Inspiration: Put Some Passion in Your Winter Wedding

29 Oct

I have always loved the look of red and purple together. They are both such regal and passionate colors. And I think they make a great combo for a holiday wedding with some gold accents thrown in as well. How cute are the red velvet whoopie pies? And look at that little Lindt chocolate reindeer I found – wouldn’t that be a fab  favor? I’m also in love with that bouquet which subtly blends the two colors. I put Ms. Audrina in there because I love her red lips. She’d be perfect as a bridesmaid in that Anthropologie dress! I’m already getting excited for the holidays!

Colors of Passion

Inspiration: Trick or Treat? I’m going with TREAT!

28 Oct

I’ve been holding onto this board for over a week so it could be a Halloween treat and I’m excited to share it. Soooo, I’ve always kind of scoffed at the idea of a Halloween themed weddings. Makes me think of bad goth style. But then I thought about it some more and why the heck couldn’t a Halloween wedding be stylish and glam? I love a challenge so I put this little baby together and I love it! Groom in a fitted purple velvet blazer, bride in a black birdcage veil, a bridesmaid look that’s wicked witch meets chocolate covered candy apple favors (which could double as seating cards as well). I’m so in love and I so want to be invited to this wedding! And who said scary can’t be pretty?  🙂

No Tricks All Treats

If the Shoe Fits

28 Oct

What’s second best to finding the perfect dress? Finding the perfect pair of killer shoes to wear with it! Ladies, you don’t have to spend a million dollars to get an unforgettable pair of shoes for your big day. Sure we’d all love that pair of Jimmy Choo’s or Manolo’s, but you can get a fabulous pair of shoes for under $200 that you won’t be terrified to mess up on your big day. Plus, if you’re going a little more traditional with your shoes, how much use are you going to get out of a $600 pair of white shoes, know what I mean? I wore a pair of silver Jessica Simpson sling back, peep toe pumps with a little jewel cluster at the front for my wedding that I got at Nordstrom for $89 and they were gorgeous. Here are some great finds for $200 or less to feast your eyes on. Oh and check back for a colored shoe post if you’re wanting to really make a statement with your shoes!

Inspiration: Take a Walk on the Wild Side

27 Oct

Hey Ladies..and any gentlemen too. Happy hump day! For today’s board I wanted to do something a little unexpected. I tried to think of a color I haven’t developed a concept around and orange came to mind. Then I found the pic of Jennifer Goodwin in that awesome orange dress and her necklace triggered a sense of african influence to me so I ran with it. Wood textures, animal prints, exotic orange flowers (it’s really just an orange freesia but it looks exotic).  I think this concept could be super cool, but it would have to be executed very well as to not to come off too themey if you know what I mean. If it’s too out of the box for you as wedding, it would make a cool room!

On the Wild Side

The Braidy Bunch

26 Oct

Braided hairstyles are blowing up right now and I love them! They can be sleek and elegant or messy and boho. So versatile, a braid can be worked into an up-do, a half-up-half-down or an all-down style. See what brides and celebs are doing with this trend below. Swipe a style or imagine up one of your own!
