We love this original idea of using doorknobs as a stand for flag escort cards! This DIY project is super simple and it makes for such a cute wedding detail! Whether they are vintage knobs you’ve collected, knobs bought from the Home Depot, or
knobs bought from Anthropologie (our favorite!), you can personalize this detail to your
To make the flags, you have to download this template. Give each flag a brush of color and then cut them out. Next, cut the sticks nto 4 inch pieces, then glue the wide end of each flag to one end of the dowel and stick the other end into the knob.
And it’s that easy. A small amount of work for a statement wedding detail!

The escort card display is a project that many brides skip in their wedding preparations. We get it. Planning a wedding is a huge job and the escort card display is a small detail that often gets swept under the rug in the
chaos of getting all the bi
g things planned. Here’s why you shouldn’t skip it; the escort card display is often the first thing that greets your guests when they arrive at your wedding. Long before they see you and your bridesmaids, check out the ceremony decor or take a peek at the table centerpieces, the escort cards are front and center and provide your opportunity to give your guests a sneak peek at what’s to come.
We love escort cards
that also serve dual purpose as favors and table decor. Why not use a tiny potted plant at each place setting that guests can take home as a fun reminder of the day? Or how about a tiny bouquet of dried lavender? Whatever you decide, consider using escort cards as a fun way to incorporate your wedding theme into every little detail.
We are thrilled to share this gorgeous Seattle wedding from Green Wedding Shoes shot by photographer extraordinaire Michelle M. Waite!
The bride, Beth, was born and raised in Seattle and the groom, Joe, moved to Seattle about 6 years ago. They wanted a wedding that would
highlight their adoration of the city, so what better ceremony location than on a retired Washington State Ferry? The boat floated over Lake Union, giving guests a spectacular view of the Seattle skyline!
The bride and groom said that although it was a gray, rainy day,
it felt perfect for the vibe of the event, and it gave out of town guests a true Seattle experience!

Side Chignon” width=”575″ height=”1458″ />
Step 1: Blow out hair with a round brush to add volume.
Step 2: Use a large barrel curling iron to create waves from the ears down.
Step 3: To build volume at the crown, tease hair gently with a fine tooth comb.
Step 4: Gather hair into a low ponytail, twisting hair along the nape of your neck as you go.
Step 5: When you get to your ear, twist the rest of your hair into curls and pin back over the twist.
Step 6: Spritz on some hairspray to hold strands in place, twisting and curling the whispy ends to add texture.
The chignon has been a traditional bridal hairdo for years and years but modern brides are putting a new spin on it – the side chignon. Whether your hair is curly or straight, long or short, a side chignon is easy to create and works on everyone. Try
a sleek version for a traditional wedding or a more messy one for a more casual affair. It’s also
the ideal wedding hairstyle for brides planning to wear a hairband, fascinator or birdcage veil.
And for those brides hoping to wear fresh flowers in their hair, the side chignon is ideal for tucking in a few blooms.
