It’s spring again, and as the flowers start to bloom, so will the season for wedded bliss. As you look forward to what will be one of the happiest days of your life, here is some inspiration for you as you prepare for your fantasy come true.
Invitations – The first glance that your guests see of your wedding style is of your invitations. Order your invitations at least 4 – 6 months before the wedding. Individualize your invitations with a luxe look. Luxurious Wedding Invitations offer lovely couture invitations to wow your guest list. A bride-to-be can memorialize a loved one, represent and include her blended family, or pet by having a custom cameo brooch added to their wedding invitations. The style is luxe. The sentiment is priceless!
Bridal Shower Favors – Wrapped Kreations offer a unique way to personalize your bridal shower, or any special event. These favors are custom made with your flavor, and are a treasure for your special moment.
Bouquets – Feathers add a couture touch to any bouquet. A monochromatic bouquet in a bright and intense shade of your favorite color adds drama and intensity for the glam bride, or in all white for the traditional bride. A Hand-tied bouquet of calla lilies, or one long stem of an orchid are an elegant way to express your signature style on your wedding day. Colorful bouquets are a sheer elegant way for a bride-to-be with a blended family, or for any bride wanting to honor a lost loved one, to incorporate birth month colors of that family member(s). With a monochromatic bouquet, you may consider using rhinestones or swarovski crystals placed on your flower petals, or decorating the stem of your hand-tied bouquet, in each birthstone color to welcome and include new family ties or old memories, while adding sparkle. The style is unique. The sentiment is unforgettable!
Tablescapes – For the frugal, but chic, a wonderful way to dress the tables at your reception site is to place varying sizes of all white pillar candles in the center of the table. Alternatively, the use of empty or water filled box or cylinder shaped vases simply topped with a beautiful floral arrangement surrounded by tea light candles on top of mirrored coasters adds sophistication to the ambience. For the fabulous, elevated, or hanging (from the ceiling) floral or manzanita branch arrangements with or without feathers dripping with crystals or pearls definitely add flair and fabulousness. For the dramatic and couture look, some tables for rent are made to allow for a tablescape of varying candles, flowers, manzanita branches, and even small fire pits containing treated glass to strategically be placed and safely secured inside the center of the table for a dramatic and couture look.
Custom Desserts and Signature Drinks – For a custom touch, ask your caterer or bar matron if they’d allow you to work with them to make up your own ice cream, gelato or signature drink. Do this by combining individual favorite flavors of the wedding couple. Try three different choices, and select the one you both love the best. Or have them made in your wedding colors. Have them name it after you.
Wishing you LIFE and LOVE,
