Friday Favorites: 02.08.13

{One of my favorite non-wedding blogs has a series called Friday Favorites that I always enjoy reading.  I have found so many fun things through her blog and I love the idea so I am snagging it and mixing it up a little to be (mostly) wedding related.  Hope you’ll join me every Friday for my favorite gowns (bridal and bridesmaids), favorite bouquet, favorite boutonniere (can’t forget the guys!), favorite cake, favorite decor (could be anything pretty), and favorite extra (something wonderful!}

Favorite Gown: I love this gorgeous silk dupioni number from Lea-Ann Belter.  Her name is Emily which I thought it was fitting for my first Friday Favorite post!  I love the front but that back…oh, the back!  *sigh*

Favorite Bouquet: I saw this stunner on Style Me Pretty over the summer and haven’t forgotten it!  I love the mixed textures and the rich colors and the non-traditional floral elements.  This would be just so lovely for a late fall, outdoor wedding in the woods!

Favorite Boutonniere: I am a little biased as this is from one of my weddings but I just loved the big succulent that Eva from EcoFlora used for Jason’s boutonniere – they were used throughout the wedding as well.  So pretty and we’re seeing them more and more – I love the organic feel they lend to the florals.


Favorite Cake: Can you believe those flowers are all sugar?  Pure art!


Favorite Decor:  Hydrangea blooms broken down into smaller pieces and put in tall vases with water.  Lovely (and not overly expensive) way to add color to an aisle!

Favorite Extra: In case you need a smile to start your weekend – how cute is this little guy?  We’ve all made that face when the stethoscope is cold!


Have a wonderful Friday and a fantastic weekend!  We’re off this weekend – season starts in a couple of weeks so we’re enjoying the down time with a little sledding!  Winter Storm Nemo seems to have skipped most of Ohio but to all my friends in the NE, stay safe and warm!
