Geometric Moody Blues

Geometric has been on trend in a big way. The sharp lines and unique shapes bring order, while color and texture can make the design more bohemian. This almost-earthy tablescape captured by Melissa Fuller has us swooning. The moody blues and soft ivory blooms pair effortlessly for a natural, laid-back "feel." 

 

Coral Valentino Wedding Shoes

The Rockstud Valentinos have become somewhat of an icon in the world of wedding shoes, so much so that some people may say “been there, done that,” and yet so many super cool brides rock them because they are exactly that, iconic. So we’re not done with them, not even close. And these coral beauties with their transparent, crystal clear studs are the stuff dreams are made of. A must for the stylish fall bride.

Modern Fall Boutonnieres

Don't forget about the guys! So often, boutonnieres are tossed together with scraps or feature one giant rose and have no character. But these little bouts by The Nouveau Romantics are the stars of the show. They’ve taken almost-cliché fall items and made them cool again: acorns paired with rusty red leaves alongside scabiosa, astilbe, and ranunculus. And with a green velvet wrap that’s to-die-for.

Modern Acrylic Signage with Fun Calligraphy

We are swooning over these place settings from the Crème Event featuring the coolest acrylic signage and calligraphy by Beijos Events. It’s crisp, clean, and so forward-thinking. “A little party never killed nobody,” is right.

Romantic Outdoor Wedding Reception

We love an opulent ballroom at a classic venue but don’t be afraid to think outside the box and discuss outdoor reception options with your on-site coordinator. The property may have the perfect garden or patio area where you could totally wow your guests by hosting dinner under the stars, with romantic draping and crystal chandeliers of course. 

How a Wedding Impacted an Entire Community

These wedding photos went viral last week and the result was truly beautiful. Photographer, Edwina Robertson-Cuninghame traveled to Western Queensland, Australia for the wedding of Ingrid Uebergand, who returned to her hometown of Blackall for the big day. Due to severe drought, which is affecting 80 percent of the area, Uebergand’s family had to sell the cattle off their 16,000-acre farm one week before the wedding. The financial and emotional hardship caused by the drought is tragic. After experiencing the adversity first-hand, Robertson-Cuninghame posted this photo of the wedding party on the dusty farm to Facebook, and promised to donate $3 for each share the post received to Tie Up the Black Dog, an organization that helps people in Australia that have been severely affected by drought. The post was shared thousands of times. Robertson-Cuninghame herself donated $15,000 to the organization and helped to raise thousands more. It’s just a beautiful thing to see a wedding and its vendors impact a community in such a significant way. This is social media at its finest.  

Wedding Donut Foodie Install

If you’re getting creative with the rest of your wedding details: escort cards, guest book, etcetera, then why not step up your creative game when it comes to the wedding food? Foodie installs are the new wedding trend, and we’re seriously crushing on this doughnut display by Details Details, Rachel Jane Couture, and The Donut Snob.

Tropical Fringed Fuchsia Backdrop

Pair wide strands of fringed crepe paper in varying shades of pink with big tropical leaves, and you’ve got something truly unexpected and brilliant. Yellow Bird Events took bright hues and interesting textures to a whole new level here, and we’re feeling super inspired by this wedding design.
