Wedding Ideas

Getting a jump start on this post for the month of May since we are super busy with weddings starting up the season!

Here are a few fun ideas we have come across lately:

Frame the Date: great idea for wedding gifts for others and possibly yourself!

Retail me not:
An excellent site for all of the favor, outfits for bridal shower, bachelorette party, engagement party and bridal party gift shopping!

A Bride's Ride: A Blog dedicated all to vintage car grand exits and Just Married kits for decorating!  Only in Arizona, California and Florida so far, but maybe I can get my readers to change that!


Custom Handpainted Signs at the Back Porch Shoppe: I will be using this site for sign orders for a large farm and barn location where we are planning our vintage Halloween wedding in October

 
Have you ever wanted to make your own rhinestones out of candy?  No?  Well here's a fun idea for anyone wanting to incorporate these within their reception design.  DIY Candy Rhinestones


I've noticed the use of vintage brooches on cake and floral bouquets lately.  I LOVE this idea and feel that it would fit in with almost any style including contemporary, glam, vintage, victorian, you name it!

Feel like reading a wedding related fiction book?  Savor the Moment by Nora Roberts is coming out in May (it's 3rd in line of the Bride's Quartet series)!

(from  Amazon.com) Happily-ever-afters continue to bloom in book three of Roberts's sugary Bride Quartet (after Bed of Roses) as the spotlight shines on pastry chef extraordinaire Laurel McBane. Vows, the Greenwich, Conn., wedding business run by the four BFFs, is also a hotbed for romance, as two of the friends have already found true love and dream of their upcoming nuptials. Laurel, meanwhile, sets her sights on Del, the older brother of Vows partner Parker, a handsome lawyer she's secretly loved since they were teens. Passion erupts, but will they be able to make it last? Laurel's tart fairy tale romance offers few surprises, but it's impossible to deny Roberts's flair for sketching likable couples.
