A Vineyard Vines Wedding

It’s no secret that we love everything pink and preppy, and the Vineyard Vines whale is no exception. What’s not to love about a brand that’s all about fun in the sun? As it gets colder here we’re dreaming of warm weather weddings, with sun and waves and of course, our favorite summer wardrobe staples. You know, like Vineyard Vines.

If you’re dreaming on a Vineyard Vines  themed wedding, check out their wedding site and maybe even create a customize tie and cummerbund set for your big day. Complete with a personalized embroidery/text section on the backside of the tie, these set are the perfect groom and groomsmen gifts. A one of a kind piece they will actually wear again.

If we were planning a Vineyard Vines themed wedding it might look something like this…

The cake would be pink and navy with whales of course.

Bows for the Bride

When you think of bridal bows, do you think of those massive butt bows from the 80s? Don’t let that image deter you, bridal bows are the best!
