One of my most prized possessions (and one of the most frequently-admired items in my home!) is the giant canvas in our living room. It’s a large (24×30 inches) photo of the sky at sunset on our wedding day, taken by our wedding photographer. The sky that day was the most beautiful ombre of pink, lavender, and blue, and walking by our canvas never fails to transport me back to being a bride!

Because of this, one of the best pieces of advice I offer my engaged friends is to ask their photographer to take a few landscape shots during their portrait session. That way, you can prominently display a reminder of the day you said “I do” without decorating your walls with only your faces :)

Whether you choose to highlight a portrait, a landscape, an engagement photo, or something else entirely, our friends at Canvas HQ are a great source for printing your beloved photos! They offer sizes ranging from 6″ to 96″, all at reasonable prices (and they’re always running coupon offers, so don’t order without one!).

I’d love to hear: how have you remembered your wedding in your home? With a canvas? Framed photos? An album? Something else? Tell me!

This post is sponsored by Canvas HQ. Thanks for your support of the brands who make Southern Weddings possible!

    We are doing a charm cake at my nieces bridesmaid luncheon. Should the cake be pink and what is the significance of the color??

      Hi Colleen! How fun! No, the cake does not have to be pink – I’ve never heard of that! Most of the ones I’ve seen have been white, but you can choose any color you like! :)

UPDATED: Read below for new + improved contest rules!

Hi friends! I hope you are all enjoying the new layout as much as I am. I’ve spent hours poring over the new Wedding Resources section and perusing Lara, Katharine, and Emily’s new personal blogs, much to my professors’ dismay. But have you seen Emily’s paper pick of the week yet? How could I focus on classes when there are so many new goodies to discover on the Southern Weddings blog?

Speaking of paper, I want to introduce all of you to a fabulous invitation studio straight out of NYC (but you’d never know it…). Swiss Cottage Designs is a small company that makes 100% custom invitation suites completely tailored to their customers. They may be based in New York, but they remind me of one of those old time Southern mom-n-pop shops where every customer is a friend.

Since this is our very first contest post on the new and improved Southern Weddings site, we wanted to make sure that the winner this week got an extra special, sentimental prize:

Win: Customized couple prints, including mat and frame, based on a picture of you and your significant other from Swiss Cottage Designs. Really, you’ll want to hang this right over the fireplace.

To Enter: We want to know what three words sum up you + your sweetie to a tee!

This giveaway will end Monday, December 13 at midnight. Send keep those comments coming!

    silhouette artwork would be perfect for C and I because we just can’t seem to take a good picture together! that’s probably because the three words that best describe us are:
    a silhouette print (because it won’t depict our complete inability to both look nice in a picture together, ever) is basically our dream come true!

    Worth 1000 Miles: Brandon and I can not wait to celebrate our May 29 wedding. We’ve racked up thousands of miles fighting the distance between us. We are best friends, we laugh, we have tearful goodbyes, we fight over covers and who has to walk the dog, but we love each other more than life itself, and are counting the days til we can fight over the covers every morning.

    We are Bashert. In Yiddish, this perfect match is called “bashert,” a word meaning fate or destiny. The word “bashert” can be used to refer to any kind of fortuitous good match, such as finding the perfect job or the perfect house, but it is usually used to refer to one’s soul mate. My other half brings out the best in me and still loves me at my worst. I am reminded every day how lucky I am to have such a loving “bashert.”
