Sunday Links – March 19

Have you celebrated St. Patrick’s Day two weekends in a row? Are you regretting that 2 AM Guinness? Are you shocked at the pile of green beads adorning your bedside table? No worries, readers, this is a safe space. And now, for your Sunday morning links:

Not sure you want to go through the trouble of having an engagement photo shoot? Here’s why you should.

Flower girl baskets are used once and then donated to charity. Why not give your flower girl something practical to use to distribute petals now and then hold her toys and fake makeup later? Martha Stewart has some great suggestions for tiny purses that will serve both purposes.

IKEA’s new JASSA Collection is everything you need to decorate for your mehndi, sangeet, wedding, and life.

These blue Valentino heels make us want to go shopping and buy all of the things. Other things we love about this wedding: men in teal moccasins, photos on his and hers swings, milk and cookies favors.

Norm Kelly’s theory is that Mondays ruin Sundays. Let’s not let that happen today, eh? And now, for your links:

Looking for inspiration for how to style your hair (or your bridesmaids’ hair, or your mom’s hair, or . . . you get the picture) for your wedding? The UK blog Wedding and Wedding Flowers has gathered the best looks from Pinterest to aid in your search. The best part? There are hairstyles specifically for Indian weddings — tikkas and all!

We are huge fans of hosting mehndi parties at home, partly as a way of keeping costs down and partly because it’s nice to be at home, surrounded by your family and friends, just before the chaos of your wedding. Mother Nature can help you decorate: push your henna event into the great outdoors! Put some tikki torches on the lawn and light all of the diyas that your parents have been hoarding for the past 30 years. The final touch? Buy a few inexpensive, brightly patterned rugs to throw on the lawn, and toss some comfy throw pillows on top. It’s chic and opulent, like you’re going to a Kardashian lawn party.

Thinking of having a beach wedding? Martha’s got some inspo for you. We love the island-inspired boutonniere and sea glass cake!

Lastly, let’s all agree that it’s time to retire the word “Bridezilla.”  Either that, or we need to start calling men Groomzillas as well.
