Would you love to receive a Plumed pillow as a gift? I know I would.

It should be no secret that I love balloons (see: Engagement Photos).

So, of course I love the look of this ceremony decor.  What I love even more is the fact that the balloons are all at different heights.  Gives the space (well, outdoor space) character and depth.

There were many things about this wedding shot by The Youngrens that I loved, but something that really caught my eye was that the bridesmaids carried balloons instead of bouquets.

Just a quirky element that made a cute little impact.  I’m not sure what they did with the balloons during the ceremony, but in this particular shot, you can see them behind the bride and groom – a fun little touch!

So, you’re having a romantic, vintage wedding, and you’re looking for a unique way to dress up your reception tables. Insert vintage books.

Not only is this an eco-friendly decoration option (no new materials are needed), but the books add a touch of whimsy and character. They make a great base for milk jars filled with wildflowers, or they are great by themselves. Plus, you can even use them in photos.

Jessica Claire used this idea in her last photography workshop, stacking Anthropologie coffee mugs on top. She even used old books for her very own wedding invitations (see the post here).

You can find old books at garage sales, book swaps, used book stores, eBay and the list goes on.  They are pretty inexpensive, but can make a big impact.
