Destination Wedding Guest Book Alternatives

You’ll likely want a personal, handwritten memory of each of your guests who traveled near and far to be at your big day.  But gone are the days of a traditional guestbook, now the options are endless as to what they will sign!  If you’re hosting a destination wedding, why not theme it accordingly?  Ask your guests to sign postcards that you send back to yourselves to read when you get home!  Or create a statement piece in the home of a globe autographed by all your loved ones.  Shells can be sign in pages, maps make great options, even wooden cutouts of the place you plan to go.  Take your guestbook inspiration from around the world or the spot on which you wed!

Orange Ombre for Fall

We love fall colors, especially when getting married in the great outdoors!  If your destination wedding is outside then consider saying I do to an ombre orange color palette!  We’ve pulled together a few fun ideas – from an ombre aisle and invitation to even a dress with a touch of color to it!  If you’re bold enough, don’t be shy about working with burnt orange on your big day!

Wedding Cakes Around the World

We do things a little different here in the states, not every country serves up a swanky three tiered wedding cake.  Some (like Italians) make the cake in front of the guests during the reception, while others (like the French) serve up pastries stacked to make a cake.  Here are a few wedding cakes from around the world to inspire your sweet side on the big day!

Sweet Wedding Signs

Today’s post may not be destination specific, but we got a little mushy at the office and wanted to share our favorite love sentiments on signs! These make great accessories at a ceremony, on a cake table or just about anywhere (and even in your home or yard after the big day!).  Will you share your love on a sign?
