Adorable Aisle Adornments

From the moment I had my mind set on collecting fabrics to make our dinner napkins, I've been trying to find other ways to incorporate the fabrics to make our day seem more cohesive.  So far, I've come up with ways to incorporate different fabrics into our centerpieces as flowers, on our attendants as boutonnieres (an idea I'm totally, uh, borrowing from Miss Moonbeam!), as a part of our favors, and into the invitations.  Thankfully, the internet is full many, many creative and like-minded brides...  I'm finding inspiration all over the place!

A few weeks ago, I saw a real wedding featured on 100layercake that made my jaw drop.  Seriously.  It was like wedding porn created just for me.  I squealed, wished that I was as talented as the bride, and then saved the link into my favorites.

Although every DIY detail was the-cutest-thing-I've-ever-seen, one image stood out above all others:

First of all, she's wearing the dress I've been imagining for myself... which she made herself, BTW.  Second of all, that's probably my absolute favorite use of fabric bunting flags.  Ever. 

I'm pretty sure that this bride and I would be BFFs IRL.  I hope she doesn't mind that I'm planning on stealing borrowing her aisle decoration idea!  I can't think of a more perfect way to tie together our reception and ceremony areas.  Love, love, love it!

I don't really feel bad for stealing her genius idea; most ideas in wedding-land are stolen from somewhere, right!?  Heck, even those that I thought were completely original have been done before by someone, I'm sure!

So.  'Fess up, ladies!  What ideas have you "stolen" from other brides?

  1. Hey Miss D! I was searching Google for bunting inspiration and came across your blog! I love what you guys have going so far for the wedding ideas and I can't wait to try some fabric flowers myself.

    I haven't done much on my wedding website for a bit, but you can go see it if you'd like.
