Wow, talk about raising the bar on wedding donuts: this is the loveliest donut wedding cake we’ve ever seen! This heavenly three-tiered cake, made of donuts, was crafted by the pastry team at the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore for a recent wedding. The cake consisted of beautifully iced donuts, surrounded by white dahlias, lavender roses, and pink carnations. And, what were they served with? Espresso shots, of course! We call that perfection from beginning to end.

Hi, brides! Question: Are you planning an antler wedding? (“A what…?!”) I know, I know. An antler wedding is probably one of the most unusual wedding themes out there, but bear with us: it’s a trend we think rustic-loving brides will positively adore. Think: deer monograms, antler-decorated everything, ‘doe’ and ‘buck’ chair signs, faux antlers tucked into your bouquet… you get the idea. Since we are all-aboard this trend, we’ve rounded up thirty-one of the most unique antler wedding ideas to inspire your big day. And, it goes without saying: we love faux antlers… no need to round up real ones. (Try making DIY faux antlers using branches or make a set with clay.) Okay, ready to be inspired? Let’s begin…
Antler Wedding Ideas
For this round-up, we’ve spotted a little bit of everything. You’ll find antler place cards for your wedding party with charming calligraphy tags, stickers, antler wax seals, a guest book, bottle openers with a chic antler print, and much more. Many of these finds are handmade, while others were spotted via Real Weddings so you can see how couples pulled off a (chic!) antler wedding. See the full list of vendors and sources after the post!

Hi, loves! Meet the newest trend in bridesmaid gift-giving: mismatched clutches. Giving clutch purses to bridesmaids as a thank you gift isn’t a new idea, but we love this fresh approach. Instead of picking the same clutch to give to each bridesmaid, consider mismatched clutches instead: it allows you to pick a unique pattern or print that suits her unique style while tying in your color palette for a cohesive look. Ready to find out more? Read on to see a few hand-picked finds we spotted over at BagEnvy Handbags which exemplifies this trend perfectly.
