Technicolor Beauty

Posted in Uncategorized

When we saw these photos pop up over on Green Wedding Shoes a few days ago, we were pretty much left speechless:

The color! The detail! We couldn’t go another day without sharing this technicolor beauty. Check out the full post here, or just browse through come of our favorite photos below.

We love the use of bright bold colors, especially since the couple chose a children’s museum as their venue (it just fits, doesn’t it?). From the bride’s sparkly shoes, to the paper airplane seating cards, to the colored glass on the tables and in the windows… everything about this wedding is fun and evokes a sense of happiness.

Gel-licious!

Posted in Inspiration, Wedding Trends

Are you ready for this gelee? (Sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves)

If you’re a bride who loves ideas that are “outside of the box”, make sure you take a second to check out these unique bites. If the temps keep rising, we’ll be in the kitchen making double batches of these chilly little treats!

Alcohol-spiked gelees (that’s fancy jello) are a huge trend in wedding food right now. The recipe above caught our attention a few weeks ago, and we’ve been mixing test batches ever since (our friends aren’t complaining!). Whether they’re made with wine (like Martha’s, above), champagne, or liquor, your guests will be giddy to get their hands on them. Serve them on the patio during a summer wedding to cool everyone down, or line them up on the dessert bar on pretty cake plates. However you present them, they’re guaranteed to be a hit!

Sweet Notes

Posted in Inspiration

Weddings are full of love, laughter and the people who bring you both. Those who mean the most to you will be supporting you on your big day and, sometimes, it’s hard to find the right way to say, “thank you.” We’ve always been fans of a handwritten note, but we love making it even more personal with a card that’s just right. So we were over the moon when we discovered Tallu-lah letterpress on Wedding Paper Divas.

Tallu-lah has created cards for everyone in your wedding. From the flower girl to the usher to your mother-in-law, there’s a little something special for each of them. Below are a few of our favorites, but take a peek at the website to view the entire collection!

Honeymoon Dreams – Valentino Resort 2013

Posted in Uncategorized

When couture resort wear hit the runway last year, there was only one thing on our minds… we need a vacation!

Valentino brought our favorite collection by far. With everything from suit separates to lacy dresses, his 2013 resort collection had us dreaming of honeymoons from Paris to Panama. The line features floral prints, sheer fabrics, and unexpected stripes. And there are plenty of bridal-white dresses… perfect for brides hosting weddings in tropical climates. Just imagine the floor length white gown making it’s way down the aisle at a Grecian wedding! Or the bright green pant suit strolling along the Seine. Wherever you’re traveling for your honeymoon, you’re sure to be inspired by these beautiful works of art!
