You’ve heard of mismatched bridesmaid dresses, but have you heard of the maid of honor wearing a different dress? It’s a fun new trend that’s happening now and is a way to have her stand out from the bridesmaids. Here are a visuals to show you how it looks!
Maid of Honor Wearing a Different Dress
This one is especially fun because the MOH gets to wear a gold sequin dress. I want.
So, loves… what do you think of this trend?
is your maid of honor wearing a different dress?

It’s time for the Photo of the Day… and it’s an amazing one! If you’re planning to do a First Look at your wedding, be sure to add this moment to your photo list.
First Look Before Ceremony
We love seeing the groom as he waits to see his bride for the first time! In this particular photo, you can see the groom’s face in anticipation while the bride is standing behind him, excitedly waiting for him to turn around. Goosebumps.

Hi, loves! I have to say, I think we’ve officially seen it all. Have you heard of / seen this rug aisle runner trend? It’s interesting.
Oh, and I say interesting when I don’t know what to think.
I’ve really tried, you guys. But I just don’t get it. I just don’t like it. There, I said it. It’s not for me. Not to mention, it’s such a tripping hazard.

So, here’s what I think: aisle runners deserve to be grand. Elegant. Full-length. Throw rugs deserve to be thrown around. Messy. Unkempt. Sometimes they’re luxuriously soft, delightful for warming under your feet while sipping on a hot cup of tea. They’re also the first place I look for Geppetto and Shadow when and the first place they go when throw rugs are fresh outta the dryer. Maybe it’s just me, but I just don’t see this being a trend that’ll stick around: I like throw rugs as throw rugs, not aisle runners.
I do, however, admire those who think outside the box like this. Maybe I just haven’t seen THE ONE that’s enough to win me over.
And hey, every wedding trend isn’t for everyone. That’s what makes weddings so fun and diverse and unique.
Enough about me. I’m passing this on to our trusty readers:
What do YOU think?

So, what says you? Do you like a rug aisle runner or do you think throw rugs belong at home? I already told you what I think; now it’s time to hear from you!

Are you planning a Celtic or Irish wedding theme? Want to tie in some traditional Celtic wedding ideas into your ceremony and reception? If so, you’ve come to the right place! It’s many moons until St. Patrick’s Day and all things irish wedding theme related, but that’s precisely why we’re sharing them now: you need time to gather it all up if you’re planning an Irish wedding theme in March (or any time of the year). In this feature, you’ll find charming Irish wedding theme ideas including wedding invitations, wedding programs, a garter, wedding ring, locket, Irish cuff links, and more. Plus, a groom in a kilt, which is pretty much a requirement, no? Enjoy!
Irish Wedding Theme Ideas
A themed wedding favor, like these Celtic knot coasters, is a must-have for this theme. We spotted them at My Little Chickadee Creations.
For an Irish wedding theme, skip a veil and wear a celtic knot headpiece instead! This headband is one of our favorite sparkly finds (from Ivory and Lace Bridal). Add a charming Celtic inspired engagement ring and this theme starts off on the right track (from Moonkist Designs.
Can you imagine an Irish wedding theme complete with tying the knot in a Scottish CASTLE? The Drumtochty Castle is an amazing, one-of-a-kind wedding venue.
For any wedding theme, handmade details make your day more memorable. For groomsmen, give these custom Celtic beer mugs from Brad Goodell Weddings, a Claddagh ring (from Ascheron), a Celtic knot locket from Plasticouture for your bridesmaids, Ireland cuff links from White Truffle Studio, a Celtic knot ring pillow from Laura Stark, and an Irish wedding garter from Natalie Briggs. A boutonniere like the one shown below by Meadowbelle is perfect for this theme. For paper goods, wedding programs from Echo Letter Press feature a Celtic knot, while Irish wedding theme invitations from Mallory Hope Design set the tone and theme of your big day. Claddagh place cards are another charming touch (via Laura’s Paper Creations). See all of these below along with some Real Wedding ideas.

Hi, loves! Wow, Friday already… the week positively flew on by! We’re kicking off this beautiful autumnal morning with a carved rustic diamond ring. If you’re popping the question soon, know someone who is, or want to leave this screen open on your computer to, you know, leave a hint or two, this is the ring for you! This unique rustic diamond ring and is hand carved in wax and cast in recycled Sterling Silver.

Think a corsage is too old-fashioned? Think again! We love the trend of a bridesmaid corsage instead of bouquet, especially when the corsages are tastefully crafted with bold on-theme colors and styles. Plus, it will save you money along the way, since a bridesmaid corsage instead of a full bouquet requires less blooms. A bridesmaid corsage also leaves her hands free to carry something more unique down the aisle, such as a lantern, book, candle, or a clutch purse for her essentials.
