Get inspired!

Your exit from your wedding is the last thing your guests will see on your big day, so why not make it incredibly memorable?? The traditional exit celebration consisted of throwing rice, but we love that brides are now breaking some rules and having more fun with it. Today’s Top 10 is a celebration of the most fun exit shots we’ve seen yet. Sparklers, bubbles & pom-pom balls, oh my! These couples got creative with it, and I hope it inspires you to do the same.

Fall is sadly nearing its end, but don’t worry! We have one last autumn inspired DIY project for you. With all the leaves falling, we are incredibly inspired and in love with anything leaf-related! Last week we showed you how to make glam leaf name cards, so continuing in that vein, get ready to learn how to make a glittery leaf garland! This beautiful wall decoration will add some sparkle to your fall wedding, and who wouldn’t adore that!? We had so much fun making one for ourselves and I know you will too. Enjoy! Xo, Danielle

Materials

Paint brush

Mod Podge

Glitter

Hole Punch

Ribbon

Fake Leaves (We used foam leaves, but you can use real or plastic ones as well!)

Instructions:

1. Squeeze Mod Podge onto leaf and spread evenly.

 

2. While glue is still wet, sprinkle on glitter and spread with a dry brush.

 

3. Let leaves dry, and then space them how far apart you want them to measure how long your ribbon needs to be.

4. Punch a hole at the base of each leaf.

5. Tie ribbon through the hole, and then tie the other side to the main garland ribbon.

 

6. Hang on the wall and enjoy!

 

One look at Kaitlin & Josh’s stunning wedding and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported back in time! The 1920’s look is back, and I can’t even begin to describe how happy I am about this trend.

And don’t even get me started on how stunning Kaitlin looks! Her delicate dress is simply beautiful, and her birdcage style veil is nothing short of wonderful. What are you waiting for!?

Alexandra is the epitome of elegance from her classic ballgown wedding dress to that timeless bouquet of white roses. From the second I saw this perfect portrait session, I was obsessed! It exudes the southern charm that bridal portraits are all about. Not only is her whole look dazzling, but can you believe how stunning of a venue this is? It complements her style wonderfully and is simple enough to let her charm and natural beauty shine brightly through. Xo, Danielle

Meet Amanda, our bride of the week! This beautiful bride married her husband, Paul, in Philadelphia in July, and their wedding was so incredibly colorful, stylish & unique! The first thing that made me swoon was easily her ethereal light gray wedding dress- how amazingly inspirational is that!? Paired with that unbelievable sheer diamond shawl and vintage headband and with a jewel toned waterfall bouquet to top it off, this is a look that I’ll remember forever. Xo, Danielle
