Does your future husband or wife play guitar? I love these brass guitar picks from Green Leaf Pick Company. These picks can make a really cute grooms gift or just a cute gift to give to your future husband or wife randomly. You can also personalize a set for members of your bridal party.

How cute are these "In case you get cold feet" groom socks from Silkscreen Express? Although we all hope our future husband wont get cold feet right before our wedding, these are definitely a cute reminder that that's a big no-no.

Earlier today I posted an FDA list of common lipstick brands and how much lead they had in them. Instead of choosing the lowest lead-containing shade on the list, why not opt for a handmade vegan lipstick from Just Pure Minerals Shop? You'll not only be putting something on that's healthier, but you'll also be supporting a small business owner. Just Pure Minerals Shop has lots of great wedding shades and each stick is very reasonably priced. My favorite is the Natallia, what's yours?
Have you thought of the amount of lead in your lipstick? I know this isn't what I would normally post, but I recently saw a news segment that talked about the FDA's list of 400 lipsticks and how much lead they had in them. Some of the most common brands such as Maybelline and Cover Girl had some of the highest levels of lead. Below are the top 12 lead prone lipsticks they tested. The brand not only matters, but the shade does as well, shimmery lipsticks are more likely to have more lead. If you're interested in picking out your wedding lipstick according to the list, check out the full list of 400 lipsticks by clicking the image below.

Spring is a couple of months away, and I'm so looking forward to the flowers and newly grown leaves on trees. I love green for Bohemian themed weddings, which are of course abundant in the Spring. The following are some great green items from around the web.

Have you heard of Pinterest? It's a huge resource for finding a plethora of DIY projects from around the web. How it works is that people will "Pin" an item they find on a website, blog, shop, or any other online page that they like onto their Pinterest boards. Each board has a different theme, and you can have as many boards as you'd like. It's a great way to not only find wedding ideas, but also organizing photos, projects, and ideas you come across that you want to go back to. If you haven't signed up for a Pinterest account, you can request an invitation by clicking HERE.

Have you considered having a wedding video done? I really love how awesome some wedding video's are. There are a lot of really talented videographers created amazing pieces. Although you may thing that it's an expensive addition, there are a lot of photographers that have cameras that shoot video. Consider asking your photographer what they would charge for both photographs and video, if they have an assistant that could take care of one or the other.
