Laser cut designs are showing up in more and more weddings. They have always been available in paper products and personally, we love the intricate look. It’s delicate and modern at the same time, such as in the invites shown below. What we are excited to see is this idea showing up on wedding cakes. It turns an all white cake into a visual statement at your reception. Guests will be staring at the lovely design wrapped around your cake all evening!
Want to make an entrance when you walk down the aisle? Then a wedding gown with laser cut details will certainly do that. Whether your dress is short or long it adds a graphic design element to something that is normally princess like. Since we are fans of bold, modern art and design we love this overall look for an event. Don’t go overboard with it but instead add a few key elements throughout your day to tie it all together. Start with the invites, then your dress and add a few interesting details at the reception such as the fun hummingbird name cards on the glasses. Have fun!

Halloween is right around the corner, this is such a fun time of the year. I love crisp cool air and warm sun. It’s fun to walk through all the colored leaves that have fallen off the tree’s and to admire the amazing palette of colors they make. We indulge in yummy treats like carmel apples and apple pie and enjoy the days before the coldness of winter arrives. Why not celebrate your wedding with a fall and Halloween theme? Each year you’ll have a fun time enjoying your anniversary and something as simple as the smell of apples baking in the oven could bring back memories of saying I do!
Here are some fun ideas to incorporate into your Halloween wedding planning. The items we’ve found below add a vintage feel to your wedding without making it feel like a kid’s party. Enjoy and happy planning!
