    Styling Your Bridesmaids

    If you’re a reader of this blog, you know I love mismatched bridesmaids and I love grey as a neutral. So I’m swooning over today’s featured bridesmaid dresses. I also love making things as easy as possible for your bridesmaids – they are doing so much for you by being a part of your wedding day. Think about it – they spend their own money, take time out of their lives, travel, throw showers, attend bachelorette parties, listen to you complain about wedding planning, and so much more. So why not make life easier on them and let them choose their bridesmaid dresses from Nordstrom Weddings? Nordstrom has a wide variety of bridesmaid dress options, with colors and silhouettes that will please and flatter all of your gals. And we all know Nordstrom is known for their amazing customer service, which is key if a dress doesn’t fit or there is any sort of issue.

    As someone who has been a bridesmaid 9 times (I’m not kidding!) I would SO have appreciated getting to wear a dress as gorgeous as one of these with the ease and convenience of buying at Nordstrom.

    From a bride’s perspective, you don’t have to worry about your gals choosing an ugly dress or something you don’t like, because the bridesmaids dress selection at Nordstrom is gorgeous! The dresses are elegant, classic, and timeless – just like you want your bridesmaids to look. And since there are locations all over, your bridesmaids can shop, see a stylist, get alterations done, and make exchanges wherever they are, in store. So everyone wins! You can see more bridal and bridesmaid style available at Nordstrom over on Style Me Pretty as well.

    How do you plan to have your bridesmaids shop for dresses? Will you choose the dress, let them choose, or shop together?

    Beautiful & Budget-Friendly Wedding Bands from Tungsten World

    These days most brides and grooms choose a white gold wedding band. I know I did. But did you know that there is a material out there that looks the same as white gold but is more durable and more affordable? True story! Cobalt chrome is a material that is naturally white gold in color, so there is no need for rhodium plating. It is also more scratch resistant and more budget-friendly than white gold. But looking at it, you would never know the difference between the two.  And even though it is scratch resistant, Tungsten World can do custom engraving on your cobalt chrome wedding band with their laser etching system.

    If you can get a beautiful wedding band that is more durable and more affordable than the traditional white gold, why wouldn’t you? Put that money you’re saving into the honeymoon fund!

    And during the month of October, Tungsten World will be donating 10% of all sales of their breast cancer awareness jewelry to the American Cancer Society and Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

    Earlier this week I featured a stunning Autumn Harvest Wedding Inspiration Shoot, and today I wanted to feature more of the gorgeous bridal look. Because it was that good. The makeup, the hair, the red lips, the floral choices, the Claire Pettibone gown, the fab gold head piece, and of course the ring…it was spot on for a fall bride, or just fall beauty inspiration.

    Fall is my absolute favorite time of year: sweater weather, all things pumpkin, changing leaves, fall family fun – it’s the best. Even though fall weather hasn’t reached Los Angeles yet (still coming off what I hope is our last heat wave of the year), I’m getting in the spirit thanks in part to this stunning Autumn Bounty inspiration I’m sharing today.

    DIY Modern Geometric Party Decor + Printables | Lupa & Pepi on Oh Lovely Day

    Are you searching for DIY modern geometric party decor and printables? Then today is your lucky day! I’m thrilled to have the uber-talented Rachel, from Lupa & Pepi guest posting today – she’s sharing modern party decor ideas, complete will free printables and full instructions!

    Ciao! I’m Rachel and I design paper goods and party decor for Lupa & Pepi! I’m so thrilled and honored to write a post for Chandra while she’s enjoying some time settling in with her new baby! Chandra and I share a love of stationery. In fact, some of you may remember a blog post that Chandra wrote about a year ago where we collaborated on her moving announcements. Well, our collaboration inspired an entire matching set of personalized paper goods called Geometrica (available in Lupa & Pepi’s Shop!) which includes stationery and party paper goods too! So, when Chandra asked me to do a guest post, I knew that Geometrica party decor DIYs were in order!

    Every party can be spruced up with some matching party decor! Here are two DIYs (with downloadable instructions and templates!) that are super simple — in fact if you have some little ones running around, they could lend a hand with putting these together!

    DIY GEOMETRICA GARLAND BACKDROP

    This Geometrica backdrop is perfect for a photo booth background or would be wonderful as the backdrop for a dessert table! It’s easy to make — with just some folding and cutting you’ll have triangles that you can use to create a pattern inspired by the Geometrica triangle print. We used twine but if you’d like the triangles to appear like they are floating, use fishing line instead! The step-by-step instructions and printable templates for the garland backdrop are available for download here.

    DIY GEOMETRICA TREAT BOX

    With some ingredients that you probably already have at home (white paper, scissors and a glue stick!) you can quickly whip up some of these Geometrica Treat Boxes! They’re small enough for finger foods at a cocktail party or sweet treats displayed on a dessert bar. They can even be personalized with your guests’ names and used as place cards or favor containers! The step-by-step instructions and printable templates for the treat boxes are available for download here.

    The bold color palette from Geometrica invitations can also serve as wonderful inspiration for the rest of your party accoutrements — navy blue napkins, light blue paper straws, pink paper plates, etc.! Tie it all together with some Geometrica personalized coasters!! (They can say anything you want! They’re so fun!) And if you enjoyed these party decor DIYs, there’s more where that came from!

    Congratulations to the Fredrick family! Can’t wait to meet Baby Fredrick, Part Deux!

    Divertiti!

    xo, Rachel
