Hey y'all! It's been a long time since I've posted about Links I Love, so it's time for another! These posts are typically full of things that don't fit in any other section on this blog... Inspiration from wedding blogs, weddings I've seen on Instagram, articles that I simply have to share with our brides, and so much more. I always save wedding things on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram, and if they don't fit into any other category on this blog, I round them all up for a post like this one! Here are some of my favorite wedding-related posts I've been hoarding on secret Pinterest boards and in my phone. ;)
Deer Pearl Flowers shared a round-up of 30 Perfect Ideas for A Rustic Wedding. The post is full of great ideas and pretty details, but this floral-and-greenery-covered swing!!! SWOON. This is probably one of my favorite wedding details I've ever seen. I love how simple, yet romantic and dreamy it is. What an unexpected, beautiful wedding detail and the perfect place for sweet photos with your love!
While we're on the subject of things covered in greenery and gorgeous flowers, look at this AMAZING ceremony backdrop! This is SO pretty and dreamy. It's the perfect combination of rustic and elegance, with a hint of boho. You've also got to see the romantic ballroom reception, as well as the cake! "I chose black and white, emerald green, gold, cowhide, deer antlers, lucite, and shearlings to be the main staples of our day. Kind of this moody, glam, ranch look. Is that a thing?" That's a quote from the bride... Y'all know this wedding was good! Check it out.
Brit + Co featured an article by Lauren Conrad that lists five things to DIY for your wedding, as well as five things you should not DIY. She was spot on with most of it, but we disagree with her on one major thing. (Are you even allowed to disagree with Lauren Conrad?!) While she included boutonnieres and bouquets on her DIY list, we'd suggest leaving that up to the pros. We 100% agree with her including photography and day-of coordinating on her "better off buying" list! DIYing for your wedding can be a whole lot of fun... but there are some things that you should definitely leave to the professionals!
This Buzzfeed article called I Found Out How To Pee In Different Wedding Dresses And It Wasn't Easy is LEGIT. While it may be funny and all, this is vital information for any bride to have. Peeing in a wedding dress is no joke! Thankfully, this bride-to-be tried several different methods in gowns with different silhouettes to find out what works and what doesn't. There are photos, as well as handy diagrams. It's funny, but it'll come in handy on your wedding day! ;)
This wedding on Style Me Pretty blew me away! This wedding had a classic theme, with a champagne, gold, gray and taupe color palette. It was elegant and romantic, with a garden feel and earthy vibes. Their florals were full of lush greenery. But the highlight was obviously that ceremony backdrop! Candles on a staircase, surrounded by green garlands. Romantic and stunning!
15 Flower Bedecked Wedding Cakes. No other explanation needed. This one is my fave!
One of my favorite wedding Instagram accounts is Jacin Fitzgerald's. She's an Atlanta-based wedding coordinator who plans weddings throughout the country (mostly in the south and on the east coast). Her style is classic, preppy, Southern, sweet, and she always includes the most stunning florals in her weddings. I LOVE this bouquet, and I'm always so inspired by her floral masterpieces!
I hope this post wasn't too random/all over the place for y'all! I just can't keep good wedding links to myself! :) In the near future, I'll be sharing more recent weddings at The Barn, as well as the prettiest baby shower ever. Y'all are going to love these!
