Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid

Posted on January 13th, 2014 by annalemberger

The color experts at Pantone have named Radiant Orchid the 2014 color of the year. These color lovers chose Radiant Orchid for the way it “emanates great joy, love and health.”  Those are certainly wonderful traits to infuse into your own wedding!  Orchids are wonderful inspiration for any time of year but especially for a warm, summer ceremony. And nothing says summer like soft sand between your toes. Orchids make the perfect beach wedding flower, from bright boutonnieres to blooming, fragrant cakes.  If you can’t have a destination wedding in Hawaii, just close your eyes and inhale that radiant orchid smell and you’ll be transported to an island in no time.

Cornucopia of Color: Pantone’s Fall 2012 Color Report

Posted on September 18th, 2012 by annalemberger

There is a magical moment, every year, when I wake up to nature’s color symphony; when leaves make their last stand in a shock of vibrant hues that shout “look at me!” before falling to the earth. Fall is so full of color inspiration it may be hard to know where to turn when choosing the perfect fall wedding colors. Fortunately, the color experts at Pantone have released their Fashion Color Report for Fall 2012 – a great guide for what is trending this season. While some of the usual autumn suspects are included, like Honey Gold, French Roast, Titanium, Tangerine Tango, and Ultramarine Green, there are some unique standouts. Olympian Blue is a bright choice that would pair well with Honey Gold or French Roast. Rhapsody and Pink Flambe are also quite lovely and add a feminine touch to any color scheme. But it is Rose Smoke that tops my favorite color list this fall. It’s like a soothing whisper – barely there, but oh so lovely.

A Touch of Green Wedding Inspiration

Posted on July 15th, 2012 by annalemberger

I fell in love with the White by Vera Wang bridal gown collection at David’s Bridal when I first saw the pieces in all of their satin and organza glory at a bridal showcase last fall. The gowns are timeless, flattering, fun, elegant, and relatively affordable considering the designer label. I am especially smitten with the ivory ensemble pictured below. The added ebony, horsehair sash is a spunky twist on an otherwise classic A-line, and the lace appliqué is simply stunning. With a gown like this, the only other accessories you will need are a simple headband, a ring, and a dashing groom. You may also want to throw on a garter for a little fun later! Let your wedding gown be the centerpiece of an elegant ebony and ivory wedding. Mix in splashes of vibrant light greens to represent new life and new beginnings. Make sure your guests leave their advice and wisdom for this new life chapter in a personal wedding wishes envelope guest book.

Bring on the Bling: Wedding Jewelry Inspiration

Posted on July 3rd, 2012 by annalemberger

Today I read an NPR story about an “anti-cheating ring” selling on thecheeky.com. Etched on the inside of the wedding band, the phrase “I’m Married” leaves an imprint on the wearer’s finger if the ring is removed. Needless to say, the wedding ring has caused quite a stir. What do you think about this “anti-cheating ring”?

For jewelry that is a bit more traditional and positively inspiring check out some of my favorite pieces below. The Catherine Necklace and Earring Set will add sophistication to your bridal ensemble or make a great gift for your lovely bridesmaids. One of my favorite bridal trends is the headband–a simple yet equally stunning alternative to the classic tiara. Make a statement with a gorgeous Swarovski Rhinestone Headband.
