From Thetis of Little Sooti EventsNeon colors are set to be a big trend in 2012, so we decided to try something a little more daring than usual. We have found quite a few brides are coming out of the usual and expected style of weddings such as vintage or rustic inspired and are more inclined to try something new. We hope to offer these brides some inspiration by showing your readers. We are excited to showcase the upcoming and talented Melbourne vendors who participated in this shoot, such as Ham & Pea Design & Paperie, Cake Envy, Lee Bird Photography, the florists at Velvet Lily, and Silvana Mitkovski Hair & Makeup. Together we work on creating new and creatively styled weddings to suit the modern bride right here in Melbourne.

We created our own artwork for the backdrop by taping the canvases in various lines and painting to create the geometric look. We also cut out some shapes and taped them on. The favour box was very simple — we assembled the box and lined it with the matching printable paper. Inside the favour box were some swizzle candy sticks, wrapped lolly tubes, a cookie and personalised chocolate bar. We used old photo frames and painted them neon as the platters for our dessert table. These were lined with our decorative themed paper.
