  • With the cooler weather and changing leaves, fall weddings are the perfect opportunity for the groom and his men to get a little more creative with their wedding day attire. Tweeds! Cardigans! Plaid shirts! Here's 7 fun examples of groomsmen looks we love for autumn. 

    1. CHECKED SHIRTS

    2. TWEED, TWEED, TWEED

    Heftier fabrics like courduroy and tweed will keep you warmer for an outdoor ceremony and add texture to photos. We love the way this groom paired his vest and jacket with the palette of reds and cranberries worn by his groomsmen. Perfect for Fall! Photo by Ryan Ray

    3. CHAMBRAY

    4. V-NECK SWEATERS

    V-neck sweaters and collared shirts are a polished casual look—why not bring it into your wedding party? We love the way this group differentiated the best man and groom with suspenders and a cardigan. Photo by Landon Jacob

    5. HUNTER GREEN ACCENTS

    6. CARDIGANS FOR EVERYONE 

    From cable knit to shawl collar, we love the way each guy in this wedding party is showing off his personality with a different kind of cardigan. The overall look is cozy and just a touch eclectic—perfect for a modern rustic wedding! Photo by Ryan Ray

    7. DARK JEANS 

    Normally we'd say jeans are an absolute no for any wedding party, but how cool does this group look? We love that they stuck with a darker wash and accessorized with tweed vests. Photo by The Nichols

  • Photo by Taylor Lord Photography    Your girls worked hard to help you prepare for your wedding day -- now it's their turn to get ready! Indulge them while they prep for your I Do's with a thoughtful gift they can use on your wedding day and beyond. Five of our favorite ideas follow below. Stories You Might Also Like: Monogram Bridesmaid Gifts and Bow Gifts for Bridesmaids.    1. Pretty Robes  Matching putting-on-your-making ensembles is a fun way to bond the morning of your wedding. Our current favorite places to find pretty, feminine robes: Plum Pretty Sugar, Love Ophelia, and Journelle.    2. Monogrammed Oxfords  Oversized oxford button downs are another fun morning-of wardrobe option -- and they'll make for comfy sleepwear for your maids further down the road. Shop the men's section of department stores for a matching set, then take them to your local monogram shop to have them personalized. There's also several Etsy Vendors that will take care of the whole process for you -- we like the looks of Pretty Personal Gifts, Fine Thread Art, and Shop Mememto.    3. Garment Bags  She needs something to store her bridesmaid gown in, but a nice piece of luggage to use on business trips wouldn't hurt either. Equal parts stylish and chic, the options at Jen Darling Bags are fun choice.   4. Cosmetic Pouches   Gift each girl a roomy nylon or vinyl pouch to store their beauty supplies. The C. Wonder Monogram shop has some nice options, and Stephanie Johnson is our go-to for a plethora of on-trend sizes and styles.    5. Tube Socks  Don't have the budget to splurge on oxfords or robes? No worries -- cute pink-accented tube socks are a fun (and more affordable!) clothing option. We love the set over on Before The I Do's.

  • Whether your ceremony is long or short, you want your guests to be comfortable during the proceedings. Gift your nearest and dearest with useful items pre-ceremony to make sure this important event is even more memorable and enjoyable.

    Ceremony Programs
    Your guests will have a lot of questions during the ceremony. Who’s in the bridal party? What types of rituals should I expect? What’s that song? Answer your guests’ questions by providing them with programs – or post a sign that includes all of the pertinent information.

    Something to Drink

    In warmer weather, provide your guests with a refreshment either before the ceremony, or if drinks are allowed in your venue, during the event. Bottled water is a good bet, since it’s in a sealable container that’s less likely to spill – and a custom label adds a cute, personal touch.

    Parasols

    If your outdoor ceremony is under a blazing sun, your guests will appreciate having the extra shade.

    Sunglasses

    It’s a good idea to check out your ceremony location at the exact time when you’re planning on getting married. If you’re concerned your guests will be squinting in the sun, sunglasses are a good favor idea.

    Shawls or Blankets

    Depending where you’re getting married, there may be a risk of a slight chill in the air during the spring and fall seasons. That doesn’t mean you should avoid an outdoor ceremony entirely, but consider your guests’ comfort by providing them with shawls or blankets to cuddle up with.

    Tissues

    Place boxes of tissues at the end of every row in case your guests shed some (happy!) tears.

    Something Fun for the Recessional

    Whether it’s confetti, ribbon wands, streamers, flower petals, or something completely different, asking your guests to wave or toss something during the recessional can add a fun celebratory element and make for a great photo op!

    Fringe is still everywhere and I don’t think it's going out of style anytime soon. Traditionally, you take tiny pieces of fringe and cover shapes and large paper mache objects. For this DIY, I will show you a new technique to breeze through fringing anything.     Materials: Tissue Paper Cutting Mat and Rotary Cutter Scissors (or fringing scissors – easier) Elmer’s Glue Poster Board   Step One Lay several sheets of tissue paper flat and fold in half lengthwise. Use your cutting mat, a straight edge and your rotary cutter, to cut strips 2.5” wide across the fold.     Step Two Take each set of strips and unfold. Refold lengthwise.     Step Three Fold in half widthwise and cut fringe on the bottom (not the folded) edge.     Step Four Separate each fringed strip and refold lengthwise. Take your poster board and across the short edge, run a thin bead of glue across the length. Lay a fringed piece across the glue and press lightly to adhere. If the strip isn’t quite long enough to reach, just add pieces as needed. For the next layer add another bead of glue above the first strip and add another strip.     Step Five Repeat until the entire poster board is covered. Let dry.     Step Six Print out letters from your computer. Cut out the letters from the paper. Place each letter on the fringed board, adjusting it so the fringe goes left to right across the letter, and cut loosely around the edge. Once you have the smaller piece, use the template to cut out the shape perfectly.     Step Seven Repeat with remaining letters. Sometimes after cutting, the tops of the letters are missing fringe. Simply add touch up pieces of tissue paper fringe and glue down. Let dry and trim.     Step Eight Use a bunting template to make a fun garland. You can use the fringed poster board to make any shapes you like or keep as is for a fun backdrop or to use as a tray liner. The fringing goes quickly using this method and is less tedious than fringing each shape individually.     Step Nine To make a garland from the letters, simply flip over the pieces and tape down to twine. Here I used washi tape so I can remove and adjust the letters easily after hanging.     photos by hankandhunt.com

    These sweet and wild green wreaths are perfect for anytime of year (just change out the ribbon to suit the season). They look gorgeous on church doors, bride and groom chairs, or as pew markers. Total cost: $5 per wreath.     Materials: Spool wire Floral tape Clippers Greens (about 15 stems per wreath, we used rosemary, bay and boxwood) Ribbon      1. Form a circle (whatever size you need. Remember your wreath will be slightly bigger than the form) with the spool wire and double it over several times.   2. Cover the circle in floral tape.     3. Cut small pieces of greens and, take excess leaves off about an inch of the bottom stem.     4. Secure each piece with wire.     5. Make sure you overlap the stems to cover any wires or mechanics. You may need to fill in with a few extra pieces.     6. You can make these up to a week ahead of time. Spray daily with water and keep in a cool, dark place.   7. Hang with ribbon and afterwards send them home with special guests.       Add this natural touch to your big day - and have fun!     Photos By: Chelsea Fuss

Take your poster board and across the short edge, run a thin bead of glue across the length. Lay a fringed piece across the glue and press lightly to adhere. If the strip isn’t quite long enough to reach, just add pieces as needed. For the next layer add another bead of glue above the first strip and add another strip.     Step Five Repeat until the entire poster board is covered. Let dry.     Step Six Print out letters from your computer. Cut out the letters from the paper. Place each letter on the fringed board, adjusting it so the fringe goes left to right across the letter, and cut loosely around the edge. Once you have the smaller piece, use the template to cut out the shape perfectly.     Step Seven Repeat with remaining letters. Sometimes after cutting, the tops of the letters are missing fringe. Simply add touch up pieces of tissue paper fringe and glue down. Let dry and trim.     Step Eight Use a bunting template to make a fun garland. You can use the fringed poster board to make any shapes you like or keep as is for a fun backdrop or to use as a tray liner. The fringing goes quickly using this method and is less tedious than fringing each shape individually.     Step Nine To make a garland from the letters, simply flip over the pieces and tape down to twine. Here I used washi tape so I can remove and adjust the letters easily after hanging.     photos by hankandhunt.com

    These sweet and wild green wreaths are perfect for anytime of year (just change out the ribbon to suit the season). They look gorgeous on church doors, bride and groom chairs, or as pew markers. Total cost: $5 per wreath.     Materials: Spool wire Floral tape Clippers Greens (about 15 stems per wreath, we used rosemary, bay and boxwood) Ribbon      1. Form a circle (whatever size you need. Remember your wreath will be slightly bigger than the form) with the spool wire and double it over several times.   2. Cover the circle in floral tape.     3. Cut small pieces of greens and, take excess leaves off about an inch of the bottom stem.     4. Secure each piece with wire.     5. Make sure you overlap the stems to cover any wires or mechanics. You may need to fill in with a few extra pieces.     6. You can make these up to a week ahead of time. Spray daily with water and keep in a cool, dark place.   7. Hang with ribbon and afterwards send them home with special guests.       Add this natural touch to your big day - and have fun!     Photos By: Chelsea Fuss
