Happy Friday! If you liked our round-up of 40 alternative wedding bouquets, you’ll also love these sola and fabric bouquets we spotted at The Sunny Bee! I was browsing Melissa’s shop the other day and couldn’t believe how many beautiful designs she’s recently whipped up for brides-to-be! I adore these sola and fabric flower bouquets because they’re completely custom and lovingly handmade, right down to the colors to coordinate with your wedding. What I love most is the fact they’ll never wilt, so you’ll always have a beautiful reminder of your wedding day! And since there’s no watering required, you’ll be able to keep them looking like new for years to come — even if you have a black thumb like me! ;) I kid. But seriously, my flowers just sprang up out of nowhere and now I’m scrambling to weed, feed, and get started on spring gardening even though it snowed just a few weekends ago. I’m not ready yet! But I digress… get ready for an explosion of gorgeousness with six handpicked bouquets I know you’ll love as much as I do…

Paper Flowers Make Beautiful Backdrops for Weddings

Hi, lovelies! Emma here. There are LOTS of details worth DIYing for your wedding, while other projects are best left to pros. It all depends on your level of confidence, what you want to tackle, and how much time you allow yourself to complete the task. As an example, one project I would definitely leave to an expert is paper flowers — especially when they’re going to be used as a backdrop. This is likely because I’m quite impatient, I critique each cut and fold, and ask my husband 1000x, “Does this look right?” Ha. That’s why I was excited to find these paper flower backdrops from A Paper Event, where Jamie is whipping up some incredible designs. (And if you DO want to try your hand at DIY, you can order a template, where Jamie shows you how it’s done.) Each backdrop is custom-made for your event and is color-coordinated to match your wedding palette (or go with classic white!) Instead of spending hours cutting and folding and trying to replicate what she’s clearly mastered in her studio, let her take care of it — and enjoy a box full of beautiful paper flowers right at your door, ready to be transformed into your ceremony backdrop or photo backdrop, or as wall decor behind your head table, sweetheart table, cake table, or anywhere you see fit. You might even want to reuse them after the big day in your home — I know I would! Take a look at some of her latest creations…

A Georgian Bay Engagement Session: Julianne + Dan

Georgian Bay Engagement Session | Toronto Wedding Photographer - Photography by Calin

Happy Wednesday! We’re excited to bring you Julianne and Dan’s Georgian Bay engagement session. Their recent e-session was captured by Toronto wedding photographer, Photography by Calin. Calin tells us, “This was one of the most fun engagement photo shoots I have done. The couple invited me to do their engagement at their cottage in Georgian Bay, located two hours from Toronto. I always suggest my couples to treat the shoot like a date where I just happen to be around and take photos. That make couples less camera aware and allows me to photograph more photo journalistic photos. After we arrived in Georgian Bay, we had lunch and walked by the docks, spent time downtown and headed to the cottage to enjoy a splendid Georgian Bay sunset. The champagne started flowing, which made for some fun shots.” See the photos in 3…2…1!

If you’ve found the perfect wedding dress but you feel like something is missing, we have the solution for you: add a sash! A bridal sash (or belt) can accentuate your waist, add a personalized touch, and complete the look of your dress. Not all dresses need a sash, but some can benefit from one. I was browsing Laura Stark Designs the other day and was totally blown away by her beautiful collection of bridal sashes. Each one is totally custom-made with the bride in mind.
