Until the Ribbon Breaks

Until the Ribbon Breaks

Over the Labor Day holiday, I attended a wedding in San Antonio, Texas. The couple was absolutely in love and they had the most fun for their ribbon exit.

I have had this exit on my my mind ever since; thus, a ribbon wedding. I love adding small details to a wedding that mean something to the couple that not every might know. I like to think that this bride wore a ribbon in her hair on their first day, and it has meant something to the couple since. Here we have a whimsical ribbon backdrop, as well as, ribbons blowing in the wind from each of the bouquets. I love the texture of this cake resembling a ribbon. Of course this couple also has a ribbon exit surrounded by family and friends.

Ready, set, JUMP!

I am so sorry for the lack of wedding wednesday blog posts! Finals and the end of school last week threw me for a loop. 

This past weekend I turned 21 and took a birthday trip to Busch Gardens and Disneyworld! It was a blast! 

With adventure and adrenaline on my mind, I was inspired to create a board for the adventurous couple. This couple is ready to take the plunge with their wonderful save the date. The couple traveled to Switzerland with the closest of family and friends for an intimate wedding ceremony. Intimate weddings are such a grand way to celebrate the joining of two people. It is a great opportunity to focus on what really matters.

On Wednesday, we wear pink! Wedding Wednesday

In honor of the 10th Anniversary of Mean Girls, on Wednesdays, we wear pink! This wedding is for the all pink girly girl!  The pink backdrop for the ceremony is simple while still making a bold statement. The bridesmaids are in a blush knee length dress. The pink glittery tablecloths are the perfect touch for this lovely couple.

Stripes Wedding Wednesday

Image

Spring time for me equals stripe time. Stripes are always my go to when I need a quick and easy outfit. The touches of gold are the perfect way to dress up the simple black and white stripes. Guests are welcomed in with striped escort cards. Once seated, guests can view the menu and get to know other guests. The gorgeous cake is passed around. The night ends with a confetti exit for the happy couple!

Lemon Bunch Brunch Wedding Wednesday

Lemon Bunch Brunch

As I flipped through the Kate Spade 2014 Spring Style Guide I couldn’t help but imagine sipping lemonade on the back porch on a sunny day. This inspired a bridal shower brunch full of bright yellows and blues. Guests can chose any type of lemonade from the lemonade bar. The tables feature soft simple flowers in an array of blue colored vases. This bride is all about bold patterns in a subtle way like in this gorgeous invitation suite.

Spring Fling

With today’s gorgeous weather, not too hot and not too cold, I’ve got spring on my mind.

Imagine a bright outdoor ceremony filled with pink flowers. The brides bouquet has a mixture of pink and white flowers, as does her cake. The bridesmaids look absolutely lovely in a green cocktail dress! Pink koozies for the ladies and green for the gents! This wedding is sure to be one to remember!

Home on the Bayou

Home on the Bayou

It has been over a month since I have been home and with the upcoming Mardi Gras break I simply can’t wait! Therefore, with home on my mind, I bring you this week’s wedding wednesday: home on the bayou.

The perfect wedding for a girl from a small town. Chances are it’s featured on the front page of the local newspaper [or you can have fake ones printed and pretend like this couple]. An engagement session with a bayou backdrop is simply heavenly. This bride embraces her culture by featuring local swamp plant elements in her bouquet and the boutonnieres. Family and friends can grab a cold one from the pirogue ice chest then a “two less mud bugs” koozie. The groom’s cake features his favorite sport team [LSU of course] and his favorite seafood [crawfish]. Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band play zydeco music while guests cut a rug late into the night.

Beachful Thinking

beach

I apologize for the delay in posting my Wedding Wednesday board. Finance tests come before blogging. =/

As the sun peaks out of the clouds in good ole Baton Rouge, I am wishing I was on the beach. I want to spend all of my time outside to soak it in while I can [not like me at all]. This inspired me to build a perfectly romantic sunny beach wedding.

The ceremony will take place with sandy toes and guests will enjoy a beautiful beachside reception. A simple sand like design on an ivory cake is the perfect adornment. This is the perfect beach wedding getaway. Can I be at the beach now?

NYC Fashion Week Glam Wedding Wednesday

GlamWedding

In honor of Mercedes-Benz New York City Fashion Week, I thought I would create a wedding for the ultimate glam girl.

Imagine a simple and elegant with pops of unexpected glamour. That is this bride. Her bridesmaids are wearing this gorgeous red maxi skirt by Mark and Estel with a black fur coat. The brides’ flowers are elegant with a hint of black feathers. Both the invitation and cake are a simple ivory with metallic gold touches. This bride is rocking her sparkly gold Christian Louboutins like she is on the red carpet.

Bouquet: Afloral

Invitation: Lucky-Luxe

Cake: Hey There, Cupcake!

Wine-Oh Wedding Wednesday!

Vineyard Wedding

Monday night, one of my really good friends hosted a wine ice cream tasting. During the “ice storm” last week she tweeted Mercer’s Dairy in a desperate plea, and to her surprise, they sent 6 pints! I am not a big wine drinker, but I must say it was pretty tasty (especially the chocolate).This tasting inspired me to make the ultimate wine-oh wedding board. This wedding takes place just before sunset at vineyard off the coast of Southern California. The bride is in a lace gown with a bouquet full of ivory and blush flowers. Guests will have a seated dinner on the vineyard lawn as they watch the sunset. After cutting the cake atop a gorgeous glittered table, guests will be served a taste of the raspberry wine ice cream. Family and friends each get to take a bottle of wine from the vineyard after dancing into the night.
