DIY Succulent Wedding Favors/Centerpieces - Perfect for a Summer Wedding!

There are a lot of cool options for DIY center pieces and decor. Currently, one of the more popular options is to use succulent plants in lieu or in addition to flowers.

Succulents are a great alternative to flowers because they don’t require as much care, and if you’re doing a DIY wedding, you can put together your succulent wedding decor weeks ahead of time without having to worry about them wilting, which did happen at my wedding (trust me it can be a downer, especially in 110 degree weather!). During the span of days, plants may not need anything, and if you prepare them a couple of weeks ahead of time, they will not need much more than a light watering. Additionally, these beautiful arrangements can also be used as wedding mementos for your guests to take with them after the party is finished, serving as both table decor and awesome succulent wedding favors.

Mini succulent kits can be purchased in bulk, and include everything you would need to create your arrangements yourself. Below is a cute video from that will walk you through quick and easy succulent kit-building.

This weeks adorable wedding video is brought to you by Alin + Elisa. It was shot by videographer Paul Sinpetrean. And, for those of you who like Converse shoes, watching the video definitely makes it seem a little more okay for your entire wedding party to wear sneakers.

Wedding Photo Booth with A Twist

Do you like the idea of having a photobooth at your wedding, but can't fit it into your budge? Or simply don't have anyone who can manage it?

I love this new app, Vello, which lets its users collaborate on videos together. Having everyone in your wedding party with a smartphone download the app and then share their own snippets, which will then be connected into one longer video, can be a great alternative to a photobooth.

"Rather than being confined to a booth, guests can record themselves raising a glass, dancing the night away or sharing some advice with the newlyweds – special, fun and hilarious moments that the couple may miss out on given the hectic nature of the day. The app stitches each guest’s clip together into one personal wedding video," Kristina, a representative for Vello told The Handmade Wedding.

If nothing else, it sounds like this could be a great way to compile moments from your big night!

Delicious Wedding Food Recipes from Metropolitan Bakery

How often do you think of your wedding food?

Are you thinking of having a family member cook?

Joe and I did. His dad cooked the most amazing BBQ that until this day, I really regret not finishing my whole plate. It was that good. If BBQ isn't your style, this wonderful cookbook from the artisan bakera Metropolitan Bakery in Philadelphia has delicious looking recipes including an awesome looking coconut cake and finger foods that look mouthwatering. They even have a few recipes available online.
