An aquarium, a mandap, and a Star Wars save-the-date

An aquarium wedding with a shark and awesome glasses? I am in for this. I'm also totally down for the other reader submissions to our Flickr Pool, Pinterest, and the Tribe. Get ready for some red crinoline, a singing father/daughter dance, and some awesome handmade save-the-dates and invitations. It's Monday, and it's awesome!

Our vintage handkercheif wedding invitations
Check out Erin and Aaron's handmade hanky invites! They have a very cool vintage feel. We'll be getting a tutorial on these soon, we promise.

Save The Date
On a different, but equally awesome note, here is Kevin and Sara's Star Wars save-the-date. Sara said they chose this because 'the bearded giant loves Star Wars more than it has ever been loved before.' HA!

I love these camera-themed invites! Check out the details including repurposed film strip wrap-around. Photo by Wild About You Photography

  1. MUST. HAVE. HANKY. DIY. I've been thinking about embroidering pre-made hankies for wedding party gifts, but how awesome would this be for all the guests???

  2. yes HOURS!!!!!!!!! it started at 5…no lie….they sang and played almost nonstop for like 3 hours….with maybe one break. LOL!!!! I had that "moment" at the reception where it felt like an old west film when they went up to the bar and were getting drinks. It was AWESOME. I need to find out the name of the group!!
