Etsy Feature: E&AHeritage

Here is your weekly etsy feature! I am in a slightly obsessive sailor inspired stage, which just so happens to work in my favor since it is trending right now. I came across this little lovely when looking up pillow ideas and I just had to share it. Aren't these adorable for a fun twist on beach wedding? I love the idea of a vintage sailor themed wedding with this for the ring bearer. Support your "local" artists.

So Sweet Friday

I hear alot of wedding stories, and I mean alot. So it can take alot to make one stand out to me. This story is one of those. It is SO SWEET. Enjoy! 

Don't you just love it when her friend says " now stick that there behind your ears". A good MOH tells you where to spray your perfume. :)

Etsy Feature: ReadyGo

Happy Wednesday lovelies! I know I know.. I've been awol for a while(okay a long while) so in light of 2012, a new start, and coming back to blogging I wanted to start off with a new tradition, an etsy feature every week. Since I'm always on etsy I decided it might be nice to share my favorites weekly with you. So starting today Ill do an etsy feature weekly ( hold me to it!) and you can see all the lovely cuteness I spend too much time hunting down. This week's is beautiful ReadyGo. They make these adorable cake toppers and banners that you can customize to fit your wedding style & theme. They are so super cute that I want to use them for a party right now.. our 3 year anniversary is coming up- that calls for a banner celebration right?

Cute Idea Saturday: Here Comes the Bride

I love the idea of "announcing the bridal walk" with something other than a song change. I once heard of someone who had a child ring bells, but in case children and bells sounds too risky ( i don't blame you ) here is an alternative. Paint your own quirky message or just go with something simple.

Mr & Mrs: Walker Video

Two months ago some very good friends of mine; Andy and Kaitlin got married. This is the adorable video recap of their wedding. Good work guys! I will be posting the images from some things I got to help our with from their day. It was such a beautiful DIY wedding. Andy and Kaitlin have impeccable taste. Happy Two Months Walkers!

DIY Wednesday: Feed your Guests

Whoah it has been a while. I wish I could say that it was for a really great reason but honestly I've just been very busy- some exciting news that I'll tell you about in my next post. For this DIY Wed( yes I know its Thurs) I thought I'd inspire you with some ideas for feeding your guests! Here you go:

If you are not having a bar or just want some cute ways to present non-alchoholic beverages try a self-serve lemonade stand, this would be cute with a "tip the bride & groom" jar that goes toward your honeymoon! Have the groomsmen( or a friend) build a small stand and paint a sign with your beverages. 
 Serve your punch in an apothecary jar instead of a punch bowl. I LOVE these chalkboard nametags! Make your own with this spray chalkboard paint by painting painters tape and tearing it into strips for each glass. Then leave chalk near the drinks for guests to write their name.
 For those of you who dont want a traditional cake or dont like cake at all(I don't) try a cookies stand or a different kind of treat that you both like. I think this would be adorable with bottles of milk(soy, almond, rice, and cows) on ice in pails so it would be a "cookies & milk" stand! A brownies stand would be great too! Figure out what you like and grab some friends to help you stack some hay bales, suitcases, or boxes and then make a simple sign out of 2x4's and some white paint then lay an old window across to hold the treats display. Simple. Delicious. 
 Dont like oreos? Have your mom or another baker make you some homemade cookies to stack like a cake, all you need is a cake stand and a friend with a steady hand. So easy! 
enjoy! get creative!
