Whether it was Mardi Gras or the unseasonably warm temperatures, this week was full of inspiration and bright colors. To be honest, it was a little difficult to choose! Without further ado, this week’s Weekly Wedding Favorites.
Favorite Father Daughter Dance Song:
This song had me hooked at first listen. By that I mean it had me crying at first listen. It’s one of my favorite picks for a father daughter dance, whether you dance at your wedding or at another event with your dad. “Daughters” is dedicated to fathers and their daughters (obviously!), but I love how Mayer mentions mothers too. This bride’s story about how her husband performed “Daughters” while she danced with her dad at her wedding is so sweet and special – full circle perfection.
Favorite Mardi Gras Inspired Moment:
I just came across this wedding as I was writing this post, and the above photo wins. Oh my! How fun would it be to dance through the streets of New Orleans right after tying the knot with your new husband accompanied by friends, family, and complete strangers with a live band in tow? What a completely awesome, fun rush of excitement that would be. I’m totally in!
This week, I talked about my love of watercolor invitations, which was sparked by a Valentine’s Day blog by designer Carol-Hannah. Watercolors are a favorite because they can create a lovely soft color palette or one where the colors are completely vivid. The Etsy invitation pictured above was an instant favorite, but I also cannot stop going back to the save-the-date I came across on Pinterest from Erin Ever After (side note: Erin works for Style Me Pretty). Then there was this couple who incorporated watercolors throughout their wedding day – love this wedding.
This favorite can really swing in either direction: favorite cake or favorite cake topper. The entire cake is a beauty, but what really sets it apart is the cake topper. Those Adirondack chairs would be perfect atop a couple’s wedding cake at the Jersey Shore. For some reason, two chairs sitting next to each other at the beach have such a unique “forever” quality.
Confession: I cannot get enough of this wedding’s color palette (part one & part two). However, it’s the sign (those small details!) that instantly won me over. I cannot think of too many other sayings that are more fun and true than “let’s do this thing!” The best part? That saying is an obvious choice to help ease your nerves on your wedding day as well as so many other moments throughout your lives.
Have a great weekend! “Let’s do this thing!”
