Awesome Maid of Honor Dress

I am absolutely in love with this red dress, perfect for your maid of honor to stand out in! It's the Alicia dress from Suite, designed by Jennifer Diederich, and made out of silk wool. I love the vintage feel of it, and its open back.

Three Non-Traditional Engagement Rings

Even if you're a twin, you're unique in the world. No one is like you. So should you have an engagement ring that hundreds if not thousands of people might have? I think not. I absolutely love my engagement ring because I know not many people have this lovely hexagonal ring by New York jewelry designer Satomi Kawakita.

If you're looking for an uncommon and unconventional, but lovely handmade engagement ring, these are three great choices:

1. Cognac Diamond Ring

2. Rose Sapphire Ring

Inspiration Board #32: Forest Fall

Are you having a forest fall wedding? As soon as I saw the rhinestone headpiece by Twigs & Honey I knew that I wanted this inspiration board to be forest themed. Maybe you wouldn't necessarily think of having a forest wedding, but imagine it! Lights, and paper lanterns hanging from trees, rustic settings, a bride that looks elfin, birds chirping during the ceremony! I think it sounds pretty darn romantic. If you're convinced, and ready to take the forest wedding leap, below are some great handmade items to get you started.

The Internet & Looking Ahead to Winter

Finally! Internet that works well! I'm so excited. The past week has been an incredible pain because it took over an hour (and tons of patience) to put together a single post due to a faulty internet connection! But alas! It's fixed, hopefully permanently.

If this EVER happens to you while you're doing wedding research, check out your local bookstore like Barnes & Noble. You can get a cup of coffee or tea while you look through their collection of wedding magazines. I did this a few times while I was planning my wedding. I simply took photographs with my phone of any ideas that I saw that I liked instead of purchasing a magazine for only a couple useful pages.

It's going to officially be fall in twelve days, but for those if you that will be having a winter wedding, I'm sure you're looking ahead. And so am I. One of the main reasons, of course is to have ideas for all seasons. But another is that I love, love, love winter weddings! I found this winter wedding treasury on Etsy, by home decor shop owner Jillian, with fabulous items. To view all sixteen finds, click the image below.
