How adorable are these custom cake toppers?!? I love how they match perfectly with the bride and groom. I'm on a wedding team with their creator, Dandelionland, and she's as sweet as her creations are! You can view more of her creations in her Etsy shop here.

Hope the sun is shining where you are ~ it's a rare sunny day here in the Pacific Northwest!

Photo of the Day | Bachelorette Party Cookies

I am absolutely in love with these lingerie-inspired cookies! I can't get over the detail on them! They would be so perfect for a bridal shower or bachelorette party, but I think they're almost too delicious to eat!

Happy Wednesday!

Photo of the Day | Trash the Dress

I've always been opposed to the idea of trashing a wedding dress ~ it's so expensive! What if your future daughter would want to wear it some day?!? It could be donated for a good cause! The list of reasons to preserve your dress go on and on!

Then, I stumbled across this picture on Pinterest...

If I could be guaranteed a gorgeous shot like this, I'd trash my dress in a heartbeat! 

Photograph by Dave and Charlotte. Check out more amazing shots from this "trash the dress" session here; pictures from this beautiful couple's big day can be seen here.

Did you {or would you} trash your wedding dress after the big day? 

Happy Wednesday!

Real Weddings | Katie's Kansas City Chiefs Wedding Garter

Welcome to another installment in my Real Weddings series! 

Katie and husband Brian wed last October at the Junior League of Bakersfield in California. In Katie's own words: "I chose the Chiefs because it has been my husband's family's favorite team forever, and now it's mine also. I used to hate football but because I was forced to watch it every Sunday, it grew on me so I decided to adopt the Chiefs too!". Photos by Watts Photography.

Superhero Showcase | Real Life Superhero Wedding Garter Sets

For the final installment in my Superhero showcase, I want to focus on real life superheroes ~ the men and women who put their lives on the line every day as police officers and firefighters. 

I originally made this Thin Blue Line garter set honoring police officers as a custom request, and it quickly became a best-seller.

I added the Thin Red Line garter set for firefighters a few months ago after searching far and wide for Maltese cross charms ~ aren't they perfect?!?
