Trend Tuesday {Figgie Shoes}

2014 is going to be all about personalized, hand-crafted wedding details! From hand-calligraphed invitations, to hand-painted wedding cakes – its all about making little works of art… and your wedding shoes are no exception! For the bride who wants personal artsy details, let me introduce you to your new best friend, Figgie Shoes.

I could spend hours going through their website gallery, which features every kind of shoe you can think of! They have glamourous parisian-style shoes with bling, and relaxed Toms painted with quirky details unique to the bride and groom. So sit back, grab a glass of wine, and spend the next few minutes (or hours) taking a look at these gorgeous works of art!

Trend Tuesday: Painted Wedding Cakes

Today, I searched pinterest for “Painted Wedding Cakes” and there went my entire morning! These are totally unique works of edible art that can be anything you want them to be! I found some with illustrations of couples, some with the wedding vows written in beautiful calligraphy, and others that were just flat out gorgeous masterpieces. Here is just a small sampling of my favorites. Enjoy!

Brandy + Chad {September 1, 2013}

There are so many things to love about Brandy and Chad’s wedding at the beautiful and rustic Hope Glen Farm! We’re swooning over all of the DIY details like the framed chalkboards, paper flowers, pennant banners, distressed doors, mason jar escort cards, license plate table numbers… I could go on! The simple and pretty decor played in perfectly with the laid-back feel of the wedding, complete with bags, croquet, and tippy cup! The talented Miss Jess Croshow did an absolutely amazing job capturing every detail!

Trend Tuesday: Brides Throwing Cats

This is probably the weirdest Trend Tuesday post we have ever done…

The latest internet meme has taken the bridal world by storm. Brides and their photographers are photoshopping their bouquet toss photos and replacing the flowers with images of flying cats. To quote the site, it’s a simple equation (Bride – Bouquet + Cat) * Photoshop = Brides Throwing Cats. It also emphasizes that all of the images are fake, and that they do not encourage actually throwing a cat at your wedding.

Here are a few of our favorites.

Trend Tuesday: Sweet Succulents

Succulents are simple, inexpensive, and oh-so pretty! Best of all, they’re versatile! They can easily be incorporated into your wedding look whether you’re going for a modern, classic, rustic, vintage, elegant, bohemian… anything! We’ve been seeing these little beauties everywhere and we absolutely love these gorgeous plants. Their thick, water-filled petals come in so many beautiful colors that can work with any pallet. On top of that, succulents can live for several days without water, which makes them the perfect plant for the DIY bride. Here is a tutorial on making your own succulent wedding bouquet from She Knows. When you’re done with your wedding day succulents, these tough little guys can even be replanted to decorate your home!
