A winter wedding is incomplete without a fabulous bouquet to remind your guests of the season and the many beauties of winter. Oh I know, there are just so many choices on the winter floral front…no, really I actually think there are..though most people don’t. First up… the iconic pine cone (third and fifth photos). If I’m being honest, I’ll admit.. not my personal favorite, but it’s fun for the winter especially if you’re going with a rustic theme. As for what I do like (love)… Deep red roses or any other pretty rich red flower are a must but mixing them with light pinks (first and sixth photos) or bringing in pale pink tones paired with light frosty blue-greys (forth photo) is perfect for a winter floral combo that stays true to the season and makes a beautiful statement for your winter celebration.
On the forth day of Christmas, a little inspiration in the form of the beautiful bouquet. If you aren’t sold on the Christmas colors or even decor, but want a little something seasonal on your big day… the bouquet is an elegant but muted way of making that Christmas statement. I love striking reds in a Christmas bouquet so obviously red is the overwhelming color scheme here but, that doesn’t mean you need only red. Combining your rich red color with other winter choices… greens, blues, even browns (first photo) can make for a unique and untypical Christmas bouquet. Or if you prefer the very Christmasy… add a few pine cones, cranberries, and holly to spice up the spirit (second, third, seventh photos) or finally, for a spin on the traditional, go with a deeper red floral palette… the maroons (forth and sixth photos). This way, you steer clear of those traditional reds but keep it wintry…. the perfect inspiration for our forth day of Christmas
On the 14th day of our Christmas countdown, may I suggest some fun and always Christmasy ideas for your wedding centerpiece! For a Christmas wedding, I wouldn’t expect anything less than a Christmas table complete with reds, greens, whites, golds and the occasional pine cone. Your centerpiece can be as big or small, as intricate or as simple as you like but making it reminiscent of Christmas is a must.
Now creating the perfect centerpiece for your wedding is best left in your own hands… so yes, I’m suggesting this be a little DIY project. Think of it like decorating your Christmas tree… it always comes out pretty right? Well… most do. So extend your craftiness (or lack thereof) to a very simple budget-friendly wedding project. Decorate a tiered stand with evergreen and different colored Christmas tree ornaments, then scatter around a few of those same ornaments and some evergreen extending out from the centerpiece (first and forth photos), or make your own vases with white candles surrounded by a bed of evergreen or on a tree stump…add a few sprigs of holly into the mix for some color (fifth and sixth photos) and two more DIY Christmas centerpiece ideas are born…
Happy Happy Thanksgiving! My personal favorite holiday rolls around once again, and this year I find myself planning some fabulous Thanksgiving weekend weddings! There is plenty to give thanks for if you’re planning a wedding, just married, or not quite there yet, so today we’re giving thanks for so much ourselves and hoping you enjoy our Thanksgiving wedding inspiration in the form of rustic decor, burlap invites and a boutonniere, lots of gold and fall flowers. Today, a visual Thanksgiving feast for your wedding planning eyes…
I, oddly enough, love patterns when it comes to home decor and fashion choices (sometimes – and this is a new trend for me) but still can’t exactly get myself excited about that on the wedding front. But I’m trying… and you may already be ahead of me here because while I’m not totally head over heels, I have to admit, fresh and modern patterns (in practically any color) can be fun for a wedding in any season.
I love the new and updated patterns that we see on the market now (think rugs, pillows, shirts, wallpaper) so I’m thinking there must be plenty of ways to translate these into your wedding day. While I wouldn’t go so far as to recommend, let’s say a tie or a dress, I think I’m getting comfortable with an invite or table setting… so here, a visual feast of fun, fresh, modern and clean pattern wedding ideas for a new spin on a traditional day.
