I spend a lot of time reading other wedding blogs in search of inspiration and because I truly enjoy reading about the weddings that couples so thoughtfully plan. I love seeing everything come together into one creative, beautiful day, and there are so many times each week when the details of a wedding (or sometimes the entire day) simply make me smile or blow me away entirely. As a result, I had a thought: why not jump on the week in review bandwagon a la Style Me Pretty, Grey Likes Weddings, and Southern Weddings? Exactly. So, each week I will bring to you my favorite wedding details from across the web and beyond.
Everything must start somewhere, so welcome to week one of Weekly Wedding Favorites.
In my opinion, Jason Mraz can do no wrong. Simply put, I love the message of this song: devotion. It reminds me of my grandparents, my grandfather specifically, who will be married for 70 years this year. Procession? First dance? Both valid options. I say daily repeat.
It can be so difficult to find and decide what to give your groom and groomsmen as a gift, which is one of the reasons why I was so excited to hear about the pocket squares designed by Armstrong & Wilson. Each square is designed from a different type of fabric representing a different look. To tie each collection together, every square is accented with a button. Oh, and another reason why I am a fan is because the company and designers are based in Philly!
Favorite color palette:
Peach definitely seems to be making a comeback, and I, for one, am a fan. This shade in particular modernizes the color, and I love that it is paired with brighter tones so both really pop in the bouquet. See more from this wedding here.
Meant to replace a journal or diary, I first came across this idea on Pinterest and immediately thought of a guestbook. There are a couple of ways to incorporate this idea. Before they leave, guests could sign a slip of paper (scrapbook paper, construction paper, or even gift tags would work well) and write down their favorite memory from your wedding. Another idea would be for guests to write down their favorite memory that they have shared with you or your groom since you’ve known each other. To take it in another direction, you could also ask for your guests’ best advice to help guide you in your marriage. Read the messages all at once or read a few each day.
I loved so many of photos from this post about Jennifer Childress. However, this one, which was taken in the Phillies stadium, is my favorite because I didn’t realize you could host your wedding at the stadium. Devoted fans: this idea is for you!
What were some of your favorite things this week?
I hope you all had a great week. Happy weekend, all!
