This week we’re focusing on Pantone Cognac, a warm neutral with a vintage vibe. We paired it with shades of lilac, mauve and cream for a sophisticated theme that’s still light and fresh.
We’re always inspired by the beautiful wedding dresses and decor from BHLDN, so we were thrilled when they wanted to create an inspiration board for us. Inspired by the Exquisite Love wedding invitation from The BHLDN Collection for Wedding Paper Divas, the board is pure romance. From soft hairstyles to ethereal chair banners, this is for a timeless bride who knows her big day is all about love.
This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Sarah and Tanner, held at the Wentworth Golf Club in Jackson, NH. The wedding flowers were locally grown sunflowers and zinnias, and the bridal party constructed the bouquets themselves. The wedding cake was made by the brides father, and the bride made the cake topper.

While our personalized wedding invitation designs offer plenty of options for customization, many brides choose to go above and beyond, adding DIY elements to their wedding invitations.
Since we’re heading into the winter wedding season, we put together a snow inspired twist on the traditional invitation. Simple but stunning, this easy DIY adds a ton of personality to your wedding invitation.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Wedding invitations
- Thick ribbon
- Thin ribbon
- Plastic snowflakes
- Glue or adhesive
- Match a thick ribbon to your wedding invitation. Wrap the ribbon around the invitation and cut, leaving a bit of overlap. Secure with glue or double sided tape on the back of the invitation. We suggest that you do not attach the ribbon to the invitation, but instead to itself.
- Turn the invitation back over to the front. Take the thin ribbon and tie a knot around the middle of the thick ribbon. It should slightly pinch the thick ribbon.
- Take the plastic snowflake and tie another knot with the thin ribbon to attach the snowflake to the ribbons. Depending on your snowflakes, you may need to secure it with a small bit of string.
- Complete the invitation by tying the thin ribbon into a pretty bow.
Remember to keep the extra materials in mind when choosing an envelope! This DIY project would be perfect to tuck inside a pocket fold.
This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Carrie & Jacob, held at My Vintage Venue in Mesa, AZ. The bride and groom have always mashed their names up (Carrie and Jake) together which makes CAKE so it’s been the couples signature during their courtship and used in various elements of the wedding. The bride did a lot of DIY projects for her wedding including coasters as thank you gifts for their guests, which were stamped with Cake 3.30.13.
