Inspiration: A rainbow of vintage typewriters

A vintage typewriter can tie your vintage-style wedding together nicely. And what guest wouldn’t love to type a sweet note to the bride and groom on one of these beautiful typewriters.

Bonus: with a little searching, you can find a typewriter in nearly any color to match your wedding decor.

Find Ties for Your Guy’s Guys

My groom wore a suit for our wedding, and we’ve noticed this trend with a LOT of weddings. It seems that, when the groom and his men wear ties, the bride often is tasked with finding ties for the whole group. I know we scoured Saks, Macy’s JCPenney, a few suit shops and several online retailers looking for just the right ties.

Luckily, there’s an online retailer who offers silk ties –
* by color family
* for $15 bucks each
* with $5.99 flat shipping rate

They even sort them by skinny, trendy or tradition. Score.

I wish I’d found The Tie Bar before my wedding.

Just a Spot of Color

I love the look of a crinoline poking out from under a wedding gown. Even better is a crinoline in an eye-popping hue. Seriously? Fuchia, aqua, scarlet?!

So, of course I am OMG-so-in-love with Wedding Cabaret‘s work. Of course she’s on Etsy, and she hand-dyes your crinoline for a cool $25 (naturally, the cost of the crinoline is separate). If I was wearing a different dress, I’d seriously get 2 — one for the ceremony and one for the reception.

Now THAT would be a fantastic “something blue.”

Hooray! Hooray to Wedding Bee!

Thanks Weddingbee!

Never Thought I’d Drool Over Shoes

I’ve already got my wedding shoes. Well… I’ve already got 3 separate pairs to be worn on our wedding day. I started with an ivory patent pair, then got a great pair of green leather Ferragamos, and recently added a sweet pair of black satin sling backs.

But, if I didn’t already have those 3, I’d HAVE to get one of these pairs:

Perfect for a purple wedding!
With a shorter dress — so hot!
Look at the toe detail on this beauty! Perfect for a vintage-themed wedding.
And these flats? They may end up being purchased with my holiday bonus. LOVE!

Swoon.

Kick up Your Heels

Oh pink. Lovely, sweet, delicious pink.

I wish we were including pink in our wedding palette, even salmon would do.

Since we’re not, I’m simply swooning over these hot! pink shoes from Forever 21. They’d be the perfect pop under an a-line satin gown, and would look stunning in your wedding photos.

If pink isn’t your thing, these babies also come in aqua (hello, Tiffany Blue wedding!)

The beauty of them, for budget minded brides, is the pricetag… $20.80!
