Hi, loves! Happy New Years’ Eve! We’ve talked about black and gold wedding ideas in the past, one of my favorite wedding + New Years’ color palettes. Today, we’re sharing yet another favorite palette combo: black and silver wedding ideas! Black and silver wedding finds are lovely because they’re chic, sophisticated, and offer complementing accents that are SO incredibly easy to find. Black and silver bridesmaid dresses? Simple. A gorgeous pair of black heels? Done. A bouquet made of silver and black brooches? Easy. So, grab a cup of coffee, a cuppa tea, or a glass of champagne (you know, cause it’s New Years’ Eve, BTW) and join us as we ring in the new year with black and silver wedding finds PLUS an awesome, get-your-hands-on-it-now giveaway you can’t afford to miss. (P.S. Check out the black bow-topped heels in #29. They’re insanely gorgeous.) Let’s get started, shall we?

This wedding drop veil is cut to your choice of length and width. You can wear the veil with it draped in front of you as a blusher or in the back.

The wedding drop veil comes with a veil pin (corsage pin) or can be sewn with a comb inside if you have a particular placement in mind.

Hi, loves! Earlier this week, we talked about felt wedding ideas you’ll actually love, a post which received positive, excited responses. (We’re glad you liked it!) And, one of the artisans we featured – Ordinary Mommy – is back in the spotlight today! We’re sharing some of her whimsical hair pins for your flower girl. One of the reasons why we love this shop (besides the fact that her work is awesome) is because of Faith’s sweet story of how her products are made. In her shop, Faith talks about how each piece is made with love and surrounded by family, adding: “I don’t have my own studio space, so I’m rather certain that each piece a person takes home with them tells stories of small girls painting and dancing, a wee gentleman conspiring to build his latest Lego creation, and the moments of chaos surrounding its making.“. Isn’t that sweet? Read on to see a few of our favorite flower girl hair pins and enter for a chance to win a set! Enjoy!
Whimsical Flower Girl Hair Pins
What would your flower girl love to wear in her hair? For starters, something sparkly. I mean, I’m twentysomething and sparkly still wins over simple, every time. Also, since there are only five days until Christmas, I found this set to be especially lovely this time of year.

Hi, loves! Emma here. If you would have asked me a few years ago about felt wedding ideas for your big day, I would have imagined an explosion of overly artsy / craftsy decor. However, I’ve learned that felt — a commonplace craft supply product — can be cute, quirky and surprisingly lovely, too. In this post, you’ll find over twenty-five visually-inspiring felt wedding ideas for your big day. We’ve hand-selected our favorite felt wedding bouquets, boutonnieres, ring pillows, pennants, banners, and more! If you plan to incorporate these felt wedding accessories, here’s my best advice: don’t feel the need to overly ‘felt’-ify your wedding. Just pick a few key accessories you love in colors that coordinate with your overall decor. Ready to get started? Read on to begin… and, you bet your bottom dollar there’s a giveaway at the end of this post. One of these lovely felt wedding ideas is up for grabs… will you be the lucky winner?

Handmade felt wedding flowers have to be number one on my list. Check these out… they’re incredible!
