Spring 2015-Pantone Color Report: Marsala

A grounding color for a spring celebration full of romance and mystery.

Pantone is at it again! The color moguls from the fast and furious East Coast are back with more incredible color palettes to woo us into a fashion frenzy. We are swooning over the gorgeous 2015 colors that were released only days ago. These incredible hues, which are incredible both on their own and combined together, will be perfect inspiration for your upcoming big day.

Marsala is a deep and dusty color that suggests the reddish brown clay of the Southwest or the deep wines of California’s vineyards. The shade is robust and hearty, with an undertone of complex color combinations that lets Marsala play well in any visual theme. Elegant with a little bit of sass, this is a color you’ll want to get to know.

Grooms don this color with ease. The handsome hues on these gentlemen show that anyone can enjoy Marsala in a tie, boutonniere, suit, or bow tie. The groom’s braces even look good, who knew you could get suspenders in that color?! Try mixing it up with a pattern on a sleek color to boot, like a deep Malibu blue.

If you are looking to marry this modern color with a traditional look, try our Cathryn design. This letterpress invitation has it all, from a wreath of flowers to a gorgeous monogram. The delicate details of floral leaves and the script that gives the motif a formal air is perfect for your wedding.

How will you wear Marsala? A deep red dress pops in the forest and a draped sari paired with gold truly grabs your attention. Try an ombre wash into white or a throw to keep you warm in the chilly beginnings of spring. Match your wedding colors with your beau’s pocket handkerchief or the softer tones of his dress shirt.

Is your wedding a traditional Indian affair? The peacock motif is perfect, with paisley intermingling with hand drawn details of winding feather details. Perhaps your fusion wedding is taking place at a national zoo or an animal sanctuary. You wildlife lovers can’t go wrong with Jessica, either.

The bridal bouquet is the most essential detail to match to your wedding color scheme. Pick out a beautiful bouquet of flowers to proudly carry down the aisle. Every season of the year yeilds blooms for a Marsala wedding. If you’re feeling adventurous, match your hair and nails to the bouquet. It will make your bridal look complete!

Are you traveling for a destination wedding? Perhaps you’re enjoying a staycation and want to dress up the house for a homebound affair. Anne is a beautiful suite for your lofty desires, no matter which country or state you end up in. The calligraphy of Anne’s design is pretty against the block lettering of the wedding details. Get playful with you nuptials and explore the options of this letterpress invitation.

The wedding guests will be in awe over your reception’s tablescapes. Don’t forget that your eye for detail will get to shine here around the place settings for your big banquet. Choose floral accents in Marsala or perhaps play with the dishware to make the little decisions seem big! Not only will it be fun for you, but your guests will go gaga over these clever looks.

Our exotic wedding invitation Passion lovingly displays the flower of the same name. This gorgeous motif showcases the anatomy of this incredibly wild flower and you can’t help but love the romantic look of the curling vines and the dreamy flower petals. Did you know that you can find these flowers in the Florida Keys, Africa, and even the Andes Mountains! A flower for all kinds of climates and all kinds of love.

There’s nothing better at a wedding than the exchange of vows…except for the dessert table, that is! Move over, sister, because we’re heading straight for the reception hall to fawn over the cakes, pies, and treats. So don’t forget to tie your wedding colors into the frosting and candy coating your guests are dreaming of. Marsala is a great color to pair with tea-flavored cakes or red velvet snacks. Decorate the sweets with seasonal berries or pink peonies to brighten up a white cake or a dark chocolate dessert.

Don’t get overwhelmed. Not yet, anyway! This is just the first of many Pantone color reports to come. Sink into the comfort of Marsala as you shop around for the perfect wedding look. Like a cozy autumn sweater, this is hue is something you can really get used to. Tune in next week for more Spring 2014 Pantone colors to pair with Marsala for a trendy and modern look.

Fairy Tale Wedding Inspiration

Don’t just dream about your perfect wedding. We all grew up with fairy tales and the images stuck with us our whole lives. Use that idea of a whimsical, ornate, and romantic ceremony to fuel your wedding’s atmosphere for an unforgettable night among loved ones.

The aisle is the first part of your wedding you truly get to experience. Why not make it as dreamy as you feel. Float down the aisle on a bed of rose petals or walk through a pair of creaky old doors to start your new and incredible life. Like the children in The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, you will pass through the threshold of your normal life and into the next, new, exciting one!

How will you dress up your wedding arch? A cloud of baby’s breath wreaths will give your venue an ethereal look, much like you and your beau are floating in midair. Big organic shapes will dwarf you, making the world around you seem full of magic and surprises.

The lighting is fun to play with for a fairy tale wedding. Make the colors gleam in soft golds and yellows. Chandeliers of twinkling lights look like fireflies lighting your way to the dance floor. Sparklers at night look like mischievous brownies casting magic spells in the trees at your outdoor wedding.

Your groom will make the best Prince Charming. Whether dressed up or down, casual or formal, he’ll know just how to sweep you off your feet.

Be the princess you always dreamed of becoming. Don your golden slippers and your flowing gown and join the celebration with an air of excitement. The small details are what matter. Let your hair down and wear your favorite jewelry as a lucky charm.

Golden glitter and blush colors adorn the tables, chairs, and reception areas for a night you”ll never forget. Floral details pop against the dark and romantic forest backdrop. Hanging vines and velvet chairs finish off the look.

Are you ready to plan your fairy tale-come-true? You and your very own Prince Charming have a lot to look forward to and all the excitement and planning will be worth it. Remember, this is the biggest day of your life, so why not make it perfect?! For more inspiration for your themes and color palettes, visit our Pinterest page.

Weddings Around the World: Italy

We all dream about packing our bags and living in Italy for a little part of our lives, don’t we? Perhaps at least indulging in a destination wedding or a Mediterranean honeymoon. There’s nothing that says “That’s Amore” like a night or three in the streets of Venice, but why? This European country that promises tall, dark and handsome strangers, flowing wine, and love love love must have some pretty fantastic wedding customs. Let’s see how this beautiful slice of the world seals their lovebirds’ destinies forever.

The wedding day is set, and it will most likely be on a Sunday. Sunday is the luckiest day to get married, a superstition that supposedly brings long life, prosperity, and fertility. The night before, the bride stays at her parents’ house and wears green for good luck the next day. She is not to wear any gold except her wedding ring. It is considered bad luck for her to see herself in the mirror in full the full bridal outfit, so often the bride will take off a shoe, earring, or glove before she sees herself all made up.

A traditional look for the Italian bride was to wear a black dress with a white hat. This would be her second-finest dress, her first being the dress to wear at the reception.

The groom often carries a piece of iron in his pocket for good luck. The iron wards off the evil eye from envious guests. He carries a bouquet on the wedding day to present to his bride, the color and style chosen by him for the lucky lady.

Another measure for good luck during the celebration is for the groom to cut his tie into pieces and the bride to rip her veil. The tie pieces would be sold off to wedding guests for money. The bride wears a small satin sack on a string around her neck. As guests approached her at the reception or on the dance floor, they would place money in the pouch for her new life with her husband.

At the reception, the bride’s garter is removed and the groom throws it to the guests. Whichever man retrieves it must dance with the single woman who catches the bouquet. After the dance, the owner of the garter asks his dance partner to wear the garter. This is for good luck and often for match making!

The most important part of the wedding is the food! The meals take hours and there are dozens of dishes to enjoy. One of the customs is to have a dessert table that is overwhelmed with pastries, cakes, and cookies. Be prepared to spend most of the wedding eating!

Italian wedding traditions are about family, friends, and extending the circle of loved ones more and more. If that’s not romantic, then I don’t know what is!

Gay and Lesbian Engagement and Wedding Rings

The wedding starts with a ring. Years of love, trust, fun, intimacy, and sharing have all been captured with an engagement ring. The whirlwind of wedding planning, celebrating, and announcements is a product of that ring exchange. And the ties that bind, that create dedication and understanding, are rooted in the wedding rings bought and shared at the finale of the wedding ceremony.

So why not show off the jewelry in your wedding photographs? It is your big celebration and it is important to focus on the things you love best about your engagement and marriage.

Gay and lesbian weddings are especially important to celebrate in this day and age. With more and more states legally acknowledging this special union between two people, the wedding rings are symbols for joy and triumph. Here are a few of our favorite photographs of the rings at the big day for these beautiful couples.

We can’t wait to see more of these moving photographs. Enjoy and let these pictures and wedding inspire you!

Our Specialty Item: Wax Seals For Wedding Stationery

Wax seals date back to the Middle Ages. Although clay seals were used in ancient Mesopotamia, the wax was introduced in the 5th century and used by royalty, aristocrats, and nobles. The emblem pressed into the wax, usually a monogram or personalized icon,  was found on either a ring or an engraved piece of metal carried around in a pocket. The wax seal stood for something official, a cordial invitation or a meaningful exchange.

Destination Wedding: Bali

We love Indonesia. If weddings were like vacations, we’d be having one every year and make our way across the spray of islands that make up this breath-taking country. We visited Java for a destination wedding and now we’ve come back for more. Bali is our island of choice and we’re excited to share the various wedding traditions found in this paradise.

Balinese weddings are full of drama. The theatrical nature of the culture begs a wedding to be full of gestures, traditions, play-acting, and comedy. The Balinese people love to celebrate the big life events with grandeur, so a ceremony and reception can last all day.

 Send Me My Free Samples of Lalita

There are two types of weddings. The first is called a ngerorod, and is a dramatized elopement. The Balinese bride is suddenly kidnapped from her home, a planned event acted out by the groom’s closest male friends. Although the the bride goes kicking and screaming, this is a fun event that allows her to show off her excellent acting skills.

She has, in fact, expected to be kidnapped and taken off. The father of the bride rounds up his friends and family and goes on a search for her, visiting pubs, parks, and friends’ houses, searching for his daughter everywhere except the groom’s home, which is where the bride actually is.

Once the bride is settled into her new home, the groom and the bride’s father meet and discuss a dowry and set a date to officiate the wedding. A proper celebration is held then with the friends and family to celebrate the marriage. This is not only a fun way to get married, with days of family celebrating together during “search parties” or “kidnapping,” but it is also a more affordable way to get hitched.

The second type of wedding is a more traditional one, called a mapadik. The ceremony will go on for as long as eight hours in one day, with processions, rituals, and prayers being observed. The whole neighborhood is invited and guests can stop by to watch the various traditions play out while they eat fresh food and drink juice or cold sodas. Bali is mainly Hindu, so many of the rituals are practiced that are similar to Indian and Nepalese weddings.

Different stages of the wedding take place with various costume changes. The bride and groom will often take turns feeding each other and imitating household duties in front of guests to show their willingness and ability to enter into a lifelong partnership with all the hardships included. An emcee entertains the group while the different rituals take place and help the weary couple, tired from hours of performance, stay energized and in good spirits.

 Send Me My Free Samples of Shoba

During the reception, there is a large buffet of food and two long speeches. A representative from each family will rise and give a classic wedding toast, along with whatever anecdotes he or she feels like sharing. Speeches can last up to 30 minutes, so prepare to enjoy your meal! Dancing is not traditionally a part of the reception, although live music is common. The wedding reception has been long for the bride and groom, so this is their time to relax and socialize.

This family style wedding is one we can’t help but love. The dramatization, fun, and wild style appeals to the inner actor in all of us. And what better way to start a new life together than a marathon of ceremonies and eating? Bali truly is the dream destination wedding location and cultural hot spot you won’t want to miss! Bon voyage!

The 7 Outfits You Need for Your Wedding (Besides The Big One)

So you’ve said yes to the dress…and the shoes, and the headpiece, and the jewelry.  But you aren’t nearly done with your wedding outfit shopping, so stop admiring the Polaroid of you in the dress store and start shopping!

These days, few weddings are simply a one-day affair like they used to be.  On the contrary, they are often weekend-long parties that involve several organized events.  And each of those events requires a costume change that you adore.

Why do you have to adore each one?  Because you’ll be reminded of these outfits for the rest of your life each time you decide to revisit your wedding weekend photo album over the next many years.

Plus, you’ll want to look and feel your best at every occasion.  So, it’s important that you take the time to browse, try on and make intentional decisions about your outfits a good deal before the days leading up to the big day.

  1. Travel

Whether you’re flying across the country (or world) or driving just a few hours away, you should have a comfy but cute outfit to wear en route.  Comfort is certainly key as these may be the last few hours of quiet and relaxation you have before the madness starts.

But, as you may also be wearing this when you meet the venue manager or see your old roommate for the first time, it should be a step above yoga pants and your fiancé’s ratty college hoodie. Instead opt for a comfy jersey dress and a light cotton cardigan in fresh, bright colors.

  1. Welcome Party

Most modern weddings involve a whole heap of out-of-town guests, hence the newly fashionable welcome party.  This event is generally quite casual and is mostly about getting in a few cocktails and a bit of catching up before the festivities get kicked into high gear.  For this event, you can even get away with jeans and a cute top.  If you do, just make sure they’re a newer, well-fitting pair.  Dress them up with cute boots or heels and fun accessories.

  1. Rehearsal

The rehearsal dinner and party is the second most important event of the weekend – well at least of the public events.  This should be the most formal of your outfits, but don’t feel the need to go over the top either.  Try to choose a style that contrasts the style of your wedding dress.  If the big white dress has a vintage vibe, wear something more modern and sleek the night before.  And why not go for a vibrant color that you know looks stunning on you?  Tomorrow you’ll be a vision in white, but tonight you can be as bright as you want to be.

  1. Girls Slumber Party

If you’re one of the many iconoclast brides who spends her wedding eve apart from her fiancé, you’ll likely end up reverting to your girlhood days of yore and chatting in bed with your sisters or besties.  This is a lovely, once-in-a-lifetime moment with your favorite women in the world, and your last ever single girl sleepover before you tie the knot.  Instead of just throwing on an old tank top and boxers, buy a cute nightgown or girly pajama set to hang out in as you giggle, have a final glass of champagne and gab about what tomorrow will be like.

  1. Getting Ready

You’d think that you wouldn’t have to plan what to wear while you get ready to wear something else, but you’d be mistaken.  In fact, this is a very crucial outfit.  First, you’ll be wearing it for a while – probably from the time you wake up till the moment you wear white – so it certainly ought to be comfortable.  But the most important thing is that it can be taken off without going over your head and that it looks pretty in pictures.

When it’s go-time, you won’t want to risk messing up your hair or makeup by tugging a t-shirt over your head.  And the pretty part is due to the fact that your photographer will be in your dressing room, all up in your business, taking cute shots of you and your mom and bridesmaids getting dressed.

  1. Letting Loose

Regardless of how comfortable and amazing you think your wedding dress is after you’ve worn it for a half hour during the fitting, you have no idea how you’ll feel after 6 hours in the thing.  And when it’s time for kicking off your heels and dancing like crazy with your friends, you won’t want to be inhibited by your dress.  Even if you’re sure you want to stay in it all night, have a back-up party dress you can change into if you feel like it.

  1. Goodbye Brunch

Because your wedding often does double duty as a family and friend reunion, you’ll probably be hosting a farewell brunch the day after the wedding.  Consider that everyone (including you and your new hubby) will be tired and maybe even a little hung-over.  That means you can get away with wearing something pretty darn casual that just feels good and is easy to throw on when you’re half awake.  But, you’ll still want to enjoy your last moment of feeling like a bride.  So, the best bet might be an easy, simply white sundress and flats.

Carefully choosing all of these outfits in advance doesn’t make you a crazy bridezilla.  Actually, it helps ensure that you won’t be.  The biggest cause of wedding-related stress is feeling unprepared, so the more you can do beforehand to make the weekend go smoothly, the less stressed you’ll be.

Having a suitcase full of planned-out ensembles means you won’t waste any precious emotional energy agonizing over what to wear.  Plus, it means you’re sure to look flawless and chic in every single picture that gets snapped throughout your special weekend.
