The Wedding Palette – Peaches and Plums

Happy Monday! Well it’s been a dismally cold weekend here in NYC so I needed a little something springy to cheer me up and start thinking about summery wedding and happy pretty things! So peaches and plums it is. My own take on inspiration for this fruity palette today using the.. yep, you guessed it, actual fruit as my guide. And from there just a little of this (plum garter?) and a little of that (a peach wedding dress or purple bridesmaids dresses?) all of which make today’s palette cheery, fun and very springy!

Destination Santorini

Well, the end is near… actually here for two weeks of destination wedding bliss. But we’re ending on a high note, with the fabulously incredible Santorini, Greece. As if the last two weeks wasn’t enough, I kind of feel like today we’re outdoing it all with such an incredible destination wedding location. The palette is obvious.. lots of whites and blues to blend with the scenery, but here, the backdrop does the rest. Whether your dress is lacy or puffy, your theme is romantic or modern it can work. The key is the destination here… and Santorini is the perfect choice for our last day of destination weddings (for now…)

Destination Bali

Back to Southeast Asia we go today.. because I can’t get enough of it these days. When you’re doing destination, at least do it in style. So why Bali? Well for one, I’m still thinking of it from “Eat, Pray, Love”, and if you can fall in love there (and your readers/viewers are still thinking of it after, what, 2 years now), that’s good enough for me.

The color palette for my Bali {dream} wedding is pale pink and a pretty succulent green – that leafy, beautiful green. I can’t really get over how “cool” the pink lotus flowers before bloom are for a wedding bouquet (first photo), or how wildly fun an outdoor reception into the night is (forth photo). But everything about this destination wedding is perfect from the ceremony to the dress, the scenery and those place cards (third photo) making it pretty obvious that this destination wedding location is one for the books…

Dress of the Week – Wanda Borges

It’s official. The no-lace streak is over and I can’t say I’m sad about it. How could I be with such a lovely pick by Brazilian designer Wanda Borges. I have to say this week was hard, there were just too many beautiful dresses to choose from (check out her website for more!) But this gown was the standout in the crowd, for me at least.. mainly because of the lace torso and up, completed with the elegant capped sleeves. And then there’s that tulle a-line skirt. You’d think the lace was enough for me (it always is), but today there is an extra treat… that tulle a-line skirt. And there you have it… add this to the list of favorites here on OTW!

Happy Wednesday!

Destination Old San Juan, Puerto Rico

To Old San Juan we go… we’re into week 2 of our own list of top wedding destinations and back to the Americas today with the lovely, old world town of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Here I’m thinking of a very classy, glamorous affair amidst the beaches and jungles of Puerto Rico. There is a perfect little town full of all the elegance and glam that you could imagine just waiting for your old car, pretty hairpiece, classy clutch and all that jazz to go along with your destination Old San Juan wedding style…

Happy Tuesday lovelies!!
