WWW - With this ring

Hello ladies! For today's Wade Wedding Wednesday I wanted to share with you all the little Limoge style antique box we found to use instead of the traditional ring pillow. I searched for quite a while to find a box I loved, and stumbled upon Courtland Decor on Esty. Sarah has such beautiful unique antique items in her shop...they rotate in and out quite frequently so you have to check back now and again. Sarah also is a talented artist who paints lovely original works of art. I'd soooo love to have her do a portrait of our kids (you know, when we have them! haha!)

I am going to make a little pillow out of cream velvet and tie a grosgrain ribbon to the middle to create a little ring pillow within the box. I was inspired by a picture I saw on SMP & just had to find the right box for our wedding. I searched high and low online for a few months, both ebay and esty have a large variety available This one is quite large and has a mirror on the it is not your typical Limoge pill box size. I wanted one that latched and one that wasn't teeny tiny. 

I love it! And I think it will be such a special keepsake to have in our home after the wedding!

Check out her site Sarah Kadlic Gallery and also her etsy shop, Courtland Decor! Impressionist art is my favorite!

That's such a great idea instead of a pillow! I don't know if our feisty ring bearer will hold a pillow well ;)

love that your not using a pillow. Never seen it done before... Time to set a new trend.

Such a unique twist but the box is still so elegant. I saw some twitter talk about your wedding cake. We did the fake cake/sheet cake thing. I don't want to butt in, but let me know if you have questions. :)
