Forgive me for my absence. I planned to write some posts Sunday evening and have them scheduled for this week, but I got sick Thursday night and have been miserable ever since. I was in bed all day yesterday, and had a big paper to write for today. So, I'm going to try to get some posts written tonight, but you'll have to bear with me. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, though! I know I did. Even though I was sick for a lot of the break, it was SO nice to be surrounded by family and spend a whole 5 days with David!
Throughout my planning process so far I've noticed that I now find wedding inspiration everywhere! I love just walking around Hobby Lobby or Michaels because I always end up coming up with a new project or idea. I've found so many things lately that I want to incorporate somehow, but haven't decided how yet, and I'm not letting myself buy them until I do. So, who better to turn to than you guys!
I found these gorgeous lanterns at Hobby Lobby, which I'm thinking we could hang over our head table:
I don't know if you can see in the first picture, but there's a glass candle holder and a pillar candle in the middle. I guess it might be a little scary to have a candle hanging above our heads, but I think they'd be so pretty!
I also found this bulletin type board that I absolutely love:
I think it'd be pretty easy to make if I was able to find a fun frame like that, but what would I use it for? A bigger version would be awesome for escort cards, but we're only using place cards for our family members so we aren't using escort cards (more on that soon) - Any other ideas?
Then I decided to stop by Dollar Tree and pick up some of their rose petals after reading this post, and I found these frames. I think they're so adorable and want to use them somehow, but I'm not sure what to put in them! I could always use engagement pictures, but I'm trying to think of something more creative. I just love the look of frames hanging from a ribbon.
Lastly, my mom and I were at Dillons picking up some stuff and happened to see these cakes on display in their bakery area. I had no idea they made such unique cakes. We've already decided on our cake, but I thought they might serve as inspiration to some of you! I would think they'd be pretty budget friendly too.
(You know I loved the tulle on the top of this one!)
Aren't those pretty?! Who knew you could get such an elaborate cake at a grocery store?
Do you seem to find wedding inspiration everywhere? What are your favorite places to look for inspiration?
