DIY Bridesmaids Gift Idea: Personalized Glitter Cell Phone Cases


How many of you received a proposal over the holidays? If you were asked a very important question, and your answer was “yes!” … then congratulations! We love hearing proposal and engagement stories that happen over the holiday season, and are always excited to receive emails from brides interested in starting the wedding planning process. A question we sometimes get is, “What do I get my bridesmaids as a ‘thank you’ gift?” Thoughtful gifts are the best–whether they are homemade do-it-yourself craft projects or gorgeous Kate Spade bangles. We found this super cute and easy diy project from Design*Sponge!

Favorite Fall Wedding Favor Ideas


Oh the weather is changing, and autumn is definitely in the air! For those brides fixin’ to get married during the fall, we put together some unique, and possibly diy-friendly favors to give to your guests at your wedding.

When we think of fall, images of pumpkins, leaves, cozy knit sweaters, and apple cider dance in our head. Using colors like burgundy, gold, orange, shades of brown are fall staples to any autumn-themed wedding. However, when you mix those fall colors with metallics or pastels, it can really give your decor a pop! You can bring fall fashion into  your favors as well by wrapping twine around gifts or creating a wool coozie/wrapper to bundle your gifts in. Fall is all about texture and warmth!

Amaretto-Cranberry Kiss


This fusion of amaretto and cranberry create this amazing, popular crowd pleaser. The colorful cocktail balances well to create a smooth, tart and not too sweet taste. Enjoy!

We suggest using this cocktail drink as a signature drink to be served at your fall or winter wedding reception. Since the Amaretto Cranberry Kiss is served in a martini glass, it would fit in perfectly with a sleek, modern winter wedding theme.

{ Epicurious }


  • 2 cups cranberry juice cocktail
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 1/2 cup of amaretto
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh orange juice
  • ice cubes
  • clementines, peeled and separated

1. Combine cranberry juice, vodka, amaretto, and orange juice in pitcher.

2. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

To make 2 drinks, fill cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Pour in scant 1 cup vodka mixture. Cover and shake vigorously. Strain into 2 Martini glasses. Garnish each with clementine segment. Repeat 3 times with ice cubes, remaining vodka mixture, and clementine segments.

So you’ve successfully received permission from her parents. What’s next?

Like Matt and Ginny, you too can have a romantic and memorable proposal. Marriage proposals don’t need to be expensive or extravagant. Ladies like a proposal that comes from the heart. If you can be original and creative, even better! So turn on your thinking caps and get some inspiration from these different proposal ideas to get your dream girl to say “yes!”.

{ Pinterest }

First, it’s important to determine whether you want to propose on a low-key or grand scale. Depending on her personality, some women may prefer a private, intimate proposal between just you and her while others may prefer it public, open and in front of friends or strangers. Assuming you know your special lady by now, determine whether she’s a private type of girl or a public one.

On top of the world – Take her on a special trip, maybe to her favorite vacation spot, or somewhere new and exciting. If she’s an outdoorsy type of girl, take her on a weekend trip to Mount Haleakala and propose at a beautiful high location that she surely won’t forget. They say setting can set the mood. Dreamy destinations or breathtaking views can never go wrong.

Back to the roots – Think about the relationship from the beginning. Take her to where it all started. Reenact your first date (remember the details!) or bring her to the place you first met her. Bringing her to places that hold sentimental value will warm her heart and bring back happy memories.

{ Timecut }

Play to your hearts desire – If you’re blessed with a talent – whether it be soulful singing or playing a musical instrument, go a little old school. Play or serenade a song that reminds you of her or shows her how you feel. If you have a song you both share, “our song,” that could work as well. If you’re feeling extra original, write a song or change up the lyrics and show her how much you mean to her. Throw in “will you marry me?” at the end of your performance if you’re feeling brave.

In her dreams - A really simple idea that’s more on the low-key scale involves very little preparation, just the right amount of timing. Surprise her in her sleep, a time when she least expects it. Maybe she’s a girl that’s hard to fool and hard to surprise but loves surprises anyhow. When she’s fallen deeply asleep, slide the ring carefully on her finger. Don’t wake her up! Wait until the next morning for the loud shriek and you’ll know she received your message.

Food + ring = best combination ever  - It’s seen in movies and used in real life. Planting your engagement ring in food, typically dessert such as a cupcake or fortune cookie is fun and cute! Watch your loved one react as she takes on more than she can chew (literally!) She’ll be caught off guard when she sees that the mysterious item that got caught in her mouth is a diamond ring. If you’re a fan of this long time tradition then start planting away!
