Wedding Trend: Burlap

Burlap is a big trend this year. It's perfect for a vintage or rustic wedding, and if done tastefully, can look very elegant and pretty. Some cool ways we've seen it: tied around the back of a chair in a bow, as a table runner, wrapped around bouquets and mason jars and used to display table numbers. The cool thing is there's SO many ways you can incorporate it into your decor, and it's fairly inexpensive. Check out some of the pictures below to get ideas on how to incorporate it into your wedding!

Wedding Guestbook Alternatives

I was recently at a wedding that the couple requested their guests sign baseballs instead of a traditional guestbook. I thought it was a really neat, different idea and it allows the couple to be creative and showcase something that is special to them. After your wedding, instead of storing a guestbook in a drawer somewhere, you can frame and hang a special picture your guests signed, or incorporate a bench into your decor. It's a cool way to remember who helped celebrate your special day without having to flip through a book years down the road!

Wedding Trend: Mercury Glass

There is just something so pretty about mercury glass. We’re seeing it everywhere lately, in the form of vases, votive holders, and light fixtures. And the bridal world has definitely taken notice.

The great thing about mercury glass is that it's very versatile. Whether you're planning a modern wedding or something more vintage and rustic, you can dress it up or down to match your decor. 

 While it's beautiful just by itself, when lit, it exudes such a gorgeous, warm, sparkly glow that adds a very intimate, elegant feel to your room.
