Top 10 // Leather Details

In addition to planning and styling kick ass events and photo shoots, I am also a handbag designer.  Handbag designer + crafter = hoarder of leather.  Lots and lots of leather.  I absolutely love using the natural hides as details in my designs.  From layered and draped on the tables to tiny details, this is such a great material to add an element of masculinity and cool factor in an understandable way.

Top 10 // Dog Wedding Details

We all love our fur babies.  I love seeing pups in bow-ties as furry ring bearers, but lets be honest, not all pets are as well behaved and not all venues want your pet in their space.  I can relate, we have a seven-year-old pup with the energy of a seven-month puppy.  She jumps and runs and is completely unpredictable, especially around large groups of people.  I know, like myself, many of you out there want to honor our pets, but not have them actually involved in your wedding.  Here is my round-up of 10 ways to honor Fido without having him don a doggie flower crown.  

1. Use your pup in your save-the-date like this couple did, by Foskett Creative

2. Cute puppy pics make for perfect table numbers as this wedding via Style Me Pretty.  

3. draw your four-legged friend into your your invitation, like this one by Le French Circus

4. From United with Love, favors for your fur babies.  

5. Like this wedding, use your dog's likeness to display your bling. 

6. Carry your pups with you down the aisle like Tori of Sitting in a Tree did.  

7. Designer, Amorology made the most adorable escort card display with dog details. 

8. How about a custom made cake topper of couple's best friends?  Love this one by Dog Cake Topper.

Flamingos are definitely the motif of the moment.  Here are ten super-fun ideas to incorporate these feathery friends into your wedding or party.
