Inspiration Board Contest, Part II

Just a reminder that Part II of our Inspiration Board Contest begins on Monday! Here is a recap of the rules...

For the next week (ending next Friday), we will be having the second part of our contest. Since the first round was so wildly successful and I received far more boards than I could post, I thought we should give it another go. To celebrate the growing number of creative, style-savvy brides and grooms out there, we are offering first and second place with a $75 and a $50...

I have been in love with Stephannie Barba's work for years now. She has been all the rage in San Francisco for some time now, but I was so thrilled to see her on Poppy Talk the other day. If you are looking for a super cute, fun way to spice up your wedding invitations, OR need a great map designed for your in-room baskets, Stephanie is your girl...

Tagged

A couple of weeks ago (hiding my embarrassment for just now getting to this), I was tagged by Rhonda at Our Wedding Plus. In a nutshell, players list 8 facts/habits about themselves. At the end of the post, players then tag 8 other bloggers by posting their names and making sure they know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at the tagee’s blog.

So, here goes!

1. I love magazines. No, not just love. Hoard. I...

Yellow Color Pallete

...Lots and lots of yellow. I have no idea why, but today, I am all about the yellow. Maybe it's that Summer seems to be flying by, or that it just happens to be a perfect morning here in Boston. Whatever it may be, I am absolutely nuts for this pretty yellow palette. Particularly for an outdoors wedding, using the natural elements to add additional whispers of color.

One of our readers sent me some info on a company that she freelances for...Elevate Destinations. In a very small nutshell, Elevate Destinations pairs extraordinary travel with a philanthropic intent.

"We custom design individual, group and family trips, giving a percentage of profits to the protection of natural resources and community development in destination countries."

Wedding Flowers and their Meaning

When I was choosing my wedding flowers, I knew only two things...they had to be monochromatic, and I really didn't like greenery. Other than that, I gave the florist a lot of room for creativity. Looking back, I really wish that I had known more so that I could articulate my exact vision. As I get further and further immersed into the wedding industry, I am realizing just how important flowers are to the overall look and feel of a wedding. If the flowers are overly abundant, the wedding seems...

Wedding Details by For Your Party

It's really hard to find ways to have personalized products at your wedding, like napkins and matchbooks, without seeming overly cheesy. The key is in finding the right colors, choosing the right font and designing a nice layout. I love that For Your Party has such nice options to choose from...really cute typefaces, really sophisticated colors and a really good selection of layouts.

Here are some tips for incorporating these...

Pretty Little Vases

I love the flowers that are featured on the Domino "flowers" gallery. The colors and textures are gorgeous, but what really caught my eye are the pretty little vases that the flowers are all placed in...

And yet, forking over $200 bucks for a vase isn't really conducive to most wedding budgets. So, last night, I scoured Ebay and Target for cute alternative options and found some...

Dear Abby…

Dear AbbyI have a color hangover from last week's contest. So today, I thought that we could address the somewhat neglected Questions that have been piling up in my inbox! I am going to let you guys take a crack at them, then I will post my answers a little later in the day!

Our first question comes from Dina...

Q 1: Here is the problem - I've always loved the look of an all white wedding. I think that it's so pure and timeless. But, I fear being too boring or...

It comes as no surprise that Stacy's Tre Chic Beach Beachside Affair takes the cake in our Inspiration Board Contest! Personally, I love the color palette and the simple sophistication of her board.
