I knew there was something special about this wedding when I saw it. Some of the biggest names in the industry pulled off this vineyard side fair oh-so beautifully. Feast your eyes on these stunning images and you’ll see what I mean. Peach and blue shades make an unexpected fall palette that is one for the books. I love the bridesmaids dresses, the contract with the men’s navy suits and peach florals. And I’m not complaining the stunning backdrop doubled as the same location for their ceremony and reception. What do you love about this peach and blue wedding?
It’s no secret that the littlest details can add so much to your Big Day—but it’s also important to consider the bigger, statement-making details. From poolside soirees and dreamy oceanfront venues, there are plenty of ways to add glamour and sophistication to your wedding day. Here are a few ways to make your wedding look expensive and more glamorous.
AT HOME ROMANCE
If you can pull off an at-home wedding, there is nothing better than a personal fee and an at home view. Treat your guests to romance and homey style.
Throw ranch dreaminess at a venue that is oh-so epic. Your guests will feel the destination love and be excited about all the details you choose. Include romantic candles, an abundance of florals and custom decor to pull off the look of the event.
ROCK THE COLOR OF THE YEAR
There’s a reason why Pantone announce’s the color of the year. Colors can make your wedding look like a million bucks if you are in line with what the trends are today. Read more about wedding trends here.
I have seen an increasing trend in rising and hanging florals. They create a romantic element that is like no other.
Bride’s of today are experimenting like never before. Brides are dressing up there ladies in mismatched dresses, textures and colors. This trend the bridesmaids are loving too to capture each ladies individual style, personality, body type and style and still makes for a cohesive look.
There’s a shift happening with the traditional formal wedding shots. Sure people are still posing perfectly formally, but today photographers are capturing more candid moments. This helps to see special moments, emotion and the feeling of the day.
INVITATIONS TO INSPIRE
Brides are becoming increasingly creative when it comes to wedding invitations. Creating beautiful invitations, maps of the entire wedding experience and including colors from the wedding.
COLOR IS BACK
Color is making a big comeback. After years of blush and neutral tones, color is coming back in a big way. I’m loving seeing these new color pallets because you are starting the next big trends in weddings!
DESTINATION IS WHERE IT’S AT
This is the year of the destination wedding! Whether you marry on a Caribbean beach, at an Italian villa or on a mountaintop out West, faraway destinations have become a significant trend. More and more brides are cutting their guest count and heading out on the road to find that perfect and sublime place to say “I do”.
Wedding design is taking notes from great restaurant design. I’m adding in custom bars and custom chandeliers with lots of lounge grouping to make even a tented event feel like a fun, hip bar. Specialty beverage services rock out a variety of imaginative custom high test drinks for discerning guests.
Food as art and entertainment is hot! Local specialties are in the limelight, and the presentation is as important as the food itself. Try a handmade burrata station, or gin cart or an oyster shucker roaming through the crowd. Create signature moments which are fun, delish and memorable.
Trees are trending so bring the outdoors inside. Trees add drama and scale to any room.
Did you hear the good news? You can save money when planning your wedding and there are many easy ways to achieve this. Every bride wants an unforgettable wedding, but that doesn’t mean it has to cost like you spent a fortunate. Here are five super easy ways to save money on your wedding.
SKIP THE FAVORS
This is more of a skip than a swap, but don’t be afraid to nix the favors to save some cash. Guests often don’t remember getting them or leave them at the venue. And then you’re stuck with 100 custom favors. Your guests know you are grateful for their presence, just be sure to send them a thank you for your gift!
HAVE A MINI CAKE
Work with your florist to add flowers to your display cake and then serve your guests a pre-cut sheet cake in the back. You can also add other mini treats to your dessert table.
Food stations are fun and interactive for guests and will save you big bucks on a formal seated dinner. Get creative with your theme and have decorative decor to go with it. Think build-your-own tacos, hand-rolled sushi, beer boat tub, wood-fired pizza – your guests will love it!
REINVENT THE PROGRAM
I love pretty paper just like every other girl, but programs can really add up on your invitation bill. If you’re tight on funds consider one large display program placed at the entrance to your ceremony space.
BORROW YOUR ACCESSORIES
Complete your bridal look with a meaningful borrowed piece from your mother, or borrow that amazing necklace from a bridesmaid to complete your bridal look. This will save some pretty pennies and will make for a more meaningful overall look. Take their accessories on loan and look like a million bucks!
Magical elegance was the bride and groom’s inspiration for this wedding and you can tell with every glamour infused detail. Combining the classic beauty of the Tuscany backdrop with moments of brilliance like the blush and navy hues, champagne moments and luscious white peonies. Get lost in all the pretty imagery captured so beautifully by the photographer. What do you love about this Tuscany wedding?
