Inspiration for your road to the altar

I’ve written about these adorable clutches and coin purses from nonsuch before, but since it was over a year ago I thought it might be worth sharing again! The fabrics and details make them almost too cute to be used for coins – maybe for traveling with jewelry? I think it would be a sweet idea to give these as bridesmaids gifts, filled with a favorite lip gloss or maybe a cute pair of earrings!

My apologies for the lack of posting yesterday – these last few weeks seem determined to kick my butt! So while I regroup and get a little rest, take a look at this adorable DIY project from ECAB {via Darling Dexter}. This bead necklace would make such a sweet gift for your bridesmaids and would certainly fit within any budget! And even if you are challenged in the craft making department, as long as you can string beads and braid you’ve got this one in the bag.


If any of you have started down the path of searching for a Mother of the Bride dress, you know how hard it can be to find something appropriate. To be honest, I think we spent more time looking for my Mom’s dress for my own wedding than we did for mine! So with that said, I am so happy to introduce you to one of our newest sponsors –

Designer Apparel
is a shopping website that aggregates merchandise from other online stores (Neiman Marcus, Saks, Bloomingdales, ShopBop, and Net-a-Porter, etc) and displays current sales and deals, and links you right to the original site to purchase whatever catches your eye. And guess what? So many people were searching their site for Mother of the Bride dresses, that they created a search thread dedicated entirely to Mother of the Bride dresses! The page is updated in real time, and you can search by price, designer and popularity. I found these four adorable options in just a few minutes…its so easy to use!
