Good morning, loves! Well, get ready to be inspired because, like I said yesterday, these wedding hairstyles are getting to be pretty amazing. Today we’re featuring a ribbon updo: a wedding hairstyle with a soft ribbon wrapped right through it and worn in the front like a halo headband. (You might remember this similar ribbon braid we talked about before. Cute, right?) I thought this one was my favorite, but today’s pick is totally taking the cake. So, what is a ‘ribbon updo’? See for yourself…

We love twists on traditional escort cards, especially when the bride and groom incorporate a rustic flair. Heidi & Alex’s rustic DIY wedding is completely awe-inspiring, but one of our favorite details is the DIY skeleton key escort cards. They secured vintage piano music sheets onto an old, rustic wooden frame and suspended skeleton keys (tied onto escort card tags) with twine. This is one of our favorite real wedding details ever! Beautifully done, you two!

Spotted: A sweet, subtle, easy-to-DIY mason jar centerpiece for your wedding! If a powerful punch of royal blue is the look you’re after, this centerpiece has you covered! This blue is royally a-mazing and would look great incorporated with light blue hydrangeas. I can imagine plenty of these scattered throughout a rustic wedding, garden wedding, or bridal shower luncheon… lovely!

The pearl bouquet wrap is one trend train I’m hopping onto with both heels! A pearl bouquet wrap is an simple solution to a traditionally plain bouquet wrap typically made of satin or lace. A pearl wrap can be added to the satin or lace for a glammed up look, no matter how simple or extravagant it may be. Spotted via Style Me Pretty with gorgeous floral design by Flowers by Felicia and photography by Kristin Weaver.
