periwinkle wedding details, something blue

I know many brides have trouble fitting in that ‘something blue’, especially when they might not have blue in their color palette. But here are a few ideas to get that blue in your wedding. Above, periwinkle blue tulle. You can buy tulle at your local fabric store and have a local seamstress make a simple crinoline for under your dress. Below, embroider your 3 letter initials on your bouquet ribbon (your initial on the left, the last name in the middle and his initial on the right) or have the inside of your dress embroidered with your date and … Read more

tropical and citrus wedding details

We loved this wedding from Southern Weddings, photographed by KT Merry. Our palette of pinks and greens has a bit of ‘rust’ in the palette this week… which you could tweak to be a bit more orange to make a fun tropical color palette. Shot on location at the Boca Raton Restort & Club in Florida, we certainly don’t mind dreaming of warmer days under palm trees.

jen huang photography & her gorgeous blog

Although I have worked with many photographers that we have featured here on my blog, there are of course so many great photographers out there that I haven’t worked with and there is one lately I keep coming back to- Jen Huang. I love her style and that she can capture both the details, the essence of a location and the people (not so many photographers are good at both). Her main site has a handful of featured weddings and celebrations so you can see her overall style, but I love her blog. She posts many more shots there … Read more

message in a bottle, a clever seating card idea

We love this “neutral” seating card idea. Sand and creams are a gorgeous color palette for a wedding or celebration and these creative messages in a bottle will be sure to make your guests smile. On the outside, the guests names and on the opposite side of the paper, the table number. Just make sure the guests’ names are visible and it’s best to put them in alphabetical order so they can easily find their name. This can also work for a small gathering as well like you see in the photo above. For a large event, glass or lucite … Read more

fruit can take the place of flowers for your centerpieces

Compotes or bowls of fruit can be beautiful centerpieces. Forgo the costly floral arrangement and pick up a fruit that coincides with the color palette of your wedding or celebration. Clementines, oranges and kumquats (which symbolize good luck in Asia) are a perfect choice this time of year. Above clementines and kumquats are paired with succulents for a chic table setting. Mixing gold, silver and glass as neutral elements allow the orange to pop. Having a lot of guests for the holidays?
