2013 Pantone Color of the Year

One of the things I look forward to every December is when Pantone announced the color of the year. Yesterday, Pantone unveiled that 2013's color of the year is Emerald. As a designer, I'm drawn to vibrant colors. Emerald green definitely fits the bill.
This year everyone had fun with Tangerine Tango, 2012's color of the year. I'm sure that next year won't be any different. Rest assured that you will be seeing Emerald everywhere in fashion, decor, and weddings in 2013 and I look forward to it! Photo

Wedding Decor Trends That We Love (Part 2)!

We wanted to share with you more trends being used in weddings. Chevrons are stripes of inverted V's. They were traditionally used on military uniforms to show the length of service. Today, they are being used in all areas of wedding design including invitations, cakes, linens, etc. Ombre means the gradual shading from light to dark. It is being used on fabrics, cakes, flowers, etc. Here is a great example on these bridesmaids dresses. Photo Photo

My Collection Wedding by Colin Cowie is a free mobile app that allows you to organize and share all of your pictures with friends and family.
Another great new app is Appy Couple. Appy Couple is an app for guest to find out all of your wedding information like they would on a wedding website.

Wedding Decor Trends That We Love

We are seeing a lot of great trends in wedding decor that we absolutely love! Ribbon adds a fun creative touch to your wedding day. Seen here it is used as a focal point backdrop.
Traditionally, baby's breath was used as a filler for other flowers like roses. Have you seen the way baby's breath is being used to stand alone now? It can be very romantic.
We saved the best for last. Sequins add all the sparkle you could ever ask for to your big day. Colors like black or gray can be very elegant.
Have fun deciding on what decor style that fits your style. Happy planning! Photo Photo Photo

Congratulations Alycia & Ralph (Part 2)

A picture is worth a thousand words! You can see how happy and how much fun the bride and groom had on their wedding day.
Speaking of fun, I had a lot of fun designing the flowers for the wedding. I used colorful mango calla lilies, button mums, hypericum berries, fern curls, stock, Nora orchids, trick dianthus, and curly willow branches to give the bride what she envisioned.
My team and I set up lots of personal details like a creative clothes line full of pictures of the bride and groom through the years.
Guest loved finding their table from the escort card trees.
The reception was at the Payne Corley House which fit in well with the bride's "there's no place like home" theme.
The front lawn of the venue was all aglow with trees lighting up the night.
The design of the branches on the wedding cake flowed nicely with the curly willow branches in all of the bouquets.
We filled the table with several flavors of homemade jam that the bride and her mother made for guest favors.
The guest sent the happy couple off with an exciting sparkler exit. Congratulation to the happy couple from Your Champagne Wishes Events! Photo
