Wedding Wednesday: Gold and Dusty Purple Woodland Inspiration

Today’s Wedding Wednesday is inspired by a gorgeous bouquet by Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team Member, Amore Bride.

Isn’t that gorgeous?! It’s such a beautiful fall color combo with the muted gold and dusty purple, that I wanted to borrow the combo and use it for a spring woodland inspiration board just for you all. I hope you enjoy it and that it’s come to you a bit early since tomorrow I will be waiting for the conversion of this blog to my own domain at bellememorie.com!

Stay tuned for more Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team goodness starting on Monday, March 18th where we will be presenting the Third Annual Etsy Virtual Bridal Show!

Monday’s Finding: Tablescape Inspiration

Today I thought I would post some of my favorite tablescapes I have pinned as of late. I’ve got just about every style of wedding represented: glam, classic, goth, shabby chic, vintage, modern, etc. We are talking some major inspiration for your own reception decor. For those of us (like myself) on a tight budget, you can use these ideas and pick one or two details to focus on, find ways to DIY, substitute more expensive materials with budget friendly ones, or borrow the color scheme and still come off with a gorgeous tablescape your guests will love. So without further ado…EYE CANDY!

Wedding Wednesday: Chanel: White, Black, and Gold Inspiration Board

When the pics of Chanel’s pre-Fall 2013 collection hit my inbox, my jaw dropped and I knew that I had to do a board inspired by Karl Lagerfeld’s opulent white and gold creations. Even at 79 years of age, Mr. Lagerfeld continues to inspire and create amazing works of art that fly in the face of tradition, yet echo a bit of timelessness.

So, how did I translate this amazing couture ensemble in to a bit of inspiration for you? Think chandeliers dripping with crystals, tons of candlelight, and floral garlands hanging from a ceiling of starlight. I hope you enjoy!

Wedding Wednesday: Dark Romance

My household has a raging case of the cooties (all three of us are sick), so please forgive me for the lack on commentary. This week’s Wedding Wednesday is a gorgeous pairing of dark gothic hues and romantic floral and feather details. I hope you enjoy it!

Tips or Trends Tuesday: 2013 Wedding Trend: Old World Glamor

Number eight on Bride Tide’s 2013 Wedding Trends list, “A return to elegance.” The past few years have seen the rise of vintage wedding style, shabby chic details, and lots of DIY fetes. On the boards and especially on Pinterest, I’ve notice that couples are beginning to post lots of glam inspiration. Sara, of Burnett’s Boards says, “…2013 brides will draw inspiration from old world glamour with cinematic and literary influences like The Great Gatsby, Anna Karenina, Downton Abbey, and A Royal Affair. I expect to see decadent fabrics, corsets, ornate lace details, metallics, costume jewelry, and more formal receptions. This trend is already being reflected on red carpets and runways around the world and I can’t wait to see it find its way back into weddings again!” – Sara, Burnett’s Boards

I agree with Sara and I wanted to provide you (especially those newly engaged over the Winter holidays), a jump start on your own glam wedding ‘do. Enjoy the boards and I’d love to hear what your ideas are for your own weddings. Drop me a comment/request and I’ll be happy to put together some inspiration for you and post it on an upcoming Wedding Wednesday. 🙂

Wedding Wednesday: Request: Beauty and the Beast

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a good mini-holiday. Our was pretty low key, but I did keep up the tradition my late Mom and I had of watching “Gone With the Wind” on New Year’s Day. While she may not have been there physically, it was a nice night of watching our mutually favorite movie and happy memories.

Today’s Wedding Wednesday is a request from a reader based on Beauty and the Beast. I came up with three different version and I hope you like them, Becca!
