Celebrity Weddings: Wedding Favor Notepads

For brides on a budget personalized notepads are the way to go! Everyone can use a notepad and it’s not a big clunky favor that gets in the way of all your other fabulous wedding décor!

Everyone’s favorite reality show couple Trista and Ryan Sutter gave out notepads at their weddings with their picture and the word “dream” pressed into the cover.

To do your own version of this celebrity wedding favor check out American Bridal's Fall for Love Personalized Notebooks for the budget friendly price of $2.20 for 24 notepads!

Celebrity Weddings: Cupcake Boxes

If you have a big sweet tooth, but don’t want something cliché like personalized candies as wedding favors, give out boxes of cupcakes like Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom did at their glam wedding.

These cupcake boxes from American Bridal are cute, simple and a complete bargain, only $8.95 for a pack of six cupcake boxes!

You can personalize this favor either with custom monogrammed ribbon or even with a decoration on the cupcake. Another reason we love this idea is because it’s like taking a little bit of the wedding home with you!

And really, who doesn't love cake for breakfast?

Celebrity Weddings:Wedding Favors

Don't we all wish we could have the budget of a celebrity, especially when it comes to planning a wedding?!

One of the many extravagant expenses of celebrity weddings are all the fancy wedding favors, like Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban who handed out engraved Tiffany & Co. clocks to their guests. Not exactly cheap.

Here's a look-alike wedding favor from American Bridal that's a complete bargain so you can have a celebrity wedding too!

American Bridal Classic Optical Crystal Desk Clock: $27.95
Tiffany & Co. clock: $2,100

Gallery Leather Album

The Leather Gallery Photo Albums from Gallery Leather are beautiful for wedding photos! They sent us some albums so that we could check out the quality, and see if it was something we'd like to use for our images. And really, It's so easy to slide in all your photos and put a handwritten caption underneath using the cards in the back of the album.

I can't wait to sneak in all of our family images and keep them for our families to look though over the years. I couldn't think of a better way to cherish all of those images you've been hanging on to.

The pages are also acid-free, so they will keep your pictures safe through the years.

Gallery Leather's  travel leather photo album comes with the option of a window so you can personalize your album, which makes for a great gift to the in-laws or parents!

Gallery Leather sent the leather gallery photo album and leather travel photo album with window for us to review free of compensation. We only review the most awesometastic things!

Party Ideas: Buffet

We were trying to think of a fun, modern, and gardeny way to jazz up a table at an outdoor rehearsal dinner or brunch, and found this!

What a cool way to brighten up a party buffet table instead of using a tablecloth! Simple and fresh, can't go wrong with that kind of decor.

What type of flowers would you use in this display?

Love it? Hate it? We want to know!

Southern Flair: Mason Jars

We love Mason Jars! We love them hanging, standing, and filled with jam! (and who has two thumbs and loves jam... this girl!)

It's no secret that Mason jars are the biggest wedding trend right now, but they can be used in so many different and pretty ways, who cares if it's trendy?

What are some other awesometastic ways you've seen mason jars used?

Weddings Illustrated Magazine

Have you seen the Spring/Summer issue of Weddings Illustrated lately?

It's, in three words, to die for!

The wedding photography, the dresses, the rings, the details, it was all just fantastical!

One of my favorite features was "Southern Charm" on page 32, so many creative and personal spins on classic southern traditions. And the "Garden Parties" feature had "Perfect Florida Wedding!" written all over it!

If you see this magazine at your local bookstore, we recommend grabbing a copy and a cup of coffee and spending some time pouring over the pages.

May Day Pole

Happy May Day!

Thank you Martha for the image

We did a wedding several years ago, where the bride had a May Day Pole, and all of the children gathered around and danced with the long ribbons around the pole, it was so sweet and a great way to honor the traditions of our families in the South.
