These past few days here in Atlanta have been some rainy ones and they can definitely make you feel a little gloomy…BUT they have inspired us to give you some “rainspiration” for how to make the best out of a rainy day, especially when it happens to be on your wedding day. With the amount of rain we have already had, and with springtime right around the corner, we all know precipitation will be in the forecast in the coming months. As much as we wish (as planners) we could control the weather, we can’t, although we really do try! Here’s some ways to make the best of a rainy day wedding-using fun props and of course the awesome photo ops! (it’s also a rhyming kind of day)
-Have your bridesmaids in matching rain boots that coordinate with their dresses.
-Better yet, coordinate your rain boots and umbrellas with your bridesmaids! How cute is this?
-I adore this photo; it captures the bride’s joy, even in the pouring rain, and the involvement of the entire bridal party to keep the bride and groom dry for their memorable ceremony.
-This photo is just pure awesomeness.
-Talk about a jaw-dropping moment; full of love, beauty and absolute happiness of these newlyweds.
So remember, if it does happen to rain on your special day, embrace it! because today you are marrying the love of your life, and no matter what happens, that simple fact should trump everything else.
For us lampshade decor your event must be done right! The lampshades cannot just be placed on the tables and expect to get that wow factor! Check out the designs below how the florals are incorporated around the base or in the lamp bottoms themselves. This gives you a fresh and modern approach to a traditional design.
Remember that your lighting is key, you will still need a great amount of candles at the base or uplighting on the lamps to give it that perfect glow.

We have seen the traditional flat wedding guestbook for years now, we still love them but we think it is time to switch it up a bit! After all having 100 people stand in line to sign one book often causes a line and causes you missed signage. What I love about these recipe box guest books, is that you can have several people fill and file out the cards at once. You will not have guests decide to join the bar line instead.
Head over to Le Chic Boutique for more one of a kind wedding and nesting items.
Can you remember the last time you had a night out on the town and you forgot something? That one little annoying thing you were sure you had at the bottom of your purse such as a hair holder or mint?
Placing bathroom baskets in your common bathrooms, leaves your guests with the feeling that you have now included them in your big day and it is not all about the couple. You went an extra step to ensure that their needs were taken care of if an issue should arise.
Here are a list of items that you can include in your baskets (keep in mind most of the items can be purchased in the travel section of your favorite store for around .99 cents):
Double Sided Tape
Colgate Wisps (mini disposable toothbrushes)
A travel manicure set
Hair Ties (Girls Only)
Bobby Pins (Girls Only)
Tampons (Girls Only)
Panty Liners (Girls Only)
