Check out one more Fluffy Monster photo, metalic tree centerpieces, beverage-themed Save the Dates, and more on this week's reader round-up…

Pretending it's not cold out

Whoa, this is a bouquet alternative double whammy. As Fluffy Monster explains, "I crocheted the flowers, then sewed them onto gloves, since gloves seemed much more practical than bouquets." That's some winter wedding GENIUS! I'm also loving the bright yellow tie.

Geresy Wedding ~ Save the DatesDid I deliver on the beverage-themed Save the Dates, or what!? I'll let the bride explain these amazing creations:

My father and his best friend (Mariano Rosales and Jeff Shaw) did the artwork, which makes these even more meaningful to us. Paul, my fiancé, has been a beer brewer as long as we've been dating (over six years now) and I've been drinking coffee probably since I was 4 (this is probably why I am short). As a result, I've always been big into coffee brewing methods. Our loved ones turned us into our favorite brews and came up with a fitting phrase to go along with it. I always wear my hair in a pony tail (hence the coffee spilling) and Paul notoriously wears plaid shirts. That's his trademark facial hair and glasses.

ZGLP8bKTribesmaid Candicimo described her wedding as "more like a birthday party for a pre-teen boy." Which not only sounds AWESOME, but was proven to be awesome by this "achievement unlocked" photo. Their graphic designer friend made the sign, had it professionally printed for them, and then made the PDF available for all y'all if you want to unlock this achievement as well!
