Custom Built Wedding Wall

Once in awhile I hop onto craigslist to check out what unique wedding items I can find.  Today, I found this gem:

How AWESOME is this????

So I wonder how hard it can really be to build and start playing with door ideas.  I hopped onto vintagedoors.com and the options are almost overwhelming.  A few of my favorites:



Organza Wedding Dress

This beautiful dress is from wonderxue on etsy.com.


Francesca Miranda's Veranique in BLACK & white

I adore this dress and it is available in white but the black with the white flowers really, really stood out to me.  For the right bride, this dress is absolutely, phenomenally, uniquely perfect!

Good Bridesmaid gifts make pretty pictures!

Pretty bridesmaid gifts (varied kimonos) that make pretty pictures!  The selfish yet still an AWESOME gift.  Available on etsy.


{Green} Wedding Favors

I am an animal-loving, tree hugging, wedding planner.  Weddings create a lot of "waste" and should I ever be lucky enough to have my own wedding, I will keep the environment in mind and use it as a an opportunity to remind/educate my friends & family. 
When it comes to wedding favors, I typically prefer the donation route telling guests about the charity that received.  Torch Illumination on etsy has created a soy candle where 10% of proceeds go towards environmental conservation and they look good doing it!

I hated bows until.....

Bows.  I pretty much hate them for any female over the age of 5.  That was until I found this cruising through the amazing Martha Stewart's Wedding website.  I LOVE. THIS. IDEA.  Nuff said.



So many things are about the bride.  It's ALL about the bride!  Here we have a little something cool for grooms too.  Check out this creative, feel-good manvite for your man's bachelor party by PaperandPomp on etsy:


Something BLUE!!!

I can't decide if I actually would do this or not but these gorgeous earrings could be my "something blue" on my wedding day.  They could also be bridesmaid gifts from you, the bride. 

I think they're beautiful and these colors are very much my style.  Please check out all the beautiful jewelry from iloniti on etsy.com:



This is a picture from a styled shoot I did last Spring at Carnton Plantation.  I absolutely LOVEd the idea of spelling out the word love with these beautiful orange shoes as the V.  I hand painted the other letters I bought from Michael's and created this little area with a mirror I bought at a yard sale, some antique books, and a fashion designer friend's dress form.  There are so many ways to decorate a wedding when you start to think outside of the box.
