Bridal Clutches

Do you own a chic clutch? One that can double as an important accessory at a wedding and holds your phone while you run errands? Since iPhones are everywhere, we are lucky enough to have retailers sell technology clutches to hold our phone and our lipstick. It’s pretty genius.

At my wedding I used a silver wristlet to carry everything from my written out vows to lip gloss. I realized how I almost forgot to bring something with me to hold my essentials (I couldn’t just have my Maid of Honor hold everything…I wanted to take responsibility of my stuff!), so I started browsing some of my favorite websites for bridal clutch ideas. There are so many, but here are a few classic clutches for the bride-to-be or someone looking to add a new accessory to their wardrobe.

I’m of the mindset that a bride should sparkle on her big day. My collection features a variety of textured clutches from lace to glitter or even satin. Happy shopping!

Save the Date Ideas from Minted {$100 GIVEAWAY!}

It’s almost standard procedure now to send out a wedding save the date. Most couples send theirs out between 6 to 8 months ahead of their wedding date. It’s a great way to not only have your intended guests “save the date” in their calendar, but it also helps them plan out any necessary travel arrangements. They’re also an easy way to share any engagement photos if you didn’t have a party or send out formal announcements.

If you’re planning on sending out Save the Dates, we’ve pulled ten of our favorites together from  Minted. Not only is their selection the best, but Minted is giving a lucky Sunny Soirees reader a $100 credit to their site!

Save the Dates

save-the-date-ideas

Photo: boutique foil-pressed save the date cards, vintage photograph save the date cards, chic save the date cards

Destination: destination save the date cards, a faraway destination save the date postcards, luggage save the date cards

Rustic: fireflies save the date cards, storybook script save the date cards, wood carving save the date cards, hand delivered save the date cards

Our favorites include foil-pressed cards, save the date postcards (save money on postage!), and bright colored cards. A save the date should set the tone for the overall wedding, so it’s important to have an idea about your event before ordering.

Not planning a wedding? No worries! Minted also has a large selection of Foil Stamped Birth Announcements, Party Decor, and Wall Art.

Minted partnered with Sunny Soirees to offer $100 store credit. The deadline is Monday, March 24th. Click the image below to enter!

Garden Wedding Inspiration

Outdoor soirees are my preference. While no party planners likes the inability to predict the weather, an outdoor event is great if Mother Nature plays along. As a Floridian, I take any chance I can to dine outside or host a party where the only ceiling is a bright, blue sky. For the upcoming spring season, Sunny Soirees has featured spring fashion ideas (for both men and women!) and floral place settings. Now, it’s time to show off a few ideas for a garden wedding. If you’re planning a spring wedding or bridal shower, these decor ideas are affordable and create a theme effortlessly.

Garden Wedding Ideas

Garden Wedding Inspiration

  1. glass hanging tea light holders
  2. paper pennant banner
  3. The Complete Outdoor Wedding Planner : From Rustic Settings to Elegant Garden Parties
  4. Marsupial Papers Garden Pocket Invitation Wedding
  5. personalized napkins
  6. Boatman Geller Bright Floral Platter Partyware
  7. seed favors 
  8. linen love favor bag
  9. midnight garden thank you cards
  10. vintage water bottle
  11. drink chiller tub
  12. wooden cutlery

For a garden-themed event, try seeds as a favor. You can package them in a variety of ways including these linen bags or in the styled packages as shown above. Outdoor decor can be easy if you try these items from The Knot. The hanging tea light holders, pennant banner, and vintage glassware are easy to find and add elegance to an outdoor event. Lastly, don’t be afraid of disposables. The disposable wooden cutlery above is perfect to add class to any place setting.

Style: Spring Party Fashion for Men

We already covered some sweet garden party dresses for the ladies here. Let’s not forget that our guys need to be properly outfitted for those fabulous spring parties too.  It’s time to check out some spring party fashion for men!

My husband has actually become quite good with picking out pieces he likes for work and parties. He can look pretty dapper when he wants and he’s not even all that into fashion or trends. We tend to look for simple pieces that he can use for several occasions. A guy can never go wrong with a fresh button down shirt and build from there. It’s something so easy to put together and look handsome enough to be the perfect party date!

 

Spring Fashion For Men

 

 

Mint Bow Tie// Light Blue Tie // Pink Shirt // Blue Stripe Shirt // Shoes // Gingham Shirt //Grosgrain Bow Tie // Navy and Green Tie // Yellow Striped Tie

While not every guy can pull off the bow tie, and it’s probably not my husband’s style either, I do think it is a very cool fashion statement! Hey, why can’t men have fun with their fashion too?

What’s your man’s style?

Brighten Your Day With Green Accessories

I have been counting down the days until Daylight Savings Time since we had to fall back last year. Something about that extra hour of daylight brightens my mood, increases my productivity, and gives me the opportunity to do more after the 9-5 grind. It’s not just that extra hour, either. It signifies that spring is coming soon–brighter colors, longer days, and spending more time outdoors. It’s a simple recipe for happiness, really.

Green has long been my favorite color, and I’m not talking about mint. While mint is beautiful in its own right, true green is stunning. It looks great on everyone, it brightens your eyes, and it’s fun to accessorize with. Whether you’re planning a spring wedding and looking for a pop of color under your dress or looking to add some sparkle to your every day life, here are 11 ways to brighten up your spring day.

Green Accessories

Green Fashion Heels

  1. Rosette to Go Dress from ModCloth
  2. Fairleigh Flat
  3. Let It Fern Heel from ModCloth
  4. Kate Spade New York Cobble Hill Bee (Bud Green) Wristlet Handbags
  5. Hematite-plated Swarovski crystal earrings
  6. Samba to Talk About Heel from ModCloth
  7. Snick Snack – Green
  8. Ballroom Glancing Heel in Emerald from ModCloth
  9. Peridot Drop Earrings in Sterling Silver with 14K Gold Plate
  10. SJP ‘Anna’ Sandal
  11. Deborah Lipmann Shake Your Money Maker

While I’d be pleased with any of the items on this list, I’m most drawn to Sarah Jessica Parker’s new line of shoes. Of course she has a green strappy heel in the perfect shade of green! My husband and son’s birthstone is peridot so that makes those dangly earrings a close second.

What is your favorite color? Are you ready for spring?
