Inspiration for your road to the altar

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.


I love everything French, so I was so excited to find out about this adorable little Parisian wedding boutique right here in Chicago! My friend Melissa Hayes just went to The Left Bank for a photoshoot and she was kind enough to pass along all the pictures you see in this post. Aside from the gorgeous trinkets, wouldn’t this be great inspiration for a wedding? All the little suitcases stacked together, the vintage frames and dress forms – love it!


Make A Statement

March 9, 2010

It looks like this week is inadvertently turning out to be collections of inspiration for all sorts of different wedding aspects (I think I like it). A lot of brides are turning to chunky necklaces to add an interesting element to their white dresses, and I adore each and every one of these from Elva Fields. And I don’t think I have to explain how much I wish I had found that green necklace before my own wedding!

How about you? Are you going with a statement necklace for your day or opting for the classic route?
