Posted by in Real Palettes

Sometimes the designs and formats we’ve created are just a guide.

That was the case when Heather came to us earlier this winter wanting to create invitations for her destination wedding in Mexico. We ended up taking our tile design, turning it into a booklet, and putting some custom touches on it along the way.

For an even more custom look, we created matching invitation and RSVP stamps.

I love her rich palette of red, brown and marigold on ivory paper. It’s also a great color combination for winter weddings, or to communicate warmth or a lavish wedding.

We’re really happy with how it turned out. What do you think?

{Real Palettes} Red, Purple and Gold Wedding Inspiration

Posted by in Real Palettes

Purple is a powerful, beautiful color for weddings. Depending what you pair it with it can be great for any season. And that’s what many of the couples we are working with are doing. Purple, lavender and silver; purple, lavender and gray (I hope to have photos of this last one soon!)

We have been seeing lots of red and gold for our Indian wedding stationery…but today I want to show you purple, red and gold. It’s a lush color combo. Thank you to Tanya and Colin for letting us work on their wedding invitation set.

There’s so much you can do with a purple, gold and red wedding. Here are just some ideas:

Purple Rhinestone Brooch Bridal Bouquet

Adding gold to any wedding color combo adds instant luxury. So play that up with elegant details: lace, silks, anything luxe. I love the fullness of this reception table design, it reads like old time elegance.

And for all you rockstar brides (you know who you are!), why stop at the details? Sure purple and red hair isn’t classic. But it looks a whole lot of fun, and paired with the right details can still be elegant.

{Ask Imbue You} How to Create Chic Theme Weddings

Posted by in Ask Imbue You, Create the Look, Design Secrets

Have you ever seen the television show My Fair Wedding, hosted by wedding expert David Tutera?

I really do love this show. But not for the “show up at your door 3 weeks before your wedding and change everything” premise. I love how David takes themes gone wild and transforms them into elegant affairs that the couple and guests will remember for years to come.

For me, this show is proof that any theme can be made elegant, sophisticated and personal.

Even a Day of the Dead wedding theme, based on the traditional Mexican holiday where people honor dead loved ones. The bride envisioned skulls everywhere, from the centerpieces to the groomsmen’s ties. David toned down the skulls, added red roses and black lace for a more Mexican feel…and voila elegance restored.

The keys to pulling this off are balance and variety. And if you keep these things in mind for your wedding, any theme you choose will be chic.

Let’s take a Vegas wedding theme for example. It’s tempting to think only about cards and dice. But look what happens when you mix in feathers (showgirls, anyone?), new interpretations of card suits, other textures and tons of glamour.

So go for it. Have that pirate theme wedding. Just be sure to mix in some bling with the bandanas.

What’s your wedding theme? And how are you keeping it chic?
