.....I mean Baby's.....Breath!! As in flowers.....and you know I love me some flowers! I have always loved baby's breath, but there was a time when I saw it as cheap filler for a beautiful flower arrangement and didn't use it much anymore in the floral work I did.

But....I was just over at one of my favorite wedding blogs to stalk, Aylee Bits, and saw the most amazing compilation of photos of weddings where they used only baby's breath! It is amazing....see: Not only is it very inexpensive, but it is very easy to work with! It's also so light and airy and just makes a beautiful statement. Personally, I feel that if you're going to use baby's breath....use lots of it. Huge arrangements....roping....I love the flower girl's headpiece and I love the wreaths! Check out the gorgeous centerpieces in the picture below....bottom, center. Aren't they fabulous!I even like the bunches of baby's breath mixed in with other white flowers, like below:

I did a little more "blog stalking" and found the fabulous photo below at WeddingBee.com, which I abosolutely LOVE to follow. It's a blog with a group of brides past and brides to be....you get to follow their road to the altar....at the altar....and past the altar. They lean on each other for help, advice and ideas to make their wedding special. Anyway, check out this pic:You can actually see more of this beautiful, over the top wedding at David Monn's website here.

So, if you're on a tight budget, or just want to make a huge impact with flowers, think babies....I mean baby's....breath!

You're gonna love this!

I don't post here often, but when I saw this I knew I had to post about it! What a creative and unique way to keep your wedding party and family informed about the events surrounding your wedding!Folded it is about the size of a business card, so it can be conveniently tucked into your wallet. I love checking out the Weddingbee website. All of the brides to be have such great ideas! And I love see the results of their efforts after they're married!

Dare to be different.....dare to be YOU!

As you all know, I'm all about weddings and I just love to see what fabulous, creative and new ideas others come up with to make their weddings special. HOW I wish I had gotten married during a time when it was all about having a wedding that is an "event"....one that everyone talks about for years to come....and one that completely reflects the couples style and personality. I'm actually amazed at how many "grooms" are actually getting involved in the wedding planning process and putting their "mark" on the day!
I just love THIS wedding.....CLICK HERE.
I love her shoes....I love her gown.......I love her headpiece.....I love the guys ties....I love the table cards....I love the centerpieces.....I love, love, love the photo booth idea they came up with.....not a real fan of the cupcakes versus a wedding cake, so their cake and cupcake combo was a compromise (I'd still have to have a multi tiered cake)...I love their venue....I love, love, love, love their photographer....and I love them! What a great couple!

I just HAD to post these.........

I don't really consider myself a "shoe" person, although I do understand that the shoes can make or break the most fabulous outfit. I've seen this style of shoe....I think in magazines. I think they are very fashion forward, but of course not shoes I could wear....maybe years ago!
BUT....as you all may know, I'm a sucker for a great DIY project and I think this one is fabulous! So I'm sharing.....here's the link to this brilliant project...check it out!

Let there be light.....

....and let it shine on you! I just love this idea I found while "blog stalking" at this blog. They even offer the "how to" for them! I don't know if I'd want pictures of myself on every one of my tables, but I think it's a great idea to have them on the guest book table, at the entrance, or the cake table.....or just in random places throughout your venue.
Aren't they great!

This is just the CUTEST idea!!!!

I know.....I really do not have the time to be surfing wedding blogs and websites, but every now and then, I just can't resist taking a break to do just that. AND look what I found!! This is the greatest idea for the groom I've seen in a looong time. In fact, it is actually quite rare that you see great ideas of things to help include the groom into the wedding event. I adore this! You buy the socks of your choice, then go to this website (Tie That Binds) and download the label for $7.....unlimited prints! Don't you just love this? I found a different version (this is where I saw it first) at the Style Me Pretty blog....I love that blog! She shows you exactly how to put it all together....

I think it would be so cool to pick out really unique socks......for the wedding day!

Great Guestbook Idea!

It's all in the details.....and this is one that I am just soooo excited about! I watched the newest Martha Stewart Weddings show, which featured one of her assistants, Liesel Menning. It was an eco-friendly wedding in Franklin, Tennessee and I just loved all of the elements! But the one thing I loved MOST was her guest book quilt! What a fabulous, fabulous idea.....and one I'm hoping I can convince Shelby to do for her wedding!!! (What do you think, Shelby???)

They made a large square in the center with the bride's and groom's initials and wedding date. Then they had smaller squares that guests could personalize with permanent markers. Later they were sewn into a quilt!!!

Isn't this the most fabulous idea??? I mean WHO pulls out their guest book to look at the written names of who was there.....we KNOW who was there! I love this more personal type of guest book...one where guests can leave their sentiments....and with the quilt you'll be reminded on every cold night just who was there and how much they love you!

One of Shelby's closest friends, Lindsey, got married last April and I made a Wishing Tree for her....I just loved the idea and it looked beautiful in the room. And now she has all of these beautiful sentiments from everyone who was there with her and Darren on their special day. That is definitely more special than a guest book with a bunch of signatures!
