While summer is a big wedding season, my personal favorite season for weddings is fall. I love the colors, the rustic decor, the flowers and the favors. I am going to be a bridesmaid in a wedding at the end of October and and have enjoyed chatting with the bride about her fall inspired wedding plans including berries in the boutaniers, homemade jam in mason jars for favors (made from fruits from their backyard) and dancing under the stars. I think it is fun for every component of this celebration to be in theme: the bridal shower (alice in wonderland tea party), the girl's weekend (Los Angeles tourist theme...we did a post about that here) and the ceremony (in theme with the season). ~m

I had my wedding in June of 2011 as my favorite season for weddings is the summer. My wedding was held on a beach in Monterey, CA and was a Scottish-themed wedding. My husband and I wanted to celebrate our culture: the groom/groomsmen wore kilts, the bridesmaids wore black dresses with a sash of their own clan's tartan, we dined on homemade Scottish food and had a bagpiper. My mother and father walked me down the aisle. We wanted the wedding to be small so that we could have time to meet with all of our guests. It was a wonderful time shared with our families and close friends. How can you not enjoy celebrating the love you have found in this crazy world? Especially when the beach winds kick up during the ceremony showing what's really are under the kilts! ;) ~s
The Loverly website is a great resource for brides and can help minimize the stress associated with planning such an important and special event. You can create an online board of all the ideas you like and refer to the board as you progress along in planning. The best part is that the website provides you the links to the original resources, the company names and their links so you can explore their websites further and, lastly, you can shop via the Loverly website for a variety of wedding necessities including the "save the date" cards. This website truly makes it easier to make your board a reality. In addition, the website features pictures from real weddings as another source of inspiration. While every component of a wedding is important, our favorite details are the wedding dress and wedding favors (on Loverly's website, you can peruse dresses here and creative gift ideas, here, while enjoying your morning cup of coffee or your evening glass of wine...the website is so user friendly!). Sydney' favorite dress style is sweetheart and Megan's, cap sleeve and one shoulder.
