wedding wednesday: groomsmen gifts

Happy Wednesday!

With the cold weather and engagement season in full swing I have been in total wedding mode lately- Pinterest, meetings and crafts have taken over my life but I have to say- I absolutely love it!

I’ve been chatting (and writing) a lot about entertaining, decor, recipes etc. And although men probably benefit of the recipes.. I don’t want them to feel left out! So today’s wedding wednesday is for the boys! (and maybe for the girls since you will probably be doing some of this shopping).

Groomsmen gifts can be a little tricky so I collected a few of my favourite ideas for you!

I love these personalized cufflinks- in my mind wedding party gifts are all about adding a personal touch and making those close to you feel extra special- this gift does that perfectly!

Boat shoes! What a great gift, these are the perfect show for everyman

Every man needs a great wedding/survival kit. A tie, some whiskey, a cigar and some steak spice is pretty much all they need!

I’ve got so many more, I may have to do part 2 🙂

happy planning! wishing you all a wonderful day

Although many couples are choosing cake alternatives such as pie bars, candy bars, cupcakes, macaroon towers etc. Cakes are still trending and these unique toppers are so much fun.

Whether it be theme related, monogrammed or florals, these modern, personal touches to the traditional dessert make them that much yummier!

thanks for stopping by, wishing you all a wonderful day!

silver & gold

Silver or Gold?

I often tend to accessorize or decorate with silver as my metallic. I like the look of it and I think look better on me style-wise. I am often asked if the two can go together and I definitely think they can!

I was asked this question again recently and I was inspired to share this trend with all of you.

Here’s some inspiration for mixing silver & gold

champagne

Happy Friday Everyone!

Life has been crazy busy this week- December is just around the corner and everyone is starting to prepare for the holidays.

In regards to weddings and events-I have been seeing a comeback for champagne and gold- it’s a nice alternative to the burlap, rustic look that is so popular right now.

I was part of the set up for a wedding in August that has this color palette- it was such a romantic look!

this look can be dressed up or dressed down- i love that!

Adding some black accents to make it just a little but sharper- perfect for the winter season.

balloons

Today’s post is all about using a classic party item to dress up your wedding in a fun way!

The trend is balloons. Have you guys noticed how many people are incorporating this birthday party staple into their wedding decor? I think I like it. It has that familiarity, casualness and playfulness I would want at my wedding.

Interesting in using balloons for your weddings? Here’s some inspiration to do it differently:
