Weddings have always been personal affairs but recent trends have made it possible for couples to really showcase their style and taste. Bouquets have taken a wondrous, whimsical turn with flowers handmade from vintage lace, beads, leather, and special pieces of clothing from lost loved ones. Wedding decor followed that whimsical path with fun photo booths and props, spectacular floral arrangements, and other unique decor which you can actually use in your home after the festivities have ended. You see couples incorporating initials and monograms into both wedding and reception decor whether the letters are moss covered, rope covered, or shell covered.

I wanted to go "retro" with our first love initials. Instead of using "&", the ampersand symbol which means "and", I wanted to capture those first feelings of love when girls doodled "June + Johnny" or "J + J 4 Ever" in their notebooks. So... I ditched the ampersand and went with a simple plus sign. It lends a bit of whimsy and innocence to your special day!

Finding a large plus sign wasn't an easy task but I love a good challenge. In the end I decided to create both the letters and the plus sign forms by hand shaping styrofoam. The letters measure approximately 24 inches in height and two inches thick. The width will vary depending on the letters you choose. The plus sign measures approximately 12 inches in height, two inches in thickness, and 12 inches wide. Then each styrofoam form is carefully wrapped in jute rope. Because the initials have a styrofoam core they are light weight and perfect for hanging.

If you want to do something other than our retro love initials please send me a convo.
Some other ideas are
I (heart symbol) U
(Initial) + (Inital) 4 Ever
