Color does not need to come from your flowers necessarily. Why not try a colored crinoline, shoe or gown.

So you’ve all seen that wedding party that decided to dance down the aisle to Chris Brown’s “Forever.” But, you haven’t seen this.

Thanks to Mrs. Dumpling for sharing. You have to check out the back story on this one!

Dear Fellow Brides,

I know flowers are gorgeous. Trust me, I love them, too (despite the fact I’m not using them at the wedding). But, you don’t need some massive bouquet.  Instead, opt for something more tasteful and classic. You don’t need extra weight to carry on your wedding day. Plus, there is something so chic about a simple bridal bouquet.

P do S: How gorgeous are the pink and white peonies in that bouquet? Le swoon.

Sparklers are always a big hit…

But so is a helicopter exit.

Today’s ring shot comes straight from one of my fave photographers, Emily Porter.  Her fiance proposed not too long ago and purchased this gorgeous solitaire ring from Brilliant Earth. I love everything about this ring.

Congrats to you Emily and Bobby!
