A Wedding Soiree by Tara Guerard
August 18, 2008

We have big news at Style Me Pretty! I've kept it hush, hush for 9 whole months, but there is no hiding it now. I am having my first little girl...as we speak!! I am actually being induced this morning, so...in the past few weeks, I've recruited the help of some of my favorite Little Black Book members to keep you inspired and excited, while I take a bit of time to get to know our little bundle of beauty.

We have some of the most innovative and talented people participating in our guest blog feature and I really can't wait to show you all of the incredible ideas and experiences that they have to share with you. So, let's get right to it!

First up, the oh-so-talented Tara Guerard of Soiree in Charleston, and the author of the hugely successful book Southern Weddings!!

From Tara..."A Wedding Soiree by Tara Guerard"


Top Left: The front doors of the synagogue were adorned with cute little wreaths hanging by copper satin ribbon. The color copper was chosen because it matched the bride's hair color!

Center: A great way to make an impact for the centerpiece without spending a lot of money; is to use a single stem of your favorite flower and place it in a beautiful dish. We used a single peony in a compote dish..so elegant! Use lots of votives too!

Bottom right: For the satin chuppah, we custom made the panels and top so one side was blue and the other was copper. The tie backs where made with blue satin ribbon, knotted with white cymbidium orchards! So pretty!

This wedding is so insanely beautiful, but honestly...what else would you expect from a talent like Tara! Stay tuned, we have more to come!
