{ Christmas Wedding }

9a726956b7bc4bfdd84c90a5d6ff3c41

Is there a more magical time of the year than Christmas?! I truly LOVE LOVE and LOVE EVERYTHING about this time of year! It really is the “most wonderful time of the year” …so why not add to the celebrating with a “Christmas Wedding”?! I’m not going to lie, I may be vicariously living through this blog and wishing I had planned my own Christmas wedding…however…I think that is where a lot of my blog idears come from! So, if you do a Christmas wedding, invite me darnit; so I can vicariously live through you! Now, back to talking about me! 🙂 If I had a Christmas wedding; this is just what I would do…

I love these faux wood and snowflake invites!

This time of year, most churches are decorated BEAUTIFULLY with trees and pointsettias, so decorating has just gotten easier! Now, if you were me…we would take all our pictures before and have a ceremony when it’s dark (which is 4:00 these days) when all the trees and candlelight can perfectly glow for that warm, romantic, and magical look we’re going for! Love the added garlands in lanterns in these two photos!

Since it’s Christmas, we all need a little more sparkle…I think the bridesmaids would love us FOREVER if they got to wear something FAB like this with their awesome EVERGREEN!

Where it would be ALL lit up with SOO MANY CHRISTMAS lights you can hardly believe your pretty little eyes!

Butter cream covered, fluffily frosted, cupcakes pretties, cake pop cuties, fondant beauties, and NOW the trend of the NAKED CAKE!

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!
