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!

Friday’s Favorites: Two Hundred Years of Mr. and Mrs. Darcy

Well, today marks the end of Pride and Prejudice week. I hope you have found the posts enjoyable and inspiring. On June 8th, I will be marrying Mr. Wondermous in our Pride and Prejudice inspired wedding. Only 5 months to go and I am SO looking forward to it. It should be a great time with the closest of our family and friends and I’m having a ball DIYing the majority of all of our wedding details. Have a great weekend and happy planning!

Monday’s Finding: Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice: Favorite Pins

Today is the 200th anniversary of the publication of my favorite book of all time, “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen. So, I’ll be paying homage to the book all this week and I thought I would start of with some of my “Pride and Prejudice” pins from that addiction we call, Pinterest.

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. 🙂

Friday’s Favorites: Bridal Bow Trend, Beyond the Ordinary Escort Cards, and Blush Pink

Well, we’ve made it another week. Here at Belle Memorie headquarters it’s been a doozy: I’ve had a flare up in my Fibromyalgia and our building is getting a new roof. It looks like my body is going to cooperate with my weekend plans, which is definitely a blessing. As for the roof, crossing my fingers that it will be done today…please…pretty please let it be done today. Thankfully, I don’t have to pay for it…lol.

This week’s Friday’s Favorites features lots of beautiful bow detailed wedding dresses and gorgeous blush pink dresses for your maids, uniting two of the biggest trends in bridal. In addition, some great unique escort cards and escort card displays and blush/antique pink wedding accessories that you won’t find in an ordinary bridal shop.

There are a lot of folks committing to purchase handmade artisan gifts for their loved ones this year and as a bridal expert, blogger, and bride, I can’t say enough good things about taking that same commitment with your wedding. As I have said time and time again, buy handmade, there’s nothing like it!

Stunner Thursday: Blushing Bridesmaids From Head to Toe

Well, its been a while since I have done a feature on bridesmaids and I thought that today I would use one of the strongest trends in bridal, blush, to give you some inspiration for your maids from head to toe. Blush is a color that tends to flatter everyone and for those of us who love vintage weddings, it’s a perfect complement. Another great thing about blush is that it’s nearly a neutral, so you can pair it up with both silver and gold and even a secondary color and it will look fabulous!

Wedding Wednesday: Antique Pink With a Hint of Mint

Today’s Wedding Wednesday centers on this gorgeous gown from Valentino’s 2013 Resort Collection. While not a “wedding dress” per say, I know there are many brides out there looking for something colorful and vintage inspired for their bridal ensemble. I hope you enjoy it! If there is anything you’d like to see on the blog or an inspiration board theme or color palette, please let me know and I’ll be happy to put something together on the blog. bellememorieco@gmail.com. ‘Til tomorrow!
