Finally, finally, Spring seems here to stay! With the lovely warmer weather we’ve had, we’re inspired by all things beautiful – even more than usual – especially flowers! Peonies are always a bridal favorite, but they seem to be more in demand this spring than ever! Peonies are gorgeously lush, romantic flowers. They are fabulous alone or mixed with other blooms and make great bouquets for brides and their bridesmaids alike. The fragrant blooms come in several different varieties, hues and sizes, making them quite versatile. And because one of the symbols/meanings they are know for is “happy marriage,” they are the perfect wedding flower! Feast your eyes on these personal pretties:
Do you ladies love peonies as much as we do? Are you using them in your wedding design? We want details!

StarDust Bride Shalane and fiancé Todd planned a romantic, rustic lodge wedding in College Station in honor of their Aggie roots. Shalane looked absolutely stunning in her “Chateau Marmont” bridal gown from Claire Pettibone.
|Shalane looks ethereal in this elegant lace gown!|
|The vintage styling of the gown makes this photo look as though it could have been taken decades ago!|
|Love the intricate detailing of the gown from top to bottom!|
|We adore that Shalane wore cowboy (or cowgirl!) boots with her delicate lacy gown!|
Thank you, Shalane, for trusting StarDust to help you find your dream wedding gown! Your wedding was beautiful, and we wish you and Todd much love and happiness!
Okay, so the name is NOT the loveliest…but the cakes themselves sure are! We’re talking about the hottest trend in wedding cakes right now – naked cakes! With the explosion in the whole rustic wedding thing, naked cakes are popping up everywhere! The cakes, which are filled and frosted on top but not the sides, are a great complement to the rustic décor of lots of wood and burlap. We like them best when topped with greenery, sparse flowers or fruit! But some cake designers have started giving these naked cakes a more clean and modern feel. No matter which style direction you take, the end result is truly lovely. Take a gander:
|Rustic naked cake with fruit and flowers|
