Posted on December 13th, 2010 by Mandy Webster

snowflake wedding favors for the winter weddingWhile winter may not be the obvious season to plan a wedding, there are many advantages to getting married in the colder months. Picture the bride, wrapped in a chic fur stole. An elegant bed and breakfast with stained glass windows decorated for a Victorian Christmas. Flower girls and bridesmaids in buttoned-up Victorian era boots under vintage gowns. But don’t stop there. While a winter wedding may the ideal backdrop for a vintage wedding, it’s also an excellent choice for a more modern wedding.

And don’t forget, you can save a lot of money when planning a winter wedding! Winter is generally considered the ‘off’ season as far as weddings are concerned. So, you may be able to find tons of discounts on wedding items during these colder months.

Wedding Inspirations: Heart Themed Wedding

Posted on October 15th, 2010 by Mandy Webster

Heart Themed wedding collage

Every happy couple wants a wedding that symbolizes their love and commitment to one another. And, nothing says love like the classic heart shape that represents the center of human emotion in Western culture.

Heart History

The heart as we know it today was first popularized in the Victorian era. However, it’s origins are far older. In fact, this ancient symbol has been traced back to a time before the last ice age! The symbol has been found in ancient Cro-Magnon pictograms… although, there’s no way to know if it held the same meaning for these ancient hunters as it does for us today. (Probably not.)

While a totally overblown heart themed wedding is ‘so last-century,’ artfully placed heart decor can add the perfect touch of romance to any wedding without coming off as too kitschy.

The Platinum Hearts Program Paper Kit – Half Fold (also available in Tri-Fold) is a perfect example of a small heart embellishment with its platinum silver hearts and white organza ribbon. And the great thing about these wedding invitations is they are Do It Yourself!

Ancient Egyptians viewed the heart as the ‘center of life and mortality,’ while the Greeks considered it “the center of the soul and the source of heat within the body.” And, Roman author, Ovid once wrote, “Although Aesculapius himself applies the herbs, by no means can he cure a wound of the heart.” (From Timeline: Heart in History.)

Wedding Inspirations: A Wedding in Paris

Posted on October 8th, 2010 by Mandy Webster

A collage of romantic images from a Parisian themed wedding.What do you think of when you dream of Paris? The Eiffel Tower, the Champs-Élysées? Maybe you dream of the pâtisserie or the aroma of fresh baked bread wafting from the boulangerie. Or, perhaps you imagine yourself a writer or an artist in the 1920s, meeting with your contemporaries at a street side cafe?

No matter what specific details come to mind when you think of this famous city, for most, Paris is the city of romance, the city of love. And what better way to plan a romantic wedding than with a Parisian theme?

The Bride

The birdcage veil pictured at right is one of the hottest trends for 2010 and is also the perfect choice for your Parisian Modern Chevron jewlery setwedding. Pair this with a retro 1920s or 30s style dress or glam it up with a modern couture sheath. If you choose a contemporary styled bridal gown, then you might like the Chevron Jewelry Set pictured at right. A retro gown would be better paired with vintage jewelry. Either choice would look beautiful and elegant with a strapless wedding dress. Complete the look with a simple handbag and couture shoes.

The Wedding Party

No bridesmaid wants to spend a fortune on yet another ugly dress to stuff in the back of her closet, never to be worn again. Instead, put your bridesmaids in a Chanel inspired ‘little black dress’ for your Parisian themed wedding. Better yet, let them each choose their own individual style and cut, and they will thank you for asking them to add this versatile piece to their wardrobe. Read more »
