Crosswords and Handmade Pillows: Adding Personality to Your Wedding

Happy, Happy Friday! Try to take at least five minutes today to admire something beautiful - a picture of your family, your great grandmother's heirloom tablecloth, or an old favorite t-shirt. Whatever it is, remember life is fleeting! And always take note, there is no parking on the dance floor! :)

For today, I've got a few good examples of couples incorporating their individual style into their wedding. I hope it lends some inspiration to your own wedding ideas!

The groom gave this bride a sepia toned photograph of a birdhouse in a tree, so when it came time to choose their theme, nature seemed most appropriate for this budget wedding.


This ring pillow was made by the bride with vintage handkerchiefs bought on Ebay.


This same sex couple had their friend play "The Rainbow Connection" as they walked out.


This program featured a wedding themed crossword on the back of this couple's program.

Are you planning on adding anything extra personal to your wedding? If so, let us know what it is!

What great ideas! I may try my hand at crafting some of the ring pillows!

i love the handkerchief ring pillow! I also love the tea pots as center pieces, we are using vintage water pitchers as centerpieces and the top image is a wonderful peek into what the final result could look like! We are incorporating our favorite love songs into the stationary, using lyrics as a background that might be simply textural until you look closer and realize its the lyrics to a classic beatles tune, music has been so important to both of us and our process of falling in love that we want to make it a part of our day in more ways than just our first dance or processional.
