Personalized wedding stamps are probably the last thing on your mind with so many “big” wedding planning items to tackle first. Really, though, they should be one of the very first items you check off your to-do list. When you think about it, they actually play a huge role as you’ll find yourself wishing you had one not only for your wedding stationery but for your wedding decor and wedding favors too.
Plus, rubber wedding stamps made by Simply Stamps are custom, meaning you won’t find them anywhere else. Today we’ve partnered up with Simply Stamps to share their lovely personalized wedding stamps collection!

Professional photos from your wedding are wonderful but sometimes the candids from your guests contain some amazing moments too! Rather than chasing down your friends and family asking for them to send you their photos and overwhelm your email inbox with giant attachments, check out DropEvent (website), a service that helps you set up easily accessible photo galleries that your guests can share photos to.

This diverse collection of elegant and on-trend wedding websites comes to us from Riley & Grey. Such beautiful work! Here’s Marissa, founder of Riley & Grey, to tell us more:
I think what we’re most excited about with the new collection is that we captured some really popular and traditional wedding themes, but in a new way. For example, we get tons of requests for vineyard themes. That’s a tricky one, because there are only so many ways you can draw a wine bottle and grapes.
I like the gourmet still-life approach we took because it’s also something you can’t really do on paper, so it’s perfect for your website. And it really brings in the foodie element that most vineyard weddings have too. Another example is the bohemian theme. I’m really proud of the way our team managed to take something like tie dye, which can get really cheese-y, really fast and elevate it so that it could even work for a black-tie boho wedding. Beach is another theme where the umbrella and sand toy imagery that comes to mind first isn’t really what people want for their wedding. I think the subtle waves in our Surf design get people excited for a beach destination without overwhelming the wedding’s brand.

We love wedding websites — such a great online way to showcase your wedding! We’ve partnered with wedding website provider Riley & Grey to let you know some great tips and tricks to make your wedding website shine. Enjoy!
Yep, wedding websites are the new norm. And just FYI, that’s a good thing. Long gone are the days of scrolling through endless email chains and manually counting collected RSVP after RSVP after RS— you get the picture. Ultimately, your wedding website should significantly relieve your planning stress, not add to it. If you pick the right provider, editing your wedsite should actually be, dare we say, fun (think: an easy, electronic wedding DIY).
But you know, a few pointers never hurt, so here are some of our insider tips and shortcuts for creating an amazing wedding website.
