You definitely want to stay away from being too literal – do NOT use dots in every element of your wedding. Just pick a couple of details, like your stationery and ring pillow, or incorporate them in your decor, the groomsmen ties, and your shoes. They are a fun way to lighten things up and add a bit of whimsy to your day.
I’ve seen some great Oscar party ideas on the blog circuit recently, and I’m passing them along here hoping someone will use them and throw a fun party. My husband and I take watching the Oscars very seriously…we have a ballot competition, make treats, and have seen most (me) or all (him) of the nominated films. But this year I’ll be watching the Oscars alone, because husband is working at the Governor’s Ball after the Oscars and leaving me to compete with myself. “No I don’t mind watching the Oscars alone while you’re hob-nobbing with the Oscar attendees at the most glamorous party of the year…have fun!”
There are so many personal and meaningful ways to do the “Something Old, Something New” tradition in your wedding. But I have to admit that my favorite is “something blue,” which is why I had five somethings blue!
My husband and I watched the movie Bright Star over the weekend, and in addition to being a well told, acted, and directed film (it tells the true story of the three-year romance between poet John Keats and Fanny Brawne), it was a beautiful visual inspiration. Every scene, whether shot in a field of wildflowers or set in an English kitchen, was shot so beautifully. Everything was just so pretty.
Living in So Cal, succulents have become a staple in my attempts at “gardening” (a.k.a. two small window boxes). They are easy to take care of and require little maintenance or water, and are always visually pleasing.
Succulents are being seen more and more in weddings and from these photos it is easy to see why.
