wedding wednesdays: pink inspirations

Spring is here and in DC that means the Cherry Blossoms are blooming, which brings to mind my favorite thing…the color pink. We are now into the season where bright colors come back into play for weddings and other such events. So, in honor of the occasion, I pulled a few of my favorite pops of pink together into a delightful spring inspiration board. Enjoy. All the little bits: Fantastic pink invites from Alee and Press via 100 Layer Cake; tulle skirt by Ouma via Mindy Weiss; pink/bright tablescape by Amy Osaba via Southern Weddings. S’more pops via Southern Wedding; Lemon cake with pink bunting from Berry Lovely; Candle/Bouquet/Table Cards via One Wed.

wedding wednesday: flower power

Spring is pretty much here and with it comes my allergies, I mean, beautiful flowers emerging. So, as I was browsing one of my many pinboards today, I stumble across some of my favorite bouquets from weddings featured on some of my favorite wedding blogs. I couldn’t help but share. Nothing like flowers to make you sneeze, I mean…smile. 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

etsy find: brooke arin

  I love great etsy finds. I especially love the effort it takes me to not buy everything that I discover (I would be a poor broke girl if I did that). Currently, it is taking all of my willpower to not order the California Pendant necklace from Brooke Arin. Translation: “I am trying to decide when I can buy the awesome California Pendant, ooooo, look, rings.” Yes, I may have a tiny problem, but in keeping with the blog theme…they could make great bridesmaid gifts. Do you have any great Etsy finds that you are just dying to share? Just leave a comment below.

wedding wednesday(ish): favors, pt. 3

  Featuring different and unique favor ideas is one of my very favorite things to share. Whenever a Wedding Wednesday post is late, you can be almost 100% sure that it’s because I’ve had the following going through my head “You can not do another post on favors, no matter how much you love them.” By Thursday morning, I generally cave. Today’s favors are care of Martha Stewart Weddings and they are spectacular. Plus, it’s pretty much my favorite things in favor form. Cheese and Crackers, and then Honey. Actually, I don’t think it could get much better unless you paired them together, of course.

must have monday: w/ placecards

Placecards — the underrated, often overlooked, essential part of any major event. Yes, their only job is to tell people where to sit. But there are so many creative options for them, and it’s just one more place to really put a personality stamp on an event. From lemons, to twitter handles, to library card cases…the options are endless. 1 | 2 | 3 [photos care of funkytime, grey likes weddings, and style me pretty]
