Since it is nearly July (already!) most beach brides have already planned their weddings and the major pieces should be all set. But if you are looking for a few last minute details to make your wedding extra special, I have a couple of cute Etsy finds. And who can resist online shopping for a few last minutes touches?

Here are some desirable detail images I’ve been saving on my computer along the way. I never remember where they come from or when I found them, but ..read more
It’s tradition to make a bridal bouquet for the wedding rehearsal at the bridal shower. Usually it’s a combination of wrapping paper cut outs and ribbons from all of the gifts the bride receives.

It combines that tradition with a classier presentation, making the bouquet a keepsake rather than something that gets tossed before the wedding ceremony even happens.
Each guest writes a message of good luck and well wishes for the big ..read more
