Inspiration for your road to the altar


I have one thing to say about the wedding of this adorable couple – mini donuts! I can’t think of a better way to end a reception than passing out bite size pastries to all of your guests (really, who doesn’t love a donut?)  Lisa and Seth were married in Minneapolis on a gorgeous Fall day, in a event that is full of understated simplicity.  Lisa’s dress is so perfectly classic and I love the single blooms in small glass vessels set up throughout the reception – a perfect way to achieve a romantic feeling without spending a chunk of your budget on blooms.

I adore these faux bois invitations from Magpie Paperworks!  They even include a custom sash that you can choose from three options of natural fibers.  And don’t miss the wording – who wouldn’t want the phrase “is madly in love with” included on their invites?  Perfect!


Wedding Totes

March 13, 2013

Whether you are looking for a cute (and personal) way to package your bridesmaids gifts or a unique way to put some goodies into the rooms of your out of town guests, I love a good tote at a wedding!  There are a lot of adorable options that can be found at reasonable prices, or you can go the DIY route and make some yourself.  I opted to make my own for our wedding using a stencil which you can see in this post.  But to be honest, I think the items pictured above are much cuter than what I made!

If you opt for the DIY route, check out the link I referenced above or this great project from Ashley Ann Photography.  She used a doily to make a custom print, which might be a little overwhelming depending on the number of totes you’re making but I think it’s so adorable.  I found my plain bags online, similar to these promotional tote bags. What do you think? Worth the purchase of a custom option or an easy DIY project?
