It wasn’t too long ago that ring pillows were lookin pretty lame….thankfully, we’ve been seeing some cool new looks and ideas with DIY’s, Etsy shops and blogs! From books to pillow, to bowls and nests, you can pretty much use anything! Here are my top 10:
1st row: Emersonmade, Llubav, Pomme Frites
2nd row: No144, Martha Stewart Weddings
3rd row: Paloma’s Nest, 100 Layer Cake, Wee Gardens
4th row: Wedding Aisle, Bklynpillow w/details from Thoughtful Day
The fabulous Caroline from Paloma’s Nest just released these darling NEW bicycle ring bowls in her shop, and is giving one away here on Brooklyn Bride! Just leave a comment below and the winner will be announced on Friday.
If you’ve got out of town guests, you’ll probably want to give them some goodies for the hotel room, but why not make the bag something they’ll want to keep too?

Here are my Save-the-Dates, designed by the amazing Erica Miller at Thoughtful Day. Erica worked with pictures of our venues–an art deco movie theater (ceremony) and a 19th century church turned event space (reception.) The “church” has some taxidermy in it, and Erica did a fantastic job of capturing the vibe of our impending Central PA wedding! People FLIPPED OUT when they got these babies in the mail… Erica’s wonderful, and I can’t wait to see our finished invites!

Its always a thrill for me to see a good friend do something amazing like start a business…Erica and I have been chatting about this day for a while, so I’m glad to finally be able to introduce Thoughtful Day to you! Erica has designed a line of wedding stationery that is mix and match, so that each is customized to your own tastes without going custom!
The Melodie Collection allows couples to mix or match their letterpressed wedding invitation suites. The option is completely up to them. This allows couples to not only come up with their own unique collection, but also pick a collection that will fit within their budget. The collection prices are not fixed, which allows couples to be creative with not only the look of their wedding invitation suite but also the price. The Melodie Collection can work with all budgets! You may opt to pick a two color letterpressed invitation and a one color letterpressed rsvp to help with cost, the freedom to choose is what the Melodie Collection is all about. All four of the themes work mixed together or completely matched. The choice is yours! There are three shown colorways, but custom colors are available as well.
I’m in love with all Erica’s work and know you will be too, so head over to Thoughtful Day and check everything out! [Did you know she did the B-List branding AND my own wedding totes too??] So proud of you girl! Check out the blue colorway over at 100 Layer Cake.
As for me, I’m taking the rest of the week off…planning a conference is not easy work and I need a little breather! I’ll be back on Monday…
