It’s always cute when grooms find a way to let their personalities pop up in the wedding–and often hilarious. At a wedding we did recently, the groom donned a pair of light-up cufflinks for the reception. I thought it was adorable and showed a sense of humor, which is very much a necessity for getting through such an emotionally charged day.
They say that when you direct a play, you shouldn’t be friends with the cast because by the end of the show, they’ll all hate you. I don’t think the same concept should apply to brides organizing their weddings.
And that is why I am of the firm belief that bridesmaids’ dresses don’t have to be ugly! They can be really, really pretty! Bridesmaids’ dresses do NOT have to look like this:
But there are some easy ways to avoid the typical ugly-bridesmaid-dress syndrome. For one, you can just pick a basic color scheme and ask your bridesmaids to wear their own dresses that fit with the scheme. That adds some great variety (but not chaos) to the wedding photos and ensures that each can pick a dress that flatters her body type in a color and cut that she likes.
I’m loving the white with a pop of color! It really makes the centerpieces stand out. My only concern is that they would roll off of the table or something (because that is something that would happen to me), but you can probably prevent that easily by stationing candles or other items around the spheres.
Such an easy DIY. Just wrap string around a blown up balloon, spray with fabric hardener, pop balloon and now you have a precious centerpiece idea! Just make sure you leave a big enough hole somewhere to pull the pieces of balloon out once you’ve popped it.
One of their suggestions was to hang these behind the altar or from some rafters. That would create such a fairyland effect! (And it would also keep them from rolling off of your tables at inopportune moments.)

I may just be a five-year-old at heart, but what about the words “dessert” and “table” together doesn’t make you feel like clapping your hands together? It’s even better when the table is absolutely gorgeous, like this one. With a dessert table, there’s something for everyone!

The plum tie and vest look so good with the light gray jacket. It’s so easy to create a classic look with these two colors! It works so well.
