Beauty Tips by Lisa Hoffman

Lisa Hoffman of Ceci New York is stopping by today and is taking a complete departure from her usual stationery themed features to give you some tips on hair and make-up. Sounds crazy, I know...BUT, Lisa just got married in a destination style affair, doing her OWN hair and make-up, so she has some great tips in her back pocket.

Hi SMP readers! I'm back from my wedding and honeymoon and I can honestly tell you...

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...

Sunflowers Set The Mood For This Connecticut Wedding From Carla Ten Eyck

Tara and Mark were married in May 2009 in New Haven, CT. The day was loaded with loveliness and joy!

From their totally awesome photographer, Carla Ten Eyck ...

Tara and Mark are the nicest, sweetest, most smiley couple. We got to meet all of their friends and families ~ and this is the part I love ~ it’s almost like when the house lands in the Wizard of Oz...

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...

It's time ladies!! We are taking a pause in today's guest blogging schedule to remind you that today is a big day on Bluefly, as the Nicole Miller Sale has started with still in store dresses at ridiculously low prices. We're talking bridesmaids dresses AND wedding gowns up to 60% off. It's a little piece of heaven right here on SMP.

The sale ends tomorrow, but seriously, I wouldn't wait.

It’s All in the Details, II

I am so sorry I left you guys hanging today! Viola of chewing the cud has graciously been sharing some ridiculously lovely details with us, while I've been "working" (and I use that term lightly because...come on!) at Engage '09 in the Cayman Islands. We'll have a full wrap-up session when I get back but in the meantime, here's Viola!

It’s All in the Details by Chewing the Cud

We are chatting with Viola at Chewing the Cud today and she is blogging about one of my all time favorite topics...details!

My favourite quote from designer Charles Eames is “The details are details. They make the product…It will in the end be these details that give the product its life.” In addition to designing invitations, I often collaborate with brides, planners and designers in designing and...

One Invitation, Four Ways by Chewing the Cud

Well, I am just soaking up the sun in the Cayman Islands (not really, we've been "working" the whole time...I guess, if you call sitting in on a series of incredible forums "working") loving every bit of my SMP vacation. And, I am so happy that my blog is in really good hands today as the FABULOUS Viola of chewing the cud is guest writing today!

So, let's all welcome the lovely and talented...

Tuscan Wedding by Aaron Delesie

So, the last wedding that Aaron blogged about was Tuscan Inspired...in Southern California. This one is Tuscan Inspired...in Tuscany! And the photographs will make you drool. There really are no words.

Obviously, there is something blissfully romantic about the thought of getting married in Italy. The food, the wine, the rolling vineyards. It's just a little piece of heaven.

Vintage Styled Wedding At Richmond’s Safari Texas Ranch

Laura Burlton with D. Jones Photography in Houston sent us two really fabulous weddings that she shot, and it was such a toss-up which one to start with! Their styles are so different. Their locations are so different. But they both stand testament to the fact that with love ~ laughter ~ friends & family ~ and a...

Inspiration Board…A Mexican Affair!

So, after seeing today's rehearsal dinner (which could just as easily be a kick-butt wedding), I thought it might be fun to put together an inspiration board for a similar fete! Of course, using products that are easily accessible and ideas that would look just as good in your own backyard!

A Mexican Inspired Rehearsal Dinner, IV

Today has all about fun. Day and Max's absolutely ridiculous rehearsal dinner that has given me a permanent smile and a huge craving for a margarita. I am completely obsessed and it all started with a perfect little clip that the oh-so-talented Curtis Heyne of Living Cinema sent me.

If you're at home, grab a cocktail. If you're at work, put your headphones on. This is one that you REALLY don't want to miss!

A Mexican Inspired Rehearsal Dinner, III

I really do love Aaron and Jen Delesie. They are on the short list of my very favorite photographers. And, it seems like everything they send me goes up on the blog...it's just always a no brainer. Aside from the fact that they get to work with designers like Lisa Vorce, they have a style that is all their own, a sense of effortless perfection that I fall in love with time and time...
