Fall Wedding Ideas with Acorns and Cute Squirrels

I'm going a little nuts today on the blog with a fall themed inspiration board where acorns and cute squirrels take center stage. Cute wording for the wedding would be saying the couple's names and that they're nuts for each other. This Acorn and Squirrel Themed Wedding Inspiration Board combines creams and pearls with the brown shades of fall and I just love the elegance it creates.

Hot Wedding Trend : Marquee Lights for Weddings + Parties

Marquee lights are simply amazing! And, you don't have to be a movie-obsessed couple to have them at your wedding. There are so many ways you can use marquee lights for your special day, in particular the reception. A bonus of incorporating marquee lights into your day, is that you have one of the most spectacular decor pieces for your home after your wedding. You can hold marquee letters that say "I Do" for a great bride and groom photo opportunity, you can have your new last name initial in lights, you can have the first initials of your name with the ampersand on display {maybe on the guest sign-in table}, and you can even have your name in a marquee {that lights up} as your cake topper.

Easily Dress Up Your Wedding Cake with One Large Flower

Many say that having fresh flowers on your wedding cake is a no no. So, I say, why not place an everlasting bloom on your wedding cake? And, why not make it one BIG flower? I'm loving these handmade single flower wedding cake toppers. Some are made with clay, others are sugar paste flowers and each will last indefinitely for a treasured keepsake. You may have even noticed that one of these blooms was the handmade wedding find of the week {graphic in the side banner column}. These flower cake toppers are also perfect for bridal showers too.

Wedding Reception
Your wedding is a day where the two of you become one. A couple's monogram is one of the most popular cake topper styles today. A couple's monogram is made up of the bride's first name initial, couple's last name initial then the groom's first name initial. (Ex: Mary and Bob Smith = MSB). Perhaps you just want to show off your new last name, consider just one cake top initial with colorful flowers atop your cake.
