Save the Date Handkerchiefs!

One of our readers, Rachel, sent me THE cutest pictures of her handkerchief save the dates and I had to share. Especially since it goes with our shabby chic theme for the day. Here's how she did it! I'd previously seen handkerchiefs and other bits of fabric printed on and really liked the idea of texture. I also wanted to create a keepsake. I ended up scouring ebay for about a month, collecting vintage handkerchiefs. In the meantime, I created a vintage-y layout using our silhouetted...

An Elegant, Shabby Chic Wedding, III

This wedding makes me really happy. First of all, the bride's best friend sent it to us because she knows how much the bride loves SMP. Cute. Second, it is SO ME. I swear, I could pick up some of these decorations and plop them in my house. It's a little shabby chic, totally elegant, with details that will make any girl swoon.

Oh and a quick little note about the bridesmaids dresses...they were found at Twirl Boutique in...

An Elegant, Shabby Chic Wedding, II

Okay! On to the wedding...the ridiculously beautiful wedding. For those of you that wonder how I choose weddings to feature on SMP, this is a great example. I love to see brides crafting inspiration boards that ultimately reflect the wedding that they design. I love perfect details more than anything else. I love a sense of personality and style and I love to see a bride and groom that are head over heels for each other.

This one is all that...and so much more.

An Elegant, Shabby Chic Wedding

We have a really cute morning feature for you that has me smiling from ear to ear. Jenn, the bride in today's first real wedding fell in love with SMP while planning her day and as a gift to her, Jenn's best friend has asked us to do a full feature on it. When I saw how absolutely gorgeous the wedding was, it was a no brainer!

Anguilla Wedding by Grazier Photography, IV

Right when I started my blog, my girlfriend Jill sent me pictures from her girlfriend's recent wedding. The couple had rented out an island to host their affair (seriously) and the bride, in a HUGE/PERFECT/COMPLETELY AMAZING ballgown was brought up to the dock by a canoe, where her groom waited patiently in his tux. It was beyond perfect, beyond gorgeous.

And ever since I laid eyes on that wedding, I've had this thing for fancy, formal affairs on the beach. A tuxedo. A...
