On your wedding day your groom will be excited, anxious, and probably nervous. Ease his worries and make him remember everything he loves about you by sending him a little present on your wedding morning.

Warm up his cold feel with a stylish pair of socks that will go perfectly with his tuxedo.

Perfect for the musically inclined groom, personalize a guitar pick as an aid in playing or  even a key chain.

Destination weddings remain extremely popular because they are exotic and provide a vacation for the newlyweds as well as the guests. The bride and groom can choose their favorite location, the one that gives them the most joy and comfort, to marry the love of their life. They also give insight to the guests as to their style, personality, and preferences by letting them see their preferred place of peace.

Scenery is one of the main positives to having a destination wedding. You get something that easily sets the mood and tone of the wedding that is impossible to get in your own home town and that can make or break your wedding.

Most destination weddings take the guests to a tropical paradise complete with white sand beaches, crystal blue water, and mini umbrellas in every drink.

Don’t feel like you have to stick with the setting of a beach for your destination wedding. If you and your significant other are more interested in other landscapes embrace that instead. It’s your wedding so make it what you love.

One thing to take into consideration is how much your guests have gone through in order to attend your destination wedding. Travel costs, hotels, and even passports costs may be present and they will add up fast to your guests. Show your appreciation of their commitment to be there on your special day with Welcome Bags complete with things they may need in this faraway place.

Because the cost can be great to your guests, it is often recommended to have only the most important people attending your wedding. If you aren’t willing to make the effort to go to a coworker’s destination wedding they probably feel the same way so a wedding announcement may be a better route.

A destination wedding is a great opportunity to have fun with your dress. A shorter dress can be more appropriate than a bigger ballgown in this case so have fun with it. 


The lovely ladies you chose to be your bridesmaids are the girls that have always been by your side. You want to make sure you have the perfect photo with them on your special day that shows their personality and how much they mean to you.

This photo is a clear representation of the bridesmaids always having the bride’s back, during good times and bad. The black and white style reflect on the timeless aspect of each friendship.

This is such a cute photo for an outdoor wedding or even just a summer event.

Showing off the bridesmaid’s dresses, shoes, and personalities are definitely a must in any wedding photo shoot.

Another great idea is to remember how the friendship between the bride and her girls started, or how long the they have been friends.

A little more chic and serious, a shoot like this can be used to intensify the pictures and give them a dramatic edge.

This photo shows how comfortable all the girls are together, which is really important as well. Some of these friendships will last a lifetime and it’s important to remember that.


While many brides pine and worry about small details on the front of their dress they forget about the world of extravagant possibilities that they could house on the back of the dress as well. It is more difficult to find a dress with a detailed back but if you are getting your dress made I would most definitely give thought to adorning the back as well. Everyone will be looking at your back during the ceremony so why not give them something beautiful to envy.

The beads and jewels in this dress are so elegant because it almost looks like they are attached to the bride herself, reflecting her beauty, as opposed to part of her dress.

A style like this may be more available and easier to find than the previous while still reflecting the brides beauty and grace.

A simple cut like this can still awe the guests and show the natural beauty of the bride.

This beautiful beading right down the center of the bride’s back provides a sophistication that seems to be unmatched. 

Wedding Favors


It may be difficult to choose a wedding favor that your guests will be excited about receiving but it can definitely be done. Weather it’s delicious, practical, or decorative you can choose an option that everyone will love.

Fresh and edible wedding favors are exploding on the wedding scene and they are very popular among guests. Many times food is preferred over a knick-knack because the guests don’t need extra clutter on their shelves despite its sentimental meaning.

A plant or seeds can be a great wedding favor. I love the idea of planting strawberries because it’s practical and the couple will be thought of whenever their wedding guests enjoy the fruits of the plant.

A tote bag can be a great favor but maybe for a small wedding. It could get expensive quick. The guest can use this bag in any way they need it; a beach bag, reusable shopping bag, overnight bag, or whatever else they want.

I love the display of these wedding favors. You could fill the jars with jam, jelly, candles, or candies. They look homemade which shows the guest how much you appreciate them helping you and your significant other celebrate your love.

This is definitely a practical wedding favor with a cute little slogan to remind the guests that the love of the newlyweds started with just a spark.


The groom does not have as many difficult decisions regarding his outfit as the bride but that doesn’t mean he has to wear a cookie cutter outfit. The boutonniere is a great opportunity to add a creative and personal touch to the grooms wardrobe while staying uniform and elegant. 

ImageThis boutonniere option carries a lot of symbolism as the groom carries the key to the brides heart. If you want to go with something like this you can even have a lock attached to the brides bouquet to further complete the sentiment. 

 

ImageYou can have a boutonniere that has a floral essence without directly using flowers. A great idea if the groom has allergies or you want a more masculine, stylish boutonniere.

When very important people cannot be at the wedding because they are departed many times you want to have some sort of token of theirs to remind you they are in attendance even if you don’t see them. This can be that token. Made out of a favorite shirt, tie, dress, or any other cloth you can ensure that your loved one is close to your heart on this important day. 

 

ImageBroaches are becoming a popular boutonniere choice of many men because of their elegance, simplicity, and versatility.

A very creative and personal approach to the boutonniere is to hand make a token symbolizing a favorite activity of the groom.

Don’t be afraid of color when choosing or designing a boutonniere. It is only a small aspect of the grooms wardrobe so it won’t be too distracting to have a bold trinket on his lapel. 

 

 

 


Sometimes the bride has difficulty deciding on how to make her wedding ceremony and reception a little more vibrant. With the most popular color schemes for weddings being soft tones it can be a great idea to insert some small pops of color to help the guests remember what a joyous and happy time this is.

Giving your bridesmaids bright shoes can be great to distinguish them from the bride especially if they are wearing a lighter color similar to the bride’s dress.

By having the majority of your cake a shade of white with one layer and accent color, and even a different texture like the one in this picture, you will have all your guests flocking to the cake table to check out the dessert.

A statement necklace, or bracelet, can be the perfect accessory that guarantees all eyes are drawn to the bride.

Make sure the groom gets some attention too with a fun patterned tie.

Accentuate your colors in photos by using this simple technique. This would be a great ‘Thank You’ note image.

A very creative way to bring color to your wedding is with customized seat cushions. I love this because it will inspire your guests to have a blast at the reception and dance the night away.
