Real Wedding – Bridget and Matthew, New York

September 6, 2013

Bridget and Matthew had a gorgeous modern wedding at the Battery Gardens in New York. I loved her choices for the table scape, mixing gold plates with white, green, pink and yellow. Her flower hair piece was the perfect accessory to go with the intricate lace on her wedding gown. And how about those shoes? One cannot go wrong with a pair of sparkly Jimmy Choos!

Tuesday’s Trendwatch – To Favor or Not to Favor

October 4, 2011

Many Brides are now seeming to ask the question – to favor or not to favor?  What direction do you go in terms of a simple “thank you” or a “remembrance” for your guests?  Honestly, Brides are starting to venture in all sorts of different directions for wedding favors.  We have officially gone outside of the traditional expectations and being suprised by what is being done.  One of my favorite favors is always something that I know that I will use or enjoy – I’m thinking take home jams and jellies – or even hot sauce {a favorite for the guys!}.  A favor that I know that I will use again and again once I get home.  Each time I use this favor, it will be such a great memory of the time that I had celebrating your special day.

On the otherhand, some brides are REALLY stepping outside the box and donating to a local charity in response to your arrival to their ceremony.  For each person that has celebrated with them – a specific $ amount will go to a specific organization.  It’s something every one of your guests will feel good about – and know that their attendance meant something to not only YOU but made a difference for someone else too.

Below are some of our favorite and unique ideas.  Let us know YOUR creative idea!

Tuesday’s Trendwatch – Fruit by the Dozen

March 15, 2011

Not all Wedding trends have to be about Fashion.  We can span these trends into decor, favors and of course {my favorite} the accessories.  Lately, I have had a serious obsession with fruit and especially decorating with fruit in my own humble abode but I have starting noticing a serious trend towards using fruit as part of your Wedding decor.  I’m just not talking centerpieces – but branching out into favors, seating charts, bouquets and even incorporating into your signature drink being served during dinner.  Send your guests away with a netted bag full of miniature lemons, telling them how sweet it was to attend your Wedding.  Or have your table with seating assignments full of bright green apples.  Cut a tiny slit in the top of each apple and to place your guests name and table number in for a unique twist on a traditional Wedding detail.  What about your bouquet?  Imagine a beautiful bouquet full of roses with bright spots of tiny nectarines.  Just talking about it gets me excited for Spring!

Venture out into unique fruit that gives you a wide array of colors – pomegranets, pears and grapefruit. Don’t be afraid to take this route with your Wedding details.  It will make your Wedding affair very classy, yet casual and oh so colorful.

Real Wedding – Amy & Forrest, Nashville, TN

September 16, 2010

Simplistic with a serious pop of color.  That’s the easiest way to describe the decedent wedding of Amy & Forrest that took place in Nashville, TN.  Amy, who is a graphic designer and has a serious love for weddings knew exactly what she wanted on her big day.  The couple had their summer wedding ceremony at Second Presbyterian Church with a {tasty} reception to follow at The Loveless Barn.  The groom chose the color of bright blue to be the core accent color of the wedding.  The bride chose different yellow tones to compliment the groom’s blues.  These colors played throughout the entire wedding ceremony, wedding party and even played into the colors of the Loveless Cafe.  The groom wore a classic black tuxedo with a fabulous bright blue bow-tie. The bride wore a simple A line gown with a v-neckline and a beautiful bow that complimented the back of her dress.  She accented it with delicate jewels and a birdcage veil with exquisite flowers that made her look just divine.  Her shoes were the same bright blue of her groom’s bow-tie.  Her flowers were of a bright yellow assortment of daisy’s and calla lilies, tied together with a beautiful blue bow.  The ceremony was simplistic and oh so romantic, just as perfect as the bride and groom would have wanted.  The reception that followed was nothing but fun – lots of dancing and lots of dining.  This was a tried and true Nashville wedding, incorporating history of this city with the bride and groom’s exquisite personalities.
