I met Caroline and Evan of CSE Photography at a recent event, and they are the sweetest people ever. I don’t know what it is about those husband and wife photography teams, but they are amazing, as is their work!

When Caroline sent me this awesome Trash the Dress photo shoot the other day, I knew I would be sharing it with you all! The photos look so very high fashion- it must have been so much fun! Just what a Trash the Dress photo shoot should be!

Beautiful, no? Thanks for the amazing photos Caroline and Evan!

Has anyone done a Trash the Dress, or is planning on doing one? I personally can’t bring myself to do it because I love my dress so much!

I started off making just a green and white inspiration board. Green and white together is so elegant and classy, however, I was feeling like it needed a bit more fun. So, lo and behold, green, white, and pink! When adding an accent color to a color palette, it not only kicks up the color, but it can also add a whole new feel to your event! This combination can be preppy, modern, or elegant, and it all depends on where and how you use the accent color.

A green and white wedding with pink accents is a wonderful color palette for a spring or summer wedding! Are there any spring or summer brides considering using this color combination?

When I saw this very cool DIY project, it immediately went on my list of things to share with my readers!

Anna of Rifle Design created this incredibly fun menu wheel! Since this is a somewhat time intensive project, it would be ideal for a small wedding. However, it would also be a great idea to just put one or two at a table! It would be a great icebreaker for your guests too!

I would love to host a dinner party where I could make a few of these! I’m thinking of perhaps making these for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, in the appropriate colors. Anyone have an event coming up that you could make these for?

I had to share this great style inspiration board that Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book employee made!

These dresses are all from JCrew, and the thing I love the most is the combination of the prints with solids. A combination like this makes for an incredibly modern and chic look for bridesmaids! I love the different fabrics together too. It’s something that I’ve always thought would be a great idea, but I wasn’t sure how it would look together! It looks amazing!

It seems that bridesmaid dresses are becoming more and more stylish now. How great is it to have a bridesmaid dress that you can REALLY wear again?!

Is anyone using a combination of prints and solids for their bridesmaids’ dresses?
