Bibliophile: Book Theme Wedding Ideas

Posted by in Create the Look

A book theme wedding can be a sweet and personal way to share something you love with your family and friends. It’s also just a fun, unique theme for a wedding!

{Designer Secret} There are so many ways you can go with a book theme wedding. To keep your wedding theme looking pulled together, don’t try to incorporate too many ideas. Focus on what you love, such as favorites titles or your favorite things about books. Or concentrate on two to three larger statements, like your centerpieces or escort cards, and add smaller book related details here and there, such as napkin rings or exit confetti.

I love the flowers as bookends to this book wedding centerpiece. So clever and so beautiful! To tie in with her centerpieces, one of our brides had us create this bookmark giveaway card to be hidden in one napkin at each reception table.  The person with the napkin wins the centerpiece book.

Modern Snow: Winter Wedding Inspiration

Posted by in Create the Look

I’m really getting excited by winter weddings now. But talk to me in three months, and I’ll be excited by spring weddings. I guess I just love wedding details!

{Designer Secret} If you want a sleek, modern winter wedding look with a nod to the season, you can skip snowflake icons. Instead try using white on white color and texture. (But there’s nothing wrong with snowflakes. Our logo is a modernized snowflake!)

These are my favorite looks for snowy texture, without the snow. Feathers, faux fur, geometrics, pearls and crystals. There are many modern and elegant ways to evoke winter for your wedding.

{Re Post} Orange and Teal Mexican Wedding Inspiration

Posted by in Create the Look

As fall quickly approaches, I wanted to revisit one of my favorite wedding color combinations from this summer: orange and teal.

There are so many beautiful destination weddings in Mexico. And as much as I love the bold palette of red and black for a Mexican wedding, those colors aren’t for everyone! Looking to go softer and brighter, but still play with a traditional Mexican color palette? How about orange and teal?

Wouldn’t these papel picado banners look beautiful in your reception space…or overhead at an outdoor wedding? {Handmade by}

{Designer Secret} Bold and bright colors can be kept airy and light by adding white and see through fabrics. And of course everything doesn’t have to scream “Mexico”.  But touches here and there, like the embroidery on this wedding dress are really lovely.

A little fun and whimsy works too! Though, as I wrote last week, you don’t want to overdo it on the Mexican Day of the Dead skulls.

{Create the Look} Fall Wedding Wheat Inspiration

Posted by in Create the Look

rustic wheat wedding bouquet

I love the rich colors of fall, especially as the leaves change color. And I have been creating our handmade leaf wedding invitation for many couples during the last few weeks.

So this week I wanted to offer another look at fall: wheat. There’s something breezy and comfortable about wheat, perfect for small, intimate weddings with your closest family and friends.

{Designer Secret} Liven up the golden wheat palette with a jolt of color. Red, teal or purple would be lovely options.

{Create the Look} Love is Sweet: Pink and Blue Candy Wedding Theme

Posted by in Create the Look

After the quiet sophistication of last week’s 40s vintage chic inspiration, I wanted bright, vivid and bold. The result is a candy inspired wedding theme: Love is Sweet.

{Designer Secret} Beyond a gorgeous dessert bar, what makes this theme work is a combination of candy colors, shiny texture, slightly vintage mood and lots of fun.

Above: What’s a cute wedding theme without cute messages. Be personal, cute and fun with your signs, favor tags and even invitations if you like. It’s candy! Shauna Younge Dessert Tables via Austin Wedding Blog.

Yes, you can wear your sweet candy theme, with colors, textures and attitude. To keep it chic limit yourself to two candy-inspired elements for your accessories or just one if it’s a bold choice like your dress or a statement  necklace.

As with any theme wedding, the theme is all in the details. For a candy theme wedding, it’s in the details and the dessert…and even better when the details are the dessert, like the lollipop table numbers above from Vintage Confections.

A wedding’s mood can be in shown your colors. For a more chic look at a candy theme, or for a more formal evening affair go darker or grayer with your colors.  {photo: Shauna Younge Dessert Tables}

{Create the Look} 40s Vintage Sophisticate

Posted by in Create the Look

vintage wedding bridal hair

What do you do when you love vintage style but not necessarily the muted colors and lace details that often define a vintage wedding? May I present: 40s Vintage Sophisticate or Vintage Chic.

Think bold rich colors, simple use of color and exquisite detailing from fine tailored clothing. Influenced by one of my favorite eras for style, this look works great for city weddings and couples with a clean and modern taste.
