9 Best Wedding Ideas We’ve Seen on Instagram This Year (So Far)

All black everything and Drake on cake...

Instagram is fantastic, but also there’re a LOT of terrible ideas on it. It’s not really Pinterest yet… all mason jars and styled shoots, but man. There’re over a million photos hash-tagged under wedding ideas. So instead of making y’all go through them, I’ve spent an absurd amount of time trolling the insta-webs and pulled the best of them into the official APW feed. And of those? There’re a few ideas that really stand out. Here’re my favorites of 2016 so far:

crystal cake

Crystal cakes: I love crystals. And I love cakes. So why not combine them for a pretty shiny woo fest that is also delicious? BONUS: the top one is actually pretty damn affordable if you’re in the Bay Area. (Header: Photo by Corbin Gurkin, cake by Sainte G. Cake Company | Above: Cake by Alana Jones-Mann)

BEsties LINGERIE Party: Hanging with your wedding party could totally be an excuse to wear those impractical fancy lacy things. We have no real idea what’s going on in the first picture, but we want in.

Drake on Cake: Why not have your favorite rap lyrics in pink frosting? Obviously, there’re lots of lines that would do well. There’s always the “If you had a twin, I would still choose you.” (Cake by Drake on Cake)

WINTER WEDDINGS. No longer are destination weddings always about sand and sunshine. Think: Iceland and mountains. (First: Dress by Daalarna Couture, Image by Meghan Kay Sadler | Second: Image by Christina Karst)

Salt and pepper diamonds. Clear, perfect, diamonds are cool, but I have a soft spot for something a little more flawed. The symbolism seems just right. (Ring by Digby & Iona)
