Ribbon Wands with Bells → Ceremony Toss Alternative

After the ceremony, guests like to toss something at the newlyweds as they make their grand exit. We’ve shared some of our favorite ceremony tossing ideas in the past, but happens when your venue says you can’t toss anything? Some venues are doing so, since rice and petals require too much cleanup afterward. So, we recommend these ribbon wands with bells instead. We love them because they’re colorful (and custom to coordinate with your palette), they are lovely noisemakers, which makes them festive; and they’re mess-free! You can’t get much better than that! Check out a few of our favorite ribbon wands below, all handpicked from the lovely Kate Kate NYC, ribbon wand extraordinaire!

7 Reasons Your Dress *Might* Need a Sash

When you’ve finally found The Dress, you might be ready to pick out your veil (or alternative), shoes, or even a dress sash. But does your dress even need a sash? Generally, a dress is perfect as is — but a sash can sometimes add a little glam or sparkle to a dress. A sash is never a requirement — but whether or not to wear one really depends on the dress you choose and how the sash will complement your overall look. Today we’re sharing seven reasons why your dress might need a sash.

On to the inspiration and, might I add, some of the loveliest sashes we’ve seen yet! Will you be wearing one?

Does Your Dress Need a Sash?

Here are reasons why your dress might need a sash:

1. You found one you really, really love — and you just couldn’t say no.

I get it. A late night shopping online or browsing Pinterest caused you to find a sash you just couldn’t turn down.

2. Your dress is elegant, but simple — and you crave a little bling.

A sash is the best way to add a little sparkle and shine to your dress. Pearls, rhinestones, Swarovski crystals, or colorful blooms are just a few ways brides choose to add a dose of pretty, personal style.

Sometimes you just need some rhinestones…

31 Wedding Hairstyle Ideas: Day 9 – Ribbon Updo

Good morning, loves! Well, get ready to be inspired because, like I said yesterday, these wedding hairstyles are getting to be pretty amazing.

(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…
