Your First Holiday as Newlyweds

For those of you that got married this year, how about a sweet ornament for your tree to celebrate your first Christmas as husband + wife? I love these ornaments from Paloma’s Nest. You can have your wedding date and location engraved with your names or an ornament rimmed in 18k gold or silver leaf gilding with your names/date/quote printed on the front.

Some other faves include these cute silhouette ornaments or a pretty rustic heart with your initials burned into the front + the year on the back.

Did you order your holiday cards yet? A few weeks ago, I mentioned the great cards from Minted that incorporate your photos, but maybe you’d like something a little different. I love these sweet illustraions from Teardrop Weddings. Each design is customizable in the ink colors, font styles, wording + they customize the character illustrations to look like you and your fiance/husband/boyfriend/spouse. So fun + totally unique! Holly (the designer behind these lovelies) is offering GWS readers a special offer of 50% off!!! You will need to enter the promo code HOLCAR10 on the order form. Click here for more details. This offer is valid until Dec. 16th. Happy Holidays!
