DIY ANTHROPOLOGIE CONFETTI WEDDING | Planning a wedding when you’re addicted to Pinterest. … And a (completely unrelated) whore teacup FOR THE WIN!

Ok, crazy awesome wedding approaching at warp speed, however before we get into it, I must – MUST – relay a little anecdote from Thursday, if you don’t mind…

So, yesterday, while he was perusing the feedback on Rhi’s amazeballs guest post (y’all are so freakin’ supportive of each other!  it’s bonkers!), Honey happened to notice a link nestled inside one of our newer commentor’s (thanks for the awesome comment, Katy!) comments.  He was intrigued.  {Continue reading…}

RUSTIC DIY LOVE + Editor’s Notes on Relationships | Mason Jars Shall Live Forever + Could You *Imagine* Leaving Your Beloved Over Money? + Bambo’s Back.

Because “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant: Baby in My Sweatpants” seemed like a show unbefitting of dinnertime programming, we watched the only other option our trusty little Tivo suggestions folder offered us, which turned out to be a couple of episodes from MTV’s “True Life” series.  The series happens to be a tried and true favorite of mine, because it’s one of the few the only show on MTV that has real life relevance and teaches lessons.

So that said… today we’ve got a bit of a Smörgåsbord post for your faces.  Woot, go Friday afternoon posts!  Ok, first up, {Continue reading…}

DIY VINTAGE BICYCLE WEDDING | Cameron Leung Photography | Sometimes, weddings just rule. And then, a giveaway sneak peek happens! + Some Bambino face :)

As I sit here in the gorgeous afternoon sun, protected of course by window panes because I’m WORKING INDOORS, and tolerating the puffs of wind escaping Bambino’s behind as he slumbers on his day-pillow beneath my desk – puffs which, mind you, are as pungent as they are endless… I have this one thought floating around in my head, and it’s been there since Friday.  And, because I care about all of you so, so much, I feel the need to warn you guys about it. {Continue reading…}

CHIC DIY WEDDING IDEAS ON A BUDGET | XOXO & Flag Cake Topper Set! | by The Inspired Bride

Hello everyone!  My name is Maddy, and I write the wedding design blog the Inspired Bride.  I’m really happy to help out Alison while she’s out of town.

There’s been a lot of conversations lately about styled shoots, and what’s really feasible for brides.  I think as bloggers, it’s really easy for us to get caught up in “The Pretty”.  I don’t exclude myself from this.  As much as I love them and think they’re still completely relevant, styled shoots don’t have real world budgets and are often pretty tough to replicate {Continue reading…}

DIY WEDDING FUN + AN ODD NEW FAD | Vintage Spool Place Card DIY by Lauren + Alison *explores* the latest trend + a brand new Knotty Reader Challenge!

That title feels redundant.

Anyway… today, my friends, we have a twofer.  Part I = a super neat, super simple DIY project from our resident DIY expert, Lauren of Lauren Elise Crafted!  In Part II, yours truly will address that weird new fad thingie I mentioned on Twitter last night that I kinda sorta promised I’d address today on the blog and not chicken out on discussing, regardless of how aggressively incapable it is of being linked in any way to legit wedding content.  (Wait, did I say incapable?  BWAAAHAHAHAHAA!  Because I linked it.  See: The Knotty Challenge at the end of today’s post.  BOOYAHKASHA.)

Ok, BUT.  First things first: {Continue reading…}
