We admit it, stripes have become our latest obsession! We’ve already crushed on sassy black and white stripes, but now we’re smitten with delicate and romantic blush, and we’re loving the trend of blush and white stripes in weddings! Such a beautiful way to add a bit of texture to your decor, gown, and even cake!

This is just one of those weddings we can’t stop looking at! Kelti and Chris were married at Austin’s Commodore Perry Estate surrounded by breathtaking gold and pink details. First stunner: Kelti’s gown, a dreamy Vera Wang confection from Casa de Novia Bridal Couture. Bridesmaids chose their own version of rose gold dresses, and everyone carried lush bouquets by David Kurio Designs. Caplan Miller Events assisted Kelti and Chris in carrying out their day, which included clear reception tents with chandeliers, green and brown china and details on the tables, and a perfectly over the top cake from Polkadots Cupcake Factory. We’re in love with these amazing images from Diana M. Lott Photography and Eclectic Images!

Nothing touches our heart at weddings more than seeing all the love that pours out of them. The love between the newlyweds, merging families and all of the guests who have gathered to witness the union just makes us melt. It’s a feeling we cherish so much we wish we could bottle it up and keep with us at all times. That’s one of the reasons why we love thoughtful wedding favors: they serve as wonderful keepsakes of a love-filled day that we can remember for years to come. That’s also why we have a major crush on Weddingstar. They have favors in all shapes, sizes, forms and flavors that can be customized so that they are the perfect takeaway from an amazing celebration. We also heart them because they are hosting a big giveaway for our readers! Today we’re sharing some of our very favorite favors Weddingstar has to offer, so sit back and be inspired for your big day!
We are so excited for Weddingstar because 2013 marks their 30th anniversary! They have years of experience in the land of wedding accessories, and their collections prove it. We are crazy about the Stylized Owl Salt & Pepper Shakers and the Antique Style Key Bottle Opener (pictured above) because they are so beautiful and functional. You can search for favors by filtering by theme, color or season on Weddingstar’s website. Or, if you’re like us, you’ll just look through them all so you don’t miss any of their amazing options.
Weddingstar also has a wide array of wedding accessories that extends beyond favors. Whether you’re looking for caketoppers, photo booth backdrops, menus, or table numbers, Weddingstar has it all, so be sure to browse their website for your viewing pleasure.
