Stepping Stones for Bridesmaids

Question: what should you do when your ceremony takes place outdoors (on grass) and bridesmaids are wearing heels? You could issue a wedges / flats only rule (but that’s no fun) OR you can add stepping stones for bridesmaids! We vote for the latter. Stepping stones give bridesmaids a designated place to stand and keeps their heels from sinking into the grass. Regular stepping stones will work just fine, but then we spotted heart-shaped stepping stones and, well, see for yourself…

Stepping stones for bridesmaids make it easy to wear heels and stand at the ceremony (without digging into the grass).  These heart shaped stepping stones are even more adorable! Get the DIY to make your own.

Aren’t they adorable? The bride and groom, Jessica and Steven, made these stepping stones themselves! And, that’s not all: they’re also showing other couples how it’s done! Here’s how the stepping stones looked pre-ceremony…

      Bummer! I just saw that, too. Maybe their domain is just down… hopefully they renew it and the tutorial returns. I haven’t been able to find a replacement tutorial yet… will keep you posted!
