Planning a rustic wood themed wedding? You’ve come to the right place for ideas + inspiration! So… the other day, Andrew & I were talking about our anniversary coming up very soon. For fun, we looked up what the ‘traditional’ anniversary gift is for five years. I thought it would be, you know, pearls or diamonds. It’s wood. We laughed, because earlier this year I declared it The Year of Wood, without even knowing. We built a brand new wood fence in our backyard, bouquet a new wood dining bench that took forever to find, and we even had a huge tree branch fall into our backyard (which split my sweet little Intex pool in half, but that’s beside the point). So, when we read that five years = wood, we found it very fitting. Since I link everything to wedding planning in my mind, I thought, hmm, a wood themed wedding. That might be interesting for a rustic couple looking to tie in handmade wedding ideas, right? Amazingly, there are some really gorgeous wood themed wedding ideas out there… and now you get to see a smattering of my favorites that I’ve been keeping to myself. I present: the wood themed wedding! Enjoy.

As it starts to get ridiculously chilly outside — especially here in the Midwest — we thought it was a great opportunity to share bridal cover ups for winter weddings. When A & I got married, we chose an early December wedding in Michigan. We lucked out with pretty gorgeous weather for winter, along with a little sprinkle of snow as we exited the church after the ceremony. I chose a faux fur stole and it was the perfect accessory to keep my shoulders warm. However, anytime from October through March is anyone’s best guess at how chilly you will or will not be in your wedding gown. And, like Halloween when your mother made you wear a jacket over your costume, no one wants to cover up their gorgeous dress. In this post, you’ll find a few hand-picked suggestions for bridal cover ups that will warm you up without ruining your style. Plus, we’re giving away a wearable item for the bride to wear while running errands, lounging, and wearing on the honeymoon by ArenLace. Read on to find out more…

Hi, loves! So… Thanksgiving is less than a week away, temps are dropping over the weekend (maybe even a dusting of snow?) and I’m getting more and more antsy to turn on Christmas music on full blast. All day. With this version of Santa Baby on repeat. Ah, the holiday season: the time for Christmas themed wedding ideas, sequined accessories, delicious desserts, hot cocoa, chic cocktails (+ mocktails), and glamorous gifts for loved ones. Speaking of… I was browsing Emma Gordon London recently and couldn’t help but ooh and aah over the chic + sparkly wedding party bags in her collection. These make excellent wedding party bags for the holiday especially, with gold sequin, sparkly cobalt blue, and glittery black bags available. If you’re planning a holiday wedding — or your bridesmaids are wearing little black bridesmaid dresses — consider these party bags for their wedding gift. After all, it’s a gift they can use for the wedding day… and beyond. PLUS, we’re in the gift-giving spirit ourselves, so read on to see how you can win a little something for your stocking! Enjoy!
