In anticipation for all this beautiful fall weather coming our way, Lora Kelley sent over this lovely bit of inspiration for any brides looking to get married outside with a rustic wedding twist. Although strapless has been the most popular neckline for the last decade, I’m excited to see designers offer more neckline options like this beautiful Carmen Marc Valvo gown. The delicate cap sleeves combined with the soft and light material keep the entire dress very chic, but still casual all at the same time.

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!
