Red has always been my least favorite color, and I’ve seen a lot of weddings where it has been really overdone. The way the bride used the color as a little accent is exceptionally flawless in this wedding. And they are adorable :-) All I can say is… beautiful.
Love this more than words can say!
Yes, YEs, YES!!!!!!
Ok, so today, I fell in love…..with a new blog!!!!!! ::::::::SouthernAisle::::::::
Being a Southern G.R.I.T myself, I have a little bit of a bias towards weddings that have a southern or slightly rustic theme.
This wedding that I am about to share with you is absolutely amazing, and it was right here in my home state of Georgia!!!

This is such an amazing idea and an easy DIY project for anyone who wants to add a little vintage flair to their wedding.

The brilliant team at 100 Layer Cake never cease to amaze me — their latest inspiration? Vintage wallpaper! Jillian Clark sent this gorgeous project over to us — enjoy!
We have a particular interest in patterns and colors and textures when it comes to weddings and decor in general. So when we think about projects to share with brides planning and crafting their wedding, these elements immediately come to mind. The challenging part can be finding patterns that are unique, that go together, and that come in big enough pieces that you can use them for all sorts of projects throughout your wedding.
Hello, vintage wallpaper!
Actually, it doesn’t have to be vintage. It’s the cuteness of the patterns and the amount of material you get with each roll that makes it special. But you can find awesome deals on vintage rolls and the patterns tend to be really fun.
Because you have so much of it, wallpaper is an awesome way to carry a color theme through your entire wedding.
We made envelope liners (with matching vintage stamps!), paper flowers to use in arrangements and as place cards, plate chargers, and table runners. But the list of projects goes on. You could easily use it to back tags for favors, for a belly band around your invite suite, as details on your programs, perhaps for your menus, maybe even for coasters. Literally anywhere you plan to use paper you can incorporate your new friendly patterns!

Now, pay careful attention to this color scheme… Do you see how there are touches of pink, peach and cream?? Look at the color tie that the grooms is wearing. Do you see the pistachio minty green???? PERFECTION!!!!!!!!!!!
Why do I love this so much? This is the closest thing I can find that could show the color sheme I have all dreamed up inside my head.
I am so happy that I found this!!
Ok, so late night thought…well late for me, it’s only 10:30. Anyways, I just wanted to put this out there……..weddings are wonderful, dresses are pretty, decor and flowers are fun to obsess over, BUT people have been getting married for ages and ages and there is only one thing never goes out of style: love.
I cannot wait to marry my best friend!
I am so in love this completely original idea that my fiance and I had for our wedding guest book. We derived the “wedding wish tree door” from the newly popular idea of having a wedding wish tree in place of a guestbook. I loved the idea that people could leave you a little note with well wishes or advice. I was not, however, in love with the idea of having a tree or branches to hang the notes from, it seemed a little whimsy for our theme. (Our theme by the way is a rustic country chic with vintage pieces mixed in.) Anyways, my fiance found this beautiful 100+ year old door, ahem…for FREE and the idea kind of developed from there.
Attached to the door are vintage door knobs for hanging our guest’s little love notes.
I also made the door tags myself with manilla mail tags and a rubber stamp.
Let me know what you think!!!!
I just located this little gem of a blog while searching for shoes (see previous post). This is an amazing compilation of pretty pictures and inspiration. I think I may have found a new obsession. See Cupcake Inspiration here.
I don’t know if anyone else has had this problem, but I had such a hard time deciding what I wanted to get my bridesmaids. I ended up buying them 5 gifts because I could never stop looking for the perfect gift!!
Basically, I spent WAAAY to much money and wasted a large amount of time.
1. Decide on a budget for your gifts. Don’t forget that you may want to spend a little more on the matron or maid of honor.
2. Think of a few gift ideas that will fit in your budget. Keep in mind that you don’t have to get each person the same thing. I personally think it’s really nice and personal to get everyone something different that reflects their personality.
3. Once you have purchased your gifts, STOP looking. It’s over, move on to the next obsession.
Here are a few of my favorite gift ideas…….
ANTHROPOLOGIE “Tea-And-Crumpets” APRON
Its functional, cute and great for a cooking enthusiast.
Wax Seal Initial Pendant via Ritzy Misfiton etsy.
There are a ton of options available on etsy, but I personally ordered these from Ritzy Misfit and I LOVE them! They also come in many different colors and metals.
Personalized Aluminum Water Bottles
Yay! Saving the planet and staying hydrated at the same time, what a great combo…….
You can find a link to these particluar ones here.

Love love love this website!! I love how there are little notes on each piece, what a personal and meaningful touch. Please be sure to look at the bridal customization page here.
The Paper Nickel Stamp Company!!! Please visit their website here.
I could not be more in love with this idea:
- authentic vintage stamps for your wedding invitations
- every mixed package of stamps is different
- custom orders are available
:::sigh::: I wish I had known about these before I sent my invitations…..
These are one of my favorite types of flowers. They come in just about every color you can think of and add so much dimension to a bouquet.
I just ran into this goregeous little posting over on The Bride’s Cafe, to view the entire post, please click here.
I just discovered this and am awaiting my first pair!!!
To get your own go to the Panty By Post website.
PS:::They now have a Bridal Line!!
I have to admit, I am one of those brides that went out a week after I got engaged and bought a wedding dress. You notice I did not say “my” wedding dress….Why? Because I did not do my research folks!!!! Four months later I actually found the dress, MY dress. I would like to share with you my profound discovery.
Let me introduce you to Paloma Blanca!!!!!
Aren’t these lovely? I paid less than $2,000 for my gown!
Can you guess which one is mine?
There is something about this wedding that makes me swoon. Maybe its the fact that I am using suspenders and bowties in our wedding or maybe its the farmy background that seems so hometown and quaint. Either way, I am in love.
To see more of this beautiful wedding please visit Ruffled.
Did I mention that I also love love love to DIY?
For my latest inspiration/obsession see below:
These “vintage” cake stands are beautiful and don’t take long to make.
In fact, I am using some of these for my wedding.
You only need:
- vintage plates
- glass or metal candlesticks
- crystal drawer pull (this is optional)
- epoxy glue (slow drying if you are making more than one vintage cake stand)
- Popsicle stick
- something to mix your epoxy

There have been soo many beautiful things that have inspired me throughout my wedding planning process. However, I would like to share the wedding that started it all for me. This is the first wedding that I saw on any blog, ever! It was all thanks to our pal “google” and to a wonderful wedding blog called Once Wed. My life would never be the same, I think I recall that first night I spent about 4 hours on OnceWed.
I still can’t take the lovlieness that is this wedding! WOW…..
Oui! Wed- Yes I am starting a wedding blog.
Ok, so I admit that it’s kind of cheesy, but I LOVE to use double entendres. I feel like we need more of those in the world. Not only do they keep you thinking, they also bring humor playfullness into your everyday mundane conversation. Also, I REALLY tried to learn French in college, but the end result was only a few words that I occasionally use to impress my friends and co-workers.
Anyways, why a wedding blog you might ask?
Well, over the past few months of planning my August 6, 2011 wedding, I have become pretty much become addicted to these bridal blogs. How could you not looove browsing thorugh pages and pages of beautiful things? Well, I just dont know. What I do know is that I would like to serve as a resource for those who have developed the same love of the vintage and ecectic style that I have come to adore.
I appreciate your reading and please let me know what you think!
