Wedding Invitations by Oblation Papers

Green is in people. It seems that all elements of design, from high end interiors to wedding styling, is moving towards a cleaner, more environmentally sound approach. And, with designers now making it so easy to go green without sacrificing style, why NOT incorporate eco-chic elements into your wedding.

Oblation Papers & Press has been a long time love of mine. If you've ever seen their work in person, you know how luxurious the...

Ask Abby

Although this questions isn't directly related to wedding style or decor, I wanted to share it with you because I know how difficult wedding registries can be!

Q5 - My wedding is set for June 21, 2008 (the Summer Solstice) and it's time for us to register for gifts. Being typical NYers, we don't have much space. So, I'm trying to keep our registry as simple as possible. That being said, I'm trying to decide whether to register for china. I have very simple everyday plates (white...

Ask Abby

This is a great Dear Abby question, as I know that many of you aren't interested in classic bridesmaid style dresses...

Q4 - I'm getting married on the Cape in September so we are definitely keeping true to a casually, chic beach wedding. But I am really not having a feeling for bridesmaid dresses. Do you know of any lines that make maxi style, long dresses? Something a little more modern in shape then just the traditional tee length style? This being said I have a range of...

Another Dear Abby question for you...

Q3 - I am getting married in May 2008 in a church. My bridesmaid’s dresses are a tea length dusty rose color. My STD were beige, brown, and rose along with my invitations. Where do I go from here and can I change my color scheme for the wedding?? What other colors go with Dusty Rose??

Okay, first and foremost...as an invitation designer who firmly believes that invitations do set the tone for the entire wedding, I also...

Ask Abby

Another Dear Abby question...

Q2 - I know you often have challenges and questions with beautiful solutions on the blog, and thought you might like to address this one. I have a client who is 50 years old, marrying for the second time, and looking for a wedding dress. She asked if I had any ideas for a dress for her... I guess that's proving to be the toughest part of the planning! : ) She's a professional, a new grandmother, and I guess a bit "matronly", but she's got a...

Ask Abby

It's been a few weeks since we've done a Dear Abby session, and I have some really great questions from readers that I know you guys will appreciate. So, let's dive right in!

Q1 - I've been perusing your boards religiously for weeks, going back into the archives and waiting for your daily updates. But I've still not seen much addressing the problem I have: I'm looking for non-floral tablescapes. We're getting married on the beach in Mexico, and because the prices there for decor...

One of my favorite bloggers, Anne of Perfect Bound, has created the most beautiful inspiration board that I just had to share with all of you!

From Anne...

My own wedding is 34 weeks away and I am still struggling to pick a color

new wedding photographed (or posted on Style Me Pretty), I change directions all
over again.
