We have SO many fun things planned, but also are very much looking forward to seeing all of the other wonderful wedding peeps who are also part of the crop! Seriously, have you checked out who all will be there this year!?

Crop

Well, we want to add a few more rad people to that list….like some rad Beau & Arrow followers. That’s right, we’re giving away tickets to The Cream!! Check out the videos from the past events and in the comments below please share the craziest/funniest/wildest/coolest/raddest thing that you have ever witnessed at a wedding.

Oh yeah. That was good. You’re gonna wanna win those tickets and be a part of the festivities. Can’t wait to read your comments and announce the winner next week!!

Bridal Floral Wreath’s

Yes ladies, that’s right, flowers are no longer just for the bouquet and the tables you can also wear them! Although we do agree that you and your dress are the show stopper of the day, we absolutely love when our brides want to add a little more flair to their attire. You all know us, we would put flowers on anything and everything if we could. We have pulled together some of our absolute favorite floral wreaths that we would just die to adorn on top of our heads and we hope you feel the same. AMBER_DAVID_FORMALS__ciara richardson_photography_lifestyle_wedding_utah_220

Would you wear a floral wreath on your big day?

Dreaming of a Sea of Flowers

Sweet dreams are definitely made of these. Did you catch this beyond gorgeous, take your breath away kind of wedding on Grey Likes last week? Ever since we saw the photos of this too dang cute bride and her sweet confection of a wedding dress, we’ve found ourselves daydreaming of running around in floral chiffon, blowing in the wind, and tumbling into an endless meadow of flowers. Well, we can dream, can’t we?

Current Obsession: Our Etsy Favorites

Good Monday morning beaus! Hope everyone had a lovely SuperBowl Sunday! While the menfolk took in the game, we took in the goods. Scouring countless wedding blogs, Pinterest, and Etsy just to name a few! Judging by our ever- changing Pinterest feed last night, we know we weren’t the only ladies avoiding the television….Take advantage of our meandering and check out these Etsy goodies we compiled for ya!

Yes,dear

Have you checked out the brilliant Etsy shop Yes, Dear Studio !? We’re working with them on some RAD invitations, but are quite smitten by all of the paper goodness in their shop. Particularly fond of this Joshua Tree set!

Fringe

You had us at FRINGE! How fun would some chunky fringe be hanging from your ceremony or reception decor!? Or perhaps a very special bouquet….Can’t get enough of Fleur Lux!!

Custom Stamp

Stamps. We adore stamps. Custom calligraphy stamps are off-the-charts are favorites. Look how Berin Made stamped favor tags, thank-you notes, and stationary with their cute lil stamp. Think we might order one for B&A….

cake toppers

Cake toppers are tricky. We say the simpler the better, so we are quite obsessed with Melabo‘s classic, but also quirky cake toppers. See more at their shop! The bunny couple even has bunny tails….

Seasidepress

Letterpress, just the sound of the word makes our pulse quicken. We fancy these super cute menus from Seaside Press. Your wedding will thank you for ordering them!

Okay, so this one is kind of a twofer one! We couldn’t resist sharing these knitted heart garlands AND knitted candle holders! Get them here now….

We would love to hear your favorite Etsy shops & finds! Please share in the comments below!

Monday Morning Mix: Takes Me To Paradise

In the words of Mae West, “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful!” Although we’ve been listening to Bruno Mars “Locked Out Of Heaven” on repeat since the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, we just can’t get enough! Something else we can’t get enough of currently is the wonderful summer-like weather we’ve been experiencing in SoCal these past few days. This heat streak should carry on for another week, so we will carry on singing with Mars about paradise and dreaming of what exactly that would look like…..
