Film. Something a lot of us thought would be quickly thrown to the side and forgotten in the onset of digital photography has been making a remarkable comeback as of late.
I can still remember the exact moment I rediscovered film. There was just something about the look of the photos I was seeing on the screen in front of me. The scanned photos were vibrant without looking cartoonish, soft without being out of focus and somehow leapt from the screen even though they were taken with a technology that was so recently thought to be on its deathbed.
"Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue." We love the sweetness and simplicity of this tradition, and we have been sharing some of our favorite ideas with you.
This is one of our favorite elements of the tradition, because it represents something that your wedding is all about - optimism for the future.

We love Do-It-Yourself projects.
They are a cheap and easy way to dress up your wedding day with just a little bit of elbow grease. One of the trends we love right now is dressing up old bottles and jars with rope or ribbon, and we decided to give it a go ourselves. We took some old wine bottles from sleek to shabby chic with just a little yarn.
Go ahead, try it. You'll fall in love!
The first bridal shows of the season are upon us, and we're so excited! Bridal shows are wonderful resources for brides, and they're also a lot of fun!

Bridal shows are a fantastic source of information. Whether you want to know what's on trend in bridal gowns this year, or if there's anyone that can create the cake of your dreams, there will be someone that can answer your question. Wedding professionals in all specialties display their work so you can get a taste of what they offer and if it works for your style, which makes the shows great timesavers in your wedding planning process.
If you want your wedding to have a natural or outdoor feel, here are some great ideas for pretty little touches that will make your wedding stand out.
Pantone, a huge trendsetter in the world of colors, has recently announced their 2013 Color of the Year: Emerald. Pantone calls it "a color of elegance and beauty," and we love it!
Emerald may not work for all of us, so here are some great ways to incorporate green into your wedding.
