12 days of christmas: 6 geese a laying

I’ve been itching to share an Eastern European wedding inspiration board with you for sometime now and ‘geese-a-laying’ seems like the perfect opportunity! I love the Polish and Russian folkish elements and the array of colors – which is actually pretty common for a wedding in that part of the world. Out with the white […]

lego wedding

A lego inspired wedding is a fun and cute way to tie the knot. I wouldn’t recommend going totally overboard (as in constructing an arch to get married under out of legos), but lego themed touches here and there like on your wedding invitations, the groom and groomsmen’s boutonnieres, and atop the cake are darling. […]

rustic rainbow

It’s been kind of gray and rainy here in Honolulu lately (I know right!? weird.) The plus side to that though is that it FINALLY feels like the holidays are here. With all the gray skies I figured it was time for another rainbow wedding. Rainbows symbolize good luck, fortune, and hope – aka: the […]

needy for neon

Neon is a bright and fun addition to any wedding palette. It can be fresh and modern, or have a 1980s twist, depending on how you use it. Either way, give your bridesmaids a neon gift they won’t forget: 1. orange ombre beaded necklace 2. neon arrows print poster 3. neon pink envelope clutch 4. gray pillow 5. […]

white and rainbow

Rainbow weddings scream ‘celebrate!’ and frankly, that’s just what a wedding should be. There is another reason to celebrate and that’s for the launch of Wed Over Heels, the lovely new social site co-founded by Bean Benson (< don’t you just LOVE her name?) Wed Over Heels is an amazing place where happily engaged couples […]

You may have noticed the sparkling new beauty vendor in The Shop – étoile polish. Erin, the mastermind behind this awesome line of nail polishes, had this to say on her blog: “I recently got engaged and feel blessed to have the chance to marry the person I love – who happens to be a […]

color blocked

Color blocking is one of those trends that seems trendy just about all the time, especially in the fashion world. This bright and fun look is seeping its way into weddings and I’m so happy for it! The color blocked look is fresh, fun, young, and easy to love. Carry your color blocked wedding theme […]

the 1980s

A 1980s themed wedding is sort of the ultimate in wedding themes. I mean, who hasn’t been to an ’80s’ party before? There is so much to love (and miss) about the 80s. If you’re going to be a retro 80s bride, check out these fabulous bouquets from Floricultcha. They don’t come more retro than […]

vintage vegas (+ real engagement)

Rachel is one of those girls who you had a couple classes with in college, and you always got along with her great, but she was never really part of your inner circle, nor you of hers, and so you never hung out as much as you should have. Then life goes on, you graduate […]

vintage rainbow wedding

It’s no secret that I love a good rainbow wedding and the vintage look and feel – so why not combine the two? Several sources have claimed that rainbow weddings are going to be the hot trend for 2013 – it’s bold, it’s vibrant, and it looks like something a 9 year old would dream […]

bhldn

For those of you out there who are Anthropologie fans you’ve probably heard about their parent company’s bridal line BHLDN (pronounced ‘beholden’). The initial line premiered online on Valentines Day in 2011, and I’ve been a fan ever since. So frankly, it’s about time I dedicated a post to this lovely store. All of the […]
