Rocked Up In Rhinestones? Check.

with 2 comments

Gorgeousness?  Check.

Way cool?  Check.  As your checking off your list of things to get done before your wedding, what if you just added one more?  If you’re a crafty nut who loves getting creative like I do, you might just enjoy this DIY decor idea that popped into my head last night.  Allow me entertain you with it for a second…but first, take a look at this photo that provoked the idea…

Now, what if you lined your wedding ceremony aisle or runner with rocks?  Not just any rocks, but ones either rolled or dusted in glitter?  If not glitter, maybe they could be fancied up with sparkly rhinestones applied on each.

I feel like it would almost give off a magical look, similar to the twinkling walkways at Disney World!  Just imagine the sun hitting the rhinestones or glitter and seeing a bunch of twinkling going on as you walk down that aisle to say your vows…can it get any more dreamy than that?  Happy planning!

I’d Rock The Shoes…

with 3 comments

…Would You?

Today the inspiration is flowing like mad, and I’m loving it!  How about this picture, for example, taken by the extremely artistic and talented photographer Liz Wolfe:

I’ve seen the heels of shoes sprinkled with rocks like candy, but never before the bottoms.  While maybe the actual foot of the shoe wouldn’t be such a hot idea as it’d make it difficult to walk or dance in, but what if you decorated with rhinestones the upper part of the bottom of the shoe, under the arch?  Whoa.

Ooooh la la…it sure would make for a hot photo shot when it comes time for your groom to take off your garter!  Don’t you just adore sparkly little things?

Add a little sugar to your bouquet, while you’re at it:
