Would you love to receive a Plumed pillow as a gift? I know I would.

I first became infatuated with Megan Hamilton when I was searching for a unique and memorable wedding gift to give my mother. When I came across the idea of a custom wedding dress sketch, I knew that I had finally found what I had been searching for. I ended up giving my mother a sketch that had her wedding dress next to my own, and decided to get sketches created for my matrons of honor as well. With different design options to choose from, I couldn’t think of a better keepsake to give a special family member, future mother or sister-in-law, a bride or groom to be, or even to give or receive as an anniversary gift. Megan Hamilton is so talented, her work has been featured in The Knot,  and has also created the logo for a Mississippi Bridal Boutique

These days, there seems to be endless amount of ways that couples meet. There are the childhood crushes, the high school sweethearts, the college lab partners, the relationship that began with a blind date, a Facebook message, or through a mutual friend… whatever the situation, the list goes on.  And with every new relationship, there are sure to be special locations that play a huge part in the story of the relationship as well. Why not recognize these special places with mementos for your home, or items to add to your ETSY Wedding Registry.

The place you met, the state you wed, the island you honeymooned or the location you were engaged; what way do you plan to recognize, display or share these special places?

After addressing hundreds of save the date invitations for our own wedding last summer – a result from arguing with my label printer alignment – I was on a mission to find a more efficient, yet personalizable option. A custom address stamp was the solution. We purchased our first one from expresionery.com, however there are many creative options to choose from that can be found on sites like ETSY (of course)! Whether you are sending save the dates, invitations, thank you’s or Holiday cards; consider custom address stamps. As you watch that guest list grow, you will be happy that you did.

From elegant, fun, casual, whimsical, simplistic to rustic, there is a stamp that can fit every theme, any time of the year.

When it comes to weddings, we all know the saying something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.  But what you may not know are the meanings behind each of these items – items that are believed to bring you good luck on your wedding day.

Tradition states that something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness and something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity. Luckily, tradition doesn’t lay any ground rules to what these items have to be, and thanks to ETSY the options are endless!
