Reader Inspiration Board

This next reader designed board is coming to us from Kelly...

The inspiration board is for an October wedding that Kelly is planning...but, she was hoping we could give her some feedback as to whether the colors are cohesive, whether you would add or take anything off? She was thinking that the addition of a lighter green might be nice or possibly a touch of electric blue. What do you guys...

Real Wedding: Alana and Alex, IV

Okay, on to the reception photos from today's featured wedding...LOVE the cake. Love the simple but oh-so-chic table settings. Props to Alana and Alex for really putting their budget to good use!

From Alana...

My mother arranged all of our centerpieces for the reception and our tables were each named after a different Metro Stop on Montreal's subway system. On the back of each name was a little write up of how each stop related to our lives in Montreal. For our place...

Abby Loves…Pleated Poppy

I discovered Pleated Poppy's Posy Pins when I was on Sugar Plum's blog, She Walks in Beauty. I loooooove, love, love these little pins and am thinking that they would be the perfect addition to any wedding. Tucked into a low bun, in groups of three pinned to bridesmaids' dresses, even adorning napkins at each place setting. I could go on and on! I think they...

Real Wedding: Alana and Alex, III

More from today's featured wedding...lots of gorgeous pictures and fun details from Alana!

So, so pretty! I know that the bright blue and the green are a really popular color palette, but I don't always see it done as lovely as this. It's fresh and happy, perfect for this cheerful outdoor wedding!

From Alana...

Music played a big role in our day. The bridesmaids walked down the aisle to "Love and Some Verses" by Iron and Wine; my father and I walked down the...

Real Wedding: Alana and Alex, II

What I really love about today's featured wedding, is that the couple took a very cohesive color palette and style, and threaded it through every element of the affair. Because they were on a tight budget, this was a great way to really make an impact without a ton of costs. Here are more pictures and details from Alana and Alex's gorgeous wedding...

Real Wedding: Alana and Alex

I absolutely loved this real wedding that one of our readers, Alana, sent me...it's filled with lovely DIY touches and pretty, but really approachable style.

A bit from the bride, Alana...

My husband Alex and I were married on July 19th 2008 in Summerland, British Columbia, Canada. We currently live in Montreal, Canada but we both grew up in the Okanagan and couldn't imagine our wedding taking place anywhere else. Our ceremony was held on my parents' lawn, which...

Invitation Design by Ceci New York

More from Lisa Hoffman of Ceci New York!

The invite is printed on plexi-glass with the additional cards 2-color letterpress. Sent in a custom-made crocodile envelope with custom stamps to match. Every detail is a wonderful combination of mixed media art. The finished size was roughly 9 1/2 x 13" - so the size alone was outstanding! Their guests felt like they were being invited to a royal wedding.

Dessert Tables by Amy Atlas

Before we begin today's post, I wanted to take a minute to send out a prayer to all of those in Houston who were hit by Hurricane Ike over the weekend. I grew up in Clear Lake, Texas where many of the reporters were stationed. Clear Lake and the surrounding areas were hugely hit and although my family (parents, 2 sisters and their husbands, my niece, my nephew and my grandmother) all evacuated safely and our homes all survived, I know that there are many who weren't quite so lucky. My heart...
