For the bride who likes all gorgeous things out of the box, I've pulled together a short and sweet list of alternative engagement rings. A lot of these come from small, one-woman/man hand makers (bonus points!), which make them all the sweeter. Scroll to see and let me know if you end up purchasing any of these. I'd love to see them! 


10 Wedding Cake Alternatives

One of my hope with my stationery shop is to help brides reflect their personality into their engagement and weddings. So, finding new twists on old traditions is one of my favorite things to scout out. A few months ago, I posted 15 alternatives to a guest book and you guys loved it! So, today, we're going to talk wedding cake alternatives. I hope this list helps you break out of the traditional and find a cute and gorgeous idea that reflects you and your fiancee!  

How to remove wine bottle labels

I'm not much of a wine drinker (gimme all the pina coladas), but I am SO excited about releasing my new wine labels! They are perfect to ask the wine lovers in your life to be your bridesmaid, or to thank them for hosting your bridal shower, or to celebrate your own engagement! They can be personalized to whatever you'd like and with the new launch happening next week, I'll have over 80 options for you. (Divided up into four different categories so it's not too overwhelming for you! 😉)

So, if you've got your wine labels at the ready, you may be wondering how in the world to put them on. Never fear - it's super easy to do in only five steps. 

Sneak Peek at some new products!

I remember sitting in my car on a cold October morning planning and praying through the next several months for my business. I like to peel away at the beginning of every quarter to think through what's coming up next. For weeks, I'd been thinking of new ideas and new designs. And, finally, on that chilly morning, I was putting them to paper. I circled January 8 nice and big. That was when I'd launch all of these ideas rolling around in my head. 

10 Ways To Pull Off the Mismatched Bridesmaids Look

Oh, I just LOVE this look! It's gorgeous, modern, and flexible. It allows your bridesmaids to show off their personality while still maintaining the look you want with your wedding. Your bridesmaids are far more likely to actually wear the dress again and it creates for some stunning photos. 

What I'm finding works is if you keep at least one thing consistent throughout the whole look - whether that's the same jewel tone family, length, or style. This allows for the photos to be cohesive but still adds interest and personality.
