Spotted: an easy + modern DIY floating peony centerpiece for your wedding! You may use peonies (as shown) or your favorite flower for this DIY. This works for bridal showers, engagement parties, wedding receptions, and parties at home! This was spotted at Martha Stewart and requires small bowls, flowers, a white cheese board, and votive candles. Lovely!

Hi, lovelies! I (Emma here!) am always finding a new cake topper to love and today’s feature is no exception. This adorable little love birds cake topper will look so cute on your wedding cake and as a decor piece after the wedding day. The love birds are all dressed up: he’s in his bow tie and buttons while she’s in her veil with a rhinestone flower. The bride bird wears off white with a white tummy while the groom is donned in all black. The birds are four inches tall and are needle felted out of wool.

Guillermo and Patty’s Idaho Falls engagement took place in a beautiful backwoods setting. This cool couple had no problem looking natural in this lovely outdoor setting resting on cut timber, strolling down memory lane with umbrella in hand, and kicking their feet up on an old rusty automobile. With deep felt gazes, close kisses, and hands clasped Guillermo and Patty start their journey from best friends to life long companions. We wish the both of you all the best on your long and happy future together! Creatively capturing this wonderful couple’s Idaho Falls engagement was Jaclyn from Jaclyn Davis Photography.

Happy Monday! We always love kicking off a fresh new week of wedding loveliness with a giveaway. Isn’t a giveaway a great way to chase away the Monday blahs? This week, EB readers have an opportunity to win a bridal triangle bag in white – a $65 value – from Jenny Andrews leather based in Vancouver, Canada. This bag is not only beautifully handcrafted, but it’s extremely functional, too. It stands up on its own (which, ladies, let’s agree it’s so much easier to do makeup with a stand-up bag!) and holds plenty of goods like your wedding day jewelry, cell phone, tissues, and lipstick. The bridal triangle bag is made of white recycled leather with a white lace detail around the top. The inside has a light blue raw silk lining for an added “something blue” bonus. As all leather products go, this bag will get even better with age which means your daughter may someday carry the very same bag down he aisle at her wedding. Bag measures 3.5 x 8.5 x 3 inches.

We’ve talked about Sunshine & Carousels in the past, but holy wow – have you seen their shop lately? There are so many brand new items just in time for fall! It seems like summer flew by in an instant and we are once again reunited with deep reds, burnt oranges, browns, and mustard yellows. I say – bring it on. As much as I adore the summer months, I can’t get enough of autumn, my favorite season of the year. And, these fall boutonnieres make it easy to get excited about the season: cordoroy pants, hot apple cider, yummy cinnamon donuts, Halloween… If you’re planning an upcoming wedding, consider these fall boutonnieres for your groomsmen. They’re chock-full of charm in a wide array of colors with suede leaves, tiny silk flowers, a ruffle of chiffon and a velvet wrapping in color of your choice. But don’t just take our word for it – see for yourself!

So, you’re in love with the idea of homemade pie at your wedding but you still want to have your cake (and eat it, too). Not a problem! Instead of ditching the tiers all together, why not serve up wedding pies to go? Wedding pie favors are a great way to mix in the homespun goodness of freshly baked mini apple and cherry pies (or any flavor you crave) as well as add to that fall-themed decor you’ve been dreaming about. Take a cue from some of these images below to whip up a little inspiration:

Happy Friday, lovelies! Do you have any exciting weekend plans lined up? This might have been one of the fastest weeks ever and I truly can’t believe it’s already Friday again. Let’s get started, shall we? We are kicking off today’s posts with this unique carnation flower wall. It’s easy to fall in love with these colorful, affordable, no-longer-known-as-just-a-filler carnations especially when they are displayed in such a beautiful hanging form. En masse, carnations look so pretty and provide a pop of unexpected color to your wedding decor. String them outside from a tree branch, as shown, or use as a backdrop for a photo booth or cake table. Spotted via Pinterest from Style Me Pretty; photography by Elyse Hall.
