I Love Love Mood Boards // Pretty in Pink Garden Party

It's spring!  It's spring!  Guess I was feeling extra girly this week, because this mood board is all about flowers, the color pink and butterflies.  Yes, butterflies.  They are making a comeback.  Mark my words.  Last time butterflies were a big thing, I was a teenager and Mariah Carey ruled the world.  Now it's Queen B, but butterflies none-the-less are making are back on the scene.  I think they could be so pretty sprinkled into wedding details, paired with pretty flowers, and spring colors.

This Week We Love Loved...

Anyone else feel under water this week?  Cue the hand raised emoji.  I want the joy of holidays to last all year, but I want the rush of December to end as quick as possible.  I did find a few minutes to check out the pretties from the blog world. 

This simple bouquet by Celeste Green looked stunning at this couples surprise(!) San Francisco/Big Sur wedding, over on Once Wed

Velvet green wedding party and perfectly done holiday decor made the perfect backdrop for this DIY Christmas wedding on Something Turquoise

Can't get this Haley Paige gown out of my head.  Check out the rest of the pretty celebration on Green Wedding Shoes

Also from GWS, a real wedding dream team came together for this insane "smoke bomb" styled shoot.

I Love Love Reader Questions // 1

Lauren,

I hope you can help, I am looking for flower girl dresses.  My wedding is in March and my colors are navy, white and gold with pops of coral. I am looking for something that's not your typical flower girl dress and not babyish.  I also want something with some sparkle to contrast against the navy bridesmaid dresses.  I want the dresses to feel playful, with a lot of movement and texture, and they want to feel like princesses, which I totally understand.

FLOWER GIRL

Hi Jessica,

You've come to the perfect place, playful and sparkly are specialties of I Love Love Events!  I did some shopping for you and I think I  found a few great options that fit your requirements.  There were lots of great white and off-white options, some pink dresses and a fewer peach and gold looks.  If you are going for coral, I suggest to shop now for the best selection, as these colors seem to be marked down.  Many of these dresses come in both toddler and girl versions.  Flower girl dresses are hard, many of the bridal shop options tend to look the same and searching Etsy was completely overwhelming.  I had the best luck on the department store sites,  especially Nordstrom.com, as well as J. Crew.com.  Be sure to check the factory if the main site is a little pricey.  And if none of these are it, try using "soutache" in the key word search, which is a type of trim embellishment that gives you the three-dimensional floral look.  Hope that is helpful.  Cheers!
