Try these modern but cozy votive holders for a winter wedding! They look beautiful and sculptural when illuminated.
Cost: 50 cents a piece.
simple glass votive holders
yarn (we used cashmere which was just $2 for a roll at Michael’s)
double stick tape
1. Wrap double stick tape around votive holders. We used about 2 -3 rows per votive and spaced them out.
2. Stick the yarn vertically across the tape and then start wrapping it horizontally around the candle, leaving the long strand visible.
3. Keep wrapping yarn around the candle until it’s covered almost all the glass. The yarn shouldn’t be in rows, just wrap…
Yes, I’m back with more paper. You know by now how much I love it, right? And, now I’m introducing you to the newly launched WindWishes. While newly launched, these beautiful paper banners have been in the making for over 50 years. Master calligrapher Kaj Wyn Berry started creating these unique paper products in the early 1960’s after reading historical accounts of Asian railroad workers of the 1800’s writing their wishes for a better life on strips of paper and hanging them in beach pines along the Oregon Coast. They would make for beautiful as well as meaningful decor for any wedding.
They come in a multitude of different styles and you can even submit “Design-It-Yourself” custom orders using your own photos, design, and text.…
I love these Spring days with warm sun pouring through the windows, birds chirping, thoughts of easy, breezy days, and, of course, wedding season. It’s the beginning of a time so romantic and wistful. That’s precisely why San Francisco-based, Cherries Flowers, had me from the get go with their enchanting and artistic floral designs. At once refined and unaffected, their designs have an elegant yet sweetly approachable quality. One look through their portfolios and you’ll see that they’re not afraid of a little whimsy either. And, that combination is just the ticket for my kind of wedding.
I don’t know about you but since I’m on the computer all day long my handwriting has absolutely gone in the toilet. Even with my full concentration, notes come off looking like doctor’s prescriptions (Was that Martin or Marlena I’m supposed to call back?). Fortunately, Jen from Pretty Pen Jen hasn’t fallen prey to the bad handwriting epidemic; rather she’s here to save engaged couples from it.
Featuring a whole slew of different handwriting styles to choose from, Jen will handle lettering your invites, maps, signs, or, of course, your envelope addressing. All of her work is lettered directly on the stationary so you get a customized touch without the hand cramping.
And being a true pro, Jen has the whole…

Have you ever had the experience where you’re trying to buy shoes to match a dress and you are positive the shoes you have are the right shade of blue, only to get them home and realize that next to the dress your cute navy heels are suddenly an unwearable gray? Worst feeling ever.
And the one place you want to be absolutely positive this doesn’t happen is at your wedding. You want to be sure that the yellow your baker is talking about is the same yellow your florist is thinking is the same yellow as your bridesmaid dresses. And since we all know that our memories are not exactly infallible with colors…
The color gurus…
