Summer is officially here!  What would be more  exciting than to enjoy the beautiful weather and gorgeous Wisconsin scenery than having a Camp Wedding?

Camp Wedding would allow you to creatively connect to nature.

How about spending your honeynoon in a teepee?

For personal flair, cute signs are always appreciated…

Cute cards and log books are also always interesting and add that eco friendly flair.

Lastly, for a truly rustic wedding, try going for a venue that offers exposed beams and open sides allowing you to be part of the natural setting!

{ 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!

{ 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!

{ 10 Beautifully BELTED Wedding Dresses }

Accessorize. Accessorize. Accessorize!!! Have I mentioned how much I love and live for beautiful accessories?! If not, I must tell you; I LOVE and LIVE FOR beautiful accessories! Actually, for my own wedding, I had two separate sets of accessories with my dress. One set for our ceremony and a second set for the reception! So, remember gals, if you don’t two or three dress it up; you can still get multiple looks just by accessorizing! Good stuff! WooHoo accessories!

ANYWHO…one of my new favorite looks is a BEAUTIFULLY BELTED WEDDING DRESS! Why wouldn’t you want emphasize the thinnest part of you EVERYDAY, let alone your wedding day! And, the belts that are out there today are stunning, and I mean STUNNING! From floral, to feathery, to shiney, to sparkly, there is a bridal belt out that to meet everyone’s style. I must even admit, some of these belts make a gorgeous dress, DROP DEAD GORGEOUS! (P.S. on a side note, did you know the phrase “Drop Dead” was coined in 1962 meaning excellent? “Drop dead gorgeous” was coined in an article about Michelle Pfeiffer in 1985 and has stuck around ever since! Good phrase nonetheless, thanks to the awesome-ness of the cat-woman herself!) Okay, now that you know that random fact; here’s some weekly wedding inspiration for ya! Cheers to the belt! Enjoy!

This one makes me swoon! Love everything about this look!

Do you feel inspired?! How about excited for the FAIR?!? I feel both! You could be the “Fairest of the Fair” if you choose to do this theme, and it won’t be able to help but be “The Big Show” of the year! Okay, I’ll stop already! BUT someone PLEASE plan this wedding or I’m going to have to talk to my husband about renting me a ferris wheel and getting married again, AGAIN! I’m sure he’ll go for that! 🙂 ANYHOW, HAPPY FAIR TIME ALL! Enjoy your corn dogs ladies and gents!
