[Around the Web] Lace Inspiration

Today, I snuck onto Alisha, one of my close friends pinterest board [Lace, Lace, Lace] for a little Around the Web inspiration. I LOVE lace for weddings so I hope you enjoy these inspiring photographs! My favorite element is Alisha’s Save the Date idea. Alisha is a very crafty person herself and uses scrabble letters on photo frames so I think it fits her perfectly!

[Design A Wedding] Jewel Tone Beauty

So, Wisconsin is kind of dreary on this fall day… No better way to beat the cold and soggy weather than to sit at Starbucks and design weddings, right? Today, I am going to share a wedding with you that I did NOT design, however. This wedding is designed by a good friend of mine, Jacqueline. You can check out her blog about fashion and ramblings at [Jac Maries].

Here is her inspiration board color scheme [I love the beautiful jewel tones she has chosen!]:

Here is the wedding she designed:

Bride: A Whispy, A-Line Dress and teal heels.
Groom: Tan Suit for a casual appeal.
Bridesmaids: All different jewel tone dresses to coordinate and tan matching shoes with a bow.
Groomsmen: Tan suit minus the jacket to compliment the casual groom.
Ceremony: Backyard ceremony, outdoors.
Reception: Long tables set up outdoors with twinkle lights above.
Invitations: Purple and simple.
Bouquet: Purple to compliment the color scheme and invitations.
Centerpieces: Floating candles to save on flowers.
Flower Girl: A cute sleeveless dress that coordinates with all three bridesmaids dresses.
Favor: Burlap bags with a jar of homemade honey. How cozy!
Dessert: Teal cupcakes to match the bride’s shoes.

[Design A Wedding] Fall Wedding Inspiration

Good afternoon! Does anyone else have the most beautiful weather today? 60s with a crisp breeze? This is why I LOVE fall…

And speaking of fall, I’ve decided to do another sample “Design A Wedding” for you. Remember, you can do this as a reader and gain credit towards a custom jewelry piece!

Today’s theme is “Fall”. Colors are of the typical, but not the standard, fall palette. Grays, Yellows and Oranges!


Bride: Added sleeves for added warmth.
Bright orange shoes & a gray and yellow veil/headpiece.
Groom:  Gray three-piece suit with yellow accents.
Bridesmaids: Gray dresses with cardigans for added warmth and yellow bouquets.
Groomsman: Gray suits with yellow and gray socks for matching and unexpected accents.
Bouquet: Yellows and Oranges to match the fall atmosphere.
Centerpiece: Candles with Orange and Cinnamon vases.
Food: Comfort food all the way.
Dessert: Yellow cake with bird topper to match theme and colors.
Setting: A rustic barn to illuminate the theme and pop the colors.
