TOMS Wedding Shoes Collection

One of the trends in bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts right now are shoes to wear to the reception. Heels and tux shoes aren’t necessarily the most comfortable dancing shoes so why not grace your wedding party with something a bit more practical? TOMS recently unveiled their wedding collection which showcases shoes for brides, grooms, bridesmaids, groomsmen and even the little people in your wedding party but if you know anything about TOMS you know there’s more to these shoes than sparkle (and comfort). For every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS gives one pair of shoes to a child in need. Amazing right? So essentially your gift to your wedding party is also a gift to a child in need!

The wedding I posted yesterday for Carlos and Amanda is a perfect example of what a great gift TOMS are for your wedding party. Check out the post of their wedding to catch a glimpse of the sparkly gold TOMS on the bride and bridesmaids at the reception!

Always a Bridesmaid {Etsy Finds}

Hey, I don’t have a problem being a bridesmaid. Especially if I’ve got a great bridesmaid gift coming my way! Here are a few ideas to make your girls feel special… 


Custom initial necklaces
one. two. three.

Rose necklaces
one. two.

When I think of groomsmen gifts I think cufflinks, flask and a tie. Those are all great gifts but if you’re looking for something a little more unique, especially if the guys’ are going on their fifth wedding this year, these gifts won’t disappoint…

Hostess Gifts {Etsy Finds}

I am always hard pressed for an answer when asked for ideas for hostess gifts. It depends on the party, the hostesses and your own personality but otherwise can be a pretty generic gift in my opinion. I always try to look for something that I personally would enjoy receiving. With that in mind, here are a few ideas I found on Etsy. The great thing about Etsy is you can purchase as many as you need and some items can be custom made for you as well. With all the love I give to Etsy you would think I’m being paid to do so. I assure you I am not, I just have a slight obsession with adorable things and Etsy delivers when it comes to adorable! So without further ado, if I were hosting this holiday season, I know I’d love to receive any of these wonderful gifts!

If you’re having an autumn shower or party, these little cozies would be a darling gift. There are a few different styles and they come in many different colors too! You can also have them custom made depending on your hostesses’ personalities! Love it!
When I first saw this I thought it was food. It looks THAT good right? It’s a Pumpkin Spice Latte Foaming Sugar Scrub. Also a great autumn hostess gift and probably not something you would normally find in stores. After working hard to plan a party for you, the first thing your hostess needs is a nice long bath don’t you think? This seller has many other soaps and scrubs you can purchase as well.

This is Sweet Pumpkin Pie goats milk soap. I love these because they come pre-packaged in that darling box you see in the picture. These are great gifts because they’d be perfect for your hostesses’ kitchen or bathroom sinks!

If you’ve never had mulled cider you’re missing out! These Organic Mulling Spices make it SO EASY for your hostess to add to hot cider or wine for a party or for her family during the holidays AND $9 gets you 3 bags so they are super affordable if you have a lot of hostesses!


Shoe Lovelies {Etsy Finds}

I found the most Blue-tiful (get it? Get It?) wedding idea on Etsy today. Check it out:


So the shoes are not for sale, but what IS for sale is that fantastic feather adornment (or “lovelies” as the Etsy seller likes to call them) on the front of the shoes AND they are made custom to YOUR SHOES! Amazing right? So whether you’re in need of something blue for a white shoe or you already have something blue and want to pizzazz it up a bit or maybe you’re like me and just have an obsession with feathers, rhinestones and cuteness…how perfect would these be?

I had the hardest time finding great shoes for my wedding and I’m telling you, these will have everybody asking “Where DID you get THOSE?!” AND since they are custom made, no one will have the same pair of wedding shoes as you! So chic. So cool. I’m. In. LOVE!
