When it comes to feathering a newlywed nest, nothing's more fun than accessorizing with some of those "his & hers" items we all love so much. Lately, we've been falling for the Mr. & Mrs. pillow cases we've seen popping up just about everywhere. Have you seen them? They're downright dreamy! And p.s. -- they make a super sweet shower gift for the favorite couple on your list. Here are eight of our favorites. Which tops your list?

Although Brandon and Lindsay grew up in the same state, attended the same college in Kansas (from which they graduated the same year), AND moved to Dallas the same summer, they didn’t meet until mutual friends introduced them about a year after they moved to Dallas. Talk about fate!
Today, we're taking a look at their oh-so-pretty turquoise and gold wedding in Dallas. Enjoy!
Most grooms will choose to wear an elegant boutonniere on their wedding day. We love this tradition as it adds a nice detail to the groom's look, but for those of you partaking in this tradition, we have one bit of advice: order an extra one. We can't tell you how many grooms we've had come up to us after the ceremony, during their reception or even earlier with smushed boutonnieres. And honestly, once it's been smushed from all the hugs you've received from family and friends there is little we can do.
So what we have done to remedy this is ask the florist to include a fresh 'cake cutting' boutonniere in your order. Sometimes they'll even throw this in complimentary. So now whether you need a fresh one before your Grand Entrance or Cake Cutting, at least we have one on hand so you look perfect for the photos!

A little bit of rain couldn't ruin this couple's wedding day. Even though they had planned to be outside and take some photos outdoors, they made the best of the rainy day by continuing forward with smiles on their faces. And we think that they ended up with some adorable umbrella photos thanks to the rain.

What is one of your favorite offerings at your hotel for wedding couples?
There are two things we do for our wedding couples that I love. The first is their luxurious overnight sleeping room the night of their wedding. The amenities that we offer are unmatched by any other hotel within the Mission Valley. Secondly, we have a transformable 5,000 square foot hillside terrace that is absolutely perfect for any kind of ceremony or reception up to 400 people. You can create any atmosphere that you envision because it is a clean, neutral space for your creating!
One of my personal favorite wedding trends is watercolored details. These dainty designs add a whimsical and utterly swoon-worthy touch to any paper good. That's why I'm so excited to see so many gorgeous watercolor save the dates available. Here are just a few of my favorites:
Hey there, MHW readers! Have you heard about The Craftista? It's a Texas-based Etsy shop specializing in custom jewelery, and the super sweet designs totally stole our hearts!

Sarah and Luis tied the knot in a gorgeous white tie wedding on their 7-year anniversary (which they refer to as their “7-year hitch”). Each detail of their big day was carefully crafted and personalized by the couple, from their rings to the décor and even the textiles. It’s truly a breathtaking celebration!
Today's tip for the groom is to remember to eat and enjoy your wedding day! Too often the men forget to take care of themselves on their wedding day. You can easily accomplish this by pre-ordering lunch if you're in a hotel through In Room Dining or have one of your groomsmen pick up sandwiches and snacks. Also remember to stay hydrated as you'll most likely have a night of heavy drinking once you've said "I Do."
And as a reminder, here are some of the past tips we've put together for grooms:
