DIY Guet Book Alternative PDF Print
Thursday, 27 November 2014 18:55

Guest books are an important part of any wedding. Not only do they give your guests a chance to leave fun little messages of love and advice, but they also act as a great reminder of who was there to spend your special day with you!


It's obvious that weddings aren't quite what they used to be. Gone are the days of rigid traditions and cookie-cutter nuptials that are all ritual and no personality. Now, the best, most memorable weddings are the ones that stray from traditional customs and include fun, quirky details that are uniquely you. Take the traditional guest book, for example: pages upon pages of plain white paper in a binder-like book that is oh-so-boring and so not personal. Instead, why not present guests with an alternative that is fun and sure to get their creative juices flowing? 
Below, we've created a DIY guest book alternative that is unique, beautiful and awesomely fun! And the best part? It's pretty enough that you'll want to display it year-round.

What you'll need:

· Large, clear vase

· Light-coloured rocks

· Moss (to fill the very bottom of the vase)

· Permanent Marker

alt alt

Fill the bottom of your vase with moss (isn't this purple-hued moss gorgeous?). This is pretty much the only step. Easiest DIY project ever, right?!

Leave your vase, rocks and marker for your guests to sign when they arrive!

DIY Cloth Table Napkins PDF Print
Friday, 21 November 2014 00:00

Weddings and DIY projects pretty much go hand-in-hand nowadays. Not only is crafting your own wedding decor a super easy way to ease the strain on your budget, but it's also a great way to add personal touches into your big day. Weddings filled with intimate, one-of-a-kind details are always the most beautiful and unforgettable.


These awesome DIY cloth napkins are a perfect way to save money on expensive linen rentals, while still adding a unique and intimate touch to your reception tables. See below for our step-by-step tutorial. 
alt alt
What you'll need:

· Kraft paper

· Spray dye

· White cloth napkins

· Craft Punch (I used Martha Stewart Crafts Punch, Vine Trim)


alt alt


Start by using your craft puncher to punch stencils out of kraft paper. The puncher can be kind of tricky to get a hang of right away. Make sure to put pressure on the top of the puncher so it cuts completely through. 

alt alt

Once your stencil is cut, iron your napkins to get rid of any creases and wrinkles (I, obviously, am an afwul ironer!). Lay the stencil on top of the napkin so it is as flat as possible. Next, start spraying! Try to spray the dye from directly above (instead of on an angle) so the force doesn't shift the stencil from its original spot.
alt alt
Make sure to dry the napkins completely before handling them too much (the dye can be a little messy). And there you have it! The end product is a one-of-a-kind napkin that is both elegant and rustic. Try different patterns and designs so each guest has a different napkin at their place setting!

12 Ways to Use Balloons in Your Wedding Decor PDF Print
Tuesday, 18 November 2014 19:41

What's a party without balloons? Ok, we're not talking about the traditional "birthday party" balloons that feature blow-up tin foil caricatures or brightly coloured helium balloons tied off with even brighter ribbon (although for a whimsical affair, we think that could look pretty fab!). Instead, we love the look of using balloons in elegant, subtle ways: think decorating reception tables or adding some fun colour to a ceremony space.


Balloons are easily one of the most affordable and versatile wedding decorations available. Hang balloons from the ceiling of a rustic barn for elegant looking lanterns or use balloon letters to decorate a beautiful dessert table. Feeling adventurous? Have your photographer snap pics of you and your groom in a hot air balloon! Try tying pretty white balloons to the back bumper of your getaway car for that traditional "just married" look or have your flower girl walk down the aisle carrying a bouquet of balloons in lieu of petals. 
Check out how these trendy brides incorporated balloons into their weddings!

How-To: Monogram Your Wedding PDF Print
Thursday, 13 November 2014 19:47
Monograms are the newest trend in the wedding world and one that we here at Precious Invitations hope is here to stay. The monogramming possibilities are endless: from napkins to seating cards, table runners to ceremony programs, there's no limit to the number of wedding-related items a monogram can be stamped, embroidered or embossed onto. 
alt alt alt
                                                                                                                  Initials: Etsy | Surname, "Love": Expressionery
Choosing a monogram can be a daunting process. Start by trying to figure out what you want your monogram to say. Do you want to incorporate your initials? Your new last name? A short poem or phrase? Next, start thinking about any accents that are personal and unique to you and your groom. Rustic laurels, elegant flowers or whimsical hearts are perfect examples. You can purchase monogram templates on Etsy to get you started, and many websites, including, Expressionery, help design your monogram for you.
Next, it's time to figure out exactly what to monogram! Like we said above, the possibilities are truly endless. Try stamping your monogram onto cocktail napkins or having your initials embroidered into your veil. Below, some monogramming examples to get you inspired!
