Google+ Get the Look :: Dreamy Watercolor Wedding - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Y’all is it bad that my arms hurt a little from carrying boxes full of magazines? We’ve just sent off a ton of glossy pages and now I think my arms need a rest. Luckily, I had some fun product searching to do (one of my favorite things!) and got to put this post together. We’ll leave the weight training for later.

Natalie + Wade’s wedding (here + here) is one we love for not only it’s dreamy colors and venue, but for the customizable details that reflect their personality. If you want to get the same look, you’re in the right place!

A. Reminders of the new couple’s love and marriage were abounding at N + W’s wedding! We like how zinc letters acted as table decor.

B. Offering a basket full of parasols was a clever way to keep the sun out of guests faces while looking mighty pretty.

C. Natalie + Wade’s family and friends traveled from Tennessee and Texas to attend their Florida wedding. We think providing mixed CDs of the couple’s favorite love songs for the drive back was a brilliant idea! Package them in kraft holders like these. We also love these from Kraft and Jute — they have stitching on the sides!

D. We loved seeing photos of Natalie + Wade’s family strung throughout the reception site. Get the same effect with some twine and cute clothespins like the stained ones we found here.

E. The smallest details are often the ones that stand out to us. We love how the couple chose to mix and match ribbons and lace for their escort cards and tags. We think this thin velvet number is too perfect.

F. We think Natalie + Wade’s “Here Comes the Bride” banner was adorable. Make your own with some burlap, ribbon, paint and stencils from a craft store or buy one here.

G. Natalie had the right idea when she added a wreath to her hair adornments. After you take the veil off for the reception, you’ll still look fab with a sparkly headband. We love this one from Twigs and Honey.

H. The mixed and matched bridesmaids dresses at Natalie + Wade’s wedding were a wonderful way to coordinate ‘maids with different styles. We love this option from J.Crew in graphite.

I. There’s no denying that Natalie’s sparkly bow shoes were a hit! Follow in her footsteps with the same pair from Kate Spade. If you’re looking for something a bit different but equally scintillating, might we suggest this pair from BHLDN or this pair?

J. Wishing trees are a sweet way for guests to give you well-wishes, advice, thanks, or cute notes during the wedding. Provide some tags for them to fill in. We think these are adorable.

K. The hanging jars of flowers and tea lights caught our eye at the ceremony and reception. Achieve the same look with mason jars and pink ribbon — just be sure that they’re well secure and won’t fall! (We suggest browsing online for more secure wire hangers that you can attach ribbon to. Try here and here.)

L. The glittering banner at N + W’s reception caught our eye! Put a little sparkle in your guests’ eyes with a similar one, like this. Or maybe you’d like to make your own? We like these simple instructions.

M. Store favors or programs in a rustic wooden box or crate. We love this one for it’s chalkboard side!

N. Natalie decided to include a bouquet tile with her gorgeous blooms. The little addition can include a meaningful quote or your married monogram and wedding date.
