Spring is in full bloom and along with it comes Wedding Season!!…Which is why this months theme is Wedding Trends! I am in love with all the fresh Minty inspiration popping up in the wedding scenes. So cool and classy, you can showcase the minty hues in modern, vintage, or classic styled celebrations. It can be your main color throb or a fresh accent. However you choose to use it, this color is definitely here to stay all year long!

Summer Summer Summer Time!


Well Summer is officially here! Thank Gawd b/c I was slumping in the fact that I still had to wear leggings and boots every so often. I have put away all my bulky winter / fall stuff and spread out my dresses….These images definitely conjure up the fun in the sun feeling with lively colors, warm summer nights, glitzy golds and that burnt orange leather….and we must not forget the Popsicles!!

We have some weddings to work, some weddings to attend, baby showers galor, and lots and lots of travel!! Next post will be on that!! Cant wait!

What are your summer plans?

Flower Feature: Anemones

Today I want to put the spotlight on special little flower that packs a big punch when included in floral decor. Anemones…
These flowers are so mysterious and dramatic. Delicate & dark at the same time.
I especially love how they add classiness to a very sophisticated black and white wedding palette.

Dont you just love the monochromatic look of an “all anemone” bouquet?
These lovelies are popular for adorning cakes for yet again, a simplistic and sophisticated look.

I love the slight tinge of powder pink in these pictured below and how they can also dress up and compliment a vintage rustic look.

Black and white too plain for you? Still like the structure of these beauties? Dont you worry, they come in many colors…including…
RED!!

Upcoming Trend: Vintage Brooch Bouquet

Ive been seeing these mentioned all over twitter the past couple days so I had to check it out! and sure enough…they are gorgeous. To be honest I haven’t seen these before. Vintage Brooch Bouquets…made custom for your wedding!! What a great keepsake for your big day! Imagine incorporating a brooch from your grandma, or mom rather than just wearing or fastening it to your floral bouquet.

There were so many to look at…just google-ing “vintage Brooch bouquet” but I did stumble upon the site of Fantasy Florals (picture above and below) through Brenda’s wedding Blog. She does amazing work. You can check out her blog where she talks about her process as well as testimonies from brides. Seriously beautiful stuff!!

I also had to search my beloved “etsy” to see what they had going on in the brooch bouquet department…and they didn’t let me down. I especially liked the work and presentation of seller: TheRitzyRose. Some of their work is pictured below.

These gorgeous beauties can range you from a couple to a few hundred dollars…but with how beautiful and unique each one is, it may be worth trying to stretch a few dollars.
