Style Find of the week:

Our jaws definitely dropped when we stumbled over this unique bride and bridesmaids style! In a totally interesting and puzzlingly gorgeous decision, the bride put her bridesmaids in white, and opted for a blush colored gown. While the traditional colors for the bride and bridesmaids here are totally flip-flopped…we kind of love it!

Wedding of the week:

Maybe it’s my Pacific Northwestern roots, but I love just about any wedding that takes place in Seattle or Portland. Call me biased, sure. But I bet you’ll also love this totally cozy and fun Portland restaurant wedding, featured this week on Snippet and Ink. The bride wore a short, vintage-y Sarah Seven dress, her bridesmaids wore sequins, and their reception was a cozy and intimate soiree at one of their fave restaurants. What’s not to love?

DIY of the week:

Now this is a DIY we can definitely get behind — we love anything that will jazz up your technology a bit! For your bridal shower or an intimate get-together with your bridesmaids, gift them with personalized handmade iPhone or Android cases. Believe it or not, it’s actually really easy and cheap! While the tutorial shows the DIY with cute patterned paper, we think photos would be great way to personalize the cases for your besties.
