Inspiration Board: Garden Chic

Today's inspiration boards was created by one of our loyal readers, Natalie. It is absolutely gorgeous!

Natalie really wanted to go with something warm and colorful with a vintage garden feel, for her September 2008 wedding.  She and her fiance are also hoping that the wedding will be very casual and fun, with whimsical touches...a photo booth, paper lanterns, an outdoor seating area, candy jars. From the looks of it, they are right on track!

SocialDesign Blog

The girls over at SocialDesign emailed me this morning about their oh-so-fabulous blog. I am loving their sense of style, and I know that you will too. It is so refreshing to see such great wedding inspiration!

I love this wedding that they are featuring on the blog...yellow, black and white. So crisp! Although the girls didn't design this particular affair, it is still such great inspiration.

Wedding Cakes by The Cake Girls

I am sure that many of you have heard of The Cake Girls. They have been featured in nearly every major magazine and are even going to have a spot on the Food Network this summer. If you haven't heard of them, prepare yourself to fall in love...with a cake.

How gorgeous are these cakes! My current favorite is the top left photo...what a beautiful wedding it would be, if the entire event was inspired by this cake.

Nirali Wedding Magazine

I have always had a love for the Indian culture...the vibrant colors, the rich tradition, the elegance. And, having seen the beauty of an Indian inspired wedding, I am now even more enraptured.

Thus, I was thrilled when Priya, over at Love Made Visible, sent me a heads-up that the second edition of her South Asian inspired online magazine, Nirali, is now out...and it's a wedding issue! Definitely go check...

Dear Abby

Day to day, I get a lot of questions that don't necessarily fall into one category or another. So, I am going to make a new category called Q & A...basically just questions that I get from readers! Since most of you are in the trenches of wedding planning or simply read this blog, as a way to stay connected to such a fun time in your life, I really encourage everyone to comment on the Q & A's.

Q. I am currently planning my May '08 wedding in California and my Midwestern Mom...

A Mixed Bouquet Color Palette

I love this palette that Joy over at Oh Joy, posted the other day...varying shades of pinks, green, blue and white. It seems so effortless. So, summer chic. Sometimes, people think too much about their palette and it almost becomes cliche. The best wedding colors, in my opinion, are those that don't seem forced or staged.

Top picture is by Oh Joy!, Bottom (left to right) are from...

Desserts by Buttercake Bakery

I have officially survived 2 full days without carbs. If you knew me, you would understand just how amazing this is. I have been moaning and groaning about the 10 pounds that I gained post-wedding, for nearly 2 years now...but for the life of me, I can't seem to make it past 3 o'clock when I start a diet. Anyway, since misery loves company, I thought that I would post about this lovely little bakery in LA, called Buttercake Bakery, that one of our...

Today's inspiration board was done by one of our favorite readers, Lindsey (otherwise known as BurlingtonBride). I really wanted to share it with you because I thought that it was so well done...

from Lindsey... My fiance and I met when we were 5 and 6 years old.  He was a cub scout and childhood friend of my brother's. Fast forward to my last year in college.  He developed a...

Samantha and Ryan, Fashion and Flowers

Honestly, the most stylish part of this wedding was the fashions and the flowers. Each dress, each centerpieces, each bouquet complimented one another to perfection...all without seeming overly matched or coordinated.

First, the fashion...the girls wore butter yellow dresses from Simple Silhouette, with the maid of honor simply tying a navy ribbon around her waist. The boys were in classic black tuxes. I will see if Samantha will give us the...

Samantha and Ryan, The Details

More on Sam and Ryan's wedding today...I particularly loved all of the TLC that went into each and every corner of this wedding. From monogrammed napkins to picture perfect placesettings, you could really tell that every element was thought about carefully. Here are a few of my favorite details...

First, the cake. OH MY, the cake. It was so beautiful. It had these little fondant lemons that looked so real, you just wanted to touch them.

Samantha and Ryan, The Venue

As I mentioned yesterday, I attended the most spectacular wedding over the weekend. Samantha, an editor at a well known magazine, is a friend of mine from college and Ryan, a professional lacrosse player and now a dear friend of mine, tied the knot at Ryan's parent's GORGEOUS bed and breakfast. As I was going through the pictures, I realized that I have so many great ones...there is simply no way to put them all in one email. Instead, I am going to break the wedding down to three parts: The...

Wedding Hair Style: The Up-Do

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I was actually at a wedding in a small town right outside of Baltimore and I must say, it was one of the most lovely weddings I have ever been to. Every detail was executed beautifully, from the centerpieces to the fashions...all was picture perfect. Tomorrow, I will put together a full spread for you to see.

A couple of readers have asked me for pictures of my hair at my own wedding...I was lucky enough to have my cousin do my hair, so she was...
