Winter weddings hold a special place in my heart because we tied the knot in December. It was a beautiful day and oddly, not as cold as one would think. It snowed just a little bit when we left the church — enough to capture a beautiful flurry on camera and accentuate the beauty of winter. When you’re looking for decorations for winter weddings, it can be tough to know where to start. If you don’t want something holiday-ish (like a red and green wedding) you might not want an icy blue one either. But what are you supposed to do? How do you pull it all together, and where do you even start with decorations? Well, I’m glad you asked because we just found the easiest, most beautiful decorations for winter weddings available and you can get them all in one complete package. We spotted these at Dream Wedding Box where winter weddings are a favorite of theirs. They love decorations so much they’ve created a “complete wedding package” complete with wedding signs and chalkboard signs, garland, table numbers, table number holders, banners, drink signs, gold sequin table runners, and bride and groom chair signs. They’ve created winter wedding decorations in a complete package so the guesswork is done: just purchase it and assemble at your wedding. From these decorations, you can gather inspiration for your color palette and then incorporate everything else where you see fit — your save the date, invitations, cake topper, favors, and more. In this decor package, you’ll receive eight types of decorations for winter weddings with a few of each.

Hi, there. Happy Thursday! I like to visit fashion blogs and Pinterest boards, getting the scoop for the latest + greatest fashion trends. But it drives me nuts when I see a gorgeous outfit pieced together with one specific item I want and it doesn’t mention where to get it. And then I Google it and I can’t find the item, or I do but it is SOLD OUT. Bummer. I know it happens: I’ve seen some Real Weddings with amazing boho bridesmaids dresses but sometimes you can’t find the original designer or bridesmaids picked them out themselves it’s nearly impossible to contact them to find out where they were from. Articles can suggest similar pieces all they want, but are they ever really close enough? Never! At least I don’t think so.

You can imagine my excitement, then, when I found the perfect boho bridesmaids dresses that I knew you would love, along with a link to buy them + tons of color options + an affordable price. If you are looking for free-spirited, flowy boho bridesmaids dresses and you want to keep bridesmaids happy, you’ve come to the right place. These bohemian inspired bridesmaids dresses are reasonably priced (under $100!), are available in a few beautiful shades, and you can get this taken care of by this weekend. Ready to cross bridesmaids dresses off of your long to-do list? Let’s go!

First things first: these boho bridesmaids dresses are from Vintage Summer on Etsy. With awesome reviews and beautiful photos, I felt comfortable referring them to you.

Drink Koozies Weddings, Bachelorette Parties & Bridal Showers | By Sip Hip Hooray | http://emmalinebride.com/favors/drink-koozies-weddings/

by sip hip hooray

When you think of drink koozies (aka can coolers), the first adjective that comes to mind probably isn’t the word beautiful by any stretch of the imagination. But the latest koozies on the market for use as bridal shower favors or wedding favors are exactly that! The brilliant typography, bold pops of color, charming one-liners and personalized details on these can coolers from Sip Hip Hooray have forever changed my mind. Guests will actually use these koozies again — proudly! — on patios, at the beach, on the front porch, poolside, and of course, at your wedding reception. And while many people associate drink koozies for use with beer or cider, you’ll be happy to know they’re functional on any can or bottle (including lemonade, iced tea, and your favorite soda pop). Unlike other wedding favors, these drink koozies also serve an important function: to keep drinks cold.

Take a look at these surprisingly beautiful can coolers and be sure to grab a few extra when you order. We don’t think there will be any leftovers! Cheers!

21 Wedding Flats for the Bride | http://emmalinebride.com/bride/wedding-flats-bride/

Hi, lovelies! As a tall woman — 5’11” to be exact — I’m no stranger to low-heel shoes and flats. I don’t mind towering over people, and feel totally comfortable wearing a 2″ or even 3″ stacked heel any day of the week. But I know that sometimes flats are a no-brainer. For instance, when I’m chasing after my toddler with baby in tow. Or grabbing groceries late at night and trying to get home before my tv show starts. Or shopping at the mall without hearing a constant click-click-clicking sound. For my wedding, I wanted to wear heels because I love them, but I definitely had a back-up pair of bridal flats to wear mid-reception. Heels are not mandatory. And if the idea of wearing heels makes you nervous, or you need a solid day just to figure out how to walk in them, I say wedding flats are your best bet. To help you pick, we’ve rounded up twenty-one of the prettiest wedding flats for the bride. They all look insanely comfortable and many of them are affordable, too. Take a minute to look around and let me know which bridal flats suit your style best! I’m so enamored with #8…

Plaid Bridesmaid Clutch for Fall Weddings

plaid clutch purse - bridesmaid clutch for fall weddings | by Juneberry Stitches

by juneberry stitches

Hey, loves! Happy weekend! Some of my favorite handmade finds are the result of simply popping in to my favorite Etsy shops to see what’s new. One of my recent fave finds was discovered when I popped in to Juneberry Stitches where I found the loveliest plaid doily clutch purse I had ever seen. Now to be fair it is probably the first plaid clutch purse with a doily that I have ever seen, but that’s what makes it so unique.
