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…

Spell out guests’ names at their table settings…

Include Scrabble as part of the entertainment…

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

      Thank you Kristi! I admit I couldn’t play with you either – despite being an editor by trade, I am completely rubbish at Scrabble! I still love it though.😉
      So glad you commented, because now I have discovered your blog and I absolutely love it. You’ve gone straight onto my Google Reader!

      Hi Cecile! Scrabble tiles are popular with scrapbookers, so you may be able to find them at a local craft store (or, of course, you could buy a set from a toy store, depending on how much you need). Alternatively, eBay is your best bet, especially for specific letters or lots of 100 or more. xx
