Friday Musings

1. This cute and comfy Kate Spade flats are perfect for getting ready in on your big day! Easy to throw in your bag and if your shoes are killing you by the end of the night, put them back on to dance the night away!


2. A white maxi. What's more perfect for a bride as we enter the Spring/Summer? Love this BCBG one on Shop Bop. A mixture of lace makes it feminine and flirty.

3. How adorable is this flower girl crown? Check out all the gorgeous pics from this whimsical wedding.

4. Target does it again. Their Oh Joy party line is absolutely amazing. Now all you have to do is come up with a reason... any reason... to throw a party! From cake stands to cups to vases, it has everything! 

5. These ranunculus are such a fun take on the traditional wrist corsage. Love them!

Friday Musings

1. These Spring succulent wreaths are so perfect for a Spring wedding. I love the heart and cross as well. Would be so cute on a church door!  

2. We love this dark and dramatic Chuppah! So used to the blush and pastel colors, it's nice to see it in dark plums and purples. Just gorgeous!

3. Want a fun and different hanger for your wedding dress on wedding day? How about this fully sequined one from Etsy. At just $14 you can get one for yourself and all of your bridesmaids. With your dress on one surrounded by your bridesmaid's dresses, it would make such an adorable picture.

4. Did anyone else see Ashlee Simpon's engagement party attire? It was absolutely perfect for a bride-to-be! Why not take after Ashlee and deck yourself out in feathers, fur, whatever you want... because quite frankly it is YOUR time to shine!

5. These Kate Spade pumps are the perfect shade of blue. Love these paired with a crisp white dress... sooo a wedding dress or rehearsal dress. Leaning towards a rehearsal dress so you can show these beauties off!

1. Instead of a traditional photobooth we love this idea! Would be so fun for your guests and it's just so stinkin cute and unique. An easy little thing to make your wedding standout!

2. Sequins and pink. What more could a girl need? 

3. Umm we need this now. We want to wear daily, so brides please take advantage of your special day and wear this at some point over your wedding weekend.

4. I'm sorry, but is this not the absolute cutest most lady-like veil ever

5. Spring is here, which means peonies are nearly here! Why not wow your guests with a gorgeous peony-filled arrangement as soon as they enter??

2. Outdoor wedding coming up and still want to rock those beautiful heels? Try these Grasswalkers and  your problems are solved. Give them to your bridesmaids too!

4. We love this mix of florals and confetti for an exit. Flowerfetti from Etsy is a fragrant and fun way to send the bride & groom off. We love the lavender confetti, but check out their whole site for all the different options!

5. This advice from the Modern Bride back in the 50's is amazing. Times have changed juuuust a little.
