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.

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.

Spring Pastels Wedding Inspiration

Posted on April 9th, 2012 by annalemberger

I hope everyone is enjoying a lovely spring break and delicious chocolate Easter bunnies! I know I am. Spring is definitely in the air and gardens everywhere are bursting with color. Nothing says spring quite like beautiful pastel shades of pink, yellow, blue and green. Take a cue from nature and color your wedding with soft but vibrant pastel hues. These splashes of color are sure to put a spring in even your grumpy uncle’s step. If you start feeling surrounded by flowery perfumes, try a popular twist on the wedding bouquet with one made entirely of brooches. It is a great way to incorporate your “something old” and it will last forever!
