~Inspired Fridays!~ Pinks and Pearls!

Today we are in a romantic mood!  Our favourite mood to be in!  

All the soft hues of pink, pearls and classic images we are seeing has inspired us to create this board which we hope ... inspires you!!

There is so much visual inspiration out there that it can be easy to get "lost" and overwhelmed.  

Take all the images in and maybe a "romantic spark" will get the wedding planning in motion!  Our personal favourite of the images below.... the beautiful cake dripping with pearls!

~ Happy Planning Ladies! ~


Style Me Pretty


Now ladies.  We can't forget during all this wedding planning that we have to think about the groom!  As much as it's said that this day is all about the bride, really it is about the both of you!  This is the beginning of your journey together, really a test of sorts to see how you both can handle the trials and tribulations of planning-a-wedding!

Here are some elements of the wedding that are specific to the groom that he can be involved in deciding (among other things... ) because really he is the one that is going to be wearing it!  Have a look and maybe you'll find a middle ground with your husband-to-be with regards to all things PINK!  



Boutonnieres, which are mini-corsages worn on the jacket lapel, often incorporate or compliment the flowers used in the bouquet of the bride.  It all depends on the statement you want to make....what shade of pink is chosen.  They can range from the palest pinks to the brightest fuschias.   This first boutonniere would fit right in to an outdoor, nature themed wedding celebration.  We also think that some grooms may not mind this shade of pink as much since it's not too "light"!  


Now on the other hand you can choose a very pale pink to play into the romantic theme you may have chosen for your wedding.  This second boutonniere accomplishes this very well.

 Now for those of you ladies who have a group of boys that are the life of the party and really love to have fun... this idea may be up your alley!  Matching socks!  Give them a chance to show off their "fun" side!  We LOVE this idea!!

Another accessory that leaves room for some creativity is the necktie!  You can go patterned, solid, whimsical or even very serious.  Whatever you choose gentlemen, just make sure that it represents you and you feel good wearing it!  So important!!

Now you can really have fun and choose the next option!  This will totally speak to your personality gentlemen!

One last thing that I wanted to showcase was the "subtle" accessory - the cufflink.  

You can really go wild and unique with this item depending on your personalities!!!  Here are some of my faves!  


Remember brides & grooms - make this "your" day and let it show through the details!!!

~ Happy Planning! ~



Here we are again with some more "PINK" inspiration! 

Today I wanted to showcase one of my favourite accessories - PURSES!  It is so true that the little "details" that are incorporated into your wedding day really do set the tone for your celebration.  The littlest thing could say whimsical & fun or totally traditional.  

Knowing what statement you would like to make on your day will guide your decisions.... right down to the last detail!

Ladies - I know you will love what we have on the blog today.  

~ Enjoy!! ~

This one is fun!

 Another cute one!


Here's a classic one.... with just enough bling!

I'm partial to this next one... not too much pink but enough to give a statement!

Very romantic!


Be inspired ladies!
