With last year’s Royal Wedding and the economy bounce back, we are seeing wedding decor move a little beyond crafty DIY vintage to a more classic glamour and elegance. Textured linens are a perfect way to add that touch of luxe to your wedding. They can include ruffles, rose embroidery, lace and even sequence. The trick is choose these linens tastefully. Depending on the linen you can cover all your tables with textured linens or just highlight a cake or dessert table or have a textured runner. They will transform your room and WOW your guests!
Take away favors at your wedding express your appreciation and gives your guests a special memento of your celebration. However, traditional knick-knacks like plastic statuettes often get thrown away or retired to a shelf to collect dust. Instead of these typically wasteful options, here are some eco-chic favors that will say “thanks”, help the planet and be put to good use.
These customized napkin favors not only help reduce waste but also makes your dinner table look fashionable. Visit Nicole Porter Design for more designs.
Potted succulents are super easy to care for and go well in any home. They also come in many varieties that make it fun for your guests to pick out their favorite.
What better way to go green than to recycle? Just go to your local hardware store and pick up your favorite paint samples to design your custom coasters. Visit the Crafty CPA blog for how-to instructions.
And what about donating to your favorite charity. Add an extra green touch with these beautiful letterpress donation cards from Bella Figura, a 100% green print shop. All of these favors will surely leave a lasting impression!

Since the first time I met Renee and Nic, I found them to be very charming, down-to-earth and adventurous. They’re avid mountain bikers and even leading up to the wedding day Renee was going on extreme rides. So the Mountain Winery in Saratoga served as the perfect backdrop for their wedding celebration where they shared their personal vows overlooking the city. With such a love for life, they share an even more immense love for each other and Martin Vo Studios captured the magic of the day perfectly. Wishing you both a lifetime of more adventures to come, congratulations Renee and Nic!
