Just wondering, where are you lovebirds going for your honeymoon? Is it absolutely where you have always dreamed of going? Is it a classic or somewhere unique? My parents are currently in Paris having a lovely time for their anniversary. As for me, I am not ashamed to admit my dream honeymoon is to Disney World. Tell us where you are going! Help us all do a little adventuring on this fine Tuesday.

I know it is a day late, but I have to say Happy Mothers Day to all of the mothers out there. Although mothers don’t play a very visible role on our wedding days (like walking us down the aisle), they are right by our side through it all. Those late nights consisting of addressing and stamping invitations, sorting out those seating charts, and countless appointments from your bridal gown to your cake tastings. I am sure you all did yesterday, but make sure to give your mom an extra thank you for everything she does not only for the normal day to day things but especially while planning a wedding!

Imagine with the touch of your finger you could turn a flower into an enchantingly large size. Imagine with the wave of your hands you could bring every delicate detail into clear view, to eye level in fact. Well, with a little work from you and your bridesmaids, this is all quite possible. Your wedding could be a walk through a forest of poppies and roses and tulips, oh my. Or, if that all seems too much, perhaps make just a few for a photo booth background. Not magic, just a little Do It Yourself.

Mint green, lavender or lilac, pale yellow or robin’s egg blue, pastels have been underrated for a long time! Although, they are slowly starting to climb up the popular color ladder in the fashion world. Trends for Spring include delicate colored silk blouses, soft nail colors and pale pink lips, but what about in wedding trends? Pastel colors happen to be one of my favorite color palettes as of late! While everyone is jumping at the thought of a bold blue to-do, or a bright coral soiree, I have had my eye on these lighter colors for months! Whether it is your bridesmaid dresses or decor, I personally don’t think you can go wrong with some softer shades!
Did you do stick to the softer side of things on your wedding day? Leave me a comment and share a picture!

Everything can be used to sweeten up your wedding, quite literally. With the warmer weather on its way, think of your guests’ comfort. Especially if everything will be outside, a fresh iced tea or raspberry lemonade will most likely hit the spot for everyone. Not only will a summery assortment of drinks be refreshing, but they will also be conveniently colorful! The best wedding uses every last thing, necessary or not, to pretty up the place. A few details won’t make the place memorable, but a full and thoughtful composition will. So check out these pictures for some summery refreshment inspiration.

Who doesn’t love pictures? I’ll even go one step further, who doesn’t love Polaroid pictures? I have a “thing” for them. I am not sure what it is about them that I love so much. Maybe it is waiting for the picture to appear before your eyes, or that you don’t get to delete it and retake it, I just love them. I saw this idea for the first time at a wedding last summer and fell in love.
Instead of the traditional guestbook, why not replace it with a Polariod guest book? What is this guestbook replacement you ask? This guestbook still allows your guests to sign their names and write you and your newlywed a congratulatory sentence or two, but now they can add a fun picture as well. It is just as simple and double the amount of fun. Your guests will enjoy taking fun, candid pictures of themselves and you will have another memory to look back at for years! All you will need to create this fun, interactive memory is:
-a Polaroid camera
-a photo album with room to write captions
-a pen or permanent marker
Do you have a creative idea for a guestbook, or are a fan of this one? Let me know!
