Until the Ribbon Breaks

Until the Ribbon Breaks

Over the Labor Day holiday, I attended a wedding in San Antonio, Texas. The couple was absolutely in love and they had the most fun for their ribbon exit.

I have had this exit on my my mind ever since; thus, a ribbon wedding. I love adding small details to a wedding that mean something to the couple that not every might know. I like to think that this bride wore a ribbon in her hair on their first day, and it has meant something to the couple since. Here we have a whimsical ribbon backdrop, as well as, ribbons blowing in the wind from each of the bouquets. I love the texture of this cake resembling a ribbon. Of course this couple also has a ribbon exit surrounded by family and friends.

Stripes Wedding Wednesday


Spring time for me equals stripe time. Stripes are always my go to when I need a quick and easy outfit. The touches of gold are the perfect way to dress up the simple black and white stripes. Guests are welcomed in with striped escort cards. Once seated, guests can view the menu and get to know other guests. The gorgeous cake is passed around. The night ends with a confetti exit for the happy couple!

Home on the Bayou

Home on the Bayou

It has been over a month since I have been home and with the upcoming Mardi Gras break I simply can’t wait! Therefore, with home on my mind, I bring you this week’s wedding wednesday: home on the bayou.

The perfect wedding for a girl from a small town. Chances are it’s featured on the front page of the local newspaper [or you can have fake ones printed and pretend like this couple]. An engagement session with a bayou backdrop is simply heavenly. This bride embraces her culture by featuring local swamp plant elements in her bouquet and the boutonnieres. Family and friends can grab a cold one from the pirogue ice chest then a “two less mud bugs” koozie. The groom’s cake features his favorite sport team [LSU of course] and his favorite seafood [crawfish]. Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band play zydeco music while guests cut a rug late into the night.

Beachful Thinking


I apologize for the delay in posting my Wedding Wednesday board. Finance tests come before blogging. =/

As the sun peaks out of the clouds in good ole Baton Rouge, I am wishing I was on the beach. I want to spend all of my time outside to soak it in while I can [not like me at all]. This inspired me to build a perfectly romantic sunny beach wedding.

The ceremony will take place with sandy toes and guests will enjoy a beautiful beachside reception. A simple sand like design on an ivory cake is the perfect adornment. This is the perfect beach wedding getaway. Can I be at the beach now?
