Summer Color Scheme: Blue + White

Posted by Caitlin on Aug 07, 2013

Our third favorite summer color scheme — blue and white! This inspiration board is fit for a modern bride who wants to incorporate art deco patterns into her stationery thanks to her sapphire emerald cut engagement ring. Who says you can’t be the only one wearing white? Since you’ll be wearing a Grecian goddess wedding dress, keep it casual and ask your bridesmaids to wear long chiffon dresses with strappy gladiator sandals. Choose a bouquet filled with peonies, dusty miller, and silver brunia balls and a blue tie along with a matching boutonniere for your groom’s attire and lapel, respectively. Don’t forget to pick a monogrammed cake that is almost too pretty to eat. Almost!

Are You Writing Your Own Vows?

Posted by Caitlin on Jul 24, 2013

Since you’re personalizing your summer wedding ceremony with aisle markers, arches or altar arrangements, and programs, why not consider writing your own vows too. First things first, decide if you want to recite separate or identical lines full of love, promises and memories (or inside jokes). Be specific! Your words may be different, but the tone should be the same. It’s about making a pact — an agreement that will last “until death do us part” — approximately one to three minutes long for your guests’ sake. Remember, practice beforehand in a natural, low key voice to keep you calm, and during the exchange, it’s okay to shed a tear or two.
