Apple Orchard - Dessert

I saw these apple cupcakes when I was killing some time in a Barnes and Noble. Check out "What's New Cupcake? Ingeniously Simple Designs for Everyday Living" by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson. Such a cute idea, but I'll have to leave the mass production of these to the professionals!

Apple Orchard - Cake

I love the look of the cake by JenniferMI all I would have to change is the pears ->apples. I think there would have to be at least one cinnamon style tier.

Apple Orchard - Apples Everywhere

So it may seem like overkill but I swear I'd include the usually yummy for along with the themed food!

I think a family friendly and adult version of apple cider would be fun for cocktail hour.
Apple cider donuts would be great as appetizers that are passed around during the cocktail hour.
I couldn't forget apple pie as an alternate/ extra to the cake.
I'm not a fan of candy apples because they've always hurt my teeth, but I don't want to deprive others of that fun!

The apple place cards is an idea that I have seen in a few spots and seems like a really good idea.

Apple Orchard - Bridal Bling

So I found 3 necklaces that could be contenders for my wedding day. I'm thinking that I may have to buy all 3 and then decide!

Apple Orchard - Bridesmaids

The idea for the wedding party has changed drastically since I started working on this month, and I'm very happy with the results! This red necklace was the first one I found that i actually liked. I want one that's long enough that the girls can wrap it around twice and still have length. The dress is simple and cute enough that you could accessorize anything with it an still look amazing!

Apple Orchard - Groom

While I was doing some research for this wedding, I saw a group of groomsmen in gray tuxes and I thought it would be perfect for this wedding.

Apple Orchard - Flowers and More

I love this idea for the bridesmaids because it will last and can be made far in advance of the wedding. It will also be exactly the color I want it to be because I can find the ribbon myself. All the directions can be found here: DIY Divas

Bridal bouquet will be red poppies, which I love because they're so different and will really pop against my dress.

Apple Orchard - Bride

I wanted something simple but elegant and I'm hoping to find a jacket/cover up like the one on this dress. Since the wedding will be at an apple orchard and I love Disney, I couldn't help wanting to find one with a collar that reminds me of the one worn by Snow White.

I really like the top on this dress by Galina but it's attached
While the first dress is cute, it's not really me. I'd rather wear something more like this David's Bridal dress

Apple Orchard - Invitations

I tried to find an invite that was as cute as this suite from etsy seller ohsosuite. I particularly like the detailed weekend card because it reminds me of a chalk board and an apple for the teacher (which we both are)

Apple Orchard - Inspirations

I've never really like red and green together -- makes people think of christmas. However if you choose the right shades of red and green, you can come up with some pretty results.
