What’s Your Bridal Style: A Girl & Her Table {The Series}

bridal-styles

Happy Monday! It’s the start of a new week and we’re over-the-moon excited to be launching a new blog series. Taking cue from all the great feedback we’ve received on the Bridal Style approach to this year’s issue of Weddingstar magazine, we’ve decided to use our blog to expand on and explore the styles in all their pretty details. We’ll be breaking it all down to somewhat of a science, showing how personal style translates into a wedding design, in hopes that it’ll spark inspiration for all the brides who have yet to define their wedding style.

We’re calling the series A Girl & Her Table and because we’re in the depths of a long cold winter and in need of a serious pick me up, we’re starting the series with a punch of color and a dose of sunshine. With the Beach Boys playing in the background, and Twizzlers scattered across our inspiration boards, we introduce you to our…

Color Inspiration {Black & White}

Black and White – it’s a classic color palette but surprisingly diverse. Whether you love the look of black and white for a black tie affair or you want a funky mix of eclectic style that’s always in fashion, black and white is going to be your go-to color combination. I especially love these two colors for a wedding because it’s a great way to have guests participate in the theme as well – everyone has something spiffy in black or white (or both!) that they can wear and with all your guests dressed in theme, your wedding photos will never look more amazing! Plus, if you want a little more color in the mix, this palette easily adapts to bright pops of just about any color under the rainbow! That’s why today I’ve complied my favorite black and white wedding ideas, accessories and more to inspire you to create the flashy two-tone wedding you’ve always dreamed of! Enjoy!

Erin + Mike: Love Conquers All

When we received Erin + Mike’s wedding, not only were we blown away by the photos (all of which are incredible!), but we were also impacted by the story of their big day. Originally the pair had planned an amazing outdoor ceremony at their favorite New Jersey lake, but with their wedding date in October of this past year, Hurricane Sandy had other plans! With evacuation looming overhead and Mother Nature’s special brand of havoc swirling ever closer, it would be enough to dishearten any couple! But Erin + Mike’s love conquered it all. From their first look and beyond, it’s clear that love is the only thing on both of their minds. And, I’m sure it’s going to be the only thing on your mind too when you see their beautiful autumn wedding with pops of colors, delicate fall leaves and a pair of some of the most amazing wedding shoes ever! Enjoy and congratulations to Erin + Mike – we are so happy to be able to share your inspiring day!
