DIY Artsy Pinwheel Wedding Theme Ideas

Easy, fun, cute handmade pinwheels for your big wedding day! I love pinwheel theme weddings because it’s very hands on.  So easy to make, and so much fun when there are hundreds of them!  It’s very suitable for outdoor weddings that are very trendy these days, since pinwheels are made to move with the wind.  Pinwheels here and there can create a beautiful color theme as well.  You can have pinwheel bouquets, pinwheel boutonnieres, pinwheel invitations, pinwheel escort cards, pinwheel table centerpieces, and everything else!

Etsy Finds: Handmade Wedding Bouquet

I always love looking through etsy and finding alternative wedding bouquets such as artificial flower bouquets, vintage brooch bouquets, paper flower bouquets, fabric flower bouquets, etc.  I would love to buy all of them and just display them at my house!  I also love recommending new trendy brides to go with these alternative bouquets.  For one, because it has the warm, handmade look to complete their handmade weddings, and secondly because they will last forever.  Some brides have a hard time managing to dry the fresh flower bouquet well, and end up throwing them away.  These alternative flower bouquets will never wither, and it will look beautiful in a vase as a centerpiece at your home.

Wedding Shoes from Ruche

How cute are these? I just found a website called Ruche that has a wedding department with all these pretty wedding apparel and accessories.  A very cute vintage online boutique started off as a home based hobby by a newly wed couple.  It supports a lot of small boutiques and indie designers, which is what I most like about them.  These wedding pumps and wedding heels are at their bridal collection, which has everything from bridal dresses, bridesmaid dresses, wedding veils, wedding jewerly and etc.  Definitely worth checking out.  I’ll post more later with other products that they showcase.

Popular Wedding Engagement Ring Styles

Here’s a little basic knowledge on popular engagement ring styles.  Before you walk into a jewelry store, do your studies so that you can make the most time of your visit, instead of trying to figure out what kind of rings are available.  Solitaire engagement rings are a popular choice for elegant, classic look.  Halo rings not only adds more bling to your finger but makes the center diamond look much bigger, etc etc. You got to try on a few different styles of engagement rings too, because some styles may not accentuate the curves of your fingers like you imagined it to.

Wedding Food Trucks

Who doesn’t love food trucks? I think everyone from kids to adults can get excited over seeing a food truck pass by, wondering what kind of food they serve, and where they’re going to stop by.  Having all that fun in your wedding will just keep everyone excited and entertained.  It may also become a great way to save money on caterer plus any other charges that are required, and yet still having selection for your guests to choose from.

Floral Bridal Hair Pieces

I love brides who replaces their veil with a floral bridal hair piece.  It has this goddess-like, elegant essence that gives them so much power to their whole look.  And with the trending vintage, classic weddings these days, bridal hair pieces seems to be the way to go.
