If you're dreaming of a unique wedding and looking for a place to start, you definitely shouldn't miss this event! We will be there mingling with the guests and offering first hand information about our invitations (and maybe even a take-home souvenir??!). Check out the list of fellow exhibitors here!

Tickets are available here or you can get them at the door.

See you there!

Fabulous Wedding Gift Guides


Feeling wedding gift blues? Want to give something other than kitchen platters or silverware? We feel your pain. Although wedding registry's are super helpful and a guaranteed success, there's something special about wrapping up the perfect gift for the happy couple. Refinery 29 recently came out with two brilliant gift guides that will have you feeling gift bliss. Here are a few of our favorite suggestions!

Real wedding: Erin and Jeremy

Murphy_Tinker_AdiNevoPhotographs_100605_ErinJeremy_TBL_0065_0_low We are thrilled to report that the wedding of Eunice's best friend, Erin and her new hubby, Jeremy, is featured on Style Me Pretty today!

It was a truly fabulous and fun affair, designed by Alison Events, with lots of ingenious details, including a vintage card catalog that acted as the seating guide. Each guest's card was cross-referenced with other guests according to interests, life history, etc....



...and possibly the most amazing and hilarious first dance -  done to Hey Soul Sister by Train and including the Beyoncé's signature move from All the Single Ladies (need we say more?)...


...a photo booth by Magnolia Photo Booth - always a huge hit at any party...


We collaborated with Erin and Jeremy to come up with a charming array of stationery inspired by vintage ephemera and McSweeny's. The invitation was supposed to look like a page torn from a book...


The replies were Mad Libs fashioned to look like an old school Western Union telegram...


And the programs, designed to look like a vintage book...

Murphy_Tinker_AdiNevoPhotographs_100614_ErinJeremy_TBL_0005_0_lowThis was one of our favorite projects so far this year!  We really loved their creativity and sense of fun.

Registry: Heath Ceramics

picture-1.png One of the many wonderful things about being in the Bay Area is the proximity to Heath Ceramics. Their  gorgeous line of pottery, tile and ceramics has been around since the mid-40's and everything is handmade in their Sausalito studio. We love their simple designs, stunning color and dependable quality. If you're not lucky enough to visit their Sausalito Factory store, or Los Angeles boutique, everything is available online. What an amazing place to register at for your upcoming wedding!




And how cute is their kids set?! Perfect for any upcoming baby showers or little ones on the way!


Vintage China

Cake StandCake Stand Daily Candy London featured Katy Potts Tea for Two Vintage English China today, and we are smitten!  All the china shown was created between the 1920's and 1950's and comes charmingly wrapped in a vintage-inspired hatbox.

How adorable are these butter dishes and toast racks?   Not that we need anything else to covet!

The line is available for purchase at Liberty of London, the V&A Museum Shop, Orange Pekoe or by private sales (the next one is in November in central London).  Visit the website here.

Jessica Rust Designs

ru02b_th.jpg We are always on the hunt for unique and meaningful wedding gifts. Don't get us wrong, that Kitchen-Aid mixer is sure to please, but being able to truly personalize a gift, is something that the couple will always remember.  We love the idea behind Jessica Rust's personalized dinnerware. She offers mugs, plates, platters and bowls in a variety of different designs. Each piece has the ability to be personalized with a couples initials and wedding date. So sweet! For more information, visit her website here.





Wedding Registry - Beyond Towels from Macy's

Vintage SilverwareUtopia pitcher For those of you who are looking for a way to register for groovy, electic items you'd never find at Macy's, we just came across MyRegistry.com - this website has a handy little tool that you drop into your bookmarks toolbar that allows you to add anything from any online store to your wedding registry.

Bird Terrine

If, say, you'd rather fabulous vintage silverware, Scottish blankets, and colorful glasses from ReFound Objects, than the standard fare, this website is genius!  Pottery from Jonathan Adler and dishes from Anthropologie, anyone?  Unique table top pieces (like these bird terrines) from Mothology or glamorous finds from Jayson Home & Garden? Also, you have the option of adding cash as a gift by setting up a cash gift fund (no longer will you have to figure out a non-tacky way to ask for money for your dream honeymoon or towards the down payment you're working on for that house!)

Pressed Glass

Vintage Scottish Blankets

If you like to balance out your karma with some charitable works (we know how difficult it is not to loose control with that little scanner thingy they give you over at Williams-Sonoma - it makes such a satisfying noise!), we also recently came across Global Giving via A Practical Wedding which allows you to create an easy-to-use registry for donations to good causes all around the world.
