My Inspirational Yellow

I was browsing on the web and found these 2 images, I was so inspired by it's vintage quality/appeal and yellow color tones, I had to do a blog post on it. The images above are really quite lovely, don't you think? They look like its taken straight out of the book "Anne of Green Gables." Too Sweet!

Does anyone recognize this screen shot? I do! I do! Its taken straight off of Gilmore Girls. Remember when Luke proposed to Lorelai with 10,000 daises? It was one of the most romantic things that was ever wrote on television.

Flea Market Finds

I love going to flea markets! I simply love going to find weird and unique objects that can be used to decorate, used as props for photos and of course decor items in weddings! There are a ton of inspirational goodies that can be used for decorate weddings. All for only a few bucks? What a deal! The hard part isn't finding these items.

I think the hard part of shopping for wedding supplies at flea markets is trying to think of inspirational and creative ideas that can utilize the cool objects you find. I decided to gather a few inspiration wedding photos for various sites, and see what I can find at the flea market to create the same idea in your own wedding.

The are so many possibilities at one can find at a flea market, can you think of any I may of missed?

Picnic Baskets

Source: Stylish Wedding Favors

Many special events such as weddings and engagements call for a new idea. If your special party happens to be outdoor; and is in need to have a little something extra, think about catering out of picnic baskets!

Surprise your guests by serving their meal in a picnic basket! You can easily separate guests’ meals by couples or family and groups of friends. Fill each basket with cookies, sandwiches, beverages and other picnic food.

If this idea intrigues you, but doesn’t fit your wedding theme, think about having an engagement party or bridal shower as an outdoor picnic. Trust me, it’s something your guests will never forget.

Elizabeth Taylor

I never felt inadequate in my looks, but I would have to say that beauty icon Elizabeth Taylor with her violet eyes, would make a 6 foot tall blond model feel inadequate. To honor Elizabeth's death (February 27, 1932 – March 23, 2011), lets look back on all her beautiful weddings (8 total!)

Elizabeth Taylor + Nicky Hilton (married 1950–1951)

Isn't she as pretty as a princess? Her bridal look is any girl's fantasy..

Elizabeth Taylor + Michael Wilding (married 1952–1957)
Source: Fashion Bride

For Elizabeth's 2nd marriage, her look was more low-key. Perfect for a bride who doesn't want to make a big fuss about the big day.

Elizabeth Taylor + Michael Todd (married 1957 – 1958) (widowed)
Source: If It's Hip, It's Here

Elizabeth's wedding day to Michael Todd was romantic and stylish. I'm loving the bridal white shawl as a cover up.

Elizabeth Taylor + Eddie Fisher (married 1959 – 1964)
Source: If It's Hip, It's Here

Elizabeth's wedding to Eddie seemed like a spring party affair, rather than a traditional wedding day. Now a days, brides are also going away from the classic white dress, some brides even dare to wear pink! ... has only one seen that episode of 'Say Yes to the Dress'?

Elizabeth Taylor + Richard Burton (married 1964–1974)
Source: Fan Pop

Elizabeth's 1st marriage to Richard Burton, Elizabeth's hair was completely decked out with flowers, she seemed like a bride in a magical mystical place with fairies as for bridesmaids.

Elizabeth Taylor + Richard Burton (married again 1975–1976)
Source: If It's Hip, It's Here

In Elizabeth's 2nd wedding to Richard Burton, she seemed to be a Greek Goddess.

Elizabeth Taylor + John Warner (married 1976 – 1982)
Source: If It's Hip, It's Here

In John Warner's wedding, Elizabeth seemed like she was still into drapery and bridal attire. Either way, Elizabeth still looked stunning.

Elizabeth Taylor + Larry Fortensky (1991 – 1996)
Source: If It's Hip, It's Here

Elizabeth's last wedding to Larry Fortensky's wedding was classic 90's attire.

Happy Wedding :)

Wedding Bells and Belts

I love accessories! Especially for weddings, for my wedding (shown above) I decided to wear a champagne colored silk sash. I thought this to be simple, sweet, and just the right amount of color to add to my monochromatic color scheme of a white and black wedding. However as a bride (or ex-bride) who still has a desire to plan weddings, I like to think of all the different ways I can accessorize a wedding dress. Should you add flowers? A rhinestone studded belt? or add something with color? Here are a few ways to accessorize your wedding:

A Black Velvet Belt? So beautiful! Should I have worn a black belt for my black and white wedding? Too dangerous of a question to answer.

A Leather belt and a wedding dress? Dreams do come true! I absolutely love it :)

Leather belts and white dresses may be a new trend... I must find more inspiration images for fancy dresses and leather belts...

This belt is so gorgeous, don't you think? I believe it has a lovely vintage quality.

Even better! Good sparkles and Leather!

This belt is so elegant!!! Love it!

If you like the idea of belts on your wedding day, what about having your bridesmaids wear belts too! I think I should have of done this idea......

Happy Wedding :)

Tiny Couples

I'm loving all the creative cake toppers on Etsy! One of the cutest ideas that I've seen in cake toppers are the 'tiny couples' made of wooden findings. These are just so imaginative and inventive, it's amazing how much crafting is evolving into art. This is a showcase adorable shop 'Together Forever', and can I just say that they have the most darling little people in wedding cake history! If you are looking for a cake topper that is crafty, a little bit country, and just about the cutest thing you've ever seen, one these cake toppers are for you.

Happy Wedding :)

Retro Romance

A very fun trend is happening in weddings, weddings are going retro! … I have to say, I absolutely love this trend! It’s fun, creative, and playful. Retro weddings are all the rage. Girls and boys are in love with vintage things everywhere, in clothing, décor and now weddings! I am jumping on this bandwagon and showing you a collection of inspiration weddings…. Enjoy!

Free Resource

Here is a free card/invitation card front. The image of the flower was photographed by Mr. Wedding Day Tree, and edited with filters by me, Mrs. Wedding Day Tree. This design would match beautifully for a bridal shower invitation or an engagement party invitation. I attached a Photoshop (.PSD) file to the link that can easily be downloaded by Google docs. If you happen to need a different format, just ask and personally can send you a different format.
Happy Wedding :)

Wedding Day Tree Guest Book

We all the new trends in weddings, one idea stands out the most. This is a new yet classic approach to a wedding guest book. A guest book personalized with a family tree is truly unique. This idea takes a simple drawing of a tree, a few different color stamp pads and all your friends and family members to create a wedding guest book tree with their thumb print... Cute right? Not only is it a lovely idea to allow your guests some fun before the wedding, it also creates a piece of art that the bride and groom can hang in their home together after the wedding. If you would like a family tree, this is a great way to get one, because its not everyday that the whole family gathers together. Also if you like the idea of this but do not want your friends to be part of the family tree, then think about have 2 guest book trees. A tree guest book for family and one for friends.

Happy National Pancake Day!

Although its off the topic of weddings, we at the Wedding Day Tree team care about our readers.... We want them to be happy... and we can't think of anything that makes people as happy as Pancakes!!! (well.... except bacon)...

Today is National Pancake Day and IHOP (my favorite place) is giving away free pancakes all day! In giving you a sweet and delicious meal, in return, IHOP asks if customers can consider to donate to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other designated local charities. Isn't this a sweet deal? You can get good eats and do some good to help at the same time!

Sweet Cake Stands

Cake Stands are making a ultimate comeback. In the past cake stands were traditionally known as something your grandmother would use at a tea party. Now a days, cake stands are something that can be cherished. Cake stands are very versatile and good looking! They can easily be used as a practical item to hold cakes and other delicious treats. Cake stands can easily be transitioned into a wedding. I mean, really? Can it get any easier than this? Cake stands are classic and beautifully crafted, they come in a variety of colors and can be used at a wedding for candy or desert buffet!

Look below for some cake stand stand inspiration for your wedding!



Wedding Day Trees

As my first wedding blog post, I thought I would take my name of the blog (and future new shop) into inspiration for some decor ideas for your wedding. "Wedding Day Tree" what does this mean? Is it like a Christmas tree? With wedding presents under it? We can only hope. Until we discover the answer to what a Wedding Day Tree is, Here are some lovely inspiration ideas on how to incorporate a Wedding Day Tree into your wedding:
