When I asked my sisters to stand up with me at my wedding, I wrote them notes in sweet little letterpress cards from Tallu-lah, one of my favorite sources for wedding-related note cards (I especially love their To My Groom card with the top hat). If you’re trying to find a special way to ask your ladies to be by your side as you say “I do,” we’ve got you covered with 12 of our favorite cards…

There’s nothing quite like custom calligraphy, but these hand lettered fonts are the next best thing – not to mention they’re the perfect budget-friendly compromise! They would be so gorgeous on invitations, addresses, table numbers, escort cards, menus…

Some of these fonts have multiple styles, and even some flourishes, swashes, and other goodies to make your designs that much more lovely. Also, I definitely recommend checking out other fonts from all of these foundries – I could spend hours browsing through their charming alphabets!

Okay so I know it’s hard to choose, but which one is your favorite? Are you planning to use any of these hand-lettered fonts for your any wedding DIY projects? For more great fonts, check out 50 of my favorites HERE, and 50 of my favorite free fonts HERE.

We’re having an early birthday celebration for Caroline this weekend, and I’ve been in paper flower heaven the past week, making pretties for the party…

I’m having so much fun designing and making flowers, and can’t stop thinking about them, so I thought I would share some of my favorite paper flower inspiration with you!

 

Thuss + Farrell

I received a copy of Paper to Petal by Rebecca Thuss and Patrick Farrell last summer, and it’s been an incredible resource for inspiration and techniques –  I highly recommend it! It includes 75 projects, plus hundreds of petal and leaf templates (which are available in PDF form - hugely helpful for printing and cutting them out).

Oh, and the Thuss + Farell Instagram feed is wonderful, too!

Anandamayi Arnold

I was first introduced to paper flowers years and years ago at the magical Berkeley shop, Tail of the Yak, with Anandamayi Arnold‘s spectacular paper botanical surprise balls…

Jude Miller

Jude Miller‘s botanical sculptures are breathtaking - can you believe these are made of paper?! Imagine wearing one as a fascinator…

Livia Cetti

In addition to creating charming paper flowers, Livia Cetti is a gardener and incredible floral designer – somehow I think that comes through in her sweet paper creations. She also has a gorgeous new book out, The Exquisite Book of Paper Flowers.

Jordan Ferney

Crafty DIY party maven Jordan Ferney always posts the best tutorials, and I love her ideas for ways to use paper flowers, like this headband.

Brittni Watson Jepsen

I love paper blooms in any size, and Brittni over at The House That Lars Built clearly does too – how awesome is this giant flower! She has lots of great paper flower tutorials on her blog, and also offers workshops and online paper flower making classes.

Martha Stewart Weddings

Some of the most darling paper flower projects that I’ve seen come from the folks at Martha Stewart

 

If you love paper flowers, you’ll also want to check out the work of Lyndie Dourthe and Eloise Corr Danch. Also, Lia Griffith has some great tutorials on her blog for a bunch of different flower styles.

And for even more of my paper flower finds, head over to my Paper Flower Pinterest board!

 

I received a review copy of Paper to Petal from Potter Craft/Random House, but all opinions expressed in this post are my own.

I recently came across the work of calligrapher and illustrator, Stephanie Fishwick, and was instantly smitten with her whimsical custom crests. What a charming alternative to a simple monogram! And what a perfect way to embellish wedding related stationery, from envelope flaps to program covers…

In addition to these more elaborate custom crests, you can Build-Your-Own personalized version with Stephanie’s Custom Crest Creator. Just choose a garland, an icon, and text, and you have your very own crest you can stamp all over just about anything you can think of! I can also imagine these as a very sweet gift for someone dear.

Garlands include wreaths of rosemary and thyme, nautical knots, and heraldic crests. Icons include a sun, bumblebee, zebra, even a pair of shoes. You can go with a classic monogram, a single initial, your name… the options are numerous!

 

I had a ton of fun playing around and building these six crests, though I have no idea how I would narrow it down to just one favorite combination! What would you choose? Stephanie’s custom crests start at $120.

If you ask anyone who attended my wedding what their favorite part of the reception was, I guarantee that most of them will mention the photo booth. It was jam packed with people the entire night, and not only did everyone leave with fun photos, but Ryan and I ended up with a super fun and unique guest book filled with the duplicates. Magnolia Photo Booth added so much to our wedding, and though it was nearly three years ago now, I still pull out our coffee table book and smile at our hilarious friends and family.

You can do pics in black and white, or in color. You can go with plain print-outs, or have Magnolia‘s design team create a custom wedding logo for you (so no one ever forgets when and where they took that awesome photo!). The booths themselves even come in different colors, so you can choose the one that best coordinates with your event. I also love that they’re the perfect blend of retro and modern, with the feel of a retro photo booth and the convenience of a modern one. An unexpected bonus to the way the booth is designed? By having curtains on the sides instead of solid walls, you can pretty much cram as many people as possible into one photo. We have a few clown car shots from my wedding as proof. 

MagBooths are located in eight major U.S. cities (San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Louisville, Austin, New York, Chicago, and Cleveland), but they’re also happy to travel pretty much anywhere you can think of.

I think the best part of renting a Magnolia Photo Booth is probably the fact that they’re all-inclusive: set-up and take-down, an on-site attendant, unlimited prints, web-hosting where your guests can order prints, and both a disk AND a book of images. Oh, and even an assortment of props!

From my personal experience, I cannot recommend The Magnolia Photo Booth Co. enough. It’s a fun-loving company who will bring some big fun to your wedding!

 

The Magnolia Photo Booth Co. is a sponsor of Snippet & Ink, but the opinions in this post are my own.
