Wedding Shoes – Oh!

You found the perfect dress and now it’s time to find those shoes that you are crazy for. There seems to be no hard and fast rules to shoe choosing except making sure that they are comfortable. White, ivory or color? Low, medium or high heel? You choose but remember that you will be on your feet for several hours and shoes that are ‘to die for’ but not a good fit will cut your dancing hour short. There are so many options, take your time and have fun. Don’t forget to take your shoes for final gown fittings.

I’ve created flowers for a lot of beach weddings but never seen these. They are super cute!

And I love jewel encrusted anything…

Wedding Maps

Recently I was considering whether we needed a map to include in Annie’s invitation. Even though most people know their way around Boulder…I just love maps!  So in my search for map options, I came across several different ways that maps have been integrated into wedding decor. Below are a few samples…

I’m a huge fan of  Laura Hooper’s maps included with the wedding invitations…

The map envelope liners are an easy DIY…

Oh now this couple had to do a bit of traveling to keep the romance going. This vintage wall map doubles as the guest book. Lemon and Lime Studio

In the end, you can put a map on anything. It’s a fun theme for a traveling couple or destination wedding. This post certainly gives me some great map ideas. Hope it inspires you too.

Military Wedding

In honor of Memorial Day I’ve scoured the internet and found some great photos from military weddings. I’m a patriot to the core and I’m loving the red, white and blue!
