This bride got married in the shirt she wore on her first date with her husband

I just really, really wanted you guys to see this outfit. When Jenny married Jake in Georgia last April, she paired a simple button-down shirt with a voluminous, white, ballgown skirt. And doesn't she look incredible? But, but, BUT — *dances with glee* — this is the shirt Jenny wore on her first date with Jake! IIIIIIIIIII KNOW. She topped it all off with a pearl necklace, a large bracelet, and some cute ankle boots. Well done, Jenny. Judging by the last couple photos here, you know you rocked this look.

How to make a travel-ready paper flower bouquet

I love flowers and definitely wanted to have something to carry to our ceremony, but my flowers had to survive a road trip from Seattle to Moab, the desert environment, a trip back, and still had to look good a month later at our reception!

Amber & Marshall's faerie-infused Renaissance wedding

Turkey legs, jousts, games, wench-y corsets, and a golden rose ceremony: sounds like a Renaissance festival wedding for the ages. And then add in the blessing from the king and queen, the adorable mini-chapel, and the tree-climbing uncle-with-a-camera, and you've got a wedding that'll melt any garb-wearing Renny around.

Meghan & Kristian's local-loving paper flowers wedding

Paper flowers, local friendors, and a love for their hometown make this wedding hit home. Plus, this bride took two vintage dresses and made her own dove grey dream dress with 70 years of history. And we will all learn at least one thing from this wedding: keep the dance floor splits to a minimum or face the crotch consequences!
