Wedding Paper Divas Ladies’ Brunch

There couldn’t be a more fabulous morning then one filled with brunch, girl-time and fun DIY’s. So, when we decided to host an intimate brunch and DIY party in honor of Wedding Paper Divas’ new DIY collection, we knew that the day would surely be one to remember. The talented Rebekah Carey styled the event, which was beautifully captured by Jessica Burke. Bianca of A Fabulous Challenge put together a stunning and oh-so-fun wedding invitation DIY for guests to do and Priscilla Francine hosted a lash bar, which was guest favorite. Loop flowers filled the room with stunning and vibrant blooms while guests took sips out of vintage 60’s tumblers from Frances Lane.

Alternative Reception Ideas

Engaged couples planning weddings in 2009 are trying to cut costs and simplify their events, and one specific way that couples are cutting costs is with an afternoon reception.   Since most weddings take place during the evening, you can often get better rates for events held in the afternoon.

If you are looking for ideas for a day-time reception, check out our three suggestions below.  We love how they are simple, yet stylish.
