You can never go wrong with an art museum as your wedding venue. You’re surrounded by gorgeous works of art and history and the outdoor courtyards are perfect for a reception. Nisse + Matt got married at The Art Institute of Chicago a year after getting engaged, trying to plan a move from Chicago to Boston, graduate medical school, and start new jobs. Whew! But they did it. And they did it beautifully with the help of photographer, Olivia Leigh. The colors, florals, their ceremony, DIY watercolor escort cards, glittery touches, and desserts… gorgeous!
We love us a short bridesmaid dress, maybe a little more than a full length one. They’re just so fun and easy to wear again! And since we’ve always been fans of The Dessy Group, we were stoked to hear about their new brand, 57 Grand, an exclusive collection of styles inspired by New York City. The new collection of short dresses is perfect for bridesmaids who want to look fab at the wedding but also want to use the dresses again for other formal occasions. Take a peek!
The Dessy Group is the preeminent bridesmaid manufacturing company with a cadre of brands under its umbrella, including iconic brands such as After Six, Alfred Sung, and Lela Rose.
This spring 2013 collection will be available exclusively through the Bella Bridesmaid chain of bridesmaid boutiques and select other bridal retailers in the U.S., Canada, and the United Kingdom.

Things are about to get really cute up in here. Confetti Pop founders, Maddy Hauge and Shauna Younge, plus a team of majorly creative vendors from Minneapolis collaborated on this anything but conventional Valentine’s Day shoot. With tons of geometric shapes and gem tone inspired hues to add some punch to the typical soft, romantic vibe of the holiday, we think these pink, gold and white ideas would make a perfect engagement party, wedding, or Valentine’s Day dinner party!
The ladies of Confetti Pop were kind enough to share their DIY tutorial for this geometric honeycomb backdrop.
The Knot Dream Wedding voting began for the sweetest vote of them all.. the cake! Go on over and give your opinion on which cake you think goes best with the modern wintry theme of Sierra and Andre’s wedding. The runners up are (clockwise) Frost, Silver and Sparkle, Sugary Orchids, and Windswept. Our favorite is definitely the Windswept, with that lovely sugar bloom. Yum.
