L-O-V-E love

Here’s a mini-trend that’s all over the blogosphere at the moment, and I think it’s absolutely charming! Scrabble might be something you like to do with your fiance, it might be something you have in common – it might even be how he proposed, or perhaps it’s just a cute twist on the current monogram or sign trends. Whatever the reason, there are lots of things you can do to incorporate Scrabble into your wedding.

You could…


Include it in your engagement shoot…
Scrabble can be a great accessory for your engagement shoot. Use it to spell out your names and/or words that mean something to you. Or why not write your wedding date and use the photograph as your save the date? Photos by Stephanie Ann via Style Me Pretty (left); OneLove Photography via Wedding Chicks (right)


Use it for seating charts or escort cards…

Include Scrabble as part of the entertainment…
Among others, I’ve seen a wedding where the couple had a Scrabble station, and another where each table was given a different game, also including jenga and tic tac toe. Photo by Two Ring Studios


Leave a set of letters on each table as a talking point.
My friend Lindsey did this, and she said it was one of their best ideas. All their guests had fun making up (mostly rude!) verses using the tiles on their table. (Similarly, you could provide a set of magnetic poetry tiles for guests to play with.) Photo: Lindsey Aitken
