So I go back an forth with my opinion on themed weddings vs traditional ones. I love the both- and themed wedding have so much potential for creating a complete experience and having all these great little details. I think it might actually be easier to have a themed one than a classic one. Hmm.
Anywho, I started coming across several nautical bits that I really liked, so I slowly compiled a bunch of images for your viewing (and shopping) pleasure. Most of these are from Etsy, and a few things are pretty easy DIY projects.
I love these for wedding favors!

I never know what to write in guestbooks- or even group birthday cards for that matter, so having a little prompt makes things a lot easier and butters your guests up to say more than they might have otherwise. I think it’d actually be great to mix the top two images into one- fitting the prompt cards into envelopes in a keepsake book so you don’t just have a pile of cards lying around waiting to get lost. « Read the rest of this entry »

So this one is a pretty obvious DIY project- but does it make it less fun? Nope! I went out and bought a bunch of Martha Stewart sale items at the art store this weekend. I got a box full of glitter, blank cards, cute envelopes, half-pearl stickers, and a ton of adorable stamps with monochromatic ink pads– all for $10! « Read the rest of this entry »

It probably goes without saying that shoes clips are a great, inexpensive way to spruce up any pair of shoes. It’s an easy way to add “something blue”- perhaps a blue vintage cameo? Or if you’re looking to help your bridesmaids save money but want some uniformity, they can wear simple black shoes they already have in their closet and all clip on the same shoe clips that match your wedding palette. They’re also incredibly easy to make and would be a fun DIY activity for a wedding party with the girls.
Several of these are actually available for very reasonable prices on Etsy. However, if you’re good with your hands or are just good with directions, there are tons of sources for how to make various shoe clips (3 of the best I’ve found are linked below). Most of them just involve glueing bows, old jewelry or bunched fabric to a clip (even a sturdy hair clip could work in some cases).
