Toast in Color!

Gone are the days where we would head out and get our toasting flutes monogrammed with our names and dates. I always suggest to clients to get some pizzazz and dress up your wedding flutes too! Your toasting flutes do not need to be the exact  colors of your wedding, but it can just be your favorite color or even an accent color! The best part is that you will not have to wait until you until your anniversary to pop them out and use them!

These Waterford toasting flutes are a perfect way to add that pop of color!

Fab Finds: Personalized Photo Clutch

I am always scheming with my brides to determine their best gift for them to give their bridesmaids.  Often brides are thinking of giving frames with pictures of them with their bridesmaid, or a clutch filled with jewels for them to wear on the big day.  Why not take it a step further!  I love the idea of these personalized clutches complete with a picture of either you and the bridesmaid or just a picture of them so they can use the clutch after the wedding for a night on the town.  And for $18, I think this has the word SCORE written all over it!  Check it out now from seller AngeeW and leave us a comment as how you would make this the perfect bridesmaids! Oh and while you are at it, get one for you and your mom to have on the big day as well!

Wedding Trends: Hand Painted Paper Lanterns

I was so inspired by these hand painted lanterns Mindy Weiss, debuted at one of her events, I just knew I had to do a post.  We have seen lanterns at events over the last few years and this new innovative way to add this punch of color and pattern is just genius. 

You can completely carry your brand pattern throughout your event by adding a pattern, or just infuse two colors that you are using at the event to keep everything cohesive.  This can easy be a DIY project with stencil that can be fond at your local craft store.
