Beautiful Burlap

It’s time to change the way people look at burlap. Yes, that “plain-woven, coarse fabric of jute, hemp, or the like” (source). Burlap has come a long way. No longer used just for utilitarian purposes, burlap’s being integrated into wedding themes and decor more than ever.  Especially now that it’s spring, there’s no better time for it. The fabric lends an earthy, natural feel to decor. Bonus: it’s neutral in color. Another bonus: it’s uber affordable. Advice: don’t make burlap the leading star of the show. Instead, make it a fabulous supporting part, an element so effortless that it gets lost in the ensemble of the entire cast. Steal some of the inspiration below… and enjoy!     Photo Credits: 1 Duke Photography / Advice cage by Pretty Please Design / Via Lovella Bridal’s blog 2 Jamie Harper Photography (via) 3 Virgil Bunao (via) 4 The Schultzes (via). 5 Erin […]

Fabulous To-Know: Lady Cameo

cam·e·o (n): A piece of jewelry, typically oval in shape, consisting of a portrait in profile carved in relief on a background of a different color. (source) We’re often intrigued when we see a bride carrying a bouquet adorned with a lady cameo at the handle. Often this piece is a family heirloom, passed down from mother to daughter perhaps various times, for various occasions. So what’s behind this lady cameo? A cameo, resulting from a commissioned portrait, was a prized possession for many a Victorian woman. However, “another kind of portrait appeared with an anonymous woman” this site states. Cameo designers soon introduced the cameo habillé (dressed), which “depicts the portrait of an idealized woman adorned with jewelry. This type of cameo has found great popularity and continues to be produced in the present day.” The lady cameo’s not only being incorporated into weddings via jewelry, but it’s gracing […]
