Don’t let it fall! This big wedding Jenga photo is terrific. This giant size tumble tower is a hit among party guests for receptions and especially a way to keep all the kids (even the big ones) having fun! The blocks were tumbling just as Tamara from Silver Thumb Photography captured the guests’ reaction. The couple Meghan and John definitely know how to throw a party!

Brides: your wedding day allows for plenty of sweet, thoughtful ways to surprise the groom. Giving the groom a gift is one way to shower him with affection on your wedding day, but we’ve found some other awe-inspiring ideas we know he will love. To inspire you, we’ve hand-picked ten of our favorite ways to surprise the groom before the ceremony and during the reception. There’s a first look, a love note, and a mascot, just to name a few. People like to say the wedding day is all about the bride, but we think that’s outdated: it’s time for the groom to share some of the spotlight, too! Which of these serendipitous ideas seems to suit your groom best?
1. Surprise the Groom with… a First Look
When you surprise him with a first look, he gets the opportunity to see his Bride, all dressed up and for his eyes only. He’ll love it; make sure your photographer is ready to snap those candid smiles.

Give guests the gift of plantable succulents! Succulents are easy plants for guests to maintain because they are hardy, retain plenty of water, and can withstand colder temperatures than other plants. These easy-to-DIY succulent wedding favors (which double as place cards, too!) are placed in tea cups ready for guests to plant. Since they are “planted” into whimsical tea cups, guests get two gifts in one! Gather plenty of vintage tea cups from places like thrift shops, garage sales, or estate sales – the more mismatched, the better. Each guests will have a one-of-a-kind planter piece to cherish for years.
We love to find unique, multi-functional finds for both wedding day and ever after. How many brides can say they were able to reuse their rustic wedding centerpieces in their love nest after the big day? That’s why we love these log bowls by Loyal Loot Collective. They are handmade and offer the rustic look of trees in their natural state – but with a twist. Each bowl is made from reclaimed trees and contains a high-floss finish in a variety of colors. We think they will complement your rustic wedding beautifully.
Jeny and Colby’s green DIY wedding features so many beautiful details at the premier Mildale Farms. The details from this Kansas wedding were so well crafted by the bride and groom. Most of the DIY wedding details by the bride included handmade centerpiece boxes covered in green moss and wrapped in deep plum ribbon. Jeny also created green ornamental moss balls of different sizes and scattered them across the tables. You’ll see in the pictures below the beautiful green moss covered monogram hanging above the wedding party table and the two grapevine chandeliers with hanging candles in the center of the room. Other great DIY wedding details include the painted antique windows and an arbor made by the groom for the ceremony. The couple’s love and DIY wedding details were well captured by Kansas wedding photographer Melissa from Melissa Rieke Photography.

Need wedding inspiration boards by color? Looking to coordinate with your wedding’s color scheme? We’ve got ‘em! Chrissy Ott, editor of The Perfect Palette, sent us these incredible inspiration boards which combine our love for handmade and her expertise in color palettes. And, since it is easier to find an accessory first (rather than find one to match your palette later) Chrissy used a handmade clutch as the focal point for each board. We are also excited to add that each handmade clutch used below is from The Marketplace at Emmaline Bride, where you can find tons of handmade loveliness from the best artisans on the planet. Get inspired with color AND a handmade accessory to match!
