Flowers and ribbon. There is so much that can be done here. I hope these two ideas from AllYou inspire you to make something super cute for your wedding date. I especially love the first pic. You can get those pots at WalMart or a craft store and paint them any color.
As women we love playing dress up. Little girls sometimes raid their mom's closet for pretty clothes and put on their jewelry and high heels. On our wedding day we dress up in one of the most beautiful dresses we will ever wear. At times it can be difficult finding wedding dresses, there is so many out there and it can get overwhelming looking through them all. WeddingDressCreator is a fun online tool where you can create a wedding dress!
You do not need to download anything. Go to the website above and start forming the dress you have in mind. Once you have your dress together print it off and go to some bridal stores with it and ask them if they have anything like it.
I hope this fun program helps you find your dream dress.
Candy Bars at wedding receptions are becoming more and more popular. I love how different they all are. There are so many different candies out there and many times you can have the candy the same colors of your wedding. I hope todays post inspires you to have a candy bar at your wedding reception.
I couldn't just leave you with one day of DIY pumpkins this October. I hope you are inspired by these pumpkins that work great as candle holders
Simple and elegant.
I love the small pumpkins on the tall candle stands.
You could even carve out the middle of the pumpkin and put a candle in it.
With a small pumpkin it would look more like a candle holder then your usual carved pumpkin.
These pumpkins have leaves painted on them. My favorite ones are the two in the back.
I would love to see this pumpkin spray painted silver with a white or orange candle in it.

The wedding day is over... all the planning, all the stress, and all the fun is gone. As brides we are left with writing thank you notes and wondering what to do with our dream dress. Many brides take their dress to a dry cleaners and have it cleaned and preserved. You may want to save your dress for memories or for a future daughter to wear one day.
After my wedding I was debating on what to do with my dress. I thought it would be great if I could give it to my daughter one day to wear.... but what if I don't have a daughter... what if she doesn't like lace? Even with changing the dress to fit with the style of her times she wouldn't be able to do much with it if she didn't like lace.
So after much debate I decided it would be best to sell my dress. Yes it will be sad to see it go, but it is more worth it to me to get back at least half of my money back from the dress right now and spend it on things that will be needed just down the road...like nursery decor :).
So where is the best place for you to sell your dress? Here are a few options:
Ebay: Easy, set up an account and post pictures. The negatives are that Ebay will take a percentage of your sale.
Craigslist: Post your dress online for free, no one will take any percentage of your sale. The drawback is that you will have strangers coming into your home and trying on your dress to see if they want it.
OnceWed: Oncewed allows brides to post their dress for free and sell it to brides all over the world. Its totally free and they give you suggestions on how to accept payments safely.
PreOwned: Preownedweddingdresses is very similar to Oncewed. It costs a one time fee of $25 to list your dress.
Pumpkins pumpkins everywhere. Pumpkins can make great vases for a October wedding. Here are a few DIY ideas to bring decor to your ceremony or reception.
I love this pumpkin vase! Take some sticks and spray paint them black.
Cut a small whole in the top of the pumpkin then stick the sticks in it.
You can leave it like that, hang a table number from it, or hang escort cards from it.
Dont forget about those great white painted pumpkins at the bottom of the picture!
You could paint your monogram or wedding date one the pumpkins.
Then cut a small whole in the top to put flowers, or even sticks with crystals or fall leaves hanging off of them.
This pumpkin vase uses wire that is twisted then put in the bottom. Then cut a whole in the top and put in your favorite flowers. I think white spider mums would look great in this!
