Happy Friday! If you liked our round-up of 40 alternative wedding bouquets, you’ll also love these sola and fabric bouquets we spotted at The Sunny Bee! I was browsing Melissa’s shop the other day and couldn’t believe how many beautiful designs she’s recently whipped up for brides-to-be! I adore these sola and fabric flower bouquets because they’re completely custom and lovingly handmade, right down to the colors to coordinate with your wedding. What I love most is the fact they’ll never wilt, so you’ll always have a beautiful reminder of your wedding day! And since there’s no watering required, you’ll be able to keep them looking like new for years to come — even if you have a black thumb like me! ;) I kid. But seriously, my flowers just sprang up out of nowhere and now I’m scrambling to weed, feed, and get started on spring gardening even though it snowed just a few weekends ago. I’m not ready yet! But I digress… get ready for an explosion of gorgeousness with six handpicked bouquets I know you’ll love as much as I do…
If you’re planning a rustic wedding, adding a little flair to your space with antique, reclaimed, or re-purposed décor will make it your own.

But who has time for that? There’s an easier way to find what you need for your wedding (and afterward, as home decor!) thanks to AntiqueFarmhouse.com. We’ve handpicked nineteen items we love from their site to inspire your rustic wedding decor. Here are some products and ideas on how to use them…

Happy New Year’s Eve! And blink, just like that, 2015 fades quickly into 2016 tonight. How did that happen? This year, I’m resolving to NOT make a resolution, since they never really work out for me. Instead, I’m doing something different: this happy things jar I spotted on Pinterest where you fill an empty jar with little folded notes about good things that happen throughout the year. Then you read them the following New Year’s Eve and reflect on all the wonderful things that happened. My jar will undoubtedly be filled with amazing things little Andrew does, like how today he said, “Bless you, Mama” when I sneezed (!!), and about the arrival of Baby #2 in May (!!) and how he or she will bring us more joy than we imagined possible, as Andrew has. Probably also some hilarious things that Andrew tells me as jokes, some awesome house projects, and hopefully some big goals accomplished on my own list. If I had to guess, yours might include things about your wedding planning (hopefully letting us alleviate some of the stress along the way), the big day and all the events that come with it (bachelorette party, bridal shower), and the honeymoon. You’ll probably also talk about registering together because it’s way too much fun. No doubt you’ll have an awesome year ahead. I just know it. :) Today we’re sharing some fun New Year’s Eve wedding ideas I rounded up as inspiration. Read on to find out what I’ve discovered and see why NYE weddings rule. Enjoy!
Oh, how I adore barn weddings! Barn weddings are, in my opinion, the perfect pairing of an outdoor wedding with added comfort for guests. The weather for an outdoor wedding can be unpredictable. Although tents provide some reassurance, a barn is a pretty safe bet. Inside, guests can stay warm and enjoy strolling appetizers, seated dinner, a full-scale bar, and a solid dance floor. Just a few steps outside, though, they can enjoy a stroll along wildflower fields underneath a dark night sky lit up by stars. Ah, isn’t it romantic? Barn weddings are still all the rage, and we don’t see this craze going away anytime soon! Today we’re showing you twenty-one barn ideas for weddings to ring in the new year and get your creativity flowing. Which number is your favorite? I’m obsessed with #21. I guess you could say I saved the best for last. Just wait until you see it!
Isn’t this dance floor breathtaking?
Happy Friday! Emma here. One of my favorite gift ideas for 2016 weddings has to be one of these photo frames. I know, photo frames have been a gift idea for decades, but these are different — each frame is unlike any you’ve seen before. The lovely Laura of Montana Snow has designed these beautiful rustic photo frames as lasting keepsakes for years to come. Instead of fussing over a glass holder (and those annoying picture holder metals on the back that always chip your nails), these frames hold pictures in place with a sturdy clip. You can swap out photos in an instant right from the front or hold a small stack to keep on rotation at your desk. Plus, these frames are customized for your recipient, whether it be yourself (try a newly engaged frame or just married photo frame like these), your mom or dad (try these), or your grandma or grandpa (they’ll love these). There’s a little something here for everyone! Take a look at our favorites below and — you guessed it! — enter for a chance to win one as a gift for your parents! Good luck!
Here’s my favorite photo frame for newly engaged couples! Add a photo of the proposal, your engagement ring, or the two of you right after you said “Yes!”:

Hi, loves! Emma here. Today we’re tackling your ceremony — more specifically, ceremony accessories you’ll be happy to have! We’ve rounded up seven accessories for rustic weddings as one theme example, since we love to coordinate everything by theme around here. :) For this theme, you’ll want to look for accessories with touches of burlap, jute twine, wood, or grapevine, paired with lace, linen, or ribbon accents to soften the look. To inspire you, we’ve found a burlap ring pillow, flower girl basket, aisle runner, and more! Now you can finally cross ceremony accessories from your to-do list! Enjoy!
Ceremony Accessories – Rustic Weddings
1. An aisle runner
If your venue allows, consider an aisle runner for your ceremony. An aisle runner can really tie together your entire look and set the tone in an instant. This burlap runner we spotted at Love Burlap features a hint of ruffled fabric and a monogram letter, which I love for that extra pop of personalization.
