Cake Servings Made Simple.  Sometimes we pin images because they are too breathtaking for words; sometimes we pin images because we can’t wait to recreate the beauty or style of a particular scene.  But sometimes we pin images because they’re so darn helpful and handy!  This pin about cake servings is the perfect example of those helpful and handy pins, as it breaks down cake size and servings by the slice and tier size.  Though most cake bakers are aware of this information, its nice to go in to a cake meeting prepared, so you know what to expect.  This is also perfect for the DIY couple who wants to they have enough sweetness to go around, without going totally overboard.  Who said helpful and handy isn’t sweet?

Bold Kate Spade Bauble.  With neon having a major moment this summer, this necklace was love at first glace.  We love bold jewelry on brides, and the bright colors in this piece make it the perfect accessory for the bride wanting to add just the right amount of punch to her look.  Not sure you want so much pizzazz for the whole day?  Think about adding this bold accessory for the reception or later in the night when the dance party gets going.

Make Your Tables Glow.  We are always looking for fun ways to jazz up reception spaces and help set the mood with lighting, and this pin certainly provides a unique and gorgeous way to glam up your reception space!  Add garden lights under tablecloths to provide the perfect glow and ambiance to any space.  Your linens will help determine the exact hue of the glow, providing endless options for that special touch.  We love this look for both indoor and outdoor ceremonies, and our minds are now spinning for all the cool places you could incorporate this idea.  So get some garden lights and get your glow on!

Statement Back.  We often find ourselves swooning over bridal gowns, but when we saw the back of this bridal number, we were literally speechless!  We’re not sure we’ve ever seen such a magnificent backside view of a gown.  Sometimes guests complain about having to stare at the back of the happy couple as they say their vows, but with this dress, we don’t think anyone would mind!  Wanting a blinged out backside like this?  Think hair up and simple jewelry to really let the gown sing.

Streamer Backdrop.  Springtime in Chicago is upon us, and that means we’re gearing up for some fantastic outdoor summer weddings.  While we love some of the popular outdoor venues in the Windy City, we also love how more and more couples are embracing backyards, nearby parks, and hometown nature preserves.  This simple streamer backdrop adds the perfect amount of pizzazz, without distracting from nature’s beauty.  We love the multicolored streamers, but we also think this backdrop would look beautiful with shades of white, draped with ivory, cream, and tea stained linens.

Embrace Neon.  Neon is one of the biggest wedding fashion trends of the season.  We’re seeing it in both men’s and women’s fashions, with brightly hued chinos, handbags, and sunglasses.  So when we saw these groomsmen’s neon pink socks, we couldn’t help but love their attention to both trends and personality.   The pairing of the spunky color with the classic argyle print is a match made in sock heaven.  We also love that these socks add some whimsy without distracting from the overall look too terribly much.  Bring on the neon socks!
