Details in the Heart

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, this week I have been looking at ways to subtly add hearts into our wedding without being overly predictable or cutesy.  I love a sweet heart as much as any other girl, but want to incorporate this idea with an element of restraint so as to keep it from looking like a Valentine's explosion. Here are a few creative ideas I found to add some extra love to your special day.

Wedding attire: I would love to create our own heart patch with our initials and wedding date.

Add some love to your sole! These awesome heart stopper pads on the right will help you stay upright down the aisle and while you are breaking it down on the dance floor.

Are you adding any heart details to your special days? Happy early Valentines Day to you and your sweet!

Thankful for {family}

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays (I think I say this at every holiday). I love Thanksgiving because it's all about bringing loved ones together to cook and enjoy a wonderful meal and remember what we are all thankful for. No presents. Just family, football, lazy couch time, cooking together, feasting and a long weekend ahead. ahhh I love Thanksgiving! So this week I've been thinking a lot about family and how we can incorporate our past generations into our wedding day, show a little bit of our families' histories, and also honor some people who will be there in spirit. I love the idea of using pictures, because it adds a personal touch and gives guests a chance to see that you have your grandma's nose or your grandpa's gap-tooth. You can't go wrong with pictures.

My Turn:

Fire-pits: Outdoor fire-pits are incredibly fun. They offer a place for guests to hang out and chat, but the space is still aesthetic.

Chandeliers: Chandeliers are completely chic and vintage and add so much glamour to the space. Just gorgeous!

Tags: I love paper products, and tags are my all time favorite! I will definitely incorperate different types of tags in each aspect of the wedding.

Keys: I love love love keys! Skeleton keys add a vintage aspect to the wedding, and using these as the place cards is a unique aspect way to incorporate details!

Your Turn:

Time for you to spill the beans! What details do you love and how are you going to incorporate these into your wedding??
