White Peony Bridal Bouquet

If I told you peonies weren’t my favorite wedding flower, I (Emma here!) would be lying. Ever since I flipped through my first wedding magazine post-engagement, I’ve been fascinated with this sweet fragrant bloom. I used to be in awe of the pink peonies, though… until I spotted the all white peony bridal bouquet. It is classic, elegant, traditional, and totally brimming with gorgeousness: take a peek!

Proposal Idea: The Marry Me Mug

Oh, you’re going to love this adorable idea. Since we just talked about wedding coffee bar ideas, I knew it was the perfect time to tie in this DIY marry me mug. If you’re going to propose soon, and need the best proposal idea ever, this is one of them! Introducing the marry me mug, a mug that has the words, ‘Marry Me’, written in the inside, at the bottom, so it is revealed after she is done drinking her beverage. I think it would go something like this: guy makes girl delicious cup of coffee. Girl sits on couch waiting for said coffee, cuddling up underneath an afghan. Guy brings coffee — one mug for him, the other is the marry me mug for girl — and they converse for a pretty solid amount of time. Girl drinks her coffee too slow, it’s too hot, and boy gets impatient. He’s sweating, nervous, but he also has to drink the hot coffee because otherwise she would wonder what’s up. With each sip, he gets nervous… when will she see it?

And there it is, ‘Will You Marry Me’ right on the mug. Girl sees it and suddenly realizes what is going on. She looks over at boy, kneeling, ring box in hand, telling her how awesome she is and why he wants her to be his wife and that everyone she loves is in the other room waiting to run out and surprise her. Balloons. Candles. Dessert. An impromptu engagement party. She takes photos with her cell phone and uploads them to Facebook. They give coffee favors to guests who attended, as sort of an inside joke. They start planning their wedding and live happily ever after.

See? So easy! ;)
