Get Your Gourd On: Fall Wedding Decor

by Jenny Bryde 28. September 2015 01:28

Let's face it.  A gourd on it's own is nothing special.  Even ugly, perhaps.  But there's something to be said for a group of mismatched or a number of repeating objects, gourds included.  With the season of harvest upon us, using gourds as a wedding decor theme really conveys the idea that your wedding is a celebration of family and of good things happening.  I don't even think that I'll have to convince you much beyond just showing you some great ideas.  Cheap at fall markets and at the store, gourds are easy to use, durable, and inexpensive decor items.  Check out these great gourd ideas!

by Jenny Bryde 28. September 2015 01:13

I saw it!  Just yesterday!  Along with the blood moon, I saw my first twnge of color on the tree in my front yard.  Fall has arrived, and soon all the leaves will follow.  The abundance of leaves that will soon be on the ground will open an opportunity for anyone who is incorporating fall leaves into their decor.  Are you a maybe on this?  I wanted to post a number of leaf project ideas for you to consider.  With the free leaves that you can acquire simply by volunteering to help with raking, you could make some beautiful centerpieces, place cards, aisle runners, alter decors, etc, all on the cheap!  Check these ideas out:

Imaginative Invitation Suites

by Jenny Bryde 21. September 2015 01:11

Tired of the same old, same old when it comes to invitations?  While there are a lot of free options out there, there are also a lot of FUN options to explore.  Having custom invitations created doesn't have to be a budget breaker, and it all depends on what design you like, what work you're willing to do yourself, types of materials, and if there's anything custom in the design.  Here are a number of great examples ranging from the "print your own" to the total custom job.  Click on the images to go directly to the shops!

Casual Fall Fashion for Brides

by Jenny Bryde 13. September 2015 17:09

Stop!  Before you read any further, I want to make a promise to you all that this post is not an advertisement for farm fields or for trucks.  I am laughing because most of the pictures that I found for today's post feature brides hanging out in wedding attire while apparently wading throug cattails and fish ponds.  Go figure.  

Today's post is really about a certain kind of style I've been witnessing lately as a trend with brides, and it seems to come out in spades when we hit the fall season.  Casual bridal attire is a blanket stamp for the look of natural grace and beauty when a bride looks beautiful because she feels beautiful - easy flowing hair and garments mark this look along with a relaxed face and stance.  Check out these beautiful casual fall brides!
