I love when a bride adds her own special touches to the wedding. Whenever I can, I try to grab photos of these items to share on the blog. I realize I’ve been collecting them for awhile now and figured I’d better get to posting!

This wedding was from way back in April (seems like ages ago!). The groom is in a band and the bride made a special boutonniere for him.

She also did these very pretty chair reservations.

Another trend I’m seeing is TOMS wedding shoes – so love these! The bride bought this beautiful garter from Etsy.com.

Another bride had a special touch just for her guests – flip flops for the beach ceremony! You can purchase these fairly inexpensively at places like Old Navy and of course, get them to match your wedding colors!

I really enjoy seeing cultural influences as well. This bride & groom brought their cake topper with them, a shout out to their heritage.

This bride also had a fun way for guests to find their seat.

I was a big fan of this too – a large wooden tray with moss & beautifully labeled envelopes.

Be sure to check back often for more fun ideas!
