Friday Favors + New Invites from Minted

modern rustic bouquet

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful fun week. I’m still a bit exhausted from WPPI this past week, so I’m planning on trying to catch up on some sleep this weekend + probably watch a few movies since it looks like it is going to rain all weekend here in LA. Then an Oscar party on Sunday – can’t wait to see all the fashion!

Some fun finds this week …

How yummy would these strawberry lassi’s be for a bridal shower or brunch wedding?

Real Wedding: Jennifer + Joshua’s Backyard Bash

I just love this backyard bash that Shira from Martha Stewart Weddings shared with me. The spring 2011 issue comes out this weekend and this wedding in Livermore, California has tons of cute details! Complete with handdrawn patterned linens and paper goods illustrated by the bride, tons of cute DIY touches (like chairs made by the groom and vellum birds), a trio of piñatas stuffed with confetti and lottery tickets, and their adorable bow-tied dog, Peanut. Here is a peak at their wedding…

Wedding Inspiration from the Movies: Black Swan

Earlier this week, I asked all of you who like Green Wedding Shoes on Facebook what movie you saw this past year that you would like to see some wedding inspiration from. One of the most popular movies suggested was Black Swan. Since I was a ballerina throughout high school and college, I love the idea of pulling inspiration from a ballet movie – without the crazy killer parts of course! The first board is based off a sophisticated black color palette – a black tulle wedding dress, lots of black feathers + lots of glamour!

Or maybe you are more of a White Swan. I love the mix of pale pink + white – it would make for such a pretty wedding! :)

Love feathers? Check out some of these white feather dresses by Romona Kevezan on top and Pronovias on bottom that you could wear for your wedding day.

Or maybe just a gorgeous feather hairpiece is more your style! So many great options out there right now. Some of my favorites include these top two by Twigs and Honey and the bottom two by Lo Boheme.

What do you guys think? Anyone finding inspiration from Black Swan or maybe just feathers for your wedding?
