Oh my stars, it has been an exciting few days in the Southern Weddings office!! On Friday we revealed the sweet as a peach cover of SWV7, newsstand photos of V7 started to pop up over the weekend on Instagram (!!!), and today, we have the supreme joy of introducing y’all to the newest Southern Weddings Shop signature product: the Southern Weddings Planner!

We’ve been hard at work on our Planner for eleven months, and when I say that we are excited to finally be offering it for sale, know that that is a massive understatement! Our office has a burning passion for getting really, truly GOOD information into the hands of our readers – the exact pieces of advice and the same resources we’d give to our sisters and best friends – and our Planner is the best way we know how to do that. This short (one minute) video from our friends at Good Earth Films helps share the heart of this product:

From the “First Steps After Getting Engaged” to the “Anniversary Gift Guide,” our planner encourages brides to plan marriages more beautiful than their weddings, but also gives them the tools to feel confident and equipped throughout their engagements. True to the mission of Southern Weddings, it includes a special “Marriage Planning” section that will help couples begin married life in a joyful and intentional way!

In addition to being ridiculously useful, we created our Planner to be a gorgeous keepsake for long after your wedding day, with a gold foil cover, watercolor tabs, and illustrations throughout.

You’ll find it to be very interactive, with worksheets and bonus downloads to keep you organized, inspired, and on-track throughout your entire engagement.

I know I speak for all of the Southern Weddings ladies when I say that this Planner – out of everything we’ve created over the last seven years – might be the product we are most proud of. It is useful, it is inspiring, and it is just so darn pretty. It’s worthy of accompanying you throughout your engagement, and we are honored to walk alongside you, too.

The Southern Weddings Planner is available for pre-order in the Southern Weddings Shop now, and we expect these precious packages to ship to their new homes in mid-December! In the meantime, there are tons of new goodies in the Shop, including a brand-new Sweet Tees line and holiday goodies! Proper introductions coming soon for both, but if you just can’t wait… :)

It’s my favorite time of the year! The National Stationery Show recaps are here and I’m thrilled to relive the three days I spent in New York meeting new-to-us stationers, hugging old ones and finding the loveliest wedding stationery around. (Okay, and there’s a really good dose of just plain cute and just adorably Southern stuff in here, too.) With Ruthie of Ruth Eileen Photography by my side, we spent hours ooh-ing and ahh-ing over hundreds of booths. You may have seen up posting up a storm on Instagram (here and here)! Join us in reliving the magic?

Knot & Bow have been familiar to us for quite some time — we love their packaging supplies! But we we happy to see a new collection of gold foil confetti cards, confetti packs, and giant confetti-filled balloons in their lineup — they’d make quite the festive addition to any wedding!

I know Marissa loves this booth as much as I do, being the two resident pug lovers at SW! Emily and Lisa had me hooked when they gave me a Lydia & Pugs calendar for Christmas, so I may have been overly excited when I introduced myself to Dawn, the talent behind these adorable paper goodies. The wedding collection of pugs riding off into married bliss is perfect for dog-lovers everywhere!

The Lifeguard Press both, featuring Lilly Pulitzer, Ban.Do, and Kate Spade was impressive as always. We were most thrilled to hear about a new wedding stationery line from Kate Spade that’s soon to release! Ruthie and I got a sneak peek from our friend Natalie Chang, and all we can say is that y’all are going to love it! (Just a hint: they didn’t stop at stationery — one of my favorite new items requires a needle a thread!)

We’re sure any Southern belle and beau would love to see these sweetly wrapped gifts at their bridal shower. Monogrammed gift wrap and gold foil state cards from Ann Page stopped us in our tracks. (I mean really, y’all — monogrammed gift wrap.)

We were so excited to find Emily Ley’s booth within our first hour of walking the show. As many of y’all know, she’s a good friend of ours and her Simplified Series has helped us stay connected to what matters most, both in work and life. Her new collection of journals and notepads are a beautiful way to keep track of wedding to-dos! (Also, how gorgeous are those flower arrangements by Michelle Edgemont?)

Wonderful surprises were found at Parrott Studio’s booth! Parrott’s newest addition of gold cake toppers was a fun find, and we loved that they were displayed on custom wedding cakes.

We got a good dose of Southern design when we stopped to visit SW friends, Stephanie Creekmur (top image) and Southern Fried Design Barn (bottom image). Y’all might remember seeing Stephanie’s “Sweet as a Peach” print in V5. Southern Fried Design helped us create sweet tea packet business cards!

I love the idea of using Paper Lovely’s letterpresses tags to dress up bridesmaid gifts or bridal shower presents. Not to get ahead of ourselves here, but we had to snap a photo of the “Hello Little One” card! Gals — save this one in your brain for Southern mamas-to-be!

The charm and warmth we found in E. Frances’ booth made us want to stay there and rest awhile. Their adorably illustrated cards were new to us, and we especially loved the gold foil and watercolor collection. Our favorite piece from the booth read, “forget the honeymoon, have a honey life.” Our sentiments exactly!

Part of the fun of walking the Stationery Show is seeing how everyone decorates their booth. Ave Estudio hand painted the lovelies pink blooms on her cream walls. We were hooked as soon as we saw her sweet illustrations and this bright pink gingham card!

We were quite familiar with Betsy White’s wedding collection, but loved seeing them roll out items that are for more every day use! I thought the sticker packs were perfect for dressing up outgoing love letters and paired nicely with their custom stamps.

Gold foil pulled at our heartstrings again and again. Haute Papier’s Haute Papier’s new marriage certificates spoke to us — we love wedding day keepsakes and can imagine these looking amazing framed in a newlywed home! Ruthie and I both spent a lot of time at Dallas-based Read Between the Lines’s booth. They’re all about keeping it simple and heartfelt.

Tammy Smith Design’s embroidery prints reminded me of my mom — we used to embroider pillows and wall art all the time! I love that this tradition lives on with a state-based twist. Just choose your state and follow the lines to add your own embroidery.

Do y’all have a favorite design from this batch? I loved sweet illustrations at E. Frances. Don’t forget to stay turned — there are plenty more paper goodies left to explore!

    E. Frances’ watercolor collection is my favorite and there are far too many “runners-up” to name! :)

  2. avatar Lisa reply

    So hard to choose favorites, but the gold foil state notecards and everything by Betsy White is especially catching my eye!

  3. avatar Emily reply

    Oh my goodness – so many goodies just in one post! I think my favorite might be the “Will you be my bridesmaid” cards from Southern Fried Paper :)

  4. avatar Molly reply

    loved Ave Estudio’s booth! and she was just so so lovely to talk to, too!

    • avatar Ave Estudio reply

  5. avatar Sadie Schureck reply

    Too much loveliness to choose a favorite, but I am a sucker for any of Emily Ley’s products!

  6. avatar Emily Ley reply

    You gals are the sweetest! Loved seeing Nicole and Ruthie in NYC! Thanks for including our booth in your recap today! xo

  7. avatar Stephanie Creekmur reply

    Thank you SO much for including me in your NSS round up! It was so nice to finally meet you in person, Nicole! And so nice to meet you as well, Ruthie! :)

  8. avatar Erin / Knot & Bow reply

    What a lovely round-up! And it was so nice to see some Chapel Hill love in our booth at the show :) Thanks so much for including us!
