      I think silhouettes are so classy! They are also very versatile; you can make them modern or vintage depending on your wedding.

      I think silhouettes are adorable!

    • Bridally Blonde

      These are awesome! Would be fabulous for a monochrome wedding but could be tied in to just about any theme.

      The cake topper and bride and groom glasses are my favourites, but my goodness those cookies look amazing!

      Fabulous post!
