Rustic Romance: Wedding Day Inspiration

Hello Beauties 

Creating a wedding day that combines natural elements, like wood and cotton, with romantic touches, such as gold and lace, is very simple to do.  Giving traditional elements a modern twist will keep the Rustic Romance style fresh.  First begin with a natural palette, meaning any color you would find in nature.  I especially love soft peach with mint accents for a daytime event or rich aubergine with emerald, for a more glamorous affair.  Gold would pair well with either of these choices.

Incorporate both masculine and feminine elements in each area

Every wedding needs a few elements to create a memorable experience, such as a welcome area, guest book display, an escort card display and a favor bar.  A giant tree gives the welcome area a sense of strength, while the ornate frames balance that with a feminine touch.

Create unexpected centerpieces

Combine rustic elements, such as wood, cotton or even burlap, with more romantic elements, such as gold jars, hydrangea and lace.

Allow the Bridesmaids to choose their own gown in coordinating colors

This will allow each woman to feel their best (and look their best).  Bridesmaids dress manufacturer’s often offer multiple dresses in coordinating colors.  Be sure to have the girls get different styles and also different textures, some girls should wear chiffon and others raw silk or lace, for example.  Also, don’t be afraid of pattern (Molly Sims did an amazing job incorporating pattern into her bridal party).

Modern, Luxurious and Magical Escort Card Inspiration

Hello Beauties!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  I have been busy completing projects for an upcoming wedding I’m coordinating! I can’t wait to share the pictures.

I have been looking for Modern, Luxurious and Magical inspiration for an escort card display and here are my favorite finds from Pinterest.  Be sure to Follow MLM Worldwide Event Planning on Pinterest for a daily dose of great inspiration.

Escort cards can be displayed in a traditional arrangement on a table with a show stopping centerpiece

One way to get a lot of bang out of your floral budget is to have the largest arrangement at the wedding on the escort card table.  It is the first thing guests will see before entering the actual reception so a large arrangement will make a lasting impression

Another great idea for the escort table is the edible escort card 
A miniature bottle of ketchup would be a great addition to a casual b-b-q.  
Bottled of soda adds a great pop of color to a bright, modern event.   
Stripped Lollipops in a green silk box adds a playful element to a stuffy black tie affair. 
A terra cotta pot of fresh herbs would make a wonderful edible favor for the guest to take home

Table assignments etched onto vintage window panes is an unexpected update on the traditional display
A rusted wagon filled with wheat grass keeps the escort tags in order
A sunflower for each guest look amazing at a Summer wedding
A tiny bundle of Lavender would not only look beautiful but be fragrant as well
A gilded gold frame with rows of lace is a great blend way to display the escort cards.  The clothespins holding the cards to the lace can be glittered to add extra sparkle
A vintage key is a wonderful keepsake 
The Escort Card Display is a great way to add some personality into your event.  Incorporate something you love to do as a couple or showcase your wedding colors in an unexpected way.  For more escort card ideas visit my Pinterest Page
