The Perfect Palette

Screen Shot 2014-08-20 at 3.23.49 PM

 

 

So here’s a question to think about… When you think of Lavender Herb or Aquamarine, where do these colors/scents take you?

SO very distinct in their own way and yet play a subtle roll of trickling down memory lane reminding you of a moment in time where these colors had a vivid meaning for you.

At this point you’re wondering where I’m going with this. Well, that’s how you choose your color.When trying to decide on a color theme for your event whether it being any social function; wedding, engagement, baby shower, cocktail party, corporate function and you are playing around with colors trying to figure out what best works. Use this method. Create a connection and the rest is history. Once you have an indescribable positive feeling, you can work with it and incorporate it within your event.

Pretty simple right? I thought so…

Working with couples we are able to factor in many things to help decide on what hues would work best for each individual. Such as the time of year, venue, indoor/outdoor. Then we are able to narrow down the options to create a look and feel the couple want. This way the color is familiar and yet intriguing!

Bridal Fashion Week

Screen Shot 2014-08-20 at 3.23.49 PM

 

 

Okay let’s cut to the chase and talk details….

Colors are much softer in 2015. We are still looking at pinks, white and creams but in softer shades.

 Flowers are not so bolt but statement pieces. Peonies, hydrangeas, sweet peas and garden roses are popular.

 Copper seems to make a surprise appearance wither as an accent piece or the statement maker.

Gowns are off the shoulder and lace is BIG! The detachable train is a hit. Two dresses in one is great for the comfort of the bride and a look change throughout the evening or after the ceremony.

 Catering ties in all of the elements because one can create a farm-to table menu, or vegan, etc. This adds the gourmand feel to the event. Couples are changing things up in 2015 and incorporating good old comfort food to their menu.

Since softer hues are used throughout the event, it’s only suitable to incorporate hints of glitter to gowns an accents pieces adding sparkle and shine.

Trends are ever so changing and that’s what makes weddings so BEAUTIFUL!

Hues, décor and of-course engagement rings are always trending. This year we’ve seen a wide range of bling. Engagement rings are true statement makers and this year trends are non-other than that. We’ve been able to categorize these beauties into three groupings. First, the Art Deco customized for each individual with a vintage twist. Next, the statement ring is a classic solitaire, which is by far the most popular. Lastly, the rose gold rings with mixed metals. A new trend that has taken by storm and germinated amongst celebrities. All of these rings and stones are uniquely beautiful and encompass the individual wearing them.
