"Spring Into Planning!"

As exciting as it is to have the beautiful weather finally making an appearance, it is even MORE exciting to get into the mood of planning your special day!

Amongst all of the other important things that need to be decided between you and your beloved, choosing colour themes are a great way to start! If you have a Spring wedding planned or have a few weddings to attend in the upcoming months, you can be sure that these are the colours you will be seeing for Spring 2014!

Pastels like pale peach, radiant orchid and cherry blossom pink seem to be a trend we are seeing this Spring because of their light and fresh feel…who said only the weather had to be bright and blossoming?!

      

These beautiful colours not only mirror the beautiful outdoors in its process of blooming but it also helps us get back into the mood of designing your exceptional day!

When you are choosing between these lovely Spring colours, step out of your comfort zone and try pairing them with charming soft shimmers of silver or gold! The twinkling aspect of these metallic colours will not only add a variety of colour to balance out the theme but it will also help the focus colour POP!

But remember everyone….... moderation is KEY! Too much of one colour can overthrow the theme and make things feel too overwhelming!  Make sure to ask for help if you are unsure about how much colour or sparkle to add to your stunning setting so you can ensure that your day is as perfect as you have always imagined!


Above all, have fun with it!  These colours should reflect your dream day and make you feel just as happy as we are about this beautiful Spring weather letting love be in the air!

Until next time!

Seeing Shades of Pink!

When you first think of "pink" you may picture a shade something along the lines of Hubba Bubba bubble gum.... at least that is what comes to mind for me!  

Well that's not all that this wonderful colour is all about!!!  

In the world of wedded bliss, the gloves come off and we can see that there is so much more to PINK than simply Hubba Bubba Bubble gum!

Rings

Why not start where it all begins...  the *sparkle*!  Whether it's a solid pink stone or just an accent, the shade gives your ring a certain unique touch that sets it apart from the traditional engagement ring.  Gentlemen you've got quite the task ahead of you!  There's so much to choose from.  You better know your lady well :)

Flowers

Now that we have the bling taken care of... let's talk about something we love.  The loveliness that is flowers!  Whether they be the romantic type or have that wow factor, they are a statement that is made starting right at the ceremony.  A favourite these days are the peony (*sigh* ... so romantic!).  Lush and beautiful it is perfect for that romantic celebration that will just take everyone's breath away.... such a feel-good choice for your florals!

Now if you've chosen pink as part of your colour palette, it does not mean you have to saturate your whole day with it.  You can have it incorporated as a subtle detail with different textures.  For example your bouquets... a hint of pink will be enough to create the feeling you are hoping to achieve.  Such lovely combinations are shown below... don't rule anything out :)

Inspiration Fridays ~ White on White Weddings!

Does the thought of a white wedding make you cringe and think clinical and boring? I am all about colour and was skeptical at first but after looking at some inspirational boards I thought this is ‘all white!’ (Sorry couldn’t resist)

The truth is, done in the right way; a white themed wedding can be gorgeous.  Get the lighting, tones and textures spot-on and you can and will create a fairy tale like ambience.  I don’t think it should be 100% white as you will get odd hint of colour from your venue furniture and décor, so choose a location where it will all tie in together nicely.

This wedding board below screams out sophistication & elegance as well as encapsulating high fashion.  The hint of green is a nice way to break up the monotone white palette.

A combination of different whites and creams adds warmth especially when it is enhanced with good mood lighting.  A chandelier not only adds a great crystal white but reflects opulence and grandeur.

Many brides are also opting to share their white gown moment by also dressing their bridesmaids in white.  Don’t forget the small and big details from candle holders to doves, to the "getaway car" ....anything can be white!

Go for the "glitz & glam" look by adding some sparkles and really make that white wedding shine!

The Lit Chick blog delves into the world of white and below is a sample of some of the many shades available.  

Who knew?!



Will it be an all-white wedding for you?

We've peaked your interest haven't we!

~ Inspiration Fridays ~ Refreshingly Minty!

We are loving that mint soared through the spring summer season of 2012 and is still making a statement in wedding trends for 2013 as the hottest colour.  This top colour is fresh, chic and retro with the ability to blend with an ascent colour to create that gorgeous palette for your wedding.

It can be incorporated in everything from invitations, bridesmaid dresses, décor, cakes, flowers, jewellery and much more. Envision your perfect combination of mint elements with help from these inspiration boards below. 

The mint colour just comes across so cool, bright, light and airy yet with a certain warmth! It is just one of those feel good colours that adds joy and bounce, just what you want from wedding. 

It is so versatile that it can be interpreted in a modern or vintage way. See the comparison between the board above and below but both are stylishly elegant. 

We love the idea of mint choc chip ice cream, ideal for a summer wedding. Looks great and tastes even better! That goes for the cakes and macaroons too. Our mouths are watering already!

We hope this has inspired you to go green!
