The Look: Tropical Destination Glam

4 May

To go along with today’s destination inspiration board, here is a little fashion/style inspiration. The bride to be wanted a flowy white gown and loved this bouquet of mixed pinks. Borrowing the pale pink shades from the bouquet would be perfect for nails and makeup. I love a chunky pair of bold turquoise earrings to add a pop of color to the look. If it’s a beach ceremony, a pair of turquoise jeweled sandals would be fab and then maybe a pair of heels for dancing the night away on resort the pool deck (at least until you just give up and go barefoot).

I am a big fan of today’s board, mostly because it’s for a real bride. This friend of mine knew what she wanted, but just needed a little help putting it into a cohesive board. She is having a destination in Puerto Rico with the ceremony on the beach and reception on the pool deck of the resort. She loves turquoise and pink and had an image in her head of a pink orchid against a turquoise ocean. She wanted it to be modern with a little bit of glam. She provided some great centerpiece pics – I love the blue plexi glass with the coral and candles! I thought that square chargers and bold graphic print napkins were a great way to keep the table settings modern. And how cute is the message in a bottle seating card idea? I know this wedding is going to be beautiful and I can’t wait to see pics!

Inspiration: Dia De Los Muertos Celebration!

4 Nov

I am so excited about this design! I was inspired to do this board after my friend Tom told me all about the Day of the Dead parade he just went to on a trip to New Orleans over Halloween weekend. Its actually a Mexican holiday that focuses on gathering family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Its a celebration with much eating and partying. One famous symbol of the holiday is the sugar skull which can be found in a lot of Mexican art. They are beautiful painted skulls with bright colors, so that’s what I wanted this wedding design to be about. I love all the color. It takes the morbidity out completely. I think that it has so much potential to be a vibrant, fun and beautiful wedding! Look at the bride and groom sugar skull cake toppers. I found that little LOVE flask on Etsy and I think it would make such a great groomsmen gift (or bridesmaids if they are into that). So much potential!

Inspiration: South Beach Sizzle!

4 Oct

The turquoise, gold and white color scheme make this South Beach inspired board sizzle. I was inspired by Eva Mendez’s red carpet look. A turquoise statement necklace ads a pop to a simple but sleek white gown. The gold ads some glam to the clean color palette, which is a must to capture that luxe South Beach style. This would be great for a posh beachside hotel venue. A pool to fill with lit candles is a plus! Lots of white with punches of turquoise and subtle gold accents, so stylish and so SoBe.
