Bridesmaids gifts: Vintage-style lockets

While the vintage look is still in for weddings, wouldn't it be great to surprise each of your bridesmaids with a charming old-fashioned locket? These could be given ahead of the wedding day for them to wear at the ceremony.

Then even after the big day, these lockets would be a sweet accent piece for any outfit they may wear...whether a girly dress, an office blazer, or jeans and a tee!

Beautiful bird cage centerpieces

Seems like spring has barely been around (in fact, it's only beginning in some places!)...and already ideas for summer weddings are popping up all over.

So before we bid adieu to this delightful season, I just had to get in a post on one of the quintessential springtime decorations: bird cages. How enchanting are these bird cage centerpieces holding flowers, candles, and of course birds. If you hurry, you just may be able to work lovelies like these into your wedding tablescape!

Handbag Corsages for Mom

First and foremost, Happy Mother's Day to all the dear moms out there!

And while we're on the subject of honoring these great ladies, I thought why not pull out ideas for truly stylish wedding accessories for the mothers of the bride and groom? Our focus today: handbag corsages! What a practical and pretty concept, combining the traditional floral corsage with Mom's wedding purse--as these oh-so-elegant pieces by Flower Design UK (Buttonhole & Corsage blog) show.

While the cherry blossoms are still in bloom!

I know cherry blossom season has been here for weeks. So this is a belated post! But when I stumbled upon this breathtaking photo, I just knew I had to pay homage to this glorious annual event--while the blossoms are still around. Or how about for next year?

How lucky is the springtime bride who can have this incredible backdrop!
