We will be doing our own florals, because I am cheap (achem! Thrifty!), and also because we like creative projects. So, this is the first in my series of simple florals that don’t look tacky. I think there are many variations of this that would look lovely and eclectic, which pretty much sums up my taste. Ideally I want long family style tables, but if round tables end up being more practical, something like this would look really nice.

Snippet and Ink, a wedding blog that I can not heap enough praise on, has been doing fantastic real wedding Saturdays. This week they had a wedding that looked, well, a little out of my price range. But! They had this killer advent calender style guest book that I just loved. There are a million cool ideas going around these days for creative guest books, but I like this one because it would utilize my crafty collaging skills, and because it would create a neat piece of art to hang at home.
So Jordan over at Oh Happy Day has me thinking… is a cake buffet the way to go? In my heart of hearts I’m a little tied to the iconic image of cutting the wedding cake, but this would be such a affordable stylish choice, and there would be lots of different things to try. Honestly, this looks much tastier then your average wedding cake. And of course we would still have the ceremonial cutting.
(PS, there will be no cake smooshing on faces.)
This is one more for the “It can be cold in the bay area in August” file. And I HATE any feeling of chill. I like the simple idea of a brightly colored shawl to go with my wedding dress. I’m sure I’ll be wearing brightly colored shoes anyway.
