Donut Walls, Cakes and Favors

I don’t know why I’m so in love with this donuts at weddings trend that started last year. But these little favor bags are perfect for your guests! These are from Ivory & Sage Co. Click the photo to visit their Etsy shop.

I first started mentioning these donut walls a year ago on my Instagram page. It’s just so cute! This Hole-y Matrimony donut stand below is one of my favorites. It’s by David’s Stuff Designs (Image links to Etsy the shop). It is a bit pricey at $100, but I love the design.

There are less expensive stands if you want to get in on this donut fun. This one is a really cute heart shaped stand for $33 from Show Me Display

Hooray Days also has a donut stand for $33.

Custom Groomsmen Proposals

I’m always on Etsy looking for wedding ideas and decor. I recently found an interesting and unique way for guys to ask their friends to be groomsmen.

Aside from the, “Suck a dick” salutation, (which I think is just a little over the top), these are pretty cool! I would probably get these if I was a man.

Etsy Finds for the Vintage Bride

Vintage weddings are extremely popular right now. You can find a host of websites that not only sell vintage gowns and accessories, but also give advice on creating the ultimate vintage wedding.

To look for inspiration, I find it extremely helpful to look up the weddings of actresses from the 1950s and 1960s. Audrey Hepburn, Diahann Carroll, Catherine Deneuve, Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren and Bridget Bardot all had amazing style. Just looking at their old photos can give you inspiration.

Etsy is one of my favorite places for Vintage accessories and gowns. There are so many beautiful pieces. Here are a few that I really like:

Dresses:

I absolutely love this gown. I like the lace, and the length. I think it’s a very classy and elegant bridal look.

Ideas for a Frosty Blue Winter Wonderland Wedding

Winter Wonderland weddings are fabulous! I loved this whole idea when I was looking for the perfect wedding theme for my own ceremony & reception.
Preston Bailey is awesome at whatever he puts together. (Check out his site: Preston Bailey).

In my opinion, the decor for a Frosty Winter Wonderland Wedding should feature sparkles, snowflakes and lights. The colors are usually white and a light shade of blue. White flowers look amazing in this setting since the rest of the decorations are so glitzy and shiny, the flowers don’t have to be full of color. Below is a collage of ideas I’ve put together. This is what I would include in a Winter Wonderland Wedding if I was using this theme. I would also include lots of winter trees, and maybe a faux fur shawl.
