Drying Herbs For Your Wedding

The newest issue of Kinfolk Magazine has  a great story by Amy Merrick about drying herbs during the fall season. Although flowers will always be the most popular choice for wedding decor, I love the idea of taking a more hands on approach to your arrangements, bouquets, boutonnieres, etc by gathering and drying herbs in your home or garage.

It’s something I definitely want to try once we have a little more space in our own home. Check back tomorrow for a tutorial on how to create boutonnieres out of dried herbs!

Fall Wedding Ideas

Yes. Autumn can be rich and decadent and even lush. As we’ve started filling up our Once Wed Pinterest  page this week(yes, we’re on Pinterest now :) with all sorts of fall wedding ideas, we’ve been so inspired by the richness of this season. There are a lot of ways to incorporate fall wedding ideas into your own wedding but I’d never thought of this approach before…

Graceful Big Sur Elopement

Giorgia and Giovanni traveled from Italy to elope in Big Sur, CA at Post Ranch Inn. Elopements are some of our favorite types of weddings to feature on Once Wed. We just adore the natural scenery, gorgeous Jenny Packham dress and beautiful photography of this wedding. Are you looking for inspiration to make your wedding elopement special? Be sure to browse through our real weddings gallery to find more images of elopements.
