Southern Weddings

Paper, paper, everywhere! By this time, my and Cyn’s feet were getting a little sore (she had actually changed from her heels into flats!), but we pressed on, all in the name of paper!

The Smock + Bella Figura booth is reliably one of my favorites – it’s just so colorful! There patterned boxes were a hit as usual, and I liked seeing their new notebooks, as well. It was also a pleasure to meet Erica, who I have worked with often over email but had never met in person before!

Next up was the Ladies of Letterpress booth, where several talented (you guessed it) letterpress printers exhibit together. We loved the sweet cards from Moglea. (Bottom image by Nole from Oh So Beautiful Paper!)

These wine bottle tags by Tella Press were quite cute, and would be great for dressing up wedding or thank you gifts.

Also at the LoL booth were Shauna and Stephen, the geniuses behind Something’s Hiding in Here, Forage, and now, Seed House! I love these fill-in advice cards as a stand-in for a traditional guest book.

Pink Orchid Press designed this darling card which made me think of our Florida brides!

A card all about mason jars?! You know we loved this one from Petal Press! (And aren’t their little business cards adorable?)

Sweet art prints from May Day Studio. These would be pretty hanging at a reception, too!

That’s it for today, y’all – coverage will continue next week! Let’s have another round of applause for Ms Cyn Kain, who snapped these photos!

As promised, I’m back with more paper goodness!

Our next stop was at the For Your Party booth. FYP is a great friend of Southern Weddings (we used their goodies in this shoot, among others!), and it was so fun to meet the people behind the scenes! Tip: Follow them on Twitter – they’ll often tweet 15% off discount codes!

East of India was displaying some fun typographic posters, which I thought would be neat either displayed at the reception or as a keepsake post-wedding.

Dauphine Press was by far one of our favorite booths – everything was so light and pretty and elegant! The paper cakes made out of their patterned paper were gorgeous, too.

This fun cocktail party invitation caught my eye at the Two Paper Dolls booth. I love the casualness of the fill-in style – wouldn’t it be perfect for an engagement party, or maybe a Jack and Jill shower?

This snappy gingham porker from William Arthur would be great for a casual BBQ rehearsal dinner.

The individual cupcake carriers from B.T. Elements were one of my favorite new products at the show. They came in such cute designs, and would be perfect for holding a favor at a bridal shower or bridesmaids’ luncheon! B.T.E. was sharing lots of other cute packaging, as well, including those bright candy or popcorn holders.

A huge thank you to Cyn Kain for snapping all of these images for me! I’ll be back with more soon!

      I couldn’t agree more, Janna! I’m a big fan of snail mail :)

Are y’all on Instagram? The Southern Weddings ladies are! We love how easy it makes sharing photos! Lately, we’ve been breaking out our phone to share everything from the cool packages we get in the mail to what we made for dinner. Here’s a little peek into what’s been going on behind the scenes with the Southern Weddings ladies, in and out of the office.

1. Memorial Day makes us so grateful, especially Lara whose husband, father and grandfather all served our country.

2. We finally got around to decorating our office with beautiful images from our past issues.

3. Warmer weather meant the perfect conditions for Lara’s church to hold an outdoor service.

4. I love my friends who sport vintage truckers hat from rural Kentucky to our rooftop brunch.

5. Stacks and stacks of boxes came in full of V5 goodies!

6. I brushed up on my cornhole game at a friend’s backyard graduation party.

7. Emily’s wedding bracelet. “I found it in my Mom’s stash when I was home last week!”

8. Emily donned her press pass as she headed into her third National Stationery Show! (She brought back tons of paper goodies, y’all.)

9. We gushed over these sparklers that our reader models will be donning for some V5 shoots!

10. Marissa was running late to a baseball game and rocked giant velcro rollers in the car. “I’m sure Southern girls understand the importance of big hair!”

11. Marissa’s ring was at the jeweler because a diamond fell out, so she tried on her grandmother’s vintage for size. Um, we love it!

12. The fair came to town and Marissa and a few of the baseball boys went to the petting zoo. “Don’t tell my husband I think the baby goats are adorable! He wants to buy one!!”

We hope you had an great month, y’all! What were some of your highlights?

    Biggest highlight was having my wedding published on y’alls site! I also loved putting together some dining furniture with the hubs, spending money on the Webster Miami for Target line, going to Destin with some of my best buddies, visiting Corey’s best friend in Dallas (for a Dave Matthews concert), AND going to an M83 concert! Whew!
