{ 15 FAB and FUN WAYS to PERSONALIZE your ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS }

Engagement photos! It’s “normally” your first photo shoot as a couple and is a great way to show the personality and love you share as a pair. I love seeing photographs of people in love and, even better, I love seeing the personality of the couple shining through as well! So, in your photographs don’t be afraid to step outside the box, show off your fashion style instead of toning it down, bring props of things that make you guys you, go places you love, and do things that make you happy! Here’s a few photos that are great examples of sharing love and personality!

Love and motorcycles…goes together nicely doesn’t it!

{ FALL in LOVE with the TREATS of FALL }

Visuelle

May I start by saying to my fellow northerners…happy fall wedding season friends! (And to my not-so-notherner readers…I don’t mean to leave you out!!! If it makes you feel any better…we promise to be very jealous of your warmer weather ways in a few short months!) The joy and appreciation for the change of seasons is what keeps “most” of us northerners here, instead of those nice warm Florida Keys! Once you’ve grown up here, you can’t help but love that first crisp fall day, the first snow, the first breezes of spring, AND SUMMER…ohhhh summer…we practically hold out breath to make it last longer! The moral of the story is there are joys and treasures we adore about each time of year; and the comforts of those seasons are special to add into the details of your love day. Fall harvest time gets us enjoying an array of treats and they’re great way to incorporate the season into your day! Here’s a few idears my FALL loving FRIENDS! :)

 

Okay…this cake or cupcake flavor just sounds DELICIOUS! Pumpkin spice with caramel cream cheese frosting…Oh…MY…YUM!

8eefe5643719a02edc644467820818ce

 

 

Caramel apples…AND PRETTY caramel apples at that! What guest wouldn’t love one of these as a favor!

ba41b47e7394830834fc3c934a29b9c4 53822184c6eafcb599db70670bb39bbb

 

 

 

Okay…so for some reason I always incorporate milk and cookies as a fall thing…school starting-kinda treat! I think this suits probably any season…but how delighted as a guest would you be to see these little treats coming around for a late night treat!

 

3555fba4df4ad07121085b0690ce4be3

 

 

The cuteness of a mini pie is unbearable! How adorbs and delicious do these things look!

e64c35e4ced894fdc0d5266682bf7e7d

 

Bite size pumpkin pies…I may be in heaven!

b4c4b5988df05c0967da14ed305964ec

 

 

Have you seen these things?! They call them PIE POPS…I’ve decided I HEART PIE POPS before even taste testing! Cuteness on a stick!

0877e67a9cdccad57b24a42778a2924c

 

 

Caramel corn = HAPPINESS

9852acf6ac83a43697086baf7ab309e0

 

 

Or if you want more options for the snack happiness of your guests…how about this! EVERYBODY loves popcorn…I “think” it’s a FACT?! :)

 

970406771918fd3c9513930b6f18cdc9

259f9f0e422089b0462845341894a65b

 

 

Okay and finally, one of my FAVORITE cold weather party ideas!  A HOT COCOA BAR! UMMMM…YES PLEASE! And let’s not be bias…how bout a HOT BAR?! Cocoa, coffee, and cider with all the fixings and additives (chocolate, white chocolate, peppermint, caramel, marshmallows, maybe a little something-something for the guests over 21) to warm those sweet little guests of yours up in a hot minute!

{ It’s a great day for a PLAID wedding }

Visuelle

 

Maybe it’s my Wisconsin upbringing, but a girl must admit, I LOVE ME a GOOD PLAID! Fall is upon us, it’s a great time of year for changes in home decor and wardrobes, and let me tell you, it makes me downright GIDDY! You’re darn tooting, I’ll be sporting a flannel tunic with my leggings and riding boots this fall and probably drinking pumpkin spice coffee while doing so, that’s just how us northerners do; we have to cozy ourselves up for the pending freeze.  Let’s get talking about fall and winter weddings! WHOOT! There’s so many elements to add that warm and cozy feeling to your chilly/ish weather wedding; candlelight, lit fireplaces, warm lighting, hot drinks, comfort food, and PLAID! Another highlight is that, “Baby it’s cold outside” feeling adds a whole other layer of romance. Something about being cooped up in a cabin, in the snow, staying warm by a fire; is romantic, right?! I think so!  So, how about plaid in a wedding?! It can be done! It can definitely be done for a rustic themed wedding, but can also be done more subdued for an elegant look, as well! Burberry has an awesome plaid we all know for a reason, it classic, and AWESOME!  ANYWHO, here’s a couple of ways to incorporate a little plaid in your love day! So, to get you feeling cozy on this ALMOST fall day…GRAB your coffee and enjoy a little plaid wedding inspiration!

 

Let’s start with engagement photos,  fall is great time for them! Plus, who doesn’t love a Merry Christmas and Save the Date card!

ec201e748905dcfe504126aff385f9a2

 

 

Speaking of different plaid color schemes! Here’s a few! AND how great would all these be for guests for an outdoor fall wedding OR cover ups for the bride and bridesmaids! Could be awesome…just saying… :)

9d7c56da3c16b60631e119e8d85caa0c

 

 

Ohhh girl, get yourself some plaid shoes for under that white dress! How cool are these! AND what a fun surprise when you lift up that dress!

This plaid throw is adding a great back drop for the details of your day.

Plaid table runners! I think YES!

For the fellas, this will help “TIE” in your inspiration… :)

Or, for a more relaxed, outdoor wedding, the guys could wear something like this?!

NOW, here’s a look that, I must admit, I’m KIND OF in love with! Okay, so AFTER the I dos, a bride just might need a way to warm up, accessorize, or maybe just add to the theme of her day! Check out this neat idea…it’s kind of ADORBS!

Another look, plus LOVE this hair!

{ EAT YOUR CAKE NAKED } ten pretty naked cakes

 

There’s A LOT of beautiful wedding cakes out there these days and the options seem endless to get delicious flavors as well as stunning visual cakes to top it off! Fondant covered cakes have made many bridal beauties elegant cake dreams come true, allowing sleek lines and details not able to be performed before the fondant hey day! However, as ALWAYS, just like I love myself many a fancy style white dress; I am a LOVER of all things cake as well! Butter cream covered, fluffily frosted, cupcakes pretties, cake pop cuties, fondant beauties, and NOW the trend of the NAKED CAKE! One thing I am definitive over is the importance of having a wedding cake. I heart traditions; they help signify special moments, so cut a cake gosh darnit and shove it OR nicely put it in each others’ cute faces and make that moment memorable! And, if you don’t…I’ll never know the difference so don’t worry about it! :) Okay…now back to cake styles,  if you’re looking for cake ideas and want something new and different OR maybe just don’t love tons of frosting…here are ideas you’ll love! Like I said…eat your cake…NAKED!

I love the way this one is iced!

{ Crown Yourself with Flowers }

Apologies my friends! Was out of town with the family yesterday and the time and internet signals seemed to slip away on me! Hopefully, I didn’t leave you in too much suspense for your Friday Fashion and Trend Report! :) Anywho, onto the pretties! So, I must admit I was inspired for this blog post from Visielle Productions Summer Bridal Show. The floral crowns were shown beautifully by some of the floral vendors, as well as, incorporated into some if the decor through out the show. And I LOVED them! What a great alternative for the brides who aren’t all about blingy tiaras or maybe you are about blingy tiaras, but a more natural look suits your dress, theme, or location. The moral of the story is, here’s another way to beautify and create a look that relays you and your style. Here are some elegant, romantic, and downright stunning ways to add a little floral to your crown!

 

Is this one fairytale-esque or what! Beautiful!

{ Wedding Dresses with BEAUTIFUL Backs }

A few years while attending a friend’s wedding, I had an AWE moment; she was absolutely stunning walking down isle with her father AND then it happened, an unexpected surprise; she walked past us revealing the most elegant back of a dress I had EVER seen. It was the perfect amount of beading and sparkle that lead your eyes down to her train flawlessly. It was breath-taking, classy, and memorable!  I feel like sometimes it’s easy to forget about all angles of our gown; and the majority of your dress’ first looks are at ceremonies, when you are briefly seen from the front, however, mostly from the side or back for the duration of your ceremony. AND this is the time when ALL EYES are on you! So here’s some inspiration to beautify your back side on your big day!

SWEET and NEAT
