If you’re like us, you’ve been loving this image for a long time and may already have it pinned on your Pinterest. Well, we made a metallic flower strap like this one a while ago and it was super easy. (Ours was in silver.) We just sprayed some fake flowers (cheap ones can be fine, just watch for frayed edges on the petals) with a can of metallic spray paint and stitched them to a ribbon. (Though I do love the way the stems show on this one–our stems didn’t look that pretty unfortunately but if you got really nice fake flowers I bet they would!) Now you’re ready to fancy up that plain black dress, or even a white gown! **fair warning: I highly recommend doing this as far in advance as possible since I doubt you’ll be going for that can-of-spray-paint fragrance :)
One of the best things about a wedding is that it gives so many opportunities for families and friends to come together and celebrate, from engagement parties to bridal showers to the rehearsal dinner! Today, we're sharing some of the memories from Stephanie and Anton's casual rehearsal dinner, complete with some really fun Argentinian traditions.
BUY YOUR DRESS ON ONCE WED
This may seem bold, but to any couple searching for an amazing oceanside wedding venue, you can call the search off. We’ve found it for you: the beautifully remodelled Heritage House Resort, sitting on an unspoiled 37-acre nature sanctuary nestled along the Mendocino coast.
