Friday Favorites–Weddings

Next Wednesday, June 29th, my husband and I will be celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary.  It’s been 20 great years, but it feels like it was only yesterday that we were two kids, heading off to start our life together.  Now we HAVE two kids and a lot of road behind us.  There was really no choice in my favorites this week.  It had to be weddings.

We were married back in the days of the white guest book and feather pen.  I’m kinda glad to see we’ve moved on.  This Birthday Calendar Guestbook from The Bright Life is pure genius.

Wedding or not, this Tree Pedestal Cake Stand from OnceWed is beautiful.

This Embroidered Love Pillow from Growing Home would be a fun bridal shower activity and a lovely gift for the bride.

It might be worth it to have this many bridesmaids just to make this rainbow.  And all the flowers match!  From The Knotty Bride.

Coffee Bean Favor Bags from Intimate Weddings.  How do I get invited?

For some reason, I just love the idea of these Mini Pinata Favors from Ruffled

I don’t remember ever seeing Save the Date cards before I got married.  If I were going to have some though, I’d want them to be just like these from Weddingbee.

There’s just something elegant about a black and white wedding cake.  Add some red, like this one shown on Project Wedding, and I might swoon a little.

I’ve noticed a trend toward smaller veils lately.  This Mini Veil from Emmaline Bride is just right.

I love flowers, and especially wedding flowers, but whoever came up with bridesmaids carrying clutches instead was brilliant.  Etsy seller jennalou06 offers a Design Your Own option.
