Quaint Country Chic

July 13, 2009

Forgive my tangent but I can’t seem to stop playing around with red, white and blue combinations and 4th of July inspired boards….sorry, I can’t help myself. This time I was daydreaming of a quaint little wedding in the country somewhere with a few vintage touches and a sweet red, white and light blue palette.

Old World Vintage

June 1, 2009

Even if getting married in an ancient city like Rome is out of the question (and the budget), recreating that old world feeling is still possible. Have a banquet-style feast at one long table, place flowers in mercury glass vessels and incorporate stone statues into the decór…

Sweet Library Love

April 13, 2009

Here’s a little inspiration if you met your honey at a book store or the library or you just have a love affair with all things literary. Rather than sign a guest book, guests can type notes to the bride and groom on a vintage typewriter, piles of books could be incorporated into the centerpieces and library cards can be used as place cards. Incorporating a soft color like blush adds just the right amount of sweetness.

Vintage-inspired Homespun Charm

February 25, 2009

With wedding budgets shrinking these days, one option to consider is an intimate little wedding with lots of DIY details. In this case, the look is vintage-inspired with lacy luminarias, retro-floral melamine plates and home-made plaid napkins. Guests can be seated around one large banquet table for a family-style dinner and a few floral centerpieces could be supplemented with baskets of fresh fruit. Rather than a pricey wedding cake, cut and serve homemade pies (just like Gran used to make!).
