Personalized DRUNK IN LOVE Napkins

There's a reason I love these DRUNK IN LOVE napkins more than I normally would. And it caught me by complete surprise. It's something called customer service - over the phone with another beautiful human being - and getting harder to find on Etsy and elsewhere. These talented graphic designers (with over 20 years of graphic design experience), offer personalized cups, coasters, favors and flutes. They are at your service seven days a week - by phone. Shown here are gold personalized wedding napkins (at about thirty five cents each), available in cocktail, luncheon and dinner size, all sold in sets of 100.

Dr. Seuss Inspired Wedding Print

Thing One and Thing Two. You jumped for joy as they upset everything in little Sally's house. A cat in a white striped hat and red bow tie (balancing her angry pet fish on the tip of his umbrella) undid the damage with a machine made of magic. The perfect fantasy for a dull rainy day. Dr. Seuss made a career out of bringing us quirky looking characters that were weird and wonderful. Over 600 million of his well-loved children's books sold worldwide. Who wouldn't cherish this "mutual weirdness" whimsical wedding gift? This Dr. Seuss inspired wedding print will fit a standard 8 x 10 frame (fun and affordable at less than $15) and can be personalized with the names of the groom and bride.

DIY Pallet Wedding Photo Collage

Who would have thought that a plain wooden pallet and a variety of dollar store frames could make such an unforgettable rustic wedding photo collage. And yet, here they are. The time you pitched your tent and hiked up to panoramic Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park. The two weeks in Costa Rica where you fell in love with the hand painted oxcarts in the quaint little city of Sarchi. A hot and humid weekend in Manhattan where you shared snow cones on a bench in Central Park. All of these memories lovingly arranged, in an elegant and affordable wedding photo display.

Rustic Do Not Disturb Door Hanger

Put this rustic Do Not Disturb door hanger outside of my honeymoon suite?  Not going to happen, even if I'm staying at The Plaza on the edge of Central Park. It's much too lovely and if it were stolen, would surely break my heart. It would come in handy for the tedious task of addressing wedding invitations or writing clever thank you notes. Or taking a nap because I can't make a choice between Teriyaki Chicken or Blackened Tenderloin with Wild Mushroom Sauce. At only $18.00, this stylish pine stained Do Not Disturb hanger would make a well-loved (and much appreciated) bridal shower gift.

Rustic Mr and Mrs Wedding Table Decorations

The hardest part of designing these rustic wedding table decorations will not be hanging the sheer curtain panels, creating the tissue paper pom poms, or stringing the battery operated fairy lights. It's tracking down letters large enough to create this warm and welcoming look. The large wooden letters shown here appear homemade - the "M" looks like an upside down "W" which gets the job done. My usual sources at eBay, Etsy and Amazon offer nothing this rustic, quirky and cute. Maybe your Dad or brother's new Black and Decker circular saw could be pressed into service to create your own large and lovely Mr. and Mrs. wedding sign.

Boho Flower Girl Dress

Something was missing on that unforgettable December day my Dad and I proudly walked together down the aisle in San Pedro, California. A flower girl. And there's really no excuse because my brother had a charming little girl - blonde hair and big blue eyes - who looked so much like my childhood photos, we could have passed for twins. She doesn't resemble one of my own, but this lovely brunette looks so enchanting in her boho flower girl dress (only $32 at Country Couture on Etsy) with ruffled ivory lace bodice and elegant cap sleeves, she steals my heart away.

Unforgettable Family Wedding Photos

Grandma and Grandpa aren't exactly Romeo and Juliet. She says the man on the moon has more personality than him. He says her meatloaf is outlawed in all fifty states. But once, they too were in their twenties. He was six foot two, she was slim and sassy. He was a handsome American soldier who passed his free time in a bar where she worked overseas in Brisbane, Australia. The poor country boy from rural Oklahoma and the sophisticated Irish girl serving beer in her rich uncle's hotel, tried their best to make it work. And many times failed. That was the beginning of their family story, in all honesty. Their somewhat mismatched marriage made my happy one possible. I give them thanks, today and every day.  Honor your past, present and future with family wedding photos lovingly displayed.

Morgan) who balanced his ball-breaking banking career with the love of bright and shiny gems. This vintage inspired, breathtakingly beautiful 14k rose gold engagement ring is available in sizes 4 to 9.

It Was Always You - Wedding Cake Topper

I fell in love today. Not with the beautiful Italian boy I married years ago that thinks my lack of housekeeping skills is temporary and my small waistline permanent.

Wedding Candy Buffet Apothecary Jars

Whoever dreamed up the idea of a candy buffet, I thank you for being a child at heart. Because beautiful glass jars full of Jelly Belly jelly beans such as Cantaloupe, Cappuccino, Coconut and Cotton Candy make everyone feel like a surprised six year old with a brand new bike. It's true you can find apothecary jars at Michael's and A C Moore, but I found these at Save On Crafts where the selection is amazing and the prices below retail. I have no affiliation with this online company, but have shopped there many times myself for a great variety of discount wedding supplies. Follow the link below each photo to find the current price.  All of these would be exceptionally stunning for your next birthday or wedding candy buffet.
