When your mermaid of honor helps you get #marriedaf

Who made a “timeless wedding” the only goal? There’s something wonderful about seeing an ’80s wedding photo (or hell, an 1880s wedding photo) and getting a window into a frozen moment of wedding history. Plus, #realtalk, things change, and how long till emoji cakes are considered the new classic? So in honor of trying something that’s very right now, here are some of my favorite wedding ideas from the last few months of hanging out on Instagram.

Because there's a cake that includes the BEST PART OF CEREAL. ??? by @alanajonesmann

Cakes that break the mold: Okay, sure; roses and gems make a cake real pretty, but also, Lucky Charms and emojis are valid love languages (and delicious).

Glowing rainbow wedding rings: Because now your relationship can literally light up your life (#dadjokes, we ain’t sorry). What else do you actually need? You’re wearing a rainbow on your finger.

Because a succulent belt is an actual thing that exists and it is beautiful. ???by @passionflowersue #putasucculentonit #succulents #weddingdetails

Succulent Accessories: Because your hair isn’t the only place for floral arrangements. Or succulent arrangements, as the case may be.

#Marriedaf: You did the damn thing, now shout it from the rooftops (or the front of your shirt). You can grab your own here, but pro-tip: The shirt runs about two sizes small. Try the tank top for a looser fit!

Double Duty Decor: First you take lots of cute photos in front of them, then you beat them beyond recognition and pillage the remains for candy! #winning

THAT OUTFIT COMBO THO. ? ? @alexkundy

BRIDAL PANTSUITS: We couldn’t pick just one. Which reminds us, is there such a thing as “too many outfit changes” at a wedding? Asking for a friend.
