Is Big Hair Back?

by Jenny Bryde 27. October 2014 08:43

When the phrase "big hair" is uttered, I'm immediately transported back to 1985.  Ah, the good old days where your status was as big as your hair was tall.  Where any girl with her trusty bottle of hairspray could rock some voluptuous volume on her head.  Me thinks that we may be seeing a come back of the big hair, and I'm totally loving it!  I love the idea of a tramatic eye paired with larger than life locks!  What do you think of these potential hairstyles for your big day?

Biv together, shall we?

New Wedding DIY Projects!

by Jenny Bryde 20. October 2014 10:43

Every bride and groom wants their wedding to be a reflection of their personality and style.  Often this kind of stamp is not available in a brick and mortar store, but that doesn't mean we give up.  Today I'm featuring some easy to do DIY projects that any bride or groom can tackle while saving some money and putting some personality in their big day.  All of these could be incorporated into any wedding by switching up some materials and colors.  Check them out!

1.  Lace/doilie balls/light covers by UtterlyEngaged.com - Blow up balloons, use a spray adhesive or glue to attach doilies or pieces of lace, wait for glue to dry, and pop the balloons!

 

2. Rope Words by GreenWeddingShoes.com - Use glue to saturate pieces of twine or rope.  Form letters and let dry.  Voila!

 

3.  Guilded Leaf Place Cards by PolkaDotMade.com - Collect leaves, paint with desired color, use white out pen to write names.  

 

4. Gold Glitter Vase from Etsy.com seller Southern Gold Shop - Spray a spray adhesive to the enside of a glass jar.  Sprinkle glitter and roll around jar until coated on the inside.
