Copper Sets Autumn Weddings Aglow

[slide id=”Slider_id”][slide id=”Slider_id”]

Fall brings warmth and glow with burnished leaves, amber afternoons and evening firelight. Copper’s earthy radiance makes it the favored metallic of this season. We found inspiration in an exquisite Indian bride, runway fashions from Elie Saab And Meadham Kirchoff, and a gleaming barn wedding with a glittering cake by City View Bakehouse. Stir the embers of your autumn celebration with coppery accents, accessories and decor.

Pop! Balloon Magic for Your Wedding Design

When you think of the different kinds of parties you have been to in the Tri-State Area (or even elsewhere), you may associate balloons with carnivals, clowns, and peewee birthday parties, certainly not weddings. You wouldn’t be wrong, but you would be missing out on what balloons can do for the more grown-up affairs. With the right design, placement, and color scheme, balloons bring elegance, charm and sophistication. It is true!

This is especially true for pale pinks versus bright reds. The only exception to this may be blues, however. The brain sees most blues as calming, so if you opt for solely darker or more vivid blues, be aware that these tones can drag the mood down.  Here is a great way to work with white balloons for sophistication, straight from the gallery of high-end balloon designer Balloon Artistry:

Ribbons, Ribbons, and More Ribbons

The flowers you pick for your bouquet and centerpieces reflect your thoughtfulness, personal tastes, and the artistry and ambience you would like share with your many special others on this day. Every little detail matters, from the shape of the petals, to the length of the stalks, to the size of blooms. And let us not forget the colors; that’s usually where the dreaming starts!

But what about the ribbons? How you wrap the bouquet translate into how it will look in the hands of others, how it will feel, whether it is feather-light and clutchable. Most of the time we come into contact with ribbons and only give them much thought when we are wrapping presents. And, unless we are in a kind of business (like a bakery or gift shop), where wrapping with elegant ribbon-work is part of the mainstay, we do not give the idea of ribbons too much thought. Read More

Trend Watch: Champagne Wishes

Silvers and golds have always been popular colors associated with weddings. Harkening back to the days of royalty, matching so elegantly with our jewelry choices, always complimenting whatever floral arrangements our creative hearts might aspire to; this is gold and silver. These two classic metallic shades have it made when it comes to most wedding color palettes.

But, as of late, a certain dark horse has taken center-stage trend-wise when it comes to metallics. You’ve probably already seen it as you browse the latest wedding pins on your favorite pinterest boards, if not already considered it for your own wedding, or seen it as another.
