Ideas for a swanky bridal shower

Posted in Uncategorized

Bridesmaids often call me for suggestions on their upcoming shower they are hosting. One consistent question is – “What can we do to make this shower unique?”, and the answer is simple, think outside of the box! Think back to times when you were a child and just couldn’t wait for your friends to come over and play dress up. Over at Hostess with the Mostess, they featured this swanky tropical zen theme. Guaranteed to show the bride to be how much effort was put into planning her shower.

Vendor Spotlight – Laurel Speaks

Posted in Uncategorized


Today at My Couture Wedding the vendor spotlight shines on Laurel Speak Designs. Laurel is a recent bride that has taken her passions to a new level by offering other brides details to enhance their magical day. What we found very interesting in Laurel’s product line is her Gobbo Designs. Gobbo designs have been all the rave in the past two years as brides wanted to take their use of their monograms to the next level. We had time to touch base with Laurel today to see what is going on in the gobbo world:

MCW: What is a Gobbo?
LS: A gobo is a light that uses a carved plate to project an image onto something. In most cases a wall, or floor.

MCW: What inspired you to add the gobbo line to your designing business?
LS: I had seen a lot of girls asking about gobos and where they could get one so I figured why not? It will help me out and them!

MCW: Once a plate is ordered from you, what else does the couple need in order to project the design?
LS: In order to project the gobo you need a light/projector. Essentially any light that has a slot for the thin metal plate to hold will work. You need to keep in mind how you want it mounted though. If it will be projected on the floor, it needs to be mounted up high..

MCW: What is a common mistake brides often make when purchasing a gobbo order?
LS: The design is too intricate. A gobo works using the design as a negative image, a lot of times monograms that people want used have alot of overlapping. On paper you can use color and shading to differentiate the different designs, a gobo can’t do that unless you overlap multiple gobos using multiple projectors.

MCW: Where do you see the future of gobbo’s heading? LS: Going up! It is already pretty popular and with so many people hiring lighting designers for weddings, I think the sky is the limit!

MCW: What is the price range of gobbo’s?
LS: For me the first gobo is $95 plus shipping, if you want multiple copies it is an additional $45 each.
