  • Project and Photos by Brittni Mehlhoff of Paper & Stitch   Sometimes the best flowers for boutonnieres have the shortest stems. Which is why this delphinium and freesia bout is so cute. Using floral wire to keep stems sturdy and elongate them, you can make these beautiful boutonnieres for your wedding party in minutes.     Of course, they're also a small fraction of the price of what a boutonniere from your florist will cost, saving you money on your big day. Here's how to make your own!     Supplies: Floral Wire Floral Tape Washi Tape Scissors Purple Stock Freesia Delphinium Pittosporum How-To:     1. First, cut the stem of a freesia flower and the delphinium. Add a piece of cut floral wire to each flower to act as the new, longer and more sturdy stem. You can do this by poking the wire through the bottom of the stem and up through the top of the flower. Form a hook shape, and pull the wire back down to secure it. Each wire should be 4 to 6 inches long.     2. Next, trim the bottom leaves from Pittosporum and bottom blooms from the purple stock, to prepare them for the boutonniere.     3. Arrange all the flowers and add the Pittosporum behind them, to act as the base, before wrapping all of the stems with floral tape.     4. Cut the bottom 1-2 inches from the stems, to give the boutonniere a clean, short look.     5. Wrap the stems in decorative washi tape, in your wedding colors, or a minimal grey, to cover over the floral tape.     There you have it! Keep in water until it's time to pin them onto the groom and groomsmen.

  • Everyone have the unique body type, and every of them has its own advantages, the thing you should do is to find it and accent your features. The hourglass is the shape that all women strive to achieve, so flaunt your assets. If your bust and hips are equally proportioned and you have a waist that is clearly defined, I have to say you are so lucky. Here are some suggestions for choosing short cocktail dresses you will need.

    What you should know is to avoid high neck lines – you want to show off your cleavage, not hide it. Choose fitted cocktail dresses. Shift dresses and bodycon dresses are perfect. Dresses with pencil skirts will skim your silhouette beautifully. Look for dresses that nip in at the waist and stop just above the knee. Emphasize your slender waist by accessorizing with a contrasting belt.

    What to choose for your figure? Timeless fifties-style dresses are another great way to flaunt your enviable curves, with defined midsections and flared skirts. Strapless options are ideal. Wrap dresses will also suit you, emphasizing and enhancing your even proportions while cinching in at the waist.

    At last, if you want to find your dream dress and stand out from the crowd easily, I recommend Alizee Bridal to you, it offers a large selection of cocktail dresses, and you will find the perfect one at affordable price.

  • Yes, we love candy, koozies, and potted succulents as much as the next wedding fanatic, but sometimes you just need to think outside of the box. Here are a few wedding favor ideas that truly break the mold.

    Condiments and Spices

    Olive oil is a popular wedding favor these days, but if there’s a condiment that you and your spouse love, share it with your guests! We’ve seen ketchup, mustard, Tabasco, as well as various seasonings (Old Bay, BBQ rubs, etc.).

    Photo by Anjuli

     

    Temporary Tattoos

    Yeah, it’s a little offbeat, but it’s certainly hip and will get your guests talking. Offer up an array of temporary tats for your guests to enjoy. Who knows, maybe your Grandma will partake (can you imagine that photo?).

    Photos by (from left): Liz Chrisman Photography, Emily Alt Photography

     

    Books

    This might be a little labor-intensive, but we love the idea of picking out a book for each guest (or couple) to take home. Handwriting a personalized note inside is a great touch. What an amazing keepsake for your nearest and dearest!

    Photo by Diana M. Lott

     

    Buttons

    These are pretty quirky, but adorable, too! Offer your guests a selection of pins to affix to their attire and take home.

    Photos by (from left): Katelyn James Photography, Shelly Kroeger Photography

     

    Pottery or Handmade Crafts

    We love how this bride used her pottery-making skills to create ceramic bowls for all of her guests. If you have crafting or cooking skills, use them to create gifts for your guests (but don’t overwhelm yourself by taking on a too-huge task!).

    Photo by Maggie Fortson Photography

     

    Cotton Candy in a Box
    Fact: Guests love sweet treats. But instead of cookies or candy, try something a bit more whimsical with cotton candy stored in a takeout box. What a fun treat for guests of all ages!

    Photo by Jenny DeMarco Photography

    Fresh Fruit

    Give your favors a healthful touch by providing your guests with fresh fruit. From berries to pineapples, peaches to apples, think seasonal and local when it comes to picking your produce.
