Not reporting on anything new here, however, posting on some of the successful ways bridesmaids are jazzing their dresses up! Let’s be honest ladies, skin insecurities, do I need to go on? I’m loving the look of bridesmaids wearing tights (even brides!). Some parts of the country, summer may not allow but if you can sheer it’s still doable! It’s just nice having another accessory to spruce/play/glam up an overall wardrobe, am I right? See more of my favs… (more…)

I’m absolutely obsessed with all things opposites these days! Jcrew has spoiled us with looks of military, preppy, hipster mixed with hints of sparkle and glitter. My favorite is when preppy brown meets sparkly glitter! Your bridesmaids would look oh-so lovely in this casual elegance of a style.

I’ve seen several of us dreaming of vacations lately! I don’t blame you, need one myself. But finding one that’s budget-friendly is the big dilemma. Honeymoon trends are showing more signs of diy or even better piy (plan it yourself) trips and I like it! Sure, it can be time consuming but how about you just travel around in an Airstream for a week while picnicking on beaches, hiking, reading, resting and well, you know what else ;) This is my dream! The rest of the photos and styling are amazing be sure to click on the link above!

Also known as paper moons and star-flower pincushions! Move over yellow billy buttons (craspedias), scabiosa pods are in! I’m seeing these pop up in retail shops and weddings….and I like it. They’re whimsical, natural, rustic and look fantastic in just about any bunch of flowers. Include them in with your billy buttons and make them play nice ;)

Yay!! I was ecstatic when Amanda emailed me announcing her new venture! We know how lovely vintage is, but we also know how painful it is for a pocketbooks, especially when planning a wedding. While services have been popping up all over the country, the Bay Area can finally say it has an official vintage rental place for weddings! (one would think we’d have this already huh?) Be sure to check out the site! Words from Amanda,
“As a bride planning her own vintage-inspired wedding, I was frustrated by the lack of resources available for me in the Bay Area. After collecting vintage furniture and decor for years, I knew where to go to find awesome vintage pieces, I just didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg for decor that I was only going to use for a few hours (turns out I have an obsession with antique farm tables, and those don’t come cheap!) One day I thought to myself: “why isn’t there someone who rents this stuff out?!” Realizing that other brides were probably feeling the same way, I decided to share my collection with other Bay Area brides…and thus One True Love Vintage Rentals was born!
As the first Bay Area company to specialize in vintage furniture and decor rentals for weddings, we’re incredibly excited to provide local brides with an easy and affordable way to add swoon-worthy vintage decor to their weddings, bridal showers, and engagement shoots. We offer everything from farm tables and steamer trunks to typewriters and skeleton keys…anything that is beautifully worn with a little rust or chipped paint! In addition to renting out fabulous furniture and accessories we also offer custom searches, styling, delivery, and set-up services – we’re looking to be a one-stop shop for Northern California vintage-loving brides!”

A little bit a of sun and warm temps, and I’m all about spring! Very lucky to be living in San Francisco…yes, the fog can be dreary, but I remind myself what it’s like everyone else in the country and I stop ;) How about a little cozy relief for your guests to sit under during your wedding cocktail hour or dinner? Fabric canopies offer a whimsy and casual way to comfort a sometimes stiff event. Overhead sails, yes please.

I posted about Ribbons & Rust here – another fantastic place to rent vintage goods for your wedding or photoshoot. But yowza, Found is deliciousness! Lots of furniture, dishes, chairs, knick-knacks….basically anything you could imagine, Found has it! This business concept really makes sense, and I am happily reminded of that on a daily basis. Hmmmm, ideas are rolling….

Lots of creative ideas swarming the wedding blogs the past couple years. But it seems lately, vendors are styling photo shoots geared around winter, and I like it. Winter weddings get a bad rap (maybe because it’s FREEZING!). But if done right with a bit of coziness, it can be extremely romantic and unique. And because we are seeing more and more charming ideas based around indoor and outdoor winter weddings, I see winter 2011 and 2012 experiencing more company!

More colors in suits! Tobacco brown is in and don’t let that pocket square go bare! What will your groom be wearing? See more of the trends listed… (more…)
