Inspiration for your road to the altar

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! I thought the perfect way to celebrate today was with Liza & Greg’s lovely outdoor wedding, which took place in Canada this past summer. Liza and Greg love the outdoors, so a family affair on a local farm was the perfect backdrop for their nuptials. Their wedding was filled with DIY projects and personalized right down to the dinner for their guests, which was grilled by the groomsmen! The pair handed out fishing flies that had been hand tied by Greg, the centerpieces were made with flowers from Liza’s garden, and be sure not to miss the adorable lace covered rocks that were given as paperweights. Liza’s dress was custom made, and I think you’ll agree that it looks stunning in the amazing light streaming into the photos below.

I remember looking for a cute robe to wear while I was getting ready the morning of the wedding (don’t forget that there will probably be some photographers in there with you!) so when the owner of Plum Pretty Sugar contacted me a few weeks ago, had to share her creations with you. Her robes, pajama shorts, pajama pants and even the jewelry pouches pictured above are all kind of whimsical without trying too hard. She even calls her store a “loungerie” which is so cute. Are you going to wear something cute while you’re getting ready for your wedding? Or just go with your normal casual wear?


Paper Butterflies

June 8, 2010

How pretty are these paper butterflies? They are cut from vintage prints and at peacocky’s Etsy shop you can get 50 of them for only $6. I am thinking you could thread them with twine and use them to tie up napkins at each place setting…or maybe pin them to a white foam board for a lovely backdrop? Tell me how you would use them!
