With so many couples getting ready to say “I Do” this upcoming wedding season, we thought we’d visit a topic often overlooked: adding whimsy to your wedding style. Whimsy simply means fun. A small dose of playfulness to your wedding will bring smiles to your guests and leave that ever-lasting impression. It can be a fun poem read during the ceremony, a surprise dance at the reception or a taco truck for a late night snack. These whimsical details should be something that makes you smile as a couple and capture who you are. Do you share a special pet? Do you love board games? Are you foodies? In fact, food offers easy and great ways where you can add some whimsy to your wedding. Here are some fun ideas:
I’m obsessed with marbleized wedding details right now! It’s such a cool trend that is perfect for a fresh spring or summer wedding. Marbleized wedding decor goes well on just about everything from stationary, linens and even vessels. It’s perfect for that artsy, whimsical and lighthearted couple and great DIY projects that you could work on together. Check out the great tutorial at Green Wedding Shoes on how to create your own marbled paper .
Spring is in the air! Flowers are in bloom, birds are chirping and the days are getting longer. And with Easter just around the corner we thought what better way to mark the season than a spring inspired wedding celebration. Lush flowers, soft palettes, and outdoor ceremonies are the perfect way to celebrate this gorgeous holiday!
Alright, all you love birds, here’s a fun Valentine’s Day shoot to inspire your own great day. Now Valentine’s Day can be celebrated with your special someone or a group of your closest girlfriends. We teamed up with the talented Erica B Photography and set the scene for a perfect girls-only gathering. Inspired by the beautiful runner, we pulled in shades of yellow, orange and forest green to compliment the more popular V-Day colors of ruby red and light pink. Add some simple refreshments and hors d’oeuvres… and Voilà, you have the perfect setting for a festive get together! Hope you make this Valentine’s a special one with your loved ones.
He just popped the question over the holidays and you said “Yes!” But before you go straight into wedding planning why not savor this moment and have an engagement party. An engagement party is a great time to celebrate and introduce key people from your lives. More couples are hosting their own parties these days. The party itself does not have to be over-the-top and should not upstage the wedding. And don’t worry if you haven’t settled on a color palette or don’t have a wedding date in mind yet. A low key gathering with simple decor and yummy appetizers are enough to get everyone excited for that BIG day to come! Here are some great ways to create a relaxed and festive party.
