker for snail mail, which is why I’ve become so into these as of late. Whether it’s a hand-written note, a postcard from a friend, an invitation, or a style-filled box, getting mail is downright fun, don’t you think? But I digress. Today we’re sharing gorgeous, pin-worthy whimsical wedding invitations designed by Splash of Silver. When I saw this new collection, I tried to pick a favorite… and I couldn’t! I like them all. Maybe you can help: which one do you love most? Read on to see the invites and score an exclusive discount!

If you’re planning a rustic, vintage, or shabby chic wedding, this card box will fit the bill.

If I told you peonies weren’t my favorite wedding flower, I (Emma here!) would be lying. Ever since I flipped through my first wedding magazine post-engagement, I’ve been fascinated with this sweet fragrant bloom. I used to be in awe of the pink peonies, though… until I spotted the all white peony bridal bouquet. It is classic, elegant, traditional, and totally brimming with gorgeousness: take a peek!

Oh, you’re going to love this adorable idea. Since we just talked about wedding coffee bar ideas, I knew it was the perfect time to tie in this DIY marry me mug. If you’re going to propose soon, and need the best proposal idea ever, this is one of them! Introducing the marry me mug, a mug that has the words, ‘Marry Me’, written in the inside, at the bottom, so it is revealed after she is done drinking her beverage. I think it would go something like this: guy makes girl delicious cup of coffee. Girl sits on couch waiting for said coffee, cuddling up underneath an afghan. Guy brings coffee — one mug for him, the other is the marry me mug for girl — and they converse for a pretty solid amount of time. Girl drinks her coffee too slow, it’s too hot, and boy gets impatient. He’s sweating, nervous, but he also has to drink the hot coffee because otherwise she would wonder what’s up. With each sip, he gets nervous… when will she see it?

Hi, loves! Emma here. I’m not lying when I say that coffee ranks pretty high up there in my list of my favorite things. From espresso to cappuccino to Keurig blends (like this, my latest obsession) to pumpkin-spice fall flavors coming out next month, I’d say that coffee is a fascination. Earlier I told our Twitter followers about the funny thing I almost did this morning so you can imagine that coffee is a pretty wonderful start to my everydays. It wakes me up, smells heavenly, and it’s the juice that keeps me going, going, going. So when I saw wedding coffee bar ideas popping up on our Pinterest boards, I knew I had to turn this into an inspiration post. Because, when you get down to it, coffee and weddings are both pretty amazing; add in a few handcrafted touches and the result is awe-inspiring. If you’re a coffee-addict like me, you’ll love these seven things every wedding coffee bar NEEDS to have. Enjoy!
7 Things Every Wedding Coffee Bar Needs
1. A Stunning Display
First, you need a central table where guests can help themselves to coffee. This is one of my most favorite setups to date:
