Crazy For Stripes

Back to the old school patterns today lovelies.. stripes, stripes, and more stripes. With the dullness of winter in full swing I needed a little pick me up to get me into the weekend, so I figure you might too. Is it really only Thursday?? So here’s to hoping some summery/happy/bright strips can get us past today and tomorrow! I actually love stripes, especially this year. It feels like I’m not the only one out there either… haven’t you read that this (well, patterns in general) is predicted to be one of the wedding trends this year? Yep, I’m sure you already knew all about it! Hope you are loving these fabulous stripey ideas (bow ties, table runners, invites, dresses and even some pretty straws) as much as I do in the middle of January…!

A Winter Something Blue

As you may know, I have a small obsession with all the something blues floating around the wedding planning world so I couldn’t help myself from devoting a full post to a something blue winter edition. While I love the blue wedding palette, this is not it. Today is just for those little something blues that you may not have thought to incorporate in your winter wedding. Each one is fun and maybe even a little unique, but all are perfect for your winter wedding. We’ve picked a blue photo prop (yes, it’s a blue velour chair – goes perfectly with a snowy landscape), blue bridesmaids dresses, blue macarons, blue mittens, a blue tie for your groom, a blue floral headpiece, a blue cake decoration, and that little something blue in your wedding bouquet…

An Ode to Texture

Recently, I’ve found myself mildly obsessed with shoes. Call it a new phase in the new year but I can’t get shoes out of my mind…on the subway, in fancy storefronts, you name the place, and I bet there is an amazing shoe on some lucky girls foot. I’m just talking day to day here but when it comes to weddings, the shoe scene becomes that much more intense. I’ve been thinking of ways to make your wedding shoe stand out and while I can never get enough of sparkles, different textures like beading, crystals, and maybe even some mirrored snakeskin can become the perfect wedding shoe… a few favorites below thanks to Christian Louboutin, Stuart Weitzman, Benjamin Adams, Sergio Rossi, Miu Miu, and Jimmy Choo!

Happy Monday!

Sparkle into the New Year

Happy 2013 lovely One to Wed readers! Yesterday I couldn’t believe 2012 was ending; today I can’t believe 2013 is beginning! To start the new year off right, and in New Year’s tradition, today is all about the sparkle, glitter and overall dazzle. Time to accessorize for your New Years’s wedding with all things shiny and made of sequins…

On the must-have New Year’s wedding list? The likes of silver glitter bridesmaids dresses, sequin decor – I love the idea of a sparkly table setting, glitter confetti, an embellished wedding gown (a favorite by Monique Lhuillier below), a sequin clutch (a fun choice also below by Betsey Johnson), and of course sparkly pumps for dancing the New Year away…

Christmas Countdown: The Red Details

It’s the 16th day of Christmas wedding ideas and since we chose green for our first Christmas countdown idea, we had to do a little ode to red too… but not quite the full palette, today just the details! Because we realize maybe not everyone who gets married in December wants a red wedding palette, or even likes the color red for that matter, we wanted to highlight how you can incorporate one or two things to make yourself and your guests feel Christmasy and in the holiday spirit without going red overboard.

So our details today include fashion touches like red nails (first photo), ruby drop earrings (second photo), you choose your favorite style of Christian Louboutin’s…it’s the red on the bottom that counts (forth photo), or if you prefer, red heels (eighth photo). If you don’t want to go the red fashion route, on the food front we’ve got red chocolate lollipop favors (third photo), eggnog hot chocolate with a candy cane stirrer (sixth photo), or mini cakes for dessert lined with cranberries (ninth photo). Finally, if you’re looking for something maybe not for the big day, choose a red paper product like these fab invites (last photo).

15 days to go…
