Welcome Bag: Fill a canvas tote with beauty products no girl could resist. From face masks to Essie nail polish and even Laduree macaroons. Even better: include items that the girls could use throughout the day or weekend getaway!
The Food: Keep this simple! You can’t go wrong with these mini baguettes from Perfect Picnic – both adorable and delicious! The best part: your guests can pick them up and go, sans plates and flatware.
The Floats: Oversized pool floats are all the rage and truly make any pool look so chic. Whether you have one or ten, online sites like White Elephant Designs and FUNBOY have more options then you’ll know what to do with. Don’t forget the pump!
The “Bride” Stuff: This one is for the girls celebrating a bachelorette. Not all brides care for the sashes, pins, tiaras, t-shirts, etc. To make sure your bride still stands out, try offering her a more chic option like this bride choker from Erin Dana or customized beach hat from White Elephant Designs. Another perk: she can reuse them for her honeymoon!
The Style: You’ll likely be lounging poolside all day or weekend, so remind the girls to pack their cover ups. These vibrant pieces from Camilla will definitely add a pop of color to your photos! To make your girls feel included in every way, you can also fill their welcome totes with flip flops, faux floral crowns, hair ties from Love Mia + Co., and fun temporary tattoos! (Just be mindful of where you place them if the wedding is soon after the party – you don’t want to have funny-looking tanlines on her wedding day!)

Wedding blogger confession time: it's hard to impress us. We see lots of weddings.. a lot. Hundreds. The most beautiful ones end up gracing the pages of the blog, and we get to share them with all of you. And every once in a while you come across a wedding with a special story, or a totally unique detail that completely knocks our socks off... and this Central Park Loeb Boathouse Wedding is one of those. Why? It's stunning. And it was planned in THREE MONTHS. Yes, three months. Kelly + Jason's day was full of thoughtful details, stolen, quiet moments and an epic party with 120 of their closest family + friends. A wedding this gorgeous is proof that there's no perfect timeline: 3 months, 3 years, 3 days- whatever you want to celebrate the first day of the rest of your life together, go do it.
Mondays are always a little harder than the rest of the week, but we promise sitting down to savor every last detail of this wedding will make your entire day. Lucy + Kevin's romantic garden wedding at Philadelphia's Fairmont Water Works is what dreams are made of. From the gorgeous setting and color palette, to their adorable first look and the star of the show, their son Max, we're in love with every single moment. Friends, go grab that second cup of coffee and get ready to be inspired!
We've said it before and we'll say it again, the classics will always have our heart, and this gorgeous wedding from Jessica Haley Photography is absolutely one of them. Christine and Ross' wedding day is full of everything timeless that we'll all still love in 20 years: gorgeous spring florals, elegant stationery, the men in tuxedos and the bride in an elegant gown. Topped off with the gorgeous setting of the Old Field Club in East Setauket, NY, this one is for the books.
Oh friends, we've been dying to share this engagement session with you since the moment we laid eyes on it, and we know you'll love it as much as we do! Alana + Ben's engagement session with Jennifer Larsen Photography is seriously what dreams are made of. A blue tandem bike, a stunning bouquet of peonies and a couple totally in love? Yes, please!
We think it's pretty obvious that we love all things wedding: the proposal and engagement. The dress and the rings. The flowers and the stationery and all the thoughtful details... but when we get to feature a couple (from one of our favorite photographers!) who has already been featured on the blog?! Well, our day is made! Laura and Joe are perhaps the cutest couple ever, and while we LOVED their Christmas engagement session, we're head-over-heels for their wedding. Their wedding day was the perfect blend of modern elegance, and clearly full of so much joy. Get ready to be inspired - this one is sure to be a favorite of ours for a very, very long time!
There's something about weddings is Brooklyn that always tugs at our heartstrings, and today's wedding is certainly no exception. Mary + Frank's Brooklyn wedding at 501 Union is so full of love and thoughtful details, and their personality shines through at every turn. From choosing the church that a long line of family had been married at, to incorporating elements of "old world Brooklyn" with egg creams and a yellow taxi, these two crafted a wedding as unique as they are. And one of our favorite parts of their story is their exchange of messages on OK Cupid. I won't ruin it for you - go ahead and read it yourself!
Oh friends, we're so excited to share this wedding with you today! Both romantic and chic, this Philadelphia wedding from Asya Photography is stunning in every way! Inspired by their time abroad in Sweden for the last two years, Kelly and Jeff chose an intimate wedding at The Powel House with their closest family and friends. Full of lush greenery, thoughtful details and decor that was part of their story, these two certainly had a wedding to remember. Classic, elegant and perfectly sophisticated, Kelly + Jeff's wedding day is absolutely one of our favorites!
Seems fitting that it's going to be in the 80's today here in the northeast while we share this gorgeous summer wedding at the Country Club of Scranton. Rebecca + Ian's wedding was equal parts classic and fun: the perfect combination! From the stunning blush bridesmaid dresses to the lush floral arrangements, everything was chosen with careful detail and love. Zak Zavada was there to capture it all, and our favorite images by far are of the newlyweds and that epic summer sunset. Come on summer, we're ready for you!
If you're like us and wishing for warmer weather to arrive in the northeast, today's gorgeous summer wedding at Wolf Oak Acres is going to send you straight into a daydream. Kat and Doug's wedding was everything you could dream a romantic, rustic wedding would be. And the only thing more beautiful than their wedding, is the love story that got them here. These two have faced some of life's toughest challenges together; their wedding day marked a new beginning, and they certainly did it in style.
There's something about city weddings that are always chic and classic, and this Albany wedding from Rob Spring Photography is certainly no exception. Martha + Matt's wedding took place in an old downtown bank, bursting with architectural details and history. Add to that a gorgeous wedding dress, some stunning bridesmaid dresses, and gold accents, and you have an eternally classic summer wedding.
