    In my bouquet, I want lots of yellow with some green, white, and a tiny bit of red mixed in there! I want billy balls, cabbage roses, succulents, spider mums and big yellow peonies. I also want some poppies for a splash of red, and cotton, cuz I’m southern, of course!

    I’m so excited about my flowers because I went into my floral appointment thinking “I don’t know much about flowers, I hope this isn’t going to be a disaster,” and it was GREAT. The woman I worked with totally helped me out and my green, black, silver, white wedding will now include: big white hydrangea, white enemones, white roses, silver brunia berry, dusty miller, and black privey berry with camellia leaves. A lot of this is still over my head, but I’m BEYOND excited about the mix in texture and the coordination with what I thought might be a difficult color scheme!

    omgeeee! so excited about this giveaway. my bouquet is going to be whites and off whites of ranunculus (my fave), garden roses, spray roses, hydrangeas, lambs ear, berries, lisianthus, and peonies if the lovely ladies at tre bella can get them! i am too excited about this! i really love the nature of the white bouquet..

    for my maids though, they will have an orange and peach mix of the same type of flowers, which i am also totally excited about. gotta love a little extra color!

  5. avatar Sonia Marie reply

    These are so gorgeous! My flowers are all whites & light green! Hydrangeas..tulips…white roses and ranunculus! My bouquet is being wrapped in twine..My bridesmaids are just simple light green hydrangeas wrapped in twine!

  6. avatar Cami reply

    Oh my goodness gracious! I am SO excited about this giveaway and I’m crossing my fingers {and toes} that I win! {eek!}
    My bouquet will be peach cabbage roses, white peonies and hopefully a few of those adorable tiny wild flower daisies, that I picked on the side of the road when I was little. I’m hoping to wrap it with some lace from my grandmothers dress or veil and finishing it off with a big satin bow. :o)

  7. avatar Allyson L. reply

    My bouquet is going to be made up of local flowers from the farmer’s market. There will be sunflowers, because those are my favorite, and hopefully milkweed will be available still. I also want to incorporate purple. It will most likely be wrapped with either burlap or black ribbon with a brooch. I would love to add a bouquet tile to honor my grandmothers.

  8. avatar Megan Fyffe reply

    I am doing all peonies. with grey bouquet wraps. I had an adorable pictures of my grandparents put into a charm to attach to my bouquet. I love the idea of adding something special that you can keep and treasure long after the big day.

    Just wanted to say god luck to all and that Paloma’s Nest is AMAZING! I was lucky enough to win the Southern Wedding Ring Bearer Bowl contest from them and it is one of the details I am most excited about for my wedding.

  10. avatar Emily Franklin reply

    I am so excited about this give away! I adore Paloma’s Nest! My fiance and I are even using one of the ring bowls by them! My bouquet is one of the things I’m most excited about! I will have white hydrangeas, tied together with burlap and twine! But the best part, in my eyes, is what I’m including on the bouquet, which is small picture frames of loved ones of mine and my fiance’s who have passed, so that they will be able to walk me down the aisle on my wedding day! I wouldn’t have it any other way! I wil definitely be crossing my fingers that I win this gorgeous bouquet tile!

  11. avatar Emily Franklin reply

    I also tweeted about this giveaway! So, so excited!

  12. avatar Brittany reply

    Wow! In love! with Palomas Nest! My bouquet was inspired by SW and my family! I am having peonies, david austin roses, billy balls, Lisianthus, Ranunculus, mixed succulents and dusty miller! All tied together with beautiful ribbon and lace that my grandmother (who passed away last year) collected for me, that she wanted to make my wedding dress out of. I know she would be proud :)

    Just tweeted from all the way Down Under :) love xxx

  14. avatar AmandaR reply

    Well, well, I do think this Palomas Nest bouquet tile is exactly what I need to complete my bridal bouquet! My daddy passed away when I was 16 so I have known for a long time I would include a “charm” on my bouquet in his memory. I have two items in mind: 1) a gold locket he gave me for Christmas the year before he passed; and/or 2) the angel pin every member of our family wore while he was sick. I think the bouquet tile would be a great way to put in words what those “charms” mean to me. My dad’s cousin is doing my floral design (all the way from Birmingham!) and we have decided to use big, fluffy white peonies, with a few pale, pale coral garden roses, and Queen Anne’s lace from my mom’s farm. I also think the Palomas Nest bouquet tiles would be cool on each of the bridesmaids’ bouquets, with their name or a quote or a bible verse or something of significance to me and that BM. Hmmmm…..I like where this thought is going….!!

    These are beautiful and sweet! .I have been excited about my flowers from the beginning and cannot wait to see it all come together. My overall vision of the flowers we have decided to call: natural, “organized randomness” and modern romanticism. I literally cannot wait to see them. I am having a late Feb wedding so the flowers are those that are available at the very very early part of spring. It could snow…it could be warm. We will see! My colors are navy, white, and chartreuse but mostly whites for the flowers. My bouquet will have white anemones, white sweet peas (my favorite!)), white duchess peonies (amazing!), fever few snowballs, white “Football” Mums, and some green foliage. I think it will be a sweet, a little whimsical, and completely romantic. We are wrapping them in simple Navy ribbons so these tiles would be perfect to add! My bridesmaids have bouquets that are similar but with a little more of the green in them. Bells of Ireland, mini hydrangeas, viburnum with some kale for that natural part of my vision.

  18. avatar Kathy reply

    I plan on having an all pink bouquet with soft, romantic flowers like peonies, garden roses, and sweet pea! My wrap is going to be a piece of kimono fabric that I brought back with me from Japan where my fiance and I spent several years during our dating years.

One of my favorite things about Southern weddings is seeing bridesmaids rock adorable dresses and cowboy boots. Somehow Southern ladies can beautifully pull off formal attire with their own down-to-earth style. When I saw the jewelry from Peach Tree Lane, I was immediately reminded of this perfect balance. Their pieces combine the pretty shapes and details of some of our favorite flowers with down-to-earth and whimsical colors and construction.

Whitney loved Peach Tree Lane’s chrysanthemum necklace and I couldn’t help but fall for their lily flower rings. The bright colors mixed with our favorite neutral tones won us over!

Peach Tree Lane does earring sets, too! They’re perfect for bridesmaid gifts or to add to the ensemble on your big day. The best part? You know they’ll look cute topping off a cowboy-booted outfit.

To Enter: Visit Peach Tree Lane’s shop and explore. Then come back here and tell us what your favorite item is and how you’d incorporate it into your Southern style. Want another entry? Tweet “I entered to win a Peach Tree Lane earring set from @iloveswmag!” – let leave another comment here telling us you did so!

Win: Two sets of Peach Tree Lane’s mustard, grey and ivory flower post earrings, perfect to present to your bridesmaids!

    Cuuute (and affordable!) accessories! I think I’d choose a multi-pack for my girls, like the “Peachy Keen” hairpin, rose studs & chrysanthemum ring set. I’ve loved the Southern style to allow girls to choose their dresses based on color schemes, so a multi-pack like that would allow the same continuity-without-being-identical feel.

    The Bridesmaids Set of 5 Cream Flower Peony Vintage Inspired Necklaces would look so good with our navy dresses! Just the perfect touch of rustic chic for our wedding!

    Oooohhh! Cute! I love it all! (Who doesn’t love floral accessories?!?!) I think the coral chrysanthemum earrings win for me, but I would LOVE to wear anything from this shop. Thanks for introducing us to a great etsy store! (In time for Christmas shopping!)

  7. avatar Amanda Zerra reply

    My favorite item is the ‘Large Pink-Melon Chrysanthemum Vintage Style Necklace’. This necklace could match anything, whether it was a sexy black dress for a night out or a fun colorful outfit. It’s simple, bright and FUN! There are so many ways to incorporate this into my Southern Style ;)

  8. avatar Vanessa reply

    My fave item is the Purple-Lavender Lotus Flower Necklace Vintage Style. Who doesn’t love purple and lotus flowers? I would incorporate both items into my wedding via table settings and colour scheme.

  9. avatar Madelynne Miller reply

    I love the green matte peony flower necklace! It would look PERFECT with my girls’ shades of green Lula Kate dresses! I think the grey vintage style flower necklace would be adorable too!! Our wedding colors are yellow, grey, green, and white and almost all of her accessories would match!

  10. avatar Madelynne Miller reply

    Just tweeted about this contest! I think I’ll be buying something regardless!

  11. avatar Katie reply

    I love the Cream-Ivory Flower Post Stud Earrings, Vintage Style-Honeysuckle. This is the perfect color for any bridesmaid dress and well, any occasion whatsoever. You can never go wrong with a stud earring and the honeysuckle just adds that extra Southern flare!

    I love everything from the shop, but the “Grey Chrysanthemum Cabochon Vintage Style Ring” is a favorite.

  15. avatar Rachel W. reply

    I just tweeted!!! Love Peach Tree Lane! Their designs really do remind me of the little icing toppers on top of a cupcake :) so whimsical and sweet. And the colors are gorgeous.

  16. avatar Kathy reply

    My favorite item is the Mum and Rose Flower Post Studs in Cream, Pale Pink, Lavender…they are so soft and pretty! My colors are pink and purple and my bridesmaids are wearing pink matching dresses. There are four of them so I would order two sets and have 2 wear the pink and two wear the lavendar ones. The flower girl and I would both wear the cream ones….so cute! I love a little bit of mismatching.

  17. avatar liz rotz reply

Howdy ladies and gents! We’ve presented some of our favorite Southern finds over the past month and gave you the chance to win them! Have you been absolutely dying to know if you’ve won? Well, hold on just one minute more, because first, we just have to say:

That’s better! Now, you know how much we love monograms around here. From the looks of it, you do, too! We love Southern Proper Monograms for their customization and huge selection of sizes. I’d love to see a newlywed couple’s initials hanging on church doors or on the entrance to the reception site. For the chance to win, we asked you to tell us how you would use the monograms in your wedding.

Congratulations to Linden who won two custom monograms and said, “Oh how I love monograms! I think I’ve loved monogramming EVERYTHING since preschool when I had my pink backpack monogrammed with my name…. (or maybe even earlier with the bloomers with my name- haha). Anyway, I’d use them in flower wreaths on the church doors!!!”

Ain’t nothin’ more appropriate for a Southern bash than a cowboy and cowgirl cocktail! These glasses from Rolf Glass caught our eye immediately and we had to give you guys a chance to win a set! We asked you guys to tell us all about the cowboys and girls in your wedding party.

Ashley S. would be happy to know that she won this giveaway! She said, “OMG…if the contest wasn’t screaming out my name idk what else can. Our theme is very western. we both grew up in very rodeo families. My wonderful maid of honor is my amazing sister. She has been there for me through everything. My wonderful fiances sister will be up there and she is above and beyond my best friend. We have been through some crazy things whether a little intoxicated or sober as can be. My best friend mady will be up there as well. She has almost caused me to go to jail on a handful of times. We have been through so much together including her brother committing suicide seven months ago…I know she is always there for me just like i was there for her during those rough times. And the groomsmen are a handful of a story of there own.”

We’re big fans of paper products and we knew that The Green Kangaroo’s selection of invites, save the dates, and programs was impressive! We loved their classic ribbon program and had to share it with you! We asked you which part of the ceremony you’re most looking forward to.

We’re happy for the winner, Katherine, who said, “I’m most excited about our first look!! I think the emotions of the entire day will be captured in that one moment. I get chills just thinking about it!”

Starboard Clothing Co.’s bow ties are handmade, colorful and soft — as some of the best bows are, in my opinion! We couldn’t resist giving away four of their darling bows in a giveaway celebrating the arrival of V4!

Big congrats to Philip M, who said, “The Toile Beau is amazing! I’d most likely pair it with a white or yellow oxford button-down and some khaki chinos. It’s the kind of bowtie that really stands out, but not an obnoxious sort of way. It’s the perfect finishing touch to an outfit and would be an excellent addition to any wardrobe.”

Keep an eye out for more giveaways coming soon! Congratulations to all our winners! You’ll be getting an email from me soon.
