3 Looks for a Summer Wedding

It seems not too long ago when I shared three looks to wear to a spring wedding. But that season has come and gone so quickly, and summer is upon us. And it is the biggest season of the year for weddings, so chances are you have a few invites and may be wondering what to wear. It's pretty easy to figure out summer wedding attire if you keep the location in mind.

Of course you have the invite to start with as well. It should say "Black Tie Attire" or "Black Tie Optional" or perhaps something like "Formal Beach Attire," and it will have the ceremony time. Generally indoor evening weddings call for more formal attire than outdoor afternoon weddings.

For an indoor wedding, no matter what time of year, you can never go wrong with a Black Formal Dresses. An elegant knee-length cocktail dress, like this FAIRY COUPLE Women's Off the Shoulder Lace Vintage Wedding Party Cocktail Dress is perfect for a black-tie optional indoor wedding, while a sleeveless o…

The Prettiest Floral Displays


Nothing makes a room more chic and pretty than a touch of fresh flowers here and there. Whenever my husband buys me a bouquet, which is often, because he is very romantic 🙂, I like to keep them in a vase on our dining table. But, as I drool over all of the floral design pages on Instagram, I do think of getting a bit more creative with my flower arrangements. And really, you don't have to be an expert to get a beautiful look. If you start with the right containers and know where to place them, you can create a very chic display in your own home. Here are a few easy and beautiful ideas.

Think outside the vase. I love this idea the most, because you can incorporate it in so many different ways. I've done it with larger arrangements in a decorative watering can, and I've used it for mini single displays in a fancy teacup or old candle holders. It's a great way to achieve big impact in a small space. For example, one of those mini candle holder arrangements pictured above would be so pretty on a vanity tray or on top of a stack of chic coffee table books.

Experiment with submerged arrangements. With tall vases, like the cylindrical ones pictured above, you can fully or partly submerge flowers for a unique display. This look works best with multiple arrangements clustered together on a console table or buffet. You can add decorative vase fillers; like shells, pebbles or fruit. I love how the one above has a large leaf wrapped around the bouquet. Here is a great step-by-step DIY for submerged arrangements, and here is some beautiful inspiration.

Arrange a group of bud vases. This is the best way to make a centerpiece on a budget. You can make a small bouquet go a long way with several small vases. Group little jars or vases of different shapes and sizes on a mantle or as a centerpiece. Pictured: SIGNALS Small Cut Glass Vases - Set of Five


This last one is my absolute favorite, because it's so easy, but looks so much more beautiful than a typical vase of flowers. And how romantic...flowers and candles in one. It's the perfect centerpiece. Get the look here >.
