Wedding Trend: Wedding Wheels

When planning a wedding one of the decisions you must make is will you have a wedding car. In our case, the reception and the ceremony were accross the street so we opted to go without. These pictures prove that wedding wheels can be so much more than practical. If I could do it all over again... I'd definetly get me some wheels.


1. The vintage car. The pic of this bride, through the car window is stunning. I love her radiant smile and the fact that her earrings match the vinatge car.

2. The Classic Limo- There is something so sleek and elegant about a married couple and a strech limo. They just go together and they scream sophistication and style. 



Take the Bus. This is a fun way to transport your bridal party and get some cute pics. I was once at a teacher's wedding and you guessed it the bridal party arrived in a school bus.

Merry go Round. Ok so this doesn't exactly have wheels but it does have fun. And it makes for some lively wedding pictures. 


Wedding Bike. How cute is this bride and groom and their bike? A bike would make a great addition to a picnic wedding or an outdoor one. I heart the bride's wedding boots too.

If i had to do it over again... I'd get me some wheels. Would you?


5 Ways to Belt Bridesmaid Dresses

5 Ways to Belt Bridesmaid Dresses- Now, the popular wedding dress trend of adding a sash to your dress, isn't just for brides. Bridesmaid dresses too, look great when belted. The belt can be part of the dress or something you add on.

A belted bridesmaid dress draws the eye, flatters the waist, and is a great way of tying in wedding colors. 

1. A long flowy dress looks stunning when belted with a solid color sash. 


2.  Two-tone bridesmaid dresses pop when belted with a metalic color. 


3. A bigger bolder belt is a fun way to call out your maid of honor. 


4. The same color belt creates a flattering silhouette in a more subtle way. 

 5. Belts aren't just for long dresses either. Add a sash to a short bridesmaid dress as a fun accent piece.
