Sage Wedding Inspiration

Posted on September 5th, 2012 by annalemberger

Throughout history, sage has been the go-to herb for curing several medical ailments and warding off evil spirits. One old saying even asks, “Why should anyone die who has sage in their garden?” A mighty herb indeed! Along with its amazing prowess as an herb, sage provides wonderfully earthy color inspiration for an autumn wedding. Pair sage with golden hues for an added elegance. Get creative with sage by including the fragrant leaves in the bridal bouquet and boutonnieres. Plus, you can feel confident knowing no evil spirits will be walking down the aisle with you!

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.

White Lace Wedding Inspiration

Vintage-inspired lace details are making a statement on bridal runways this year. Lace evokes a sense of timeless elegance and delegate beauty that is appropriate for any bride and wedding theme, from elegant to rustic. Pair lace details with other white fabrics and elements, like satin and ostrich feathers. Emphasizing texture and pattern over color creates a truly unique look that shows off the beauty of subtle and intricate details.

Partying Poolside: Summer Wedding Inspiration

Posted on June 12th, 2012 by annalemberger

When a friend of mine told me she would be attending a wedding with a post-nuptuals pool party I was initially a little thrown. Backstrokes and bikinis are not typical elements of a wedding or reception. However, with a little forethought and creativity, a pool or poolside soiree is really a fun way to enjoy the weather and to make your summer wedding unique. Plus it is a great alternative for couples who want the feel of a tropical, destination wedding without the travel hassle and cost. Check out my ideas below for different ways to use the swimming pool as a setting for your wedding.
