Whilst browsing my wedding blogs, daily… I’ve noticed this great trend in contemporary altars! Couples are masking their creativity once again and even supplying DYI’s, which is a win win in the wedding world.
Any location can be transformed to showcase the bride and the groom, as they take their vows with these eyecatching altar ideas.
I’m a huge fan of paper, anything paper, so when I saw this image of the paper flower altar, I squealed with excitement. Super simple, beautifully coloured and the execution is perfect.
How about putting your bridal party to work! This super innovative, beautiful altar creating a tent over the couple is genius fora circus inspired wedding.
I think this may be my personal favorite. So simple, yet so effective! Streamers. Paper and pink—two of my favorite things!
And lastly, a touch of elegance with this DYI for bubble chandeliers leading the way to the warmly lit altar. Stunning!
Happy Wednesday lovelies!! xo.

My new favorite wedding favour, JAM!
First of all, who really doesn’t like jam? The perfect pairing to peanut butter. The sweet buddy to butter. We all love jam! paperhearts recently whipped up some simply sweet, circular thank you tags to be tied onto the cutest chubby jam jars for Tricia and Kelly’s wedding, which was stunning! Be sure to see some teasers shot by Centree Photography here.
From my first wedding, even to the most recent, I remember the wedding favour being a beautifully wrapped box filled to the brim with melty chocolatey almonds (or something of similar sweetness). My sisters wedding was crafted with a gorgeous ‘candy bar’, lined with clear glass jars of many different heights filled with mouthwatering sweets! (For candy bar eye candy, do visit Amy Atlas, the queen of styling tables).
As time goes on, couples are becoming more and more creative, with a different dose of sweetness.
Post cards from a destination wedding, SO clever!
And what is even more clever is combining the escort cards with the wedding favour. Diana and Josh went vintage hunting to find bowties and scarves for all of their guests! So smart and beautifully presented.
