Pinterest Board: Destination Wedding Ideas
Gift your destination wedding guests with stylish, completely customized luggage tags that unify them as a group and serve as keepsakes long after the festivities wind down. Mail them to your guests before they begin their trek, or hand them out after the wedding, before they jet off for home.

At a garden shower, serve crunchy vegetables (straight from the garden or store-bought) complete with their own dip: buttermilk-peppercorn, roasted pepper and eggplant, or toasted curry. Their bowls—hollowed-out slices of baguettes in pumpernickel, plain, or everything—are meant to be eaten too.
Pinterest Board: Balloon Wedding Decor
Let guests know they’re walking into a good time by filling the foyer of your reception space with balloons reminiscent of the fizz in sparkling vino. Ask your photographer to hang out in the wings and capture everyone’s arrival on film.
Pinterest Board: Paper Flowers
To make these continuous petal flowers, first make the stamen and cut petal strips and leaves. Then firmly wrap the strip of petals around the stamen or around itself, and secure with floral tape. Practice so the strip doesn't slip, or cut it into shorter lengths and attach in stages. Then attach leaves and shape petals.

Turn basic sugar cookies into elegant favors by stacking them to resemble miniature wedding cakes. To make these sweet treats, spread each cookie with royal icing and assemble once the frosting is set. Then, use small dabs of icing to secure each layer and hold the tower intact. Package in clear plastic boxes, and tie on a hole-punched card-stock tag with ribbon.
Pinterest Board: Peaches and Cream Weddings
Match the soft, pretty feel of a peaches and cream color palette with silk and chiffon dresses that feature fluttery petals and swishy layers. Deck out your bridesmaids in an array of succulent peaches, and highlight your maid of honor in a creamy floor-length number.
Pinterest Board: Colorful Bridesmaid Dresses
Bridesmaids at this Real Wedding wore dresses in neutral hues and different styles from Zara, J.Crew, and Vera Wang Lavender Collection and carried a simple bouquet of baby's breath for a cohesive look. Each dress was shortened from floor length to tea length for the occasion.
Instead of the traditional wedding cake, treat guests to their own tiered "cake." For these fudge treats, which can be made with white or dark chocolate, cookie cutters form bite-size layers resembling those on a wedding cake. Pink sanding sugar serves as icing, and paper doilies enhance the dainty display.
