Wedding Vow Memorabilia – Vow Books

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

A lot of time and thought goes into writing one’s wedding vows. With even more time, thought and effort going into living those sacred promises out. Our Wedding Vow Memorabilia serves as a daily reminder of the precious words you spoke/will speak on your wedding day.

Since the design of our award winning Original Vow Book in 2015, things have naturally evolved. We have held onto our roots in the original design but made other options to fit our bride’s different aesthetics and budgets.

You can see and read a little bit about our different Vow Book Options below.

Wedding Vow Memorabilia

The ‘Original Vow Book’

The Original Vow Book design won Best New Product in ‘All Things Wedding’ at the National Stationery Show in 2015 with our sister company Claire Magnolia. The Vow Book was simply born from the idea of ‘Why hold an ugly crumpled sheet of paper at the alter when you could hold a beautiful book, meticulously crafted- just like the Vows you wrote?’ Thinking that a Vow Book, with your precious written words, will be a treasured family heirloom, for decades to come.

This Vow Book design comes with the ribbon-cornered sides, where the couple’s vows can be held securely on each side. With the center ribbon binding, the officiant’s order of service and/or the wedding program can be held, or additional paper can be added here for writing vows.

Our original Vow Book is available to be made in Linen, Silk, Velvet or Leather. See all additional Vow Book options we have to offer.

The ‘Vow Holder’

The Vow Holder design comes with the center ribbon binding only, serving as a slightly more economical option to the Original Vow Book Design. However, just a stunning in looks and crafted in quality, the Vow Holder is an elegant way to house your vows on your special day and for a lifetime.

The ‘Vow Portfolio’

Similar in design to our Original Vow Book, The Vow Portfolio comes with inner ribbon-cornered sides, but with NO center ribbon binding. Perfect for holding his and her vows on either inner side. We have also seen many of our clients use this design as a chic way to display their wedding invitations too!

Wedding Ceremony Booklet + Vow Book DIY

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

We know brides are always looking for ways to save money but simultaneously ways to add a custom touch to their special day. This Wedding Ceremony Booklet and Vow Book DIY is a great way to add a unique element to your wedding day and avoid crumpled papers or an ugly binder at the alter.

We created this Paper Vow Book originally in a smaller version (inspired by our Vow Book) to pass out to brides at events. After a great response, we decided to turn it into an actual product to sell. And today we are going to give you just a few different ideas of how you can DIY it to match your wedding theme.

This first Vow Book DIY is a messy one, but the results are pretty cool. We used leafs that we had lying around with black acrylic paint to stamp a pattern onto the Paper Vow Book. Below you can see the step by step process of how it works. You will want to practice

FYI: You will want to practice the steps a few times before you go to stamping on your final product. It takes a few tries to get the right consistency of paint + even amounts of pressure and rubbing when stamping.

Steps:

  • Paint leaf with a thin layer of paint that covers its surface completely.
  • Quickly (acrylic paint dries fast) flip and press painted leaf onto the surface of paper. Place a sheet of paper between your hand and leaf when pressing + rubbing leaf.
  • Practice printing the leaf a few times before doing it on your final product. (see below)
  • Also, experiment with different leaf, florals, and other objects to see what happens!

The watercolor wedding trend is super popular right now and isn’t going anywhere soon. So here is a simple way to add a little extra to your Paper Vow Book, white invites, plain programs or boring envelopes. AND, it is really easily!  All you need is some watercolors (even the cheap kind for kids would do) and the ability to loosen up and have fun!

Wedding-Ceremony-Booklet-DIY

Steps :

  • take your watercolors and a larger watercolor brush and dip it into the water to get wet.
  • wet your paper with brush strokes, but without paint on it- just water.
  • Dip your wet brush into the watercolor paint you want to use and then brush the paint into the wet spots on your paper.
  • Move the paint around with your brush and experiment with different marks, drips and splashes you can make with your brush and paints.
  • Like before, practice your painting on a separate piece of paper first, before on your final product.
    • tip* : if something is printed in ink that ISN’T waterproof it will smear if you paint over it with paints.

Lastly, the gold leaf DIY. This one is by far the hardest/messiest one to do- but it is still pretty simple with the right materials. And I got so wrapped up in doing this one, there aren’t pictures of the steps, but they are still listed below.

Steps:

  • You need to buy sizing– this is the adhesive that will stick to the foil. You paint it onto your surface and let it dry till its tacky.
  • Once sizing is dried you will apply a sheet of gold foil and GENTLY rub. You will see that the foil will stick wherever the sizing has dried and just rub away where it is not. This step is very tricky so you will need to practice!
    • tip*: you need to find the perfect consistency when applying the sizing. Not too thick, not too thin.
