    The latte bowl is having a wonderful design moment this year. Coming out at every store in the most beautiful hues, textures and styles. Grab a stack of coordinating bowls and bunches of your favorite flowers to finish off reception tables with a beautiful touch.     Using latte bowls as centerpieces gives a gorgeous presentation to flowers, allows you to use fewer stems (which saves money!) and they are low enough to allow guests to see each other and chat across the table.    1. Collect anywhere from 1-3 bowls per table in coordinating colors and designs. Place a small floral ball in water to soak for hours before putting the centerpieces together. You will need to make these on the day of your event, so enlist the help of a good friend to do the final put together and placement.     2. Carefully poke 3-4 stems of your favorite fully-blooming flowers into the balls.     3. Mist to keep florals alert just before table placement.       Project and Photos By: Victoria Hudgins

    Succulents are all the rage for weddings and parties, and with good reason: these little plants are not only completely adorable, but they're inexpensive and easy to work into just about any theme.     The popularity of succulents has made them available almost anywhere. We purchased ours for less than $3 each at a home improvement store!     There are many different types of succulents to choose from, and all require the same, easy care: a sunny window, and watering only when the soil is completely dry. We love how interesting different types of succulents look together, so we chose a variety for our project.     One of our favorite ways to see succulents is when they are paired with neutrals and rustic elements - they add a bit of a modern touch and subtle color to enhance the decor perfectly. We kept things super simple by keeping the succulent plants in their original plastic pots and wrapping kraft paper around each one.     Name tags were tied around each pot with a piece of unfussy twine.     The options are endless for how to display these tiny favors! We love the look of them arranged on a tiered stand...     ...or placed at each guests' spot at the table.     Remove the name tags and cluster the plants on a cake stand placed in the center of each table for an instant centerpiece...     ...or arrange them inside a wooden box for an ultra-pared down and rustic look. Your guests will love to take home these plants as a memento of your special day!     Photo By: Mary Swenson

(Remember you can always add more, so start with a little).     Step Four: Shake the bag until dust is evenly distributed and desired depth of color is achieved.     Step Five: Using tapemeasure, determine the spacing and width of stripes.     Step Six: Dip paintbrush in piping gel.     Step Seven: Using ruler as a guide to acheive a straight line, brush a generous amount of piping gel onto cake with short, even strokes.     Step Eight: Repeat on the right side of line.     Step Nine: Empty colored sprinkles into small cup.     Step Ten: Gently pour sprinkles onto cake.     Tip: You will have many extra sprinkles. Pour onto a sheet of parchment creased in the middle and pour back into small cup. Repeat process until all lines are finished.     Enjoy your chic, striped creation!

  • Project and Photos By: Chelsea Fuss   Hop Vine Centerpiece: Hop is a gorgeous vine for fall decorating. This centerpiece will look best on family style, rectangular tables. A farm table or rustic burlap, linen or muslin tablecloths are perfect for underneath this centerpiece.     Most likely you are familiar with Hops, the small clusters of flowers on these vines, as they are used to brew beer. The vines are gorgeous dried or fresh.     We used approximately eight vines per table, winding them down the center.     Warm Candle Glow: Candles were interspersed and secured in small antique tart tins. Anything with patina looks great for a fall table! Be cautious and use common sense when using candles. Most venues have rules about open flames, be sure and check with your venue coordinator.     Mini White Pumpkins: For coordinating favors, we tied olive green satin ribbons to tiny white pumpkins.     Rustic Autumn Wedding: This décor concept is perfect for the beer-loving couple and couldn't be more festive for a rustic autumn wedding.

    Photo booths are all the rage at weddings, and why not? They keep your guests entertained! Here's our step-by-step guide to make your own. 

    Materials Needed:

    Digital point-and-shoot camera Camera tripod  Remote shutter release  Backdrop Props 

    The Camera - Place a digital point-and-shoot camera on top of an extended tripod at eye level, tunr on the flash (unless you're having a spotlight) and connect a remote shutter release so guests can take their own photos. As backup, have polaroid cameras on standby. 

    Photos (from left to right): This Modern Romance and Anjuli 

    The Backdrop - Pick a colored or patterned piece of fabric that you can hang. If you're having an indoor wedding, pin it to a wall, or if you're having an outdoor wedding hang from curtain rods, secure with rope, and nail into the ground. 

    Photos (from left to right): Shelly Kroeger Photography and Birds of a Feather

    The Props - Go on a scavenger hunt! Look for props in your own home (like scarves, hats, glasses, frames). or make your own from paper (lips, mustaches, ties). Even provide chalkboards or dry erase boards for guests to write messages on. 

    Photo: This Modern Romance 

    The Location - Choose an area that doesn't obstruct the flow of the reception, but is still easily accessible. If you're having an indoor reception, consider a hallway or corner of the ballroom, or if you're having an outdoor wedding, consider next to the DJ that way guests can pose to the beat. 

    Photo: This Modern Romance

    The Extras - After the wedding is all said and done, you're back from your honeymoon, and all the gifts are unwrapped and put away, go through the camera's SD card and save the ones you'd like to put into a scrapbook. Those memories will last a lifetime!

    You’ve spent so much time planning your wedding events, so it’s essential that your guests have enough notice so they can plan to attend! There’s a fine line to giving your guests enough advanced notice and sending your invitations too far ahead of time so that people forget to RSVP. Here are a few guidelines.

    Set up a wedding website right away. As soon as you set a date, create a wedding website so that you’ll have a home base for all of your wedding and travel information. You can send out the link to your guests via email, or include it on your save-the-date.

    Save-the-dates If you’re having a destination wedding where most of your guests will have to travel, we recommend sending your save-the-dates at least eight months in advance – even up to a year if possible. You’ll want to include all the pertinent travel and accommodations information so that your guests can book right away. If you’re having a hometown wedding with little travel involved, send your save-the-dates at least six months in advance.

    Bridal Shower Invitations and Other Pre-Wedding Events Bridal shower invitations are usually mailed out three to four weeks in advance – same goes for engagement parties. Set the RSVP date for one to two weeks in advance of the big day.

    Wedding Invitations Wedding invitations should be mailed out six to eight weeks before the wedding date. Ask your guests to return their RSVP cards by at least two weeks, preferably three, before the wedding date so that you and your vendors have enough time to create table assignments, escort cards, etc.  

    Rehearsal Dinner and Post-Wedding Brunch The rehearsal dinner invitations should be mailed out separately a few days – no more than a week - following the wedding invitations so guests can make travel plans accordingly. If you’re having a post-wedding brunch that everyone is invited to, feel free to include a card with your wedding invitations and on your wedding website, too.

  • Project and Photos by Brittni Mehlhoff   Pop the question to your bridesmaids with these teeny tiny gift boxes, with a surprise message (and gift) inside.     This DIY will help get your potential bridesmaids excited for the big day and you can customize the painted birch boxes to your wedding colors in a pinch. This is a great way to give bridesmaids a piece of jewelry, like a ring, that they can wear to the wedding and cherish long after you say, "I do".     Materials:  Small Round Birch Craft Boxes Acrylic Paint Paint Brush 'Will You Be My Bridesmaid' print outs Crinkle Paper Scissors Velvet Ribbon Fresh Flowers, like Delphinium (optional) How To:     1. First, paint the base and lid of the box with acrylic paint in fun patterns and shapes. Wait for the paint to dry.     2. Next, cut a piece of velvet ribbon between four and seven inches long, and glue one end to the inside of the lid.     3. Wrap the other end of the ribbon through the ring and glue the loose end further down on the back of the ribbon. This will create a secure loop to hold the ring, so it doesn't fall out of the box. It will also lift the ring from the box when the lid is opened.     4. Next, add a strip of paper to the the ring and ribbon that pops the question. You can create these strips very easily with your home computer and a printer. The font used in the example is called Housegrind and is free for personal use, right here.     5. Lastly, add crinkle paper to the box and nestle the ring inside before tucking in the ribbon and paper message and putting the lid back on. Present as a gift to your potential bridesmaids and cross your fingers.
