Wednesday Wishlist

Wednesday Wishlist-Wedding Wednesday Version


Anyone who knows me knows that I'm obsessed with weddings. I love going to them, looking at pictures, pinning ideas for them onto my I'll Wear White & You'll Wear Out The Words I Love You  and my Engagement & Wedding Pictures  Pinterest boards.

Although I'm not currently planning my own wedding (yet), I do dream as every other good Southern girl does. For this Wednesday's Wishlist, it's going to be a Wedding Wednesday version...so enjoy!

I love rustic, country engagement sessions...but this one is so beautiful. The couple looks so in love & I adore how they incorporated the horses into the bottom shot.

These photos came from Amanda Lea Photography , who does absolutely beautiful work.

Father letting go of the bride's hand.  Love this shot.

This image is one that I know my photographer will HAVE to capture on my big day. The bride letting go of her father's hand and going off into her new future with her brand-new husband is such a stirring moment. Plus, that dress is phenomenal-let's be honest.

This photo didn't have a link back to a photography page, so once again if you know who's photo this is..I would love to give them credit!


choose a seat, not a sideOh snap!

Chalk art is a must for any Southern wedding! 

I love the saying featured on the first sign, since it's a little different from the over-used "Come as you are, stay as long as you can. We're all family now, so no seating-plan!"
And I love the idea of having your own personal Instagram hashtag so that the happy couple can view all of their wedding pictures from all of their friends & family!

This bouquet is so beautiful, I just can't stand it. The peonies are my ideal wedding flower, the exposed stems are perfect for a touch of bright color, and I can't get over the monogrammed ribbon. The monogrammed ribbon could even be your "Something Blue" if you so choose! It's not a Southern wedding unless something is monogrammed, so it might as well be your bouquet.

This engagement ring is so dainty and precious. I love the small twist on the sides, the large circular center diamond, smaller diamonds in the square halo & on the band, and the small almost rose-gold metal. Is there anything better than a vintage-inspired engagement ring?

This particular ring didn't have a link back to a blog or jewelry website, so I'm not sure of it's original source...but I wish I was!


 For bridesmaids, consider bouquets of hydrangea. This big flower will pack a lot of "OOMF" with just a few stems. You can opt for white like the ones here, or add a little color!  Personally, I like the idea of going with all white for the bridesmaids and then adding a little bit of color to the bridal bouquet. Creates a beautiful pop against a white gown!

I love the idea of using hydrangeas as the bridesmaids bouquet. Using only a few stems, you can get a lot of visual interest! Wrap them with some simple ribbon & you're done. Plus, it will accent a Southern, rustic themed wedding (like the one I want!)

As soon as I saw this, I knew I wanted to do something similar for my wedding centerpieces. It's so simple and delicate, plus I know it would be more cost effective than having huge centerpieces from a florist!
