    This one is perfect for artists, hipsters, creatives, or the couple that has a lot of hands on help.  Because those cranes would take forever, so unless you’re super talented with loads of time on your hands, you’re going to need hired help on this one.  But I love the tiny paper cranes against the dark fabric background, don’t you?

      Oh wow! The vow backdrop is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a while! I can’t wait to see someone I know do this in person at their wedding.

      I love the vows backdrop. The image of the script behind them is beautiful in and of itself but then when you realize it’s their vows…too cute!

      I saw a backdrop that was an elaborate chalk drawing on the side of a building recently. It was pretty fantastic.

      I’m helping a friend with her wedding and she absolutely loves the backdrop of stacked blocks decorated in geometric shapes and cool colors. What did you guys use for the blocks? Is it cardboard? The geometrical shapes, is it fabric or painted on? I can’t tell. Looks great though. Thanks for any help you can offer.

        Hi Nick- We didn’t make all of the backdrops, just collected the ideas to share. Event designer and stylist Jesi Haack made the geometric one – you might want to ask her.

    •  Washing some of my favorites (that survived Charlie's projectile spitting up for his first 6 months) to pass down to #babyfredrickpartdeux. Anyone know any tricks to get rid of those nasty aged spit up stains? I've washed and tried everything I know and a lot just didn't survive
