Destination Ireland

Is it really the weekend? {Finally}!!! What a long week it has been! Just in time for the weekend though is some destination love straight from Ireland. It was the cool and cloudy weather in NYC yesterday that was my inspiration for an Irish wedding so here it is… lots of grey undertones of course but also some beautiful scenery. Cheers!

Destination Mexico {Beach Style}

Heading south today for some of my favorite inspiration – destination style! Now I know we’ve done Mexico before, but this time it’s a little different. It’s all about the Mexican beach! This is what I envision as the true Mexico destination wedding: ceremony on the beach, mariachi band for the cocktail hour, sunset over the water, and reception on the cliffs. Destination {beach} Mexico here we come!

Destination Hamptons

While I’m spending my weekend down in Ocean City, Maryland for a fabulous bride-to-be’s bachelorette festivities, we’re figuratively heading to the Hamptons for wedding ideas destination style. The Hamptons are a summer staple for Long Island and NYC dwellers and it goes without saying that it is the perfect backdrop for a summer wedding by the beach. It’s convenient location from New York, charming villages (check out South and East Hampton for trendy boutiques and quaint side streets), beautiful beaches, and massive estates make it a prime wedding location. The beauty of the Hamptons wedding scene is that you can go a lot of different ways which is exactly why I wanted to blend a few today. Brides can choose to go vineyard, beachy or “New England town style” depending on your own vision. But whatever you go with, you can be assured that the Hamptons will not only be beautiful but welcoming for a perfect “destination” affair!

Destination Martha's Vineyard

With Memorial Day just around the corner, or the weekend, I think it’s only fitting to kick off summer in style – Martha’s Vineyard style. So just a little of this and that to pull together what would be my dream Martha’s Vineyard wedding. It’s complete with classic style (I love the wedding dress below), lots of blues, fitting welcome bags and an adorable invitation suite by Swiss Cottage Designs. Summer countdown officially begins now…

The {Natural} Mexico Wedding

Mexico is full of culture and tradition but it’s also filled incredible nature and so… today is our own inspiration pieced together from different (and beautiful) weddings to create our own vision for a natural Mexican destination wedding. I’m envisioning a central theme of greenery here along with a strong Mexican influence. I love the idea of a drink favor (third photo), and an outdoor reception (forth photo), invitations that appeal to our “earthy side” (seventh photo) and natural or not, a destination wedding in Mexico always requires a mariachi band! Today, it’s all about using your imagination to create the overall theme for your wedding whether it’s Mexico or anywhere else – destination or in your backyard. Emphasize the details of the natural beauty of the space.. and you can’t exactly go wrong
