Flower Shower

Flowers are super important in both the wedding and reception ceremonies. And I, personally, want a flower-full ceremony. However, flowers are usually a very expensive portion of the wedding budget, so to save money and add a personalized touch (I just love those!) I plan to make many of my own flowers, and grow many more.

First, here's a handy dandy guide to choosing your wedding flowers.

After you choose your flowers, you will want to know when to plant them and where. Here's another handy guide.

After you choose the flowers you want to plant, you can choose the flowers that you want to make, regardless of blooming season!

There are many materials that you can use to make flowers. These are some of my favorite flowers made of ribbon.

Fabric is perfect for some flowers

Paper is a never ending flower material.

And tissue paper was made for flowers.

There is a host of other flower varieties that you can find instructions for. Also if you want to incorporate your favorite flower into the food, there are many different pictorial instructions for that as well. Wishing you a flowery ever after!

Ring Shots

There are so many artful ways to display the beauty of his and her rings. Other than showcasing them on fingers, photographers can capture their personalities and yours with a variety of props.

I love the natural look of rings with flowers, and this is a great way to arrange the shot.

You could also use sticks and other outdoorsy items as props.

For a beach themed wedding, there is an array of ocean props to use alongside your rings.


Photographers can also pose your ring with your shoes, and I really love that this is a silhouette shot.

Or you can incorporate other pieces of your wedding attire.


For other book lovers like me, you can capture your little beauties inside the pages of a favorite book

Or you can show your love of music by displaying your treasures with your favorite instrument.


What are some of your favorite items that you can photograph with your little beauties? May you have a snappily ever after!

Nifty Nails

To pull the look together, one should never forget the nails. While there is plenty respect in sticking with a simple, clean French manicure (as pictured below) there are many unique ways to add personality to your finger tips.

One of my favorite options is showcasing elaborate pictures on your tiny little finger canvases.


For less than a picture, but more than a basic manicure, you could spring (haha!) for one of these fun springy color options.


...Or two. You could choose one of these fun combos, or you could display a mix of your two favorite wedding color combinations.

Some other fun ways to add flare are with sparkles or a matte polish...or both.

Whichever option you choose, I know you will be a beautiful bride. Wishing you a happily ever after!

To Top It All Off

Cake toppers often enhance the look of the cake and also serve to add a pop of the couple's personality.

Some stay traditional with the well behaved bride and groom figurines.

Others like meaningful words written as for royalty.

I personally, like the pretty wire letters.

Or even better, little wire people.

And when you start looking at the animals there are a lot of cute options. I like the idea of love birds.

But his favorites, on the other hand, usually revolve around whales. Like these belugas.

Or these blue whales.

And he really likes these orcas (killer whales).

And as a side note. He also has a fetish for these painted dinos.

There are so many different cake toppers to choose from, giving every couple the opportunity to find the perfect set for them - to top it all off! Wishing you a whale of a good time!
