Welcome your guests, give them directions to the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, photo booth, bathrooms, or just remind them who is getting married with one of these wedding signage ideas:

Oars and Wine Bottles – Be creative! If you’re having a nautical wedding, use oars, or if you’re having a vineyard wedding, use wine bottles. TIp: Have your signage double as a timeline.

Need inspiration for a winter wedding? A few of our editors share their favorites below:

From the Fashion Editor – Accessorize your wedding gown with a fur bolero jacket and your bridesmaids’ dresses with pashmina shawls. Don’t forget a pair of red stiletto pumps.

From the Flowers Editor – Bouquets of evergreens, poinsettias, roses, amaryllis, and stephanotis are a must-have. Maybe hang some mistletoe too? Check out more winter bouquets here.

From the Decor Editor – Fill your centerpiece vases with holly berries and surround with candles to create ambiance.

From the Favors Editor – Warm chocolate chip cookies and a cold glass of milk, gingerbread cookies, sugar cookies, gumdrops, miniature pine trees, you’ll be making your guests spirits merry and bright.

Charming Southern Brunch by The Nichols
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Kristin and John‘s Austin wedding was chock-full of charm and inspiration…  We’re so delighted to share their day with you!  The noontime ceremony and brunch reception were photographed by our favorite Austin-based photography duo, The Nichols.  The couple wed at the Barr Mansion, an exquisite organic event venue on acres of lush green property.  Kristin looked fresh and stunning in a Paloma Blanca ballgown, while the bridesmaids wore violet dresses by J. Crew.  All carried beautiful pink peony bouquets…  We love the way their berry and violet-hued wedding emblem design tied together the color palette and gave that hint of Southern charm. 

A warm rainbow of ranunculus gave life to the reception tables inside the Artisan Ballroom, a rustic building with floor to ceiling windows.  Guests were treated to a classic cake, a strawberry torte, and mini herb garden favors.   A sweet congratulations to Kristin and John!  You can see more from their wedding in our gallery!
