Gift Wrapping Inspiration

I always see the per­fectly wrapped pack­ages in Living and Weddings when I receive a new issue, and wish I had the time to pull some­thing like that off. Unrealistic as it may be, I’m not ready to give up on the goal yet. So inevitably the ideas get filed away in my inspi­ra­tion folder to be used […]


In case you haven’t heard, yes­ter­day Maddy and Kristen launched the first issue of Nonpareil mag­a­zine, and it is even bet­ter than I expected. The first issue is filled with DIY projects for the bride on a bud­get. And in addi­tion to the amaz­ing con­tent, you can also find a blog and an already-packed down­loads sec­tion. Can’t wait […]

Fun Freebies

Some day when I actu­ally have some free time I would love to make some print­a­bles avail­able for down­load. Not sure when that will hap­pen though, so in the mean­time you should check out these two: Gettin’ Hitched Door Hanger by Rachel of Benign Objects (who is off get­ting mar­ried her­self, by the way) Country Chic Floral Thank You […]

DIY Resource: The Inspired Bride

The recently redesigned Inspired Bride is packed with resources for your DIY projects, from color palettes to plan­ning tools. My favorite part is the design ele­ments direc­tory, which so far con­tains three adorable pat­terns. Click here to down­load them for per­sonal use.

Ribbons and Bows

I’m def­i­nitely a sucker for rib­bons and bows — espe­cially these mod­ern, tai­lored exam­ples from Martha. For even more exam­ples and DIY ideas check out the entire set right here.

Ribbon Overload

M&J Trimming is prob­a­bly one of my favorite stores in New York — I could get lost in there for hours. I had to take a quick trip over there yes­ter­day. And when I vis­ited their site to dou­ble check the hours, I noticed that they have not one, but two blogs (they’re also on twit­ter). Their main blog is devoted […]

Nelly Script

A great inex­pen­sive option for DIY invi­ta­tions would be this new script by Tart Workshop. You can pick the pack­age of Nelly Script and Nelly Flourish up at Font Bros for $60.

DIY Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland is one of my all-time favorite sto­ries, so I love this DIY décor idea from Project Wedding.

Pom Pom Fun

I’m deter­mined to make some­thing for the wed­ding with pom poms (maybe some sort of pack­ag­ing?), espe­cially after see­ing this post on Black*Eiffel and this tuto­r­ial. How fun. Photo from dul­cie via paper n stitch
