Choosing wedding colors is one of the most exciting aspects of planning a wedding. It is where you can allow your creativity to run wild. However many brides and grooms fear that too much color can make a venue look tacky; well, I am here to tell you that there is nothing to be afraid of! Be BOLD! Pick your favorite color and run with it. The key is to find a color or a small group of colors (3-4 tops) that best suit you and your significant others personality and blend them.

Think about the primary color, red, blue, and yellow. Together these colors may sound like a disaster put when paired with soft pinks, ivory, and hints of gold, you’ve got a pretty fab design. Remember there are many shades of every color, so if you love strawberry red and you’d like to incorporate blue and yellow look for mutes tones such as navy or pastel yellow. This allows your red to pop without overpower your eyes. It is not about saturating your venue in just one or two colors, rather to find creative ways in which you can include your colors. For instance, adding fresh strawberries on your cake to bring out pops of red, adding soft yellow flowers such as Craspedia’s with baby’s breath, or even navy napkins on your table topped with a rose or a sunflower.

These color collaborations are a great way to add great style and design to your wedding. So go ahead bring out your inner seven year old and color away, let your imagination take you places!

Other great color combinations you may not think of can be:

  • Tangerine Orange, Wasabi Green, and Ivory.
  • Strawberry and Lime.
  • Ivory, Aqua, and Peppermint Red.
  • Shades of Orange with Sky Blue (for all your gator fans this could be fun!).
  • Classic Lemon and Lime.
  • Soft Mint, Pastel Pink, Hot Pink, and Metallic Gold.
  • Lavender and Green.
  • Lemon and Gray, with Succulents in your centerpieces.
  • Eggplant Purple and Hot Pink.

 

Remember to have fun with it, 3-4 colors are just enough to tie your design together, any more than that can become too busy to you and yours guests eye. They key is to have the right balance and contrast amongst your colors.  Visit our color palette Pinterest boards where our fabulous intern, Ashley is working hard to create amazing inspiration for all my brides!  Thanks, Ashley!!

 

Happy designing!

Our new intern for Summer 2013 is Ashley!  We couldn’t be any more excited to have her on the team, if only for a few months.  We are so lucky to also get an intern from our Alma Mater!  Here is some of her favorite things:

Target is the happiest place on Earth; I could spend hours in there just looking around…and buying shoes.

Francesca’s Collection is my dream closet; I own way to much jewelry from there, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My dog is 70 pounds of perfection and the absolute LOVE of my life!

I wouldn’t be who I am today without my amazingly beautiful and supportive family.

My boyfriend, of almost five years is my high school sweetheart, is the most incredible person I know and makes me a better person everyday.

The easiest way to win me over is with a bag of M&Ms, or Ferrero Rocher, or chocolate of any kind whatsoever. (No shame, I am a proud chocoholic!)

I thrive on face-to-face interaction and putting a smile on everybody’s face- it’s the best natural high!

I go on Pinterest like it’s my job. Follow me!

I don’t drink coffee! (I’m nuts, I know!)

I believe a little dash of glitter is the cure to making everything better.

My interest in wedding planning began in high school when I became actively involved in working charity events. This was not unfamiliar territory for me, even as a elementary school student I would plan surprise birthday parties and baby showers for my teachers completely on my own, from invites to décor, to cake orders and getting school administration involved so the parties would run smoothly. Event planning has always been in my blood! The fact that every wedding is exclusive to each client makes business always fresh and exciting.

I am a recent graduate from Florida Atlantic University with a Bachelor in Hospitality Management. In my spare time I love to cuddle on the couch with my boyfriend and dog to watch a good movie. I also enjoy learning new recipes, cooking for my boyfriend is so much fun because he will eat just about anything, unlike me!

One of my very best friends came across these amazing bottles of reds and whites and passed the info along to me for my brides!  Don’t you love her? XO  Here is Swanson Vineyards- an amazing winery in fabulous Napa Valley.  These reds and whites would make the best gifts! Here is their history via their website:

Swanson Vineyards owns 100 acres along the Oakville Cross Road in Oakville, located next to Opus One and Silver Oak Cellars. Swanson soils are part of geological history dating back to the formation of Napa Valley. Tectonic-plate movements and volcanic activity pushed up mountains to the east and west of the Napa River, while simultaneously displacing the ocean bottom downward in the southern part of the valley.

The soils on the valley floor are clay loam, alluvial in nature, laid down as sediment from the frequent flooding over the millenia. It is here that our 100 acres produce wines of great elegance and finesse.

It is to these soils that Swanson Vineyards’ wines owe their wonderful aromas, flavors and complexities. The vines are further nurtured by the use of a variety of rootstock, clones, spacing and trellis systems, all selected to enhance the capabilities of the soil. The winemaker’s challenge is to ensure that all the potential of our vineyards is captured and reflected in our wines.

They have the cutest bottles pre-made and ready to ship!  Here are some of the fun labels on each bottle:

The delicious Modern House Wine is a proprietary red wine, carefully blended to appeal to a wide swath of palates… from beer-and-whiskey-loving wine novice to the most discriminating oenophile on your guest list.

Pay a visit to their website–you won’t be disappointed!

 

In vino veritas,
