The Perfect Card Box

Sponsored

Photos by:

The Perfect Card Box is a little gem for adorable wooden card holders and personalized handmade signs. These are the peanut butter to rustic weddings’ jelly. The olive in every outdoor weddings’ martini. It’s all made of reclaimed wood and handcrafted in Liberty, Ohio too.

The Perfect Card Box locks securely to keep your wedding cards safe. The 8×10 card box displays four photos on the sides + one 5×7 photo or engraving plate on the top. This box is the perfect size for a wedding with 270 guests or fewer and will hold approximately 120 greeting cards. They also offer an 11×14 photo card box for wedding with a larger guest count.

Our personal fave is the Barn wood Wedding Card Boxes. These are made from reclaimed wood from old barns and come in red, white and brown. These are clean and easily blend on a reception table, and would make adorable mail boxes after the wedding!

Check out all of the options from The Perfect Card Box. Use code RUFFLEDBRIDE for $2.00 off any purchase.

Plan My Wedding Please

Ever since I was in grade school, I was obsessed with my penmanship. I would not turn in my homework until it was perfect; it drove my mom crazy! I practiced writing every chance I had and eventually fell in love with this art form. Little did I know, it would be the reason I would fall in love with the wedding industry.

Plan My Wedding Please exists to make every wedding and event magical. My role as wedding planner and calligraphy artist, as cliche as it sounds, is to make your wildest dreams come true. From the little details in signage and invitations, to the big details in wedding gowns, caterers and florals, every detail is important. Every young girl dreams of her wedding day, and I am here to make those dreams become reality. I look forward to working with you!

Palm Springs Garden Wedding

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

I don’t know about you, but whenever I hear the words “Palm Springs” and “wedding” in the same sentence, my heart skips a beat. From trendy to traditional, Palm Springs soirees are always utterly and hopelessly chic. Kim and Jeff’s wedding shot by Paige Lowe is a blend of both with a dash of humor. Their menus featuring the phrase “Welcome to the Jeff and Kim’s Show.” set the tone for a down-to-earth gorgeous day. We love that they chose their venue as their main source of decor – read on to hear it from the bride, Kim:

From the bride, Kim: We wanted to feel like we could be ourselves–natural, light, loving, and fun! We wanted it to have a comfortable and non traditional feel where people could relax and enjoy. No stuffy banquet rooms–no fluorescent lights!

We wanted to have our wedding at a venue where we did NOT need decorations. The O’Donnell house was the main decorative piece. It was a simple, elegant, historic Spanish home. Because the house was my decorative piece, everything else was white. My flower bouquets had white roses and my flower arrangements were full of white hydrangea and white orchids. The flowers sat on a round mirror with a few votive candles to create a romantic ambiance. The table arrangements were also simple. The linens were pearl and the china was classic white. Aside from the flatware and napkins, we had a champagne, wine, and water glass at the table, no fuss.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? 1. Make sure you have a wedding coordinator. Not only do you need someone to facilitate on the day of your wedding, but you need someone with experience to help you organize the small stuff… trust me there are things you have not thought of! Make sure your coordinator is a go-getter who can manage the other vendors and ensure the day goes great! Trust me there are a zillion things that go on the last minute, and you don’t want to have to worry about them. 2. It’s your wedding! Don’t stress over your guests’ wants/needs. This is about you and your soon to be husband sharing your love for each other in a way that expresses who you are. 3. Less is More!

Colorful San Antonio Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

When we hear two artists are marrying each other, we get a special kind of excited — it’s almost a guarantee their wedding is going to blow us out of the water. This San Antonio wedding from Bend the Light doesn’t disappoint. Every detail of this wedding is just about perfect, right down to the handcrafted ceramic place-cards-meet-bud-vases which doubled as favors and the brightly colored bunting everywhere!

From the bride, Jennifer: We got married on the historic grounds of the Southwest School of Art and wanted the feeling of our wedding to match the old charm of the campus. We wanted a small, intimate gathering of close friends and family that was DIY, vintage, colorful and whimsical. We really tried to have everything have a personal touch.

Everyone asked us about color schemes every time we talked wedding. We love color and pattern so much that we couldn’t just limit it to a two color scheme. We kept the eclectic, whimsical theme consistent with lots of patterned papers and fabrics.

We are both ceramic artists and we hand made porcelain bowls as favors for each of our guest. Jennifer also made the chihuahua bride and groom wedding cake topper. We also made ditsy floral covered mason jars for table lighting. Friends and family helped with cutting fabric flags for the alter and love and aloha bunting. A major project for the wedding was the 1,001 origami paper cranes. It symbolized good luck and Ryan’s mom folded almost all of them herself! We had a party at our house and had friends and family string all of them. We used them to decorate the walls of the chapel.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? We really wanted to enjoy the wedding day and not worry about anything. Ryan and I did our research and found vendors (some were even friends!) that understood our style. We chose vendors and friends that we trusted to help make the day special. A friend married us, good friends were our videographers, our friend made our rings, we knew the band – it was important to have a personal connection to everyone at our wedding. We told them to do what they do best and after that left it up to them!
