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!

Steampunk Week: Wedding Wednesday: Inspiration

On today’s Wedding Wednesday, I got a bit creative with the layout of the inspiration board. I’m curious as to what you all think. Do you like this sort of a format or do you prefer the formats I’ve used in the past? Leave me a comment with your opinion or drop me a line: bellememorieco@gmail.com.

For today’s inspiration, I found some seriously cool bridal accessories and an amazing dirigible cake. Seriously, those shoes just about make me swoon! If you’re considering a Steampunk wedding, consider a loft/warehouse type venue. It will give your fete a bit of an industrial feel and will put a big exclamation point on your Steampunk design. How about a wishing tree made of metal branches and tags in the shape of cogs, washers, bolts, etc. for your guests to write their well wishes for you and your love? For the groom? Think Victorian ascots and cutaway coats or go literal with a bespoke Steampunk design (stay tuned for Friday’s Favorites for some great designs on this front). Keep your color palette neutral and ad bits of metallic accents for an authentic Steampunk vibe. Most of all? Have fun with this them and make it yours! I hope you enjoy the set.

Wedding Wednesday: Neutral Toned Romance

It’s the middle of the week, the point where we make it up the hill and “weeeee!” our way down to the weekend. Here’s a bit of “squee” to get you over hump day and make that beeline toward the weekend. Who could resist a pile of otters? Really…they are SO cute.

Okay, time for this week’s Wedding Wednesday. Neutral tones are fast making their way towards becoming a trend in wedding color palettes. The popularity of Pippa Middleton’s white maid of honor dress at the Royal Wedding of her sister, the Duchess of Cambridge, has led toward the rise of whites and creams for the wedding party and many couples choosing to go for a clean natural and neutral toned fete.

This week’s post was inspired by the gorgeous bridal hairstyle model featured in the set. Her beautiful skin and natural flower enhanced updo call for a color palette to enhance and complement her beauty. Chocolate brown, ivory, and cream come together for a romantic vintage inspired theme that combines caramel colored roses, lots of hanging votives, and an amazing Badgley Mischka gown are sure to inspire the couple seeking to embrace the romance of the natural world. I hope you enjoy and let me know what you think!
