Umbrellas (via SMP)

Weddings are a great place to look for summer brunch inspiration. And this lovely photo from the talent of Wednesday, Inc., EE Photography, and Amanda Marie Portraits makes me excited to plan a mid morning tea for my Mom and her friends. She has a lovely patio with large beams across the top. They are easy to reach by latter and would be a great place to fasten a dozen or so umbrellas. What a pretty set up for a morning of conversation with friends.

Swirl Embroidered Dress (via WhiteHouseBlackMarket)

This would be a perfect summer wedding dress. I wish this had been around last year! It's exactly what I was looking for. Last year they had a dress with this top but it was a pencil bottom. I am not a pencil kind of girl.

Also with this dress, someone with some sewing skills could add more flair at the bottom. (Note to self: must learn to sew!)

This dress is under $200. The bride can actually move around and dance. For hot outdoor weddings the bride may actually be comfortable. Shocking I know. I KNOW!

Book Vases (via DIY Bride)

Terri and Adam put some sweat into this wedding and what a lovely outcome! I love the challenge of centerpieces and I would have loved to have been a guest at this wedding.

Happy Necklace (by Piano Bench Designs)

I use to think in terms of favors. OK, I still mostly due. But now that my sister is getting married, I think in terms of gifts one gives a friend who's getting married. The best gift is help (check) but something shiny never hurt either.

This adorable necklace comes by way of creative hands Piano Bench Designs.
