Tag: glitter cake topper

One challenge I faced when planning my wedding was that I wanted to know ALL my options before making a decision–every bridesmaid dress, every napkin color, and so on and so forth. There are countless places out there that carry wedding details and decor, but clicking through pages and pages of products is enough to make any bride’s head spin! We love sharing our favorite sources with y’all in the hopes that it’ll help you find the item you’re looking for quickly and check it off your list, freeing up time for you to shut your laptop and go hang out with your beau. With that in mind, if “find a cake topper/ring bearer pillow/getting ready outfit/chair sign” is currently looming on the top of your list, we’re delighted to introduce you to the Emily Steffen Shop!

As a wedding photographer by day, Emily is certainly no stranger to the heart and thought brides pour into planning for their big days. From her whimsical selection of celebratory cake toppers to her custom state-shaped ring pillows (which you may have spotted in Southern Weddings V7!), each product was designed and created by hand with brides in mind, and the goal of putting smiles on their faces. It would be hard not to smile unwrapping one of these sweet packages, don’t you think?

We strongly believe that a wedding is only the beginning of the good stuff: marriage. Because of this, we love when wedding details can be thoughtfully reused or incorporated into your newlywed life and/or home decor–it’s a great way to get more bang for your buck when choosing details, as well as a sweet way to remember your special day daily. Emily shares our heart for marriage, so she ensures that all of the products in her shop can be easily incorporated into post-wedding life. Can’t you picture wearing that cute “Happy Day” tank to the farmer’s market or the gym, or topping a birthday cake with a glittery “Hooray” topper? So fun!

We’re thrilled that Emily has sweetly offered to give one product of the winner’s choice away to one lucky SW reader! To enter, visit the Emily Steffen Shop and then leave a comment to let us know which item you would choose. A winner will be randomly selected on Tuesday, June 23. Good luck!

When Ruthie sent me images of everything we had seen at the National Stationery Show, I was at a loss when it came to narrowing them down. Aside from beautiful designs on paper, the most creative minds in the stationery industry have also created some amazing gift options. I loved finding wedding cards in the same booth as wrapping paper and house-warming or bridesmaid presents (and floral arrangements and streamers)! One of our favorite booths had a gift item that we thought was too cute not to share. Read on to find out what it is and how to win it!

We’ve been longtime admirers of AHeirloom’s gorgeous state cutting boards, so seeing the heft and wood grain up close was a treat! In addition to their famous state shapes, AHeirloom also makes artwork into regular round and rectangular boards and into sparkly cake toppers!

Cute cut-outs and sheep are really all that it takes to make me stop for awhile. Egg Press’s fun illustrations in heartwarming colors were extra clever.

Mattie and Amanda of Puddleduck Paper Co. are the sweetest gals, and their booth was full of whimsical hand-lettering and bold color choices. The bright yellow ombre invitation was even more gorgeous in person!

If anyone knows how to make paper products the most fun thing you’ve ever encountered, it’s Ladyfingers Letterpress. Arley-Rose and Morgan are two incredibly talented and creative women who specialize in punny cards, hand-lettering and all things colorful and innovative. I love that they’ve added custom address stamps to their collection — Arley-Rose’s unique hand lettering gets to dress up all sorts of mail now!

Fig. 2 Design’s booth was one big celebration, with neon, glittery monograms and confetti galore. Their striped invitation suite featured the calligraphy of Lindsay Letters and a festivities card that expanded accordion-style, making the suite twice as fun.

I will confess that by the time Ruthie and I came across Live Love Studio, the booth looked so comfy and welcoming that we really just wanted to sit for awhile. Of course, owner Kate is from Tennessee and knows a thing or two about hospitality. Aside from the hanging plants and soft rug, we found seed packets, mini love notes and a print that is officially on my wish list. Cute and comfy things aside, we are seriously impressed with how Kate lives out her company tagline, “Happy paper goods to brighten the world.” Each purchase from her shop provides a meal to a hungry tummy in East Tennessee.

Little Low’s booth was a bright and happy spot in the middle of a busy intersection of booths. I am just smitten with Caitlin’s fancy and fun hand lettering and the colorful illustrations on her prints. Her regions map and produce chart were two of my favorites.

I imagine that stepping into Sugar Paper’s booth is much like stepping into a bridal boutique. Soft colors, gorgeous flowers and beautiful designs fill up the walls. I was thrilled to see note cards made especially for mom and dad on the wedding day proudly displayed. We think wedding days are momentous occasions for them, too!

Ruthie and I were first drawn into Karen Adam’s booth by her delicate and feminine illustrations. It wasn’t until we read the messages on her cards that we were truly fawning over them!

The intricacy and detail in the paper from Alexis Mattox was gorgeous! Her wooden cards and table numbers were fun, but the lacy bride and groom signs were truly lovely.

The Pink Orange was full of fun and thoughtful surprises. We loved their ampersand and Mr and Mrs designs for wedding day decor, but we were really impressed by their bridesmaid gifts. Acrylic trays reading, “Will you be my bridesmaid?” can be customized, so that your gals can remove the paper liner and replace it with their favorite pattern after they’ve agreed to be by your side down the aisle. The “Tie the Knot” earrings, a partnership with Lola Accessory Boutique, were the most adorable play on words and provide your gals with a little something pretty for the big day, too!

In fact, when we posted an image of the earrings on Instagram, y’all loved them so much that we couldn’t resist a giveaway!

    I have the BEST bridesmaids. They range from sisters, to childhood friends, to sorority sisters and each one has made a huge impact on my life. Each of them is always there for me for advice, a shoulder to cry on, someone to laugh with, and someone to go on adventures with! Some of my best memories are with these girls! I am so honored that they get to stand by my side on my wedding day.

  3. avatar Alison reply

    I would love to gift those sweet earrings to my bridesmaids! They are the most supportive, loving friends and sisters, and I wouldn’t be who I am today without them!

  4. avatar Kari reply

    What DON’T I love about my bridesmaids? They’re loving, funny, supportive, crazy, and I couldn’t imagine a better group of girls to share in our special day!

  5. avatar Molly reply

    Nicole, I have loved reading these recaps! And Ruthie’s photos are gorgeous!!! I love NSS – so many amazing designers who push me to be a better designer each day! And some of the warmest people you’ll ever meet! Thanks for the recaps!!!

  6. avatar Christine reply

    My bridesmaids are amazing women who range from my cousins, childhood friends, and even fairly new friends. They are are all family to me though, even if not by blood. I am luck to have such a sweet group of seven ladies stand by me when I wed the man of my dreams.

  7. avatar Caroline Leonard reply

    I have the sweetest bridesmaids in the whole wide world!

  8. avatar Morgan reply

    No question….the thing I love most about my bridesmaids is the consistency of their friendships.

  9. avatar Margaret Baggett reply

    My bridesmaids were a compilation of some of my childhood friends, my new sister in law, my favorite cousin, two of my new adulthood friends, and my lifelong BEST friend as my maid of honor. I was surrounded by people who have done life with me and know my heart and soul. I wouldn’t have done it any other way! Never feel pressured to include someone you don’t really want to! That only opens the doors to unnecessary awkwardness or potential drama. Surround yourself with your favorite women on earth and your wedding day will be that much more special and perfect.

  10. avatar Nicole reply

    This is absolutely everything my wedding is about. My bridesmaids are my friends, but more then that. They are my sisters and family and for them to be apart of our big day this September is going to be a huge blessing in my life.

  11. avatar Meredith reply

    Lola Accessory Boutique is one of my favorite stores in my hometown, Saratoga Springs, and I love following the work of The Pink Orange on Instagram and Facebook. I also read Southern Wedding daily! So this giveaway involving all three of these companies is to me one of the best collaborations ever! So excited to see, if any, future collaborations with you all. #FavoriteThings

  12. avatar Lauren reply

    I love that my bridesmaids went out of their way to make my wedding day special. They were all so selfless and caring!

  13. avatar Sarah K reply

    These are adorable! My bridesmaids have been by my side for most of my life, which is why I couldn’t imagine not having them there on my wedding day. They keep me calm and happy!

  14. avatar Kelly reply

    My bridesmaids and my best and closest friends! I honestly cannot imagine anyone else by my side supporting me during my special day.

  15. avatar Bridget reply

    I am getting married in 2015 and am getting ready to ask my girls to stand by my side! I just adore these and can’t imagine a cuter way to ask the ones you love to stand by your side on your special day! I hope to share these with them soon!

  16. avatar Megan reply

    I’m having such a hard time deciding how I want to ask my girls to stand next to me at my wedding! This is perfect!

  17. avatar Kaleigh reply

    I am biased but I had the best bridesmaids in the world. My sister, sis-in-law, best friend since 5th grade and two of my other best girls. I’m thankful that they were there with me because they know me better than anyone, did everything to make my day go as smoothly as possible and loved me even when I was a stressed out bride.

  18. avatar Elyse G. reply

    They have always been by my side…during my best days and my worst. I couldn’t ask for a better group of ladies to stand by my side. *fingers crossed*

  19. avatar Danielle O’Malley reply

    What I love most about all 8 (yes 8!) of my bridesmaids is that each one has a very specific role in my life. They each come from my different worlds: family, high school, college, work, etc. It’s so nice that after all of these years I can find a way to say thank you to each of them!

  20. avatar Jenny Lucas reply

    My bridesmaids come from different times in my life and didn’t know each other before I asked them to be a maid, but they all get along SO well and are nothing but supportive! Also, two of my bridesmaids are brides-MEN, which I think is fabulous :)

  21. avatar Carolyn reply

    I love how each and every one of my 9 (!!) bridesmaids is so different from the other but each holds a special place in my life and my heart. They are all special in their own way and forever will be.

  22. avatar Kelli reply

    I have the best bridesmaids because they keep me sane when I begin to feel overwhelmed. They also send me sweet ideas for my wedding decor and tips on how to not stress leading up to the big day :)

  23. avatar Ashley Costanzo reply

    I love my bridesmaids because they are my sisters and closest friends. They make me smile and are always there for me!

  24. avatar Michelle reply

    Love catching up with your blog! Definitely a great place to gather ideas for my big day!!

    I love that they are all willing to put their lives on hold to be there to help me celebrate my bug day in a different state!

  26. avatar Sarah R reply

    I only have one bridesmaid, but she is the best! We have been through thick and thin, laughing…and crying. But no matter what we have been through, she will be my best friend until the end. I’m so lucky to have her in my life!

  27. avatar Nicole-Lynn reply

    I love that bridesmaids offer their love and support throughout the engagement journey! So fun and important to have that!

  28. avatar Deidre reply

    Love Sugar Paper LA and those earrings!

  30. avatar Claire reply

    They’ve always been there for me and they’re excited to be there for me when I get married!

  34. avatar Shannon reply

    What don’t I love about my bridesmaids? They are sweet, caring, supportive, and there for me whenever I need them. They also love to have a good time!

  35. avatar Jordan Troublefield reply

    Love all my girls impact that they have had during the different seasons of my life. Such sweet personalities all around.. and the best support group! No better people to have stand by my side

  36. avatar Madison reply

    My 5 bridesmaids are all friends. I love their honesty, sincerity and friendship. We live across the 5 edges of the continental US today (Boston, Jacksonville, Charlotte, Seattle & Maui), but the moment we are in the same room again it as if no time has passed. It is the best feeling in the world.

  37. avatar Kelly Hughes reply

    My bridesmaids have stood by me through thick and thin. I love them!

  38. avatar Victoria reply

    I love that my bridesmaids have huge hearts and are so excited to share my day with me!

  39. avatar Erin O. reply

    I love my bridesmaids for their kind hearts and adventurous spirits! Plus two of them are my sisters, so of course that’s extra meaningful!

  40. avatar Aly reply

    The fact that she always listens to me when I need to talk the most

  41. avatar Katelyn reply

    I am the luckiest bride-to-be to have my beautiful bridesmaids be a part of all that is leading up to our wedding in 2015. They mean the absolute world to me. There isn’t anything that I do not love about these lovely ladies. They are thoughtful, sweet, kind, helpful, sincere, dependable, fun, loving, …and the list goes on and on! These darling earrings would be a sweet way for me to thank these girls for playing such a special role in my every day life and on this exciting journey to tie the knot (or pretty bow).

  42. avatar Vanessa Miller reply

    My bridesmaids are all wonderful and my favorite thing about each of them is they have all come from different parts of my life. They all know me from different times but we all share something special!

  43. avatar Grace reply

    My bridesmaids include my sister, my future sister, and three ladies who might as well be my sisters (partners in crime since 1st grade!). My bridesmaids are among the most important people in my life, and I want my wedding to be as special for them as it will be for me.

  44. avatar Jo reply

    They are smart, funny, and accomplished women! I am proud to call them my friends and family.
