I love a good beach wedding inspiration board! If you’re planning a beach wedding, you probably have a million inspiration photos like these that you’ve pulled from the web. There’s a better way of storing them than just keeping them in a folder on your desktop. Pinterest allows you to make inspiration boards of whatever topic you like. Weddings are popular, so are Parties, Food, and Decorating. This way you can share your ideas with others, your friends can add pins to your folder and you can browse through other people’s pins for more inspiration. At the moment, it’s still invite only. Just ask around your circle of friends. Chances are a few of them are on Pinterest already and can send you an invite. I should tell you though, it’s very addicting! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

How cute are these papel picado invitations? These would be perfect for a destination Mexico wedding and best of all you can make them yourself. For directions check out Oncewed’s blog.

MEXICO, is my personal favorite, of course 🙂

I love these sweet parent photos from Christine Chang Photography! They’re full of emotion and very real. For more photos check out her blog.

Chalkboard signs have been trendy for a while at weddings.  They can be used as signs directing people to the ceremony and as a drink sign next to the bar. They also looks great as a big menu that lets guests know what they will be served and saves you the trouble of printing out a 100 mini menus! If your handwriting is anything like my chicken scrawl, you might want to ask your artsy friend with the pretty penmanship to help out, hire someone, or do it yourself with the trick mentioned in this Ruffled post.
