Lollipop Workshop

I keep telling myself, that when it comes time for my vow renewal, I'll be all set, since I've found about a hundred favorite wedding items since I said I do about two years ago. Until then, I'm enjoying some of these cute and creative finds...

These cake toppers are the best thing ever! They're handmade, obviously, and sport the most adorable little details (see the grass and flowers)! Lollipop Workshop will customize your cake topper to your little heart's content!

Lollipop Workshop also makes birthday cake toppers, like this one featured at the Leanne Stamatellos Photography Blog. I love them all!

Real Kentucky Wedding

I was just catching up on my daily reads this morning when I came across a post from the Southern Weddings blog. This real Kentucky wedding of Mallori + Tory features some gorgeous southern details, but what caught my eye immediately was Mallori's amazing gown — to die for!

I love the simple and flattering silhouette, the all over lace detail and the solid sash, it's just to die for! After doing a little poking around, I found out it's by Monique Lhuillier. Don't mind me, I'm just going to go drool over it on the website.

Centerpieces — with a hint of lime!

Fruit has been a feature item in many wedding centerpieces lately, and I’m loving every single one of them! Here’s a twist on filling your vase with whole fruit — slice it up instead! These yummy limes add such a nice punch of color, and would smell great too!

Coordinating photo strips

Being on the invitation side of wedding planning, it’s not often I get to see the bride and groom on their wedding day, which is kind of sad after all that hard work.

I got a little peak into Katie and Mike’s big day when she shared some of their photo strips from the reception. The little paisley design at the bottom matched their custom invitations perfectly, and was a great way to tie everything together!

When it comes time to work with outside vendors on your wedding related items, keep in mind, most will allow you to use custom artwork, so think about how you can tie in your invitation design or theme to the rest of your accessories.

Thanks for sharing Katie, and best wishes for the two of you!

Note: Katie and Mike hired Shutterbooth for their event.

Taking my sabbatical...

This weekend was one of those "unplug" yourself weekends, where Joe and I took it easy, worked on fun little projects outside and just tinkered around. I shut my phone off on Friday, left my computer off and hid the television remote. Needless to say, it was glorious.

It was pretty much at that moment that I realized I'm overly stressed out, and will be taking some time to focus on myself. I'll still be posting here every once in awhile, but it won't be on a daily basis.

I'm really happy with the way Bridal Buzz has turned out, and the last 332 posts have been so much fun. But eventually I had to take a step back and think about what's best for me and my time. I appreciate your understanding, and hope to keep you captivated with the smaller amount of posts.

If there is anything you'd like to see in the future on Bridal Buzz, please don't hesitate to email me. I'd love to do a few really concentrated posts a week. Email me: Kristin{at}

Have a great week everyone!
