Real Palettes: Teal, Fuchsia and Gold Indian Wedding

Posted by in Color Advice, Create the Look, Our Designs, Real Palettes

Sometimes it takes experimentation to land on the color palette you like.

We were working on a wedding program for an Indian wedding that originally had royal blue and gold as the main colors. A two color palette works well on invitation design. But often once the reception design begins, more colors are pulled in with flowers, table linens, chair coverings and even tableware.

So the bride came back and added teal and fuchsia to the mix and it really brought the entire design alive.

I love the results, what about you? What colors would you add to your palette to fill it out?

Beach Wedding Theme Inspiration: Seahorses

Posted by in Create the Look

If you are looking for a more unusual theme for a beach wedding, consider seahorses. There’s something really sweet and charming about seahorses compared to the more popular beach theme icons starfish and sand dollars. They are also especially cute for theme bridal and baby showers.

It is commonly said that seahorses mate for life. And while that isn’t actually always true, the kissing seahorse is still a lovely image. {photo credit above by Beach House Living}

Here is some wedding inspiration for a seahorse theme:

Seahorse Cake Toppers

Cake design can match your personality and the mood of your wedding, so seahorse toppers can go DIY or elegant and still work. The knit seahorse toppers were hand made by the bride.

It’s not necessary for everyone in the wedding party to wear your theme, but little touches here and there, from cuff links to jewelry, can bring a seahorse theme to life.

It’s a nice touch to give your guests a reminder of your theme to take home with them. That can be done simply with a seahorse themed favor tag or more elaborately with a seahorse container or cookie favor.
