Charlottesville wedding ideas we love

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then we’d like to flatter the heck out of these couples, whose special wedding-day touches provide bushels of inspiration this season.

A fearless photo. This groom’s basket toss makes for a fun memory and captures the day’s excitement in a fresh way.

A pretty, practical gift. Lovely robes for the bridesmaids are not only something they’ll wear again, they’ll look so much better in the “getting ready” photos than jeans and a button-down.

A sparkly bouquet. Opt for rhinestone brooches instead of bright blooms for your walk down the aisle. (Bonus: If they’re vintage, there’s your “something old”!)
