Copper Wedding Inspiration via

Copper is our newest color crush. We love this warm metallic shade and think it’s perfect for brightening up events during the winter or summer months. Make a bold impact by setting shinny copper chairs around your table, or keep the look subtle by incorporating copper flatware or copper containers for your flower arrangements.

You can carry a copper clutch on your wedding day—our pick comes from Rent the Runway. What’s more, you can take this take this look beyond the big event. Stock your registry with copper goodies or pack comfy metallic sneakers for the honeymoon.

We understand that it’s easy to fall in love with a color. We have real strong feelings for rose quartz, which just happens to be Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year. We love this soft and feminine hue, and get excited when brides ask us to incorporate it into their wedding design.

This darling shade is perfect for after the wedding, too! If you’re a rose quartz lover like ourselves you’ve come to the right place. We gathered our favorite images from our archives and the prettiest pink products to show you how you can use the color on your wedding day and in your home!

Color experts Pantone released their color of the year for 2014– and it’s a shade of purple know as Radiant Orchid! We’ve done so many gorgeous events, celebrations and weddings in this tone. I thought I’d share a few images from some of our favorite parties featuring Radiant Orchid, a color you can easily incorporate into your design through flowers, linens, stationery, food, and details. Enjoy! xx

What’s Inspiring Me: Feminine Meets Masculine

For several months we’ve been planning a feminine meets masculine inspired photoshoot after seeing the most recent looks at NYFW. I absolutely love this look and have been dying to do something inspired by Alexander McQueen’s after seeing the Savage Beauty exhibit at the MET in 2011. I fell in love with his expert tailoring and fall / winter collection of 1998-99 for Givenchy! Our feminine meets masculine look can be easily achieved in styling your wedding or next event; think about clean, tailored lines mixed with textures that are remarkably feminine. For a dress– a structured bodice with a romantic tulle skirt; cleanly designed tables using interesting textures like leather, mixed with ruffled flowers like peonies, garden roses and ranunculus; notably masculine drinks like scotches and whiskey served in feminine shaped glassware. To me, determining the balance between masculine and feminine is a fun and exciting challenge. I can’t wait to show you what we have in store for the newest issue of WellWed Magazine, on newsstands soon!

I don’t know what it is about polka dots but there isn’t a polka dot pattern that I don’t love! Maybe it derives from our constant fascination by Kate Spade and her easy-to-love designs and ensembles, or maybe it’s my love for Roy Lichtenstein’s notorious pop art. I find them to be so fun and versatile-they can be preppy, charming, sophisticated, playful, and downright glamorous! If I can find a way to wear them or incorporate them, I will!

What’s Inspiring Me: Chevron

A few weeks ago I told Nichole from Coral Pheasant that I was fairly confident I single handily re-energized the chevron revolution on pinterest. She laughed and reminded me that I wasn’t that popular. In all seriousness, there seems to be a chevronaissance as the pattern has come up everywhere! I love it oh-so-very-much as it’s a modern take on a classic stripe. You can incorporate chevron into your wedding fairly easy, but just be careful that you don’t overdo it. I recommend using it in interesting and unique ways with blocks of vibrant colors and another pattern. Xo!

What’s Inspiring Me: The Color Red

This past weekend was glorious! With a well deserved weekend off, I caught up on many important things: sex and the city episodes, online shopping which involved a major chloe purchase, and my netflix wishlist which included Valentino: The Last Emperor. Watching Mr. Valentino prepare for his 45th Anniversary collection and retirement was riveting– and it also reminded me that I’ve been straight up sweatin’ the color red.I’ve managed to purchase a killer red jacket from j.crew (along with a bright red dress and sweet red pumps… opps). I’ve been rockin’ my  favorite red mac lipstick for a while too. What is it about the color red that’s got me switching out the pink from my wardrobe? I think the reason why I love it most is it exudes confidence.

Considering refreshing your hangars with some new, vibrant red pieces. It’s a big color this year at j.crew and kate spade. My favorite way to wear red is to wear it from head to toe. Red dress? Check. Red jacket? Check. Red shoes, lips, belt and bag? Che-ck! Wearing all one color can be really dramatic and bold. I’d die to design an all red event with neutral touches! Someday I might be able to add the ultimate red piece to my collection: a red valentino. A girl can dream, right?

It’s safe to say that I’m basically nuts about coral right now. Coral lipstick? Check. Coral pants? Check. Coral Chloe bag? Cheeeeccckk! What I love even more about Coral is pairing it with a super neutral color story– crisp khaki colors, ivories, whites, shades of grey. It makes that one burst of color pop even more. My ultimate fav? Skinny khaki trousers, crisp white collared shirt, gold accessories with pop of coral lipstick. A simple but effective accessory! I’m also crushin’ on coral + animal prints. Coral meets leopard print and fur? Hi. This leads me to my next conclusion: coral also isn’t just for summer. Brights are going to be very popular this fall– especially paired with neutrals. So dust off your tweed skirt and pair it with that amazing coral cardigan you’ve been sporting all summer.

So, how can you incorporate this same coral aesthetic into your event? Start with a neutral backdrop and build in subtle coral accents like khaki bridesmaids dresses with gold jewels and coral bouquets; oyster linens with a coral napkin and simple coral floral arrangements; ivory crane with gold emboss invitations and a coral envelope. Happy planning! xx
