Weekly Wrap Up

I saw this photo of vintage paper doll clothes hanging on a clothesline and my wedding radar instantly sounded the alarm: these would make such great escort cards for a wedding! Anyway, there were lots of great things happening this week, so a links a la mode would only be fitting. On Monday we will have our last real bride guest, and she will be sharing a few of her DIY projects.

Oh…swoon…I just purchased a simple ivory silk empire waist dress that this would look gorgeous with for my wedding. I would totally wear this again with a little black cocktail dress…LOVE!!

Real Brides: Emilia from {un}Veiled Vows

Continuing with our real brides feature, Emilia from {un}Veiled Vows will be sharing a few snippets from her wedding planning. You may remember her from this 60s New Wave engagement session I posted last year.

Hi there! I am Emilia Jane from {un}Veiled Vows. I was beyond ecstatic when Amanda asked me to stop by and talk about some of my wedding inspiration. We live in Southern California but are getting married in the New England town I grew up in on July 3rd of this year. We were engaged officially in February of last year.

Vintage Boho Nautical Wedding Ideas

First we wanted to focus on how we wanted the wedding to feel rather than how we wanted it to look. Basically, we wanted it to feel more like a reunion than a wedding. We wanted everyone to eat really yummy food, throw back a few (signature) cocktails, listen to really good tunes, and dance their butts off. We wanted a weekend to spend with our friends and family instead of just one day since we only get to see some of them once a year at the most.

Real Bride: Jessica from What I Wore

We invited some of our favorite, but very distinct brides to stop by Ruffled this week to share a little bit of their behind the scenes wedding planning, and we’re going to start with Jessica, from What I Wore. If you’re looking for vintage fashion inspiration, her blog is a must read. Jessica always finds the best vintage gems in thrift stores and shows how she wears them in several different ways.

She recently got engaged and just had her session done with Tiffany Arment Photography in Brooklyn.

From Jessica:
Although Adam and I met in Brooklyn, we knew we wanted a Hoosier wedding with a relaxed, backyard feel. We also love all things from the past – old photos, books, and clothing so we hope the reception will have a feeling of years gone by. The reception will take place in an 1850′s restored barn, 10 minutes from my childhood home in Indiana.
