Choosing Wedding Colors: A Daunting Task???

Posted in Uncategorized

One of the things that some brides first stress over is coming up with a color design concept for their wedding. With so many colors in the color spectrum, how can one possibly choose?

Getting across the “picking a wedding color” milestone doesn’t have to be stressful, it just takes some patience along with some creativity to tap into the inner crayola in all of us! Here are some tips:

  • Draw inspiration from your wedding venue. Sometimes the venue where you’re having your wedding at may have themes and colors already in place that you may want to play up or compliment. A venue with a tuscany feel may inspire you to use yellow sunflowers and nuetral colors, while a destination wedding on the beach may inspire sea blue, fushia, or shades that you see in a sunset.
  • Draw inspiration from the season. Although we’re not a stickler to this rule, it can be helpful. Winter weddings may inspire some people to use icy shades of blue and white or deep shades of red complimented with gold or silver. A fall wedding may inspire shades of brown, orange, or auburn red.
  • Draw inspiration from hobbies and interests as a couple. This is always a great place to start. One of the weddings that we’re doing next year, our couple are huge METS fans so it was no surprise that their wedding colors are blue and orange {more on this a little later}.
  • Draw inspiration from other brides. Let’s face it, other weddings inspire people! Three websites that are useful are Style Me Pretty, Bridal Canvas, and Wedding By Color.

Color certainly doesn’t have to be intimidating, just keep in mind what seems authentic to your wedding and the overall feel you want to convey. If you’re not familiar with the name of a certain shade of color, go to Wikipedia and type in the name of the primary color you’re looking for and it will give you a spectrum of that specific color.

On a final note, don’t be afraid to mix colors. You’d be surprised of the various great color combinations. Our blue and orange wedding is turning out so classy that I sometimes forget it’s METS themed. And just as much as you shouldn’t be afraid to mix color, you also don’t have to be afraid of sticking to one color. One of our other brides is simply using two shades of pink and that is turning out equally as lovely. Good luck and happy color picking!

Venue Spotlight – City Grill Atlanta

Posted in Uncategorized

This past summer one of my clients venues burned down. Not something anyone would like to deal with six months before their wedding day. However this tragedy has lead this couple to book an amazing venue. They were able to secure City Grill Atlanta, all to themselves for their big day. The space is equipped with a grand staircase and wonderful chandeliers throughout the space. Yesterday I had the opportunity to meet my client as well as Carla Duncan from On Occasions of Atlanta, to walk through the space in preparation for the upcoming nuptials. I have worked with Carla in the past and each time she never ceases to amaze me with new ideas with her event and floral design. I wish I had my camera to show you the true beauty of the space but for now the pictures on their site will have to do.

This room will be transformed to a warm and cozy bridal suite.

The couple will have their nuptials on the beautiful staircase pictured below.

Right after the nuptials the guest will enjoy their cocktail hour here.
Dinner will be set for their guests throughout the dinning room.

Although it may be to late to order one for this years holiday, these albums make great gifts for parents or just a keepsake for the bride and groom. With more photographers doing “shooting only”, these albums are a great way to capture those memories.

Posted in Uncategorized

You might remember when I told you a little while back that I had won a night at the Four Seasons here in Atlanta courtesy of the Atlantan Brides magazine. Well my friends, tonight is the night that I will enjoy my stay at this fabulous hotel. This will be the first night in many months that I will not touch my computer or blackberry and enjoy a peaceful night with my husband. In honor of spending a night in this amazing hotel, I had to share pics from previous weddings that have taken place at this venue:

Normally we often see in wedding pictures a bride with her brides tank or custom undies and robes, grooms can join the fun as well. A great gift and keepsake for your groom is personlized boxers. You can imprint boxers with anything, your nickname that you have for him, your wedding date, even your monogram.

Below you will find online resources that sell various options at a great price point. Or you can take his favorite brand of boxers to your local embrodiery shop to further customize your gift.
