With all the crazy west coast weather we have been having I’m sure I’m not the only one thinking about spring time, sunshine and flowers popping up from the wet ground. With spring time comes fresh and fun colors and some fun ideas for your wedding decor. The light feeling of soft pastels is so inviting and romantic for a wedding day palette. You can choose to go soft and stick to mainly pale whites, creams and pinks or mix a variety of tones like mint green with a blushing pink. Have fun with it and let your style shine through, just like the sun shining through the rain clouds on a spring day!
Find your inspiration in the following images! Be sure to come to our spring Bridal Showcase happening Wednesday, March 26th, 2014 at the Gerding Theater at Portland Center Stage. There are a few comp tickets still available!
We love supporting other blogs and wedding sites. When it comes down to it we all pull from each other when it comes to wedding advice, tips, and decorations. There are only so many original ideas out there but what makes all these wonderful blogs thrive is we all have our own way of seeing things. We are just honored that you like the way we see things and take the time to visit our wedding blog. Our love for weddings is the special unity of two people coming together. It’s such an amazing thing for two individuals to find each other in this crazy world and know that this is the person I want to spend and enjoy life with.
A great blog named Intimate Weddings focuses on just that. Small events with less than fifty guests at them. Now you may be thinking, how is that even possible?! It is but it takes some careful planning and sticking to plans. If you want a small backyard wedding with only thirty guests then make it happen! Don’t worry about who will be hurt if they don’t attend. This is your day and if that’s what you both want then do it.
The one thing we do recommend is hiring a seasoned wedding professional. Looking back on your images brings back the day like it just happened, I truly enjoy that.
Here’s the link to view our wedding on the Intimate Wedding Blog. Also, you’ll find a great list of local Oregon wedding vendors that I used for the event. I would work with any of them again in a heartbeat and the day wouldn’t have been what it was without all their hard work. Enjoy and thanks for following us.
With the holiday season in full swing, the excitement of a new year is quickly approaching. We love the rich colors and elements of shine during this time of the year. It’s so much fun to put on some extra sparkly jewelry or a glittery top while celebrating the holidays. Why not add that element of sparkle to your wedding day? Glam it up easily with a fabulous glitter covered table cloth. It adds instant shine and puts everyone in the mood to celebrate and party! How about a just married sign covered in silver glitter or enhance your invitations with gold sparkles. There are so many ways you can add a bit of sparkle to your wedding day. Whether it’s in tones of gold or silver, you can’t go wrong with this elegant and fun texture. These sparkly ideas don’t have to be saved just for winter weddings, they would also look amazing anytime of the year! Check out of the fav’s that we found and wanted to share with you. Enjoy and Happy Holidays to all of you!
Silver and white are the perfect combo for this elegant table setting. The table cloth dresses up the the event and all the other decor stays simple.
Create your own Just Married sign. Cut holes first before adding the glitter. Head to your local craft store and find thick cardboard letters. Use a craft glue and then go crazy with the glitter! Add the sign to the back of your chairs at the reception for a little extra bling!
Stray away from the typical silver and gold for this warm rose tone. Make this the bride and groom table so you two feel extra special!
We love this simple and modern cake! The square shape with alternating silver sparkles is fabulous! Add your favorite color such as lavender to brighten it up.
