We love Etsy artists. We could spend hours on the site searching for jewelry, art and wedding ideas. Then we found out about Mama Picture This. Sue has a gift shop on Etsy filled with artful images for home decor, gifts and weddings.
We love the photo magnets and think they would make a great favor at your reception. Choose a few of your favorite pictures and turn them into keepsakes for the day.
Send out a save the date so your guests can mark your event on their calendar plenty in advance. Especially during summer when everyone’s lives get busy you want to get the work out as soon as possible.

When planning a wedding in Oregon, especially in the Portland area, you run the risk of not having sunshine on your big day. There is nothing wrong with a little rain, we have gotten used it and enjoy the slower days (only us took about five years). When it comes to planning an event you need to think a little differently. Being prepared for unexpected weather is something to put on your list. If you are planning your event for spring or fall then be ready that a big dark cloud filled with water could spread droplets over your celebration. It’s no reason to put a stop to the festivities! Grab your rain gear and let’s celebrate!
Let’s start with a good ol’ pair of wellies. You have to protect those pretty feet while moving from one site to another site. Hunter is a brand that has lasting power. Their rain gear is built solid and will last a lifetime so you’ll be investing in something you can use again and again.
Add your something blue with these cute short gloss rain boots by Hunter. $125.00
If your colors are black and white, slip on these shiny black riding boots with gold accents. $195.00
If it’s going to be warm with a chance of rain then try a sandal you won’t have to worry about. These cute and stylish Limington Sandals will get many compliments. On sale $50.00
Yellow is all the rage for weddings. I used it at my spring wedding and loved how it added a pop of vibrance. If you ask your photographer having an umbrella can be a fun prop for your photos. Finding a clear one is even better since it won’t add dark shadows to your faces. This bubble umbrella is $48.00 from Hunter.
Go with a cute clear umbrella with a floral pattern from Totes for only $30.00.
If you feel the need to cover up your dress then slip on this cute white Kenneth Cole Reaction Coat. On Sale for $115.00 at Macy’s.
Whether it ends up raining all day (it is said to good luck in some cultures if it rains) or for a few hours have your rain supplies ready. Of course watch the weather report a few weeks out and as it gets closer to your date make adjustments. No matter what the weather, enjoy the time with your family and friends!
Blush is a popular wedding color this year, and in my opinion one of the most romantic and/or whimsical colors you can choose for your wedding. I am inundated every day with blush wedding ideas; and because even I love the color, I thought it would be fun to show a few of them off. Blush can be a part of almost any combination of wedding colors, and can add a subtle softness and romance.

My favorite is the driftwood centerpiece. I also love the pastel shades in the wedding cake. Found this little shot of inspiration on The Sweet Occasion.

This came from Ruffled. A finger corsage? This is surely something new. What do you think? I still haven’t made up my mind…seems itchy.
I had to throw in a pretty blush wedding dress. Found this on Wedding Dress Bee. It’s on sale right now, check it out!
LOVE THIS! So cute. What a great wedding idea. From A Practical Wedding. Dye flour with food coloring and make a trail to the wedding path. Flour won’t harm anything and can be any color you want!
