Fishing Cake Topper for Wedding / Groom’s Cake

A while back, we featured this gone fishing cake topper and it was a huge hit. And we loved it just as much as you did. But then the cake toppers were no longer available and bride-to-be, Ashleigh, came to us looking for one, and we think she (and you) will love what we’ve found! This topper has it all, from the adorable bride’s dress to the fishing rod to the puppy! And just wait until you see how this groom holds his bride. So sweet. Check it out below, by Anna Crafts:

7 Cute Wedding Handkerchiefs You Can’t Resist

Hi, loves! Emma here. And, I’ll be honest: normally, a handkerchief isn’t my favorite thing in the world. I’m more of a tissue kind of girl. Call me new-fashioned but I like to blow my nose and then, you know, THROW IT AWAY. But I do love when wedding handkerchiefs are used in creative ways at weddings: for tears of joy favors, wrapped around your bouquet as something blue, or as gifts for the wedding party. I even love handkerchiefs on shoes. So, I get it: there are going to be happy tears a-flowin’ on your big day and you might as well have hankies at the ready. That makes total sense.

So, when I saw this ‘Hurry Up and Be My Husband Already‘ handkerchief (shown below, #1) over at The Polka Dotted Bee, I just had to look further into her hankie collection. And I couldn’t resist all the lovely finds there were! So today we’re sharing seven of them and I have to admit — I’m slowly becoming more of a hankie girl because these are just too cute to resist. You can even have custom hankies made FROM YOUR HANDWRITING, which is pretty amazing.

Bottom line? Even if you’re not on board with the whole hankie thing, you’ll totally love these personalized wedding handkerchiefs. Promise. See them for yourself, below!

Modern Air Plant Wedding Decor

I love when wedding decor can be re-used as home decor. Loooove it. So when I (Emma here!) spotted these modern hanging air plant holders over at Handmade Sam Made, I couldn’t resist sharing their geometric awesomeness with you. But first, what is an air plant, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you!

What is an Air Plant?

These is an air plant? Here’s what it looks like:

An air plant — aka Tillandsia, if you want to get technical — is a sometimes rootless tropical plant with grasslike leaves, according to Google. Water and airborne nutrients are absorbed through its leaves.

Air Plant Wedding Decor

An air plant makes an exceptionally lovely flower alternative for wedding decor, especially for a modern wedding because it offers a minimalist look (similar to the succulent). If you want to decorate your wedding with air plants, we recommend using them as centerpieces, like so:

Or in a vase:

Another way to use air plants as decor is to hang them, whether from trees, rafters, or displayed on a back wall as a sconce or plant holder. These brass Himmeli designs are some of the prettiest I’ve seen yet…

Trend Alert → Bridesmaid Skirts with Hi Low Hem

We’ve talked about bridesmaid trends, from mismatched bridesmaid dresses to these amazing convertible dresses. But what about bridesmaid skirts? They’re all the rage right now especially for casual, laid-back weddings (think a wedding in the woods or in the mountains or a western wedding, as a few examples). But it’s not just any skirt that is trending right now: we especially love these hi low hem bridesmaid skirts because they’re absolutely perfect. They feature a hi low hem, a sought-after (+ stylish) style. These skirts can be paired with any style of sandal and tank top, which is pretty much guaranteed to keep your bridesmaids happy. Third, it’s an awesomely affordable price (so bridesmaids will vote you the coolest bride ever). And, finally, there are tons of colors available so you can coordinate with your wedding color palette with ease.

I mean, honestly, this skirt HAS IT ALL.

Take a look — it might just go on your own summer must-have list. I know I want need one.

Bridesmaid Skirts with Hi Low Hem

We spotted these bridesmaid skirts over at Ashley Nef, who is doing a supremely awesome job outfitting bridesmaids in cool, comfy designs. I mean, just look at this perfect mustard yellow skirt:

The hi low hem isn’t just for style: it’s essential for bridesmaids who hate the too-short skirt without having to go all-out floor-length (which can be incredibly hot in the summer). It’s a very happy medium.
