Eco-Friendly Wedding Ideas with REEDS Jewelers + Ecoura

Family owned, REEDS Jewelers has been providing gorgeous jewelry since 1948 with stores now in several states across the country. They have recently partnered with Ecoura, a designer brand to launch their bridal collection of eco-friendly engagement rings and matching wedding bands. To celebrate, REEDS Jewelers and Ecoura are giving away one of their engagement rings on a Pinterest contest. Read on for details on how to enter and get pinning boys and girls!



With a strong passion for nature, Ecoura set about creating scrumptious engagement rings and wedding bands from renewed gold – with one ring saving between 5 to 20 tons of environmental waste. Their eco-friendly practices also include planting a new tree for every engagement ring purchase, which to us sounds like the perfect omen to start a marriage. Your engagement ring will not only turn into an heirloom as years go by, but it will also help the green movement around the world to bring back fresh forests. You can view Ecoura’s entire bridal collection at REEDS Jewelers and bookmark your favorites for later, kwim? Hashtag hint hint.

Nile Inspired Wedding Ideas

From the delicate jewelry to the Sphinx cat to the buttery images from Debbie Lourens Photography, how could you not be enthralled? Debbie and floral designer extraordinaire Anli Wahl teamed up to create this inspiring shoot with nods to the Nile and springtime colors, and I have to say we’re pretty smitten with the result!

From the photographer, Debbie Lourens: Our main source of inspiration for the Girl of the Nile shoot was definitely our Sphinx cat model, Romeo. We wanted to incorporate a cat in one of our shoots and planned everything around the Egyptian theme. Instead of going with heavy golds and coppers, we wanted to use fresh vibrant colours giving the feel of Spring. We infused corals, mints, and blues with oranges and yellows to get the vibrant colour palette. Because of the rich tones in our shoot we wanted to have our ‘bride’ wear understated clothing with just little pops of colour in her jewellery.

Romantic Hickory Street Annex Wedding

This wedding has so much to love, so you better start preparing yourself right now. Apryl Ann Photography and Blue Lotus worked to make Danielle and Benjamin’s wedding day a magical event, and it’s a no-brainer to say they had total success. Truly, how stunning is that ceremony setup?

From the bride, Danielle: I had always envisioned a jazz band at my wedding so I kind of built the theme around that. It had an inviting classic elegance about it that really did make the whole night magical! The classic elements were subtle: skinny black ties and slim fitting suits, lace, the font on the invitations, twinkle lights and music choice. The venue, food, flowers and lighting made it feel very relaxed and accessible.

I told my bridesmaids to choose a dress in the neutral color palette (nude, blush, tan, cream, gold or silver). I really liked the way metallics looked with the neutral colors! It felt like winter without being Christmasy. The flowers gave the needed pop of color. My good friend Krista made the lace runner for the head table. My mom, sisters and I potted the individual succulents for each place setting as the wedding favor. Most everything else was outsourced as I planned the wedding from out of state haha!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? 1. Don’t take out wedding stress on your fiance!!! The whole process is very taxing but it only makes things 10x worse if your relationship suffers for it. 2. Don’t procrastinate. Just don’t do it! 3. Delegate. It was really hard for me to do this. I was planning a wedding in Texas from North Carolina so I needed to trust my friends and family to handle things for me but it was really hard to give up control of every little detail. They were perfectly capable and did an amazing job, but I would have been a lot more relaxed if I had delegated more. You will drive yourself crazy if you don’t let people help you! I was even worried my fiance would put the stamps on the invitation crooked so I let him seal them but I put the stamps on haha! I promise I wasn’t a Bridezilla, just a little neurotic :).
