Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses

It’s boho bridesmaid time!  Even if you’re not a boho bride, this mismatched bridal party look can be oh-so chic for your big day!  Especially when hosting a destination wedding, mismatched maids create that carefree vibe one can expect on vacation.  Whether the gowns are formal or flowery and flowy, consider giving your girls a chance to express their own style with a bridesmaid dress of their choosing.  Too unknown for you?  Then select a handful of gowns for them to select from, so you leave nothing to chance!

Unique Wedding Rentals: Rentivist


Every so often we like to share a cool new product, trendsetting service, or fun find for our destination wedding friends and couples and today we bring you Rentivist! They came on the scene not too long ago and we recently had the pleasure of seeing their products come to life firsthand. Needless to say, we were sold.

But what is it? Rentivist is a new concept – a website that connects couples with cool stuff they want to rent – from folks who have excess inventory or available unique and different products ready to ship to you! It’s essentially an online marketplace where oodles of event companies can display their wares and you select what you display on your big day. The rental companies pay to participate so you as the bride or groom never get charged (no transaction fees, markups, or commissions).

Register for a Cause for Your Wedding Registry


Today we want to share with you a new idea for your wedding registry.  If you’re looking to give back, pay it forward, or just spread the love of your big day, then consider registering to support your favorite charity or charities in lieu of kitchen products and home accessories.  Who really needs another blender anyway!?  Enter the brand new charitable giving wedding website, The Good Beginning.  Founded by destination wedding planner, Beth Helmstetter, after seeing a need to do more and help others do the same, the program gives groups the ability to give during a time in one’s life when we have so much.

The Good Beginning is a hub where couples can actually register for donations to their favorite charities.  The registry allows couples to either choose from a list of featured organizations or upload their own personal favorites and then create a personal portal that they can embed into a wedding website or share directly with guests. Guests can also go to the site and search for each couple by name and give!


In addition to the registry feature, The Good Beginning also features fun stories about fashion, design and wedding planning to easily plan a socially conscious wedding. There’s no time like the beginning of a marriage to start the ritual of giving back and doing good!  Check it out and sign up today to share the love.


White Hot Heart Valentine’s Day Weddings

We’re kicking off Valentine’s week with a little white hot wedding inspiration.  Instead of the traditional red rose for your love, consider a more subtle wedding style using white hearts!  Woven into an invitation design, wedding cake, or even escort card display, white hearts can be used year round at weddings, not just on Valentine’s Day I do’s!
