Tuesday’s Trendwatch – Fashion Color Report

January 31, 2012

Many of the local trend research companies report updated data for the Fashion Industry, in general for each season. The best part about many of these reports is that they can EASILY transcend into all things Bridal. If you think – especially in regards to color – rolling these trends into not only your bridesmaids dresses, but your florals, your invites and even your linens.

The Pantone Fashion Color Report for Spring 2012 was debuted during New York Fashion Week. Many of these colors speak of “renewed energy” and would be beautiful when translated into any Wedding setting planned for Spring forward.

I dream in Tangerine Tango….

Tuesday’s Trendwatch – Video Inspiration

January 3, 2012

I am addicted….I admit it.

I am addicted to watching and catching glimpses into other couples wedding day. Seeing the emotion. Understanding their joy. It brings me such happiness that I know can’t even compare to the feeling of eternal love these couples are experiencing right at that moment.

I catch myself, losing hours to my day watching videos such as this. It never fails, I might shed a tear or two.

Enjoy one of my favorites below and hopefully you can capture a little joyful inspiration on this beautiful Tuesday.

Tuesday’s Trendwatch – Pinterest Craze

October 25, 2011

Okay, I’ll go ahead and admit…. I’m addicted.  Never in my life did I think that technology would take over my life like it has, but the new{-ish} site Pinterest is one that you have to check out.  I warn you, an hour will go by and you won’t know what you have done with yourself.  Except, you will now how this fabulously-stylish-all things you-storyboard that you can “ohh and aww” over for days and days.

A friend of mine suggested I join and next thing I know I am searching for all things wedding.  What have other people “pinned”?  What sort of inspiration can I pull?  How in the world could people be THAT creative?  I was floored… and I’ll admit for a second time, I was addicted.  You can search for pretty much anything.  I have been mostly inspired by decorations, invitations, cakes and unique wedding photography.  I have below some of my “pinned” favorites.  There are  just so many “why didn’t I think of that” moments… and I would love for you to share your favorite Pins with us as well!

Wedding Tips

Tuesday’s Trendwatch – Classic Dining Options

October 18, 2011

As I have said many times before, Tuesday’s Trendwatch doesn’t always have to be about Fashion.  Trending can be seen in every aspect of your wedding – even in the little tiny details.  This week, I want to touchbase on your dining options.  Outside of the dress and the ceremony, the reception is where you always want to give your guests the “WOW” factor.  You spend countless hours on the decorations, lighting, flowers and cake.  We have been able to define the different dining options based on the wedding celebration that you choose to have.

1.  Sit-down Dinner:   This would be chosen by couples who would like a more quiet, more formal and traditional meal.  This is also done when couples would like to do actual wine pairings with different courses or selections of the meal.

2.  Cocktail Party:  This is usually done by couples on a budget or those with a later night reception {ie. 8pm}.  It cues your guest to possibly grab a bite to eat before hand.  With a cocktail party, you also signal that your reception should last under 3 hours.

3.  Casual Supper:  This is chosen by couples with close-knit friends and family that really and truly enjoy that a simple backyard barbecue.   The tight family and friendships with the simple-less-fuss kind of dinner.

4.  Food Stations:  Also known as a buffet.  This is for couples who would like to offer several different entrees for dinner.  This gives you a free-slowing atmosphere – letting you guests know that “anything goes”.

Many Brides have started leaning towards one of the two – the Sit-Down dinner or the Backyard Barbeque.  Keeping the guests always on their toes.  But no matter what you chose, it’s truly perfect for YOUR day.
