Recently, Ugg Australia introduced the “I Do Wedding Collection,” consisting of two boots and one comfy flip flop style that apparently brides to be should add to their wedding day wardrobe, or during the engagement period.

Plenty of brides have looked to Ugg and their knockoff competitors for their wedding day, whether it’s  hanging out in a comfy pair while getting ready….

or Winter Weather Bridal Parties trekking around town and staying cozy and warm

However.. many have not sought out a “bridal” white/silver combo- they are opting for some contrast with their dresses.

What are you thoughts, is Ugg onto something, or did they miss the mark? Would YOU wear any of these on your wedding day (getting ready, or during the actual festivities?) Comment below!

Inspiration: Unique Flower Girl Tosses

Nowadays, brides are looking for more and more ways to personalize their nuptials to make them a true reflection of their personalities and relationship. One small detail can be your flower girl and if toss. Read below for some inspiration (and adorable little girls!)

There’s certainly nothing wrong with the classic tradition of flower petals…

Having a winter wedding? Embrace the snowflake! These snowflake shaped petals are a subtle way to bring it all together :

Our clients Lindsay and Ryan used these along with white lanterns and a blue runner to line their aisle at Sequoia in January 2011:
I love this ostrich feather accented basket- just pop a few feathers in, and send her down the aisle!

Having a fall themed wedding? Consider tossing clean leaves….

Evening/whimsical, even a New Year’s wedding? I love this little girl tossing metallic, shimmery stars on her way to the aisle! Against a dark runner or floor, they will really pop!

I love garden weddings- and if you have an older flower girl, consider giving her long stemmed flowers (gerberas are available in a wide variety of colors and have sturdy stems) and she can pass a few out to guests on the aisles as she makes her way down the aisle.

Oceanside? She could toss shells (but be careful they are not sharp- we certainly don’t want her cutting yourself, or dropping harsh shells for you to step on!) Starfish would be great as well…
