Here Come the Brides – Same-Sex Style

Every bride wants to shine on her wedding day. However, it can be a little more difficult to stand out when you’re sharing the spotlight with another blushing bride. So how do you ensure that you and your wife-to-be don’t steal each others thunder? The best way is to coordinate! Now, I am by no means suggesting you purchase matching dresses. No one wants a “who wore it best?” moment on their big day. But, it is possible to show your individual styles while still looking cohesive. Take a look at the stunning couples below for inspiration.

Not every bride dreams of wearing a big white dress on her wedding day. Both of these brides chose to sidestep tradition while still keeping it classic. By choosing to incorporate cream and metallic elements into their attire, they look like they were made for each other.

These beauties chose to go with a more bohemian look on their big day. Even though the actual cut of the dresses are different, both are soft and romantic with a slight vintage feel.

Designing on the Edge – Edge Painting

Create your own masterpiece!

Looking to add a little extra pizzazz to your wedding or event invitation? Edge painting is the perfect way to add a pop of color and whole lot of interest to your wedding invitation card. It’s the small details that often make the whole look come together, and edge painting is sure to be a look you’ll love.

Edge painting can be done on our standard one-ply letterpress paper stock, however, two ply is the best option. The thicker and sturdier paper allows the color of your edge paint to stand out and makes for a larger impact.

This customization allows you to add a new layer of dimension to your invite. You can choose to use color or a metallic paint depending on your desired overall look.

Fall 2015 – Pantone Color Report: Cashmere Rose

The parade of Pantone is sadly coming to an end this week with the reveal of Cashmere Rose. This dusky shade of pink is both soft and romantic. Its mauve undertone gives it an air of sophistication that would be perfect for your fall wedding. As with its predecessor Cadmium Orange, this color is stunning when mixed with like colors for a stunning monochromatic look. For a more rustic feel, you can pair it with touches of lavender, cream, and hunter green.

“A play on the ’60s with a twist of today, Cashmere Rose is a tactile and soft pink hue that renders exactly what it promises. Cultivated in its richness, Cashmere Rose is a gentle and composed pink that is more upscale than downtown.” – Pantone Fall 2015 Color Report

Digital Table Markers

Table markers are always a great item to consider, whether you’re toying with the idea of a seating chart or not. The purpose of these markers goes beyond who goes where. Yes, it may be important to ensure that Aunt Sally sits at table nine because Uncle Sal and his new wife will be at table five, but the numbers also have another function; service.

The size and formality of your wedding or event can vary greatly. You may be hosting a casual buffet dinner for a few dozen of your closest friends and family or a sit-down, four-course dinner for 400. The longer your guest list, and the more formal your reception, the more necessary the need for table markers becomes. A big reason is so your servers can keep track of who has the chicken and who has the fish. The more clearly you mark your tables, the faster and more efficient the service, and the less likely your guests will suffer from a case of cold salmon.

Feel free to get creative with your table numbers. Interested in tented? How about flat and framed? Better yet, order your markers as labels and adhere them to wine bottles for a more delicious alternative. You can also steer clear of numbers all together by name your tables instead. Are you and your hubby-to-be world travelers? Than name your tables after places you’ve traveled and avoid your sorority sister asking why she is stuck at table fifteen while your long lost cousin is at table three.

Fall 2015 – Pantone Color Report: Cadmium Orange

Wedding season has reached full-bore and for those of you still looking to add a vibrant hue to your wedding day color palette, search no further. This week’s Fall 2015 Pantone pick is Cadmium Orange, a soft but spirited shade of orange that is sure to make a statement on your big day. Although this radiant color plays well with others, I prefer to let it stand alone. By mixing in other shades of orange for your monochromatic affair or pairing it with a soft gray, this color is truly striking.

A nod to the ’60s and ’70s, Cadmium Orange evokes a sentiment of optimism, fun and fantasy. Both playful and sophisticated in its appeal, Cadmium Orange is a warm, welcoming and subtly dramatic orange shade that is striking enough to stand on its own or act as a bold contrast. – Pantone Fall 2015 Color Report

Fall 2015 – Pantone Color Report: Reflective Pond

We are nearing the end of our Fall 2015 Pantone features, and with only three colors remaining, we’d like to introduce you to Reflective Pond. This take on the classic navy is elegant and timeless. With this dark blue shade quickly becoming the new neutral, it’s a great option to include in your wedding day color scheme. Pair it with a bright pink or soft peach for spring, vibrant yellow or green for summer, or a burnt orange or deep purple for fall. This is also the perfect color to stand alongside a crisp white for your nautical or destination wedding.

“Thoughtful, contemplative and composed, Reflecting Pond is a cooling blue with a lot of depth. Conveying a message of credibility, Reflecting Pond is a serious shade that speaks to our need for stability and security.” – Pantone Fall 2015 Color Report
