This amazing nautical inspired wedding rocks my world. While theme weddings are definitely in vogue, successfully executing the theme can sometimes prove to be a little tricky {god knows I’ve seen my share of theme weddings gone wrong}. That said, here’s a little theme wedding inspiration to get you through the day. This is definitely how to do it right!

I love vintage wedding dresses and retro wedding dresses {ahh the elegance of bygone eras}. Okay maybe I don’t love my mothers puffy vintage style wedding dress {sorry mum}, but I definitely love the majority of them.

The above wedding dresses are custom vintage inspired wedding dresses by Peppermint Pretty and are just so gorgeous. I love that Peppermint Pretty caters to brides who have a strong sense of style, who love fashions from decades past, and who are looking for something a little unique. To see more of their designs head over to Peppermint Pretty.

I’ve always loved cupcake wedding favors and just when I thought my cupcake love couldn’t deepen, I found the most charming cupcake in a jar homemade wedding favors. I’m swooning over these, as they’re just so visually gorgeous and made out of irresistible red velvet.

I also love the fact that they appear to be relatively easy to make, even for a novice in the kitchen. You can also easily turn these favors into personalized wedding favors by changing the flavor and labels. For the delicious recipe and instructions head over to cakies blog.
