Funny Wedding Cards

Having a hard time finding the perfect card for your friends' wedding? These hilarious letterpress cards by Tom Foolery are great, as long as the recipient has a sense of humor! Give these cards at your own risk!!

"Til death do you part......*or til monogamy gets boring"

"Here's to the bride and groom.....*thanks for all the free booze."

I apologize in advance for the language on the following card, but it is so funny I couldn't resist posting it. It is fitting for so many couples.
"You popped the question!.....*about f***ing time."

Gorgeous Golden Touches

The new Martha Stewart Weddings, on stands now, is full of fabulous ideas for making your wedding your own. My favorite part of this month's issue is Golden Touches - gorgeous golden details to make your wedding elegant & regal!

This monogram is absolute perfection! Made from Camelia leaves and sprayed with gold spray paint, it doesn't get better than this!!

Make an impact absolutely everything! Start with Manzanita branches spray painted gold and hung from ribbons. Extra wide ribbon is draped over the branches and adorned with calligraphed seating cards. Glittering faux flowers add the perfect finishing touch!

For Pets on Your Wedding Day

If it was possible, our dogs would have been included in our wedding day. Many couples want their pet to be the ring bearer or at least to be included in a few photos. I've seen many ways to dress up your pet for the big day, but none quite as cute as this DIY Bride pearl collar.
What you need:
Embroidery Thread
Large Faux Pearls (these are 18mm, ordered from ebay)
Sturdy Needle
Double Faced Satin Ribbon matching your wedding colors
Plastic Clasp

It seems simple enough, but full instructions are posted on the DIY Bride website. Imagine the adorable photos of you in your wedding gown with your pooch!!!

Project Runway's Leanne Marshall

Leanne is my pick to win the show, especially after last weeks wedding challenge I posted about. I have just discovered her Etsy shop and had to share it with you all! Granted, this has nothing to do with weddings, but I couldn't resist. It is full of fabulous clothing that absolutely reflects her aesthetic that we've seen throughout the show: Lots of ruffles, pleats, and waves. Gorgeous!Too bad we didn't know about this Etsy shop earlier! It looks like everything has sold out in the past couple of weeks due to her exposure from the show.

Crazy about Project Runway!

Tonight's Project Runway required designers to create wedding gowns - always my favorite challenge. In the first season Jay McCarroll designed an amazing fitted, jersey gown that was incredible! I have scoured the internet looking for a photo without success. I would love to post it, but I absolutely love these 2 dresses designed for tonight's Season Finale of Project Runway. They are modern and stunning!
