This wedding dress was trashed! Brittany and Mario’s West Virginia trash the dress session was a blast. This couple married this past July and decided a “trash the dress” was just what was needed after Brittany’s dress suffered a blue icing accident during the reception. They worked with their wedding photographer, Olivia, from Liv Hefner Photography to put together a photo session that was artistic, fun, and a little colorful. Meet Brittany and Mario and see the paint fly after the click…

Are you looking for “something blue” with a little subtlety? We spotted this sweet yet subtle something blue hairpiece featuring a petite feather clip and a tiny pop of aqua blue accent feathers. Hackle feathers, ivory ostrich wisps, and the pearl cluster embellishment (which I love) finishes this pretty piece. By The Headband Shoppe.

Today we are sharing with you an incredible rustic real wedding with tons of handmade elements and a rustic, homespun flair. We love to hear the details directly from the bride, so take it away, Kendel!
She tells us, “Country, rustic, charming, antique, old-fashion, warm, fun and intimate. Just a few words I would use to describe our wedding day, August 14th, 2010. If I had to describe it in one sentence it would be: The most amazing day that I got to marry my best friend while surrounded by the charming handiwork of my friends and family who all came together to make our day really special and memorable.
Our wedding took place at Balls Falls Conservation Area in Jordan ON. During the reception we had a slide show and several games throughout the evening including the shoe game and the newly wed game, which were a lot of fun. We ended the night with a few fireworks and our car drove through two large fountain style fireworks as our exit.
Our wedding was truly a DIY wedding and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. If it wasn’t something I made personally then it was an item made by a friend or family member, and together everything came out looking great, and it was even nicer knowing it was made with love and hard work from those involved in the day.
We worked with a relatively small budget and yet everything was exactly what I wanted. I hope the images of our wedding inspire other couples to really consider DIY as well as the power of asking friends and family members for their expertise when it comes to planning a wedding. You don’t always have to rely on the ‘experts’ when there are experts all around you amongst your friends and family!

Cecily and Jacob’s peacock themed wedding is classy, sophisticated and unique. Their wedding took place at the beautiful Wright House in Mesa, Arizona just a few weeks ago. With colorful peacock feathers adorning everything from the brides headpiece, bouquet, flowers and decorations at the reception, we love how the peacock theme ties in with everything including the grooms tie. Their peacock themed wedding was captured by Aubry from Aubry Startin Photography.

I discussed my fascination with tulle earlier today (non-itchy tulle, of course), so I thought it appropriate to share a few more of my favorite things: the color pink and pearl embellishments. Needless to say, when I spotted this bohemian hair wreath by BowsnBerries it was love at first sight. This beautiful dusty pink rose flower hair clip is placed onto a handmade wired wreath, with glass pearl accents and a subtle mauve satin ribbon. Bohemian brides, you’ll especially love this look – plus, your bridesmaids can follow suit!

I’m a tulle-loving girl. I think the netted fabric adds a little something to a dress – particularly a wedding gown – giving it the lift it needs and deserves. But, let’s face it, lovelies: the stuff itches. I have a black and white polka dot dress with a bright red sash (it’s quite fabulous) but I avoid wearing it because the bottom layer (bright red tulle!) is so dang itchy. And, if you sit in it all day it leaves marks on your legs. So, when I saw this tulle wedding ball gown I thought it looked lovely, but imagined the itchiness that would ensue. Ouch. However, I quickly discovered this is an entirely different type of tulle. In fact, this sweet soft cotton tulle ballgown is just that: soft! The dress is handmade from 80% cotton, with all the structural parts underneath the tulle constructed of organic cotton sateen making it soft against your skin. It is lightweight and party-ready. Take a peek…

Good morning, lovelies! Happy Monday to you! We hope you had a restful weekend. I (Emma here!) am the MOH for my best friend’s wedding, and this weekend was her bachelorette party. It was so much fun – can’t wait to show you all some of the DIY details I did! But, first, we’re kicking off this week with this awe-inspiring vintage grey flower sash with bling! Every bride needs a bit of bling, whether it be your shiny new diamond ring on your right finger, a pair of classy chandelier earrings that pop, or a sash with rhinestones and sparkle, below, spotted at Yaneth and Company. One of the reasons we selected this piece is because of the color (I seriously LOVE grey) and unique netting. The sash offers a vintage look with plenty of rhinestones, Swarovski crystals, pearls, vintage buttons, and beading. And, since it’s handmade, you can be assured no bride will have the same sash as you! Each one is completely unique. Colors available are grey (shown), ivory, white, and black. Perfect for bridesmaids, too!

Today we’re featuring Kayla and Tom’s classically vintage wedding. From Kayla’s beautiful dress and grand wedding reception at the First Luthern Church to the artsy and industrial reception place at The Plains Art Museum, this wedding depicts a beautiful vintage wedding at its fullest. Kayla and Tom’s North Dakota wedding was captured by Yvonne and Sara from Yvonne Denault Photography.
The bride Kayla fills in on their details, “Tom and I met the second week in August 2007. We were on a blind date that began as a double date with Tom’s sister Aana and boyfriend Josh. Little did we know, Josh and Aana would leave us to be on a blind date! It worked out perfect, Tom and I hit it off and were pretty much inseparable for the next three and a half years. Tom proposed the evening of December 2009 in downtown Fargo. I was so surprised, I will never forget that moment.

If you’re looking for a barely-there capelet, look no further. This whisper-soft tulle bridal capelet is barely there but manages to leave a sweet statement. This capelet is handmade with yards of pretty ivory tulle stitched to a base of ivory silk dupioni and lined with ivory cotton velveteen. (See? We told you it was whisper soft! No itching allowed on your wedding day.) The capelet is finished with grosgrain ribbon and tied into a bow in the front. It is a perfect addition to a simple bridal gown.

Yesterday, we showcased a beautiful handmade wedding dress with eyelets that was simple, short + sweet. So, today, we knew we had to follow suit with an open heart dress for your bridesmaids, along with a few others we love by Alexandra Grecco. It is positively sweltering outside (90+ degrees with high humidity) and let’s face it – you don’t want your bridesmaids to be uncomfortable during the I Do’s. Summer weddings are the perfect time to relax and kick back, not sweat through heavy, uncomfortable fabrics. Keep ‘em cool with these short, airy handmade bridesmaid dresses…

Ok, loves, I’ve found it! Finally… a sweet and subtle way to tie in the adage of “Something Blue” into your bridal ensemble. Who would have thought a something blue hem would be an idea that never crossed my mind? When I saw it on this bride, I knew I had to share it with you. Grab a spool of this and secretly sew your initial or the wedding date into your slip or underside of your dress hem. Not a sew-ista? Let a professional take care of it — your seamstress will know the most inconspicuous place to stitch it in.
