Lace Of Cakes.

No offense to the brides and grooms out there, but my favorite wedding moment is typically the eating of the cake. Chocolate is preferred, although red velvet is always a pleasant surprise. Seriously though, what type of cake wouldn't look delicious stacked atop these gorgeous lace cake plates!

Bloody Skulls? I Do.

A few years back, friends of ours surprised us (and other partygoers) by putting on an impromptu Halloween wedding. I'm thinking that these bloody skull lollipops would've been the perfect post-nuptial delight!

Get The Word Out.

Sure, invitations via mail are the wedding standard. But we'd prefer a method that'll scream "do not miss this event!" Pretty sure, this amazing customized wedding poster will do the trick.

Theme Of The Week: Wedding Bells.

We couldn't help but notice that a lot of folks were getting married this weekend. And that got us thinking. No, not about getting married (sorry, Mom and Dad), rather, what would a handmade wedding look like?

Could place settings be inspired by chalkboards?

Would the bride perhaps sport a vintage wedding gown?

Could recycled paper substitute for rice?

Will handmade cake banners spawn a new wedding tradition?

This week, we're searching for handmade (and vintage), wedding-inspired finds. So all you brides, grooms, newlyweds, honeymooners, married folks and even contemplating couples, stay tuned--this week's for you!
