A Little Something Extra

There are so many special elements that you can incorporate into your big day to make it your own. One of my favorites is a wedding dress label that can be sewn into your beautiful gown. There are so many different ways to design these whether it be your new initials and your wedding date or a special message remembering someone who may have passed, the opportunities are endless. A lot of girls get it sewn in blue so that it can also be used as their something blue. There are tons of shops on ETSY that design these labels, and they are all beautiful and very reasonably priced. Enjoy!

Postcard Guest Book

I must give credit where credit is due, so I want to give a big shout out to my cousin Ashely who shared this idea with me while we were on vacay at the beach! Couples are always asking me for clever ideas for a guest book that isn't your typical sign in book, and while their are TONS of ideas out there I had never heard of this cute one. Creating a postcard guest book is easy. You provide postcards that are already addressed to the happy couple so that your guests can write them a special message or words of advice. Then your guests put the completed postcards into a basket, a jar, or something like that. At the end of the night someone responsible (maybe your mom, dad, aunt, etc...) will take them and mail one postcard to the couple daily or weekly whatever you choose, so you have a special little something coming in the mail for you to look forward to. You can then either take the postcards and create your own book or think of a clever way to save them! I just thought that this was different, cute, and fun to continue to get reminders from your big day! What are you doing or what have you done for your guest book?
