Good news is, you have the most important mobile wedding tool already downloaded. Bad news is, you’re wondering if there are any other ways to incorporate social media into your wedding.

So what’s left?

A whole lot of planning, that’s what.

The bride and groom at their unique pop-up wedding by Emily Wren Photography

My my, do we have such an awesome wedding treat for you brides today! You know how pop-ups are all the rage these days — everything from pop-up restaurants to pop-up boutiques are a fast-growing trend for in-the-know city dwellers. Well, this couple took that idea a bit further and had their own pop-up wedding!

What does that mean? Well think spontaneity, a slightly boho vibe, and LOTS of fun! Here’s a few words from the fantastic photographer, Emily Wren, about how Jesse and Kim’s unique pop-up restaurant wedding went down:

“Kim & Jesse are a really fun and vivacious couple, and their wedding really reflected their personalities! The wedding was a pop-up wedding in Rittenhouse Square, in downtown Philadelphia. Their guests convened in an open part of the park and handed individual flowers to Kim making her bridal bouquet.  After the ceremony the couple and their guests paraded with live music and big hand-made “Just Married” sign over to the restaurant, Twenty Manning where they had dinner and a karaoke party.”

Um, a restaurant reception with a karaoke party? Count me IN! Read on to see more of this totally unique pop-up restaurant wedding!

6 Unbelievably Fun Printed Bridesmaid Dress Styles That Will Give Your Wedding a Unique Edge


Ryan Ray Photography via Style Me Pretty

Lately brides have been experimenting with what their bridesmaids are wearing in their wedding instead of the traditional solid color matching dresses, and we love it! With all the new trends though it can definitely be hard to decide what your favorite girls should wear. I wanted to take a close look at one my favorite new trends, printed bridesmaid dresses! I absolutely love the idea of adding patterns to bridesmaid dresses. If you are going with a more subdued color scheme for your big day, printed bridesmaid dresses can be a fun way to add a pop of color or an eye catching look. Hopefully looking closer at this new trend will help you decide what your ladies should wear.

Once you have picked out some awesome patterned dresses for your bridesmaids it can be tough to decide exactly how to accessorize. What I would recommend when picking accessory colors is to find ones that complement yet contrast your girls dresses. For example, if they wear really bright floral dresses than I would recommend picking a nude or pastel color that can be found in their dress. If your girls are wearing two toned stripes or polka dots with more subdued coloring I would suggest picking a fun bold and bright color for accessories. Whatever you chose be sure to have fun with it and I am sure your girls will look gorgeous on your wedding day.
