Personalized Wedding Decor, Ideas and Resources

I made a bit of an activity out of wedding decor - sometimes with Garrett and sometimes solo because men can only take so much. Here are some of my favorite ideas and resources discovered from many, many Google and Instagram searches. 

SAVE ON CRAFTS This is an unbelievably comprehensive website that industry friends and florists kept bringing up. I used it to buy eco-friendly butterly confetti and snowfetti, petal cones, faux cherry blossom garlands, silver chargers, bud vases, mercury votives... I could go on. The shipping costs are pricey but the items themselves are about $5 so you still come out on top.

Virginia Artisans I discovered Virginia Artisans where many good things happen online, etsy. The super hands-on owner, Allen, made everything from our table signage, named after ski trails in scripted metallic wood, and the His & Hers signs for our chairs (below).

Four13 Designs I found owner Lauren Benson by searching #coloradoweddings for ideas on Instagram. She custom-made a seating chart in the form of a detailed trail map of Beaver Creek, our wedding destination. Our venue provided a beautiful wooden easel.

Brass Armadillo While this specific store is only helpful to Colorado brides, your nearest vintage home store will likely inspire dozens of ideas. Garrett and I had a lot of fun roaming throughold, handmade and reclaimed items. We walked away with vintage skis for our guests to sign in lieu of a guest book, tin letters sold individually so we were able to spell out our initials and wedding date, and a very cool tin sign in the shape of an arrow that read BAR, helpful to our moscow mule loving crowd. 

Govino Glasses These are the fanciest recyclable wine and cocktail glasses you could find. Although pricey, they are perfect for outdoor celebrations and Govino will customize all glasses with your wedding logo, initials or date.
