Friday Favors + Elie Saab Dresses

love wedding stamp

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all had a great week – and for those of you in the midwest and east coast – are keeping cool! :) Some of my favorites from this past week:

• Gorgeous magnolia bloom in this wedding by Jose Villa

Watermelon and Strawberry Mojitios make a perfect summer wedding cocktail!

• Brides next year will be able to use this awesome Love stamp for their wedding invites designed by type genius Jessica Hisch (to be released next year – I’ll let you guys know once it’s out as I plan to stock up on this stamp!)

• How sweet are these globes by Imagine Nations (spotted on Hello, Friend)

And let’s talk dream wedding dress for a minute. Have you seen the Elie Saab Fall 2011 Couture Collection? Every single dress is breathtaking! By far my most favorite designer right now. I love everything he creates. These feel a bit Parisan to me. I love the beads, the colors, the tulle…stunning. Some of my favorites below (although I think I could have picked about 30 for this post!)




You can view the entire collection here – do you have a favorite? And, yes I know I’m dreaming, these would be way out of my price range, but a girl can dream right?! :) Who are some of your favorite dress designers?

Below is an amazing stop-motion video of a giant Post It note wall (they used 350,000 Post It notes on the facade of the Galeria Melissa, in São Paulo, Brazil). So cool! And got me thinking – maybe a post-it note wall for a wedding backdrop? :)
