Geometric Wedding Trend

Geometric décor is a current trend that will continue to be seen more and more in weddings. It adds great detail to any theme and color palate. The unique shapes give your wedding the perfect chic vibe. So why not try incorporating this awesome trend into your wedding day with invitations, centerpieces, backdrop, or even your cake.

Metallic gold and bronze are the most popular for geometric décor, while adding darker colors into flowers or table settings will make any wedding more modern. Maybe you’re more of a vintage or whimsical bride. Soft romantic colors, and adding in some greenery or succulents will do just the trick. Below are some of our favorite geometric décor ideas!

Have a Seat: Table Number Ideas

One of the first things your guests will see or search for when arriving at your wedding reception are the table numbers. They are just as much a part of your decorations as they are a guide for guests. Check out these creative and unique table number ideas to show off your design style while leaving a personal touch.

Use photographs of you and husband as children to correspond with a certain age or year. Some photos might be awkward or embarrassing, but your guests will love it.

Incorporate your love story. Use engagement photos and/or the dates of your first kiss, first date, engagement, wedding day, etc. to add sentimental value for your guests.

This is a fun way to get your guests involved. Instead of numbers, use songs titles and their artists. When their table song plays, they have to get up and dance. This will help break the ice and probably provide a few laughs.

Another great way to get guests involved by having them personalize your table numbers for you. Have them leave messages that you and your husband will then read on the corresponding anniversary. This is an awesome way for you to look back on your big day.

Minimalist Wedding Design (2 of 2)

Earlier this week, we looked at minimalist trends in wedding invitations, dresses, and bouquets.  In the second half of our series on pared-down wedding style, we’ll share some simplified tablescape and cake ideas!

Keep your table tops simple with dainty floral centerpieces.  Also consider keeping tabletop decor low so as not to obstruct conversation and views.  Thrift various glass bottles and vases (or recycle your own!) and don’t worry about decor looking too sparse—the simplicity itself is the statement.

A minimalist wedding cake can still have lots of character, texture, and personality without being over-the-top.  Add flowers and greenery that tie in with your other decor to bring in more naturalness and life.

Spring Trend: Relaxed Florals

Relaxed floral centerpieces and bouquets are Spring’s signature.  Instead of ultra buttoned-up arrangements, this very natural style is making appearances during ceremonies and at receptions.  The style can contribute to a laid-back vibe without ever looking too undone.  These arrangements are also perfect as decor for a guest-book or gifts & cards table!

What do you think of the more relaxed Spring floral trend? Would you incorporate this trend into the florals at your own wedding?

Springtime Celebration—DIY Ideas

Springtime Celebration—DIY Ideas

Did you know that March 20th was National Proposal Today? It’s also the first day of Spring! Between the two, we think some celebration is in order.  So whether you’re hosting Easter, planning a proposal to a special someone, or just looking to ring in the warmer weather, the DIY ideas below will make your springtime celebration unique and memorable.

National Proposal Day

Already engaged?  Pop the question—to your Person of Honor! Ask your best friend, your sister, whoever to be your Maid of Honor by planning an egg hunt for them.  Draw them a treasure map.  Along the path, fill plastic eggs with pretty slips of paper that share why this person is important to you (like, “you have been my best friend since we were 13 years old” or “I know I can always be my unedited self around you”).  At the end of the map, hide one last egg with a message asking them to be your Maid of Honor.  Be sure to be nearby at this point—with tissues!—to ask them in person.

Perhaps you don’t celebrate Easter or are hosting a gathering unrelated.  These tabletop decor ideas will be a breath of fresh air.

+Decorating with Vegetables

Incorporating produce into your table decorations may sound strange, but can be such a beautiful and unique way to celebrate the new season.  Combined with lots of fresh Spring flowers (and even eggs!), it all flows seamlessly together to create a refreshing, cool, creative centerpiece.

+Egg Place Cards

These are an understated way to incorporate Easter and Springtime decor for those who aren’t too keen on a pastel palette.  With pretty calligraphy style writing on undyed but varying colored eggs, they’re a nice mix of elegant and seasonal.
