Wedding Announcements: Bridal Inspiration from Around the Web

Balloon wishes, paper lanterns, and a savory twist on the the dessert table.

Kate Spade's new wedding collection (dresses and accessories) is, as predicted, totally adorable. These showstoppers would make great "something blue".  

Engaged, in love, and ridiculously good-looking in Cuba.

What fun looks like.  

A shirred grecian dress to die for.  

Balloon birthday wishes that would work just as well as a wedding surprise.

DIY Philanthropic Favors. (Donut holes are also a cute way to go, though.)

Pretty paper lanterns from Luna Bazaar.    

We kind of sort of really love the spud bar. Perfect for carb fiends without sweet tooths. 

A loose upsweep for the casual bride.  

The Wedding Style Guide's free e-mag is seriously worth a look.  Australians always have the best design ideas.

Feather Love Photography hits it again with these vintage-washed 35 mm shots from the Ace Hotel. (PS How fun is all that garland?)
