I'm not really a "whimsical" type of person but man do I get inspired when I see a whimsical wedding! It makes me want to throw away all my classical elegant theme ideas and go for something more...fun? Anyways, I was looking at Bridal Guides "Real Weddings" section (I love reading/seeing other peoples weddings) and found this great wedding.

  

  

Step 1 in a Whimsical Wedding: Setting the tone, check out these awesome tree themed invites...and I think they made them themselves.  I would never...repeat never ever be able to pull this off, I'm so un-creative it's not even funny!

 

Ok so after finding their escort card on the tree, guests found their tables by checking the time, each table had a clock face in the center with a time representing the table number.  Then the brides mom made easles out of old vintage forks. ----This must just be one creative family, love the vintage fork idea kudos to you mom!



A butterfly cake topper with string dolls!? So I guess there is actually a company who made these, if my wedding wasn't going to be so traditional I would totally be perusing the internet looking for this company! How cute would Trever and Chelsea dolls be?

 

For favors each guest received a mason jar with either drink packet or a bottle of Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey---they were lucky enough to have a family friend who donated a 20 year collection of mason jars....I'm sure a load off of them and a great addition to this fun whimsical wedding!

As if you didn’t have enough things to consider for your wedding day, here’s another one: what to wear when getting ready.
This (gorgeous, glowing) bride has the right idea! Wear something cute that you can pull up and down or zip off so it doesn’t interfere with your hair and makeup. White is classic bridal of course, but be careful because your clothes may end up covered in shimmer and bronzer after the makeup artist is finished.
And REMEMBER, you’re going to be photographed in it, so don’t just throw on any old thing, and make sure it’s not see-through (this just happened at a wedding I attended and you can see the bride’s boobies in all her getting-ready photos, I swear).
Pass on the hotel logo robe, and Juicy sweatsuits are so Britney Spears’ second wedding, so I vote for a sweet dress with an elastic top and maybe a ruffle, like this bride donned, or a simple cotton maxi dress in a jewel tone. Comfy and looks great in photos.

If you can, go with your wedding florist to the wholesale flower market. You’ll have to be up long before the sun rises, but it’s the most beautiful site in the whole world … colors and textures that will make your mind explode.

Want a faux glow for your bachelorette party, wedding or honeymoon? Of course, we all do. We just don’t want to turn orange, look completely unlike ourselves, or smell like a bag of soggy Fritos.
Faking a tan takes years of practice, believe me. But here’s what to know to look golden, healthy and beautiful:
* Spray tan. Runs about $30 and gives you the option of choosing three levels of color. What to know: Shower first as you won’t be able to shower for 6 to 8 hours after you spray tan. Use an exfoliant and lotion so your tan is even and lasts longer. You’ll be naked and spray tan is cold, beware! For your palms, toes, fingernails, etc, use the lotion they provide that prevents the spray tan from sticking. Bend your finger and arms so the color doesn’t get into knuckles and elbows. If you’re not already fairly tan, stick with a Level 1 tan or the color will be unnatural. Go a day or two before your event — spray tan smell isn’t the greatest.
* Tanning Lotion/Spray. You can try an everyday lotion that gradually builds color over time, but I really love a spray that goes on evenly and quickly or a gel-lotion that provides instant golden color and fully develops into a tan in a few hours. My absolute favorite products are Sally Hansen Airbrush Tan and L’Oreal Sublime Bronze. Sally Hansen: Smells not so great, but is perfect for quick application without missing a spot, including the face. Dries instantly, doesn’t come off on clothes. L’Oreal: Offers instant color that looks beautiful. Let it dry for 5 or 10 minutes before putting on light-colored clothes. Be aware of the sparkles, although they’re subtle. I should be the spokeperson for this product, honestly.
* Airbrush tan. At $50 or more, this is the big sister of spray tanning, where a professional applies a fine mist with an airbrushing tool. The nice thing is you’re guaranteed even coverage and no weird streaks. You can leave on an old swimsuit or underwear if you’re modest. A bonus: Have the technician create “airbrush coutouring” that gives the impression of great definition in the abs!
*The beach. I’m kidding. Don’t try this. You’ll end up looking sunburnt on your important day and tan lines (and skin cancer) are not pretty.

Honestly, anything from Emersonmade is the perfect gift for me :)

Must post this lovely spring-flavored bridal shower for 2 reasons:
1. Kumquats are new my favorite unexpected bit of decor.
2. It’s shot at an old favorite, Cafe Mimosa in San Clemente, where they have the cutest patio and the best croissant French toast of all time.

Tip of the Day: Wedding Traditions to Skip


There are so many wedding customs and traditions, but are they all must-dos? Of course not! A couple may decide to pass on a wedding custom or tradition for a number of reasons. For one, many couples’ weddings are getting pared down due in hopes of saving money. Some traditional aspects may fall by the wayside as couples seek to make their weddings more personal. Or, they may just find some customs silly.

Just remember that when you skip certain wedding customs, you willhave a few guests who are surprised and may question your decision. Be prepared to answer to them! But here are a few traditions you have WedSpace’s permission to do without:

 
~ Favors: Unless the gift is immediately edible, many favors will get left behind. Skipping favors such as candles, CDs, and mini photo frames can save you hundreds of dollars and most guests won’t miss them anyway. If you want to give something, tell guests they can take home their table centerpieces as favors if they like.

 
~ Tossing the Bouquet: A recent bride on WedSpace.com commented that she really wanted to skip the bouquet toss at her upcoming wedding; at a friend’s wedding, the ladies were practically being dragged out onto the floor and she didn’t want to embarrass her single female friends. Truthfully, many female guests say they duck into the bathroom during the bouquet toss. Plus, if you don’t do it, you’ll save money on purchasing the second “tossing bouquet.” The same can be said for the garter toss; grooms may want to skip that custom for same reasons.

 
~ Dollar Dance: I find this tradition — where the bride dances with guests in exchange for a dollar or more toward the honeymoon — a bit outdated. OK, truthfully, I think it’s cheesy. This was popular during eras past when young brides and grooms didn’t have much money. Modernly, couples are more financially stable, as they get married later in life. Set up a honeymoon registry to allow guests to help fund the honeymoon and skip the Dollar Dance.

 
~ Receiving Line: The Receiving Line is a wedding custom that many couples choose to skip. It’s very formal and often means that guests (and the bride and groom!) end up standing around for a long time, instead of enjoying the reception. Instead of a Receiving Line, the couple can simply make a stop at each guest table to say hello and thank people who have traveled to the wedding.

~ Saving the Cake Top: Who wants to eat stale, freezer-burned cake a year after their wedding? Many couples won’t mind passing on this custom. Additionally, it is increasingly popular to serve cupcakes, mini pies, or a dessert buffet instead of a traditional cake, so some couples won’t have a cake top to save for their anniversary. Instead of saving the cake top, register for a rare bottle of champagne and celebrate with that on your first anniversary.

Love the fireflies design of this invite … by Paige Rothhaar
Once upon a time, I was a shiny new freshman in college, sitting on a Nashville lawn with 1500 other kids at orientation, and I saw fireflies come out of the trees and swirl around me. They didn’t even seem real … I was awestruck.

Is wedding insurance necessary?


For anyone out there who might be wondering, wedding insurance can be great peace of mind, and it’s not expensive. There are 2 types:

  • Cancellation/Postponement: Protects your investment and down payments in the event of a serious issue — illness, death in the family, severe weather, or someone’s (gasp) left at the altar
  • Liability: Many venues get this, and it can be a good idea for you too, especially for a wedding at home, for example — protects against mishaps, like is Granny slips and falls and gets injured, or property damage

The cost is small when you consider all the money you spend on the event — prices are usually about 1 to 2% of the total cost of your wedding and coverage can range up to $2 million.

And yes, WedSafe is the company we used and loved!


Check it out, it might be for you!
