The ‘It’ Dress

This year gowns all have one thing in common–they highlight in epic proportions. That’s where the ‘go big or go home’ element comes into play. Think plunging neckline for days. source

The more epic and overly dramatic the dress, the better–especially for spring affairs! source

It’s All About Some Chairs

Gone are the days of boring old conference style generic reception seating at round tables. Brides should be looking forward and thinking long family style reception tables, seating in the round when it comes to the ‘I do’ part, and just generally getting out of what has been tradition–especially for outdoor weddings. When it comes to being unique we’ve got you covered with the sweet article Unique Wedding Seating: How To Place Some Chairs. source


Be Inspired by Color

This year it’s all about “tone on tone” when it comes to choosing colors. When going for wedding decor, flowers, bridesmaid dresses, or even your own dress, choose a general color and use similar shades, tints and textures to create a unique look for your wedding. Get inspired by creative palette choices with color schemes that compliment  one another like make-up, hair and nature.
