Today I have another amazing D.I.Y tutorial to share with all of you – Whimsical D.I.Y Twine Wrapped Letters! I was inspired to make this guide from all the amazing yarn wrapped letters I’ve been seeing – from adorning wishing well tables to being an adorable prop for engagement and wedding photos, it’s an understatement to say that over-sized letters are en vogue. But, I wanted to offer a new spin for all our fashionista brides out there, which is why I chose to adorn our letters with the punchy brightness of striped cotton baker’s twine! Simple to use and gorgeous to behold (if I do say so myself) this tutorial is easy enough for any bride and can be finished in a couple of hours (especially if your bridesmaids are there to help!).So grab your scissors, some hot glue and a little bit of twine, we’re getting ready to wrap!
Black and White – it’s a classic color palette but surprisingly diverse. Whether you love the look of black and white for a black tie affair or you want a funky mix of eclectic style that’s always in fashion, black and white is going to be your go-to color combination. I especially love these two colors for a wedding because it’s a great way to have guests participate in the theme as well – everyone has something spiffy in black or white (or both!) that they can wear and with all your guests dressed in theme, your wedding photos will never look more amazing! Plus, if you want a little more color in the mix, this palette easily adapts to bright pops of just about any color under the rainbow! That’s why today I’ve complied my favorite black and white wedding ideas, accessories and more to inspire you to create the flashy two-tone wedding you’ve always dreamed of! Enjoy!

In fact, the photos you see throughout this entire post are my first attempts at each garland (not to mention watercolor painting!). So get ready to be inspired and wow your wedding guests with these fanciful feather garlands! Continue on to READ MORE >
Steeped in tradition and persisting from ancient origins, the wedding veil is one of the most important pieces on a bride’s shopping list.

From lengths to layers and everything in between, shopping for a veil can be a harrowing experience. But, today we’re taking the mystery out of the veil buying process by sharing our fashion tips for veil lengths that’ll fit your style and work fantastically on your wedding day!
