Two Web Belles: Friday Fancies

1. If you're looking to spruce up a centerpiece but don't want to splurge on the flowers, get creative with the container for the arrangement. Below are just a few photos to start you in the right direction. We can't get over how adorable those gerber daisies look getting their yeehaw on in the cowboy boots. Can you?

2. Something got us thinking about breakfast bridal showers. Not brunch, but breakfast. And even though one Belle would prefer a turkey club over a pancake in the morning, overall you're likely to please a group with traditional breakfast fare. Something about serving breakfast seems ultra laid back and a little silly, but in a good way.

3. We initially spotted this mountaintop real wedding feature on Once Wed and the "True Love is a Big Deal" sign as a marquee over the exchange of vows really struck our fancy. Look closely at the bike frame - another nod to the couple's first dance song. The real showstopper, though, is the recap post by photographer Jonas Peterson. There's tons of eye candy on his page but his recount of the day and transcript of the introduction by the ceremony officiant will bring a smile to your face or a tear to your eye - maybe both.

4. There's no shortage of ideas for custom gifts on Etsy, and this 1.5" thick canvas by geministudio certainly fits the bill. It incorporates twenty or so meaningful personalized references - think the date and location of your first date, your favorite shared vacation spot, the team you love to cheer for together, or the street where your first home together is located. This would make a sweet wedding gift, but we especially like it as a first anniversary present (not quite paper, but close enough). It's like a twenty-five word summary of everything you love as a couple. What's not to love about that?

5. This Amy Kutschel dress is effortlessly chic and stands apart from the strapless crowd. The breezy bateau neckline and ruched extended waistline would be flattering on almost any figure, and we love how the overall styling is vintage inspired without being costume-y. Timeless, unique, and fabulous is a win-win-win in our book. Via Once Wed, photography by Sylvie Gil.
