Inspiration 101: Blues and Violets

We love that fall is around the corner and with that brings the inspiration for rich, deep wedding colors. Anything blue works for us and pairing it with shades of violet makes for a dramatic and brilliant emsemble. Accents of silver and a light blue can enhance the overall effect.

It's All in the Details: Menu Cards

Have fun with your wedding accessories! That includes menus that can add your colors and style on to your dining tables. Not only do they communicate to your guests, they can also serve as a d├ęcor element. We especially love our circle menus from Spark Letterpress – they can sit on the charger or in lieu of a plate.

Dessert Bars - Scrumptious and Delicious

Everyone looks forward to weddings, not only because of the beautiful ceremony or the bride walking down the aisle or the dancing, but the cake!  Cake is always so delicious and a wonderful tradition for any wedding.  However, we have discovered a new love for dessert bars.  Dessert bars can add variety with homemade goods, candy, cupcakes, and any other sugary goodness, you can think of.  Amy Atlas started it all with her gorgeous dessert bars and now we are seeing the trend everywhere. If you are looking for a new way to make your wedding original, pick out your favorite treats, colors, or even have your family and friends bake their favorite goodies for a unique, scrumptious dessert table.

Centerpieces with Simplicity

Floral arrangements are often the standard for weddings; however, sometimes the right touch of simplicity can take a table from boring to elegant.  We love the idea of buying vintage vases and adding just a few understated flowers to complete your table centerpieces.  Vintage vases are not always easy to come by, but think what does your grandma or mother own that can add that vintage family, personal touch.  These pictures from Ruffled may give you some brilliant ideas to make your own.

We're Crazy About: Rustic Table Numbers

After looking at a variety of rustic wedding sites this past week, I started searching to find the perfect pieces to complete that wedding.  After some searching and many great ideas, BraggingBags Shop on Etsy had the perfect element to spice up your centerpieces.  Table numbers can be tricky to make them creative and original, but BraggingBags Shop has just the right details: chalkboards, rustic picture frames, and wooden hearts.  All of them just add a little touch of rustic that every table needs. Add some flowers and candles, and you have yourself an amazing looking and easy to find table for your guests.

Just as Monique uses the most beautiful fabrics, laces and accents in her gowns, her invitations are crafted with the finest papers, ribbons and printing processes.

The paper quality of Monique Lhuillier’s wedding invitations is immaculate using rich, luxurious papers of 100% cotton and vellum combined with flawless printing processes lend a refined texture and feel to Monique’s designs.
