Devils in the details....


I'm a total freak about details.  I'm like this with every event, party, etc.  It didn't change when it came to my wedding or when I had a baby.  Yep, still a freak.  My hand painted parasol (bought solely for a photo prop), was from Pamela's Parasols.  I see now that my pic is actually featured on her website.  Hmm, didn't know that, lol.  Anyway, she does gorgeous work!
My husband and I married in a small intimate affair of family and friends on the beach in Corolla, NC.  Otherwise known as the OBX.  It was gorgeous and the perfect laid back affair.  Everyone wore flax linen and/or white.  All of our attendant's clothing came from JCrew and so did my dress!  We also bought JCrew straw fedora hats for the guys.  It was perfect for a beach wedding, and yes, we got in the ocean in our wedding attire!  You only live once right?
I wore these gorgeous flip flops to my wedding and they still sell them at Saks.  Oh, and yes, I am aware that my shoes cost more than my wedding dress.  Hey, it was my day people, lol.  I think it is a great way to have special wedding shoes but yet still have a beachy feel! (excuse the blister and the ugly commercial grade carpet, I took this in the restaurant, ha)


Here are some of the details that I found during my wedding process that I think you might enjoy.  
ATTENDANT GIFTS:
How cute are these little cermic bowls to put your new rings in after your big day???? Say Your Piece makes these for $10 each!
Um, how stinkin' cute are these? With your  names and wedding date on the back!
And hello, super cute bridesmaids gifts!  At $5 a pop.  Nice, esp in your wedding colors!
Might as well put your attendant gifts in personalized bags, right?  Go big or go home.  Here is another company that makes them too, super cute!
WEDDING CAKE TOPPER:
These seriously might be the cutest most unique wedding cake toppers ever!  This shop, Milk Tea, made my daughter's birthday topper and she does the most detailed phenomenal work! 
FAVORS:
In these personalized printed favor bags?  Yes, please!
TABLE DETAILS:
Who doesn't love a personalized straw for your outdoor wedding?
LASTLY, FOR FUN....and a keepsake
This keychain is a super fun way to remember the day 
(not that you'd forget, but you get the idea)

  2. I used those Say Your Piece items for my bridesmaids in my wedding, I have loved her stuff for years. What I did was I mailed the pieces to the girls, and it asked them to be my bridesmaids in writing on the back.

  3. I love that keychain. It would be perfect for babygirl's birthday too.
    I might be extra sentimental over my child this morning because I may or may not have left her within reach of my coffee and some scissors while watching K&W's first kiss whilst texting. Apparently she can crawl across the room and pull herself up in .2 seconds now
