The 2015 Weddingstar magazine hits stands in just a few short weeks (eek!), and we’re continuing our little pre-release party with more sneak peeks into all the incredible wedding inspiration awaiting release. Today we’re sharing a first look at the final of the three full feature wedding creatives showcased in the upcoming issue, and the one most likely to take the number one spot for top 2015 wedding themes, Bohemian Luxe. Brilliantly blending ethereal beauty with lush organic details, this one is simply breathtaking.

2015 Magazine Feature: Bohemian Luxe – Effortless Wedding Style

Barefoot, unpretentious, ethereal and stunning. This wedding look highlights traditional boho concepts and infuses them with a hint of the luxurious by introducing a certain level of grandeur and a touch of elegance. An eclectic blend of organic details surrounded by overflowing abundant floral arrangements, this wedding design approach takes the best of boho and gives it the subtle sense of formality that every wedding deserves. A soft palette of earthy tones is complimented and uplifted by pops of the prettiest feminine shades, and nature sits at the forefront of it all. Whimsical just took on a whole new meaning.

2015 Magazine Sneak Peek: Classic with a Twist

white wedding inspiration - bride

Last week we shared with you the first exclusive glimpse into the pages of the next issue of Weddingstar magazine {see it here}, set to hit stands early December. As a follow up, today we’re getting down into the details. Today, and for the  next four weeks, we’ll be featuring posts packed with peeks into the hottest visual content gracing the pages of the inspirational print publication, all on trend with everything you need to know for your 2015 wedding. We’re kicking off the mirage of pretty with a feature guaranteed to never go out of style, no matter what’s trending, the Classic White Wedding. But true to form, we’ve given it a bit of a twist. Here’s our take on a traditional wedding design staple.

2015 Magazine Feature: Classic Elegance – Tradition, Re-designed

Wanting a traditionally elegant and formal affair need not mean going after the ‘done and done’. Adding a twist to a timeless style is as easy as putting your personal mark on your day through a subtle infusion of color, texture and unexpected detail. Stick to the opulent, the luxurious, and the indulgent, to preserve the essentials of the design, but modernize the look by playing with contemporary decorative accents and loose floral arrangements. Think acrylics, blown glass and rustic inspired arrangements versus lace, pearls and polished orchid centerpieces.

An al fresco affair is a good idea any time of year. The fresh air, the complimentary sunlight, the beauty of the natural surroundings.

To help you narrow down the decorative details, here’s our list of the Top 10 Fall Wedding Must Haves.

DIY Wedding Wednesday: Burlap Wreath Decor

burlap-wreath-decor

What’s the number one thing Rustic weddings and the Fall season have in common? Burlap, that’s what! Like peach colored garden roses are to a summer affair, you just can’t have a proper Rustic or Fall wedding without a touch of the textured textile. So in the spirit of the season, and the popularity of one of our favorite wedding themes, for today’s DIY we’re taking arguably the most traditional form of burlap, the decorative wreath, and we’re giving it a colorful twist. From an ombre inspired backdrop to a pop of color chair back, burlap possibilities never looked so bright.

The Core Supplies

Look #1 – Ombre Inspired Burlap Backdrop

To Get This Look:

  • Use five wreaths, three large and two small.
  • For the large, spray paint one cranberry, one ivory and leave one as it comes, in vintage pink.
  • For the small, spray paint both antique gold.
  • Make sure to spray paint in a well ventilated space, preferably outdoors, and cover your work space with a drop cloth. And remember your painter’s mask. Spray paint in quick and even spurts, keeping your can approximately 10 inches from the wreaths. Avoid a heavy application as the spray paint will pool. But don’t worry about a perfect application. An imperfect finish lends itself to the rustic look.
  • As a finishing touch, tuck a few stems of water picked white lisianthus into your top wreath.
  • For a larger backdrop, increase the number of wreaths and keep with a mix of sizes and colors.

The Details

Look #2 – Centerpiece Detail

Give a simple cylinder vase centerpiece a decorative boost by using a burlap wreath as your base. Finish off the Fall look with some dried leaves.

Look #3 – Cranberry Chair Charm

Mark your bride and groom chairs with a pop of color. Tie on a couple of cranberry colored burlap wreaths with some twine for the right Rustic touch.

Product Spotlight: Ring Pillows and Inspired Pillow Alternatives

ring pillows

I hate to sound like a broken record (I’ll admit I’ve said this once or twice before) but there are few things I appreciate more than couples who infuse their personalities into their wedding day. The brides and grooms who take the time and make the effort to personalize every last detail to ensure their celebration is like no other. And it’s precisely these creative twosomes that inspire the designs behind every custom product in the Weddingstar line up. Take for example the ring pillows and pillow alternatives that are being featured today. It’s no coincidence there are as many designs as there are. And just in case there isn’t a traditional option that fits your style, there are plenty of other products that with just a little bit of imagination can be transformed into the sweetest of ring cushions. I’m personally definitely all about the vintage box. Which option is right for you?

Stay Tuned.

If you’re loving the idea of going with a unique ring pillow alternative for your nuptials and want some additional options, stay tuned for this December’s new product release which will see a whole new series of ring holders. Having had a sneak peek you can trust me when I say they are breathtaking!
