We're going to LA on Saturday and we'll come back with some huge ideas. And the whole wedding completely planned out, of course.

invite inspiration 3

I don't so much want to give small packages of seeds to our guests, but I do like the idea of using white ink on color for our invitations. I was also thinking it could be cool to hand paint our envelopes to keep the price down. This image came from once wed.

Introducing the cutest baby ever!!!

I am 100% positive that any nerves or overwhelming emotions will be calmed for everyone at the wedding when the cutest ring bearer to ever exist walks down the aisle. My sister had amazing timing ... he'll be walking this spring!

He is the cutest baby ever, don't you think!!!

First, I love the casual beach setting you will see in the rest of these pictures by Leo Patrone. But even more, how cool is that camera that he used? It's a Holga which uses film and has a plastic lens. That's about the extent of my knowledge about it. I'd love to have one of those around at our wedding just to get some great artistic photos. It could be just so much better than the bridesmaids in a row hold up your matching flowers tilt your head to the left for 1/2 an hour photography.

new idea for guest "book"

I love this idea from today's "real wedding" at snippet and ink. We can have guests write on a chalkboard just like they did and just set up a camera for easy and fun pics. I think a digital camera will be cheaper than polaroids even though they are super cool

More on the garland

This image from lobster and swan makes me want to make our garland from any spare fabric we have from our DIY projects. I think patterns and random color combos will fit our other decorations, especially the little birds (which I will share more about later).

Two weddings I love

Nick's friend Donia's wedding was posted on spippet and ink. They were on a pretty low budget and kept things very low key. We'll have less people, a smaller budget, and I won't be playing the piano unfortunately. Dave & Donia Wedding link.

I found this wedding via cup of jo, but here's the link to more pictures and details on once wed. We won't be having a potluck, but we will be getting married under a big tree. I love that their guests stood in a half circle around them and that their friend married them. Our friend James will marry us-three cheers for James!

Feathers and more

Check out the selection of feathers and flowers at Nicholas Kniel! This could be great for the boutonnieres and head pieces.
