when the post office doesn't have a very good selection of stamps for your wedding suite or party invite, think about the big trend now is to put a bunch of pretty stamps on your envelopes to add up to the amount you need to send. pick ones that have similar colors or themes to keep it cute. here are a few of my favorites....

monarch butterflies

honeymooning in hawaii?

these were the ones i used for our wedding


for beach and boat lovers

cloud forms and beautiful landscapes

love these flowers!

might be easy to match your wedding colors with these

valentine's day wedding?

history buffs

is it crazy?

have you ever wanted to have something so crazy at your wedding that people talk about it for years and years? here are a few ideas to get you started (warning: these are not budget-friendly).

photo from

want to have an amusement park at your wedding? dreamland amusements is "your ticket to family fun"! they will travel from vermont to florida to attend your event. you can choose from a bunch of spectacular rides such as the giant wheel (my favorite), the starship 2000, the himalaya (ride while you rock'n roll to the oldies!), the zipper (aka the vomit-inducer), the dream catcher, and the orbiter. i know you want to recite your vows at the top of the giant wheel! haha.

check out the world's largest wedding cake... found on wedding wire's blog, this cake measures 17 feet tall and weighs 15,032 (that's more than five vw beetles and it can feed 59,000 people!). the cake was created by mohegan sun casino's 58 chefs and pastry artisans and they had to use two fork lifts to stack the monstrous cake. how much do you love cake? do you love it like a fat kid?

would you like to have good luck in your relationship? rent an elephant! i found a place called have trunk will travel inc. the company is based out of perris, california, but for the right price will travel anywhere to be at your event. you can have your groom ride into the ceremony on a standard wedding saddle or a grand wedding saddle. the price may be costly but it includes your saddle, travel, elephant decorations (maybe they will match your wedding colors?), costumed trainer, clean up and up to one hour of time.

meet rosie! i think i would ask for her. she looks really sweet. haha.

home decor typography

if you haven't guessed, i love typography and i like to add it to the decor in my house.

i found this b on the street while i was in college (i think a bar was trashing their signage) and it now sits on my desk in the office.

this curtain is also in my office and i found it at target,
love the linen

our silverware with the "b"

hand towel in the bathroom
(i have to admit... brian was actually the one who registered for this towel for our wedding and i didn't like it, but it has really grown on me. thanks brian!)

here are a few ideas to spruce up your home with typography!

ceramic plate, you can get the whole alphabet!
