Now that I’m engaged, one of the things I’m most excited about (aside from being married of course!) is choosing which items I want to register for. One of the first places that I looked is at Tabula Tua‘s incredible online store. With their online wedding registry and registry completion program, it’s a great option for brides everywhere. Not only that, but right now they’ve got a special offer for Snippet & Ink readerswhen you register with them before September 30, Tabula Tua will give you a $100 credit toward your registry!

One of my very favorite collections that Tabula Tua offers is Match Pewter. I love that it can be dressed up or down, and that it’s the perfect balance between masculine and feminine. I love that it’s simple and lovely, from the Convivio dinnerware to the elegant serving trays. And I love that it’s all handmade. Here are a few of my favorite Match Pewter pieces…

If you want to register for beautiful, special pieces that will become family heirlooms, Tabula Tua is definitely the place for you. Oh, and don’t miss their blog, Mix&Match, full of beautiful pieces and registry advice.

I was recently reminded of this darling pig note card by Black Pearl Press, and though it would be a fun starting point for a summer barbecue wedding reception. Simple and sweet, with jam and pies and peaches and barbecue. Oh, and mustaches on a stick, just because they’re fun!

Mood: summer barbecue
Palette: blush, sepia, pie crust, sage

I’m so excited – after some frustrating wedding planning stops and starts, we’ve finally decided on a date and a place! You’d think that after blogging about weddings every day for the last two years I’d have a very clear idea of what kind of wedding I’d be having. In some ways I suppose that’s true, but in other ways it’s just incredibly overwhelming. Hopefully now that we’ve finally figured out the where and the when, it will be easier to edit out some of the endless possibilities and focus on what makes sense for our wedding. Hopefully… Of course I have some favorite links to share with you this week:

Who knew a surveillance video could be so cool? No really, you have to watch this.

Clever photobooth.

Or how about a shadow booth?

Sweet shoot from Steep Street.


Wouldn’t this be a fun way to spend a summer evening?

Tempted to elope, yet again…

Have a happy weekend, lovelies!

Lazy days, dinners al fresco, time with family and friends – these are my favorite things about summer. I thought I’d put together an inspiration board that could certainly be a wedding, but could easily be a simple dinner party in the backyard. The faded blue and white of vintage linen tea towels is an unexpected motif, and an easy way to create a cohesive look.

Mood: dinner al fresco
