Seasonal Wedding Menu Ideas by Satsuma Press

We are finishing up the day with Lynn Russell of Satsuma Press and some pure deliciousness. Lynn is giving us her tips for creating a really beautiful, seasonal menu.

One of the things I absolutely love to do (besides print, of course) is cook.  And I think one of the most memorable parts of a wedding can and should be the food!  I thought I’d just include a few sample menus, one for each season.   These are...

* * *

When it came to my hair, I had a very specific vision yet no one to pull it off for me. Again, I was in the same boat as I was with make up. What to do? Then as I was talking to a wonderfully talented industry friend of mine, Stacey Lyn Weinstein of...

Threading a Concept by Chewing the Cud

Viola is wrapping up the day for us with some incredible advice as to how to take an idea and thread it through so many different elements within your wedding. I have loved having her here today and I have to admit, we've saved the best for last!

I would say my favourite part of the design process is to create a concept that speaks uniquely of the event and the people behind it. (I don’t like to use...

It’s All in the Details, III

We are back with the oh-so-lovely, Viola of Chewing the Cud who is chatting with us about those perfect details that truly make a wedding!

Think about packaging as a way to bring in a little bit of style. We used fabric remnants as ribbon to gussy up rather simple boxes. Another idea, package your favors with old papers and secure them with...a toothpick!

I completely love these...
