Girls Get Your Guns!
Glue guns that is! This project couldn’t get any easier, plus you’ll end up with a dazzling hairpiece to show off at the wedding or for everyday wear. All you need is a piece of cloth cut in the shape of your desired design, a hair clip or comb (available at most drug stores or arts & crafts stores), gem stickers (you can find them in craft stores, in the sticker/scrapbook aisle), and some glue.

Sweet & Simple
Another super quick and easy DIY jewelry tutorial we found on In Honor of Design’s blog, requires just 4 supplies” wood furniture buttons available at JoAnns Craft stores for $1.87 per 30 pack, some nail polish, earring flat backs available at Michaels Craft stores $2.99 for 60 pieces, and some super glue. You can paint the wooden buttons as pictured for the Kate Spade look described in IHOD's blog article, or create your own design (in your wedding colors perhaps?) and glue on the studs to complete. Voila: instant style!

DIY Recycled Necklace Head Piece
This project requires a tiny bit more skill as you will be using a needle and invisible thread instead of glue. I had a lot of bling-y necklaces from being a bridesmaid several times and selected two that looked good together. Next, I purchased a spool of silver ribbon for $1 at the Dollar Tree and cut 2 pieces the same length (enough to fit around my head and tie easily into a bow behind). Next I used a needle and thread to first sew one necklace in the middle of one ribbon (making loops around the entire length of the necklace) and then doing the same with the other. Next, I tied the ribbons (with attached necklaces) together in a knot at the end of both necklaces and then tied them around my head for a supper classy look.

Hope you find some inspiration from these fun and easy projects! Love, VW

Wedding Trends that Wont Get Old

  Smaller Guest Lists Let love sweep you off your feet, not a room full of people to greet! After months (or maybe even years!) of planning, you will be surprised at how quickly your wedding day flies by. At the end of it all you will likely feel exhausted. . . and hungry! One way to truly savor the day is to spend it with the people you love the most. So don’t extend an invitation to anyone you feel obligated to or someone who you worry might be offended if left out, or any distant relative you don’t speak to on a regular basis. A smaller guest list will eliminate stress and allow you to spend more time and money entertaining those closest to you. Your wedding day will feel more intimate and warm surrounded by the people who share in your everyday happiness. Live Bands/Entertainment One more trend we love is live entertainment. This doesn’t mean you have to do away with the DJ--an experienced MC can be a great asset to assist with your event schedule,
