Are you looking for unique ideas for a fun and casual engagement or bridal party? Look no more! We found a few beautiful pictures for your inspiration today. This lovely shoot can help many couples – especially the young and restless to plan a unique wedding party outdoors.
This project was inspired by the Valentine’s Day theme and this is where all the red and juicy decorations come from. You can use this photo shoot to create your own beautiful bridal show, engagement reception or wedding after party. Perhaps this style can also suit a simple and intimate wedding based on a small guest list and all things crafty.
We love the unique inspiration offered by our designers for Valentine’s Day weddings. This theme is still trendy, especially when used in a more whimsical way. This fabulous concept is signed by Love Me Simple, while the floral designer is April Flowers. These two stylists worked together in creating a chic, feminine and contemporary setting for a modern-day romantic party. We think they did a great job emphasizing the sweetness of this theme.
The red narcissuses, the white anemones, the red garden roses and the creamy ranunculuses form the most impressive pair we’ve seen recently in weddings. The floral arrangements are our favorite elements used for this décor. The sweets and displayed on the tables are also meant to make the setting more sophisticated and lovely. The pretty cupcakes and treats are beautifully colored in shades of pink and red. They are perfect for the theme, don’t you think?
We are big fans of the dessert & flower decorations designed today for modern and vintage wedding parties. This is a hot concept that seems to captivate the attention of more and more brides and grooms of the moment. The idea of joining sweet delicacies and ruffled blooms is an exceptional idea, especially for romantic weddings based on such juicy themes.
This couple shows us different outfits and ways of creating a unique backdrop for a 14 February themed party. We adore the pink and red ribbons and the heart garlands made for a backdrop. The hanging décor is successfully promoted today by many designers, especially for those who love the DIY method. If you’re having an outdoors party and you want to make the place look more magical and sophisticated, use colored ribbons and other paper-made decorations.
Modern weddings are based on details and accents that reflect the specific of the theme. And when using the Valentine’s Day theme, anything inspired by hearts, festive garlands, romantic postcards, notes and flowers will do. Creating a generous candy bar or dessert buffet for your wedding guests is another efficient way to plan a successful and unforgettable romantic wedding.
We usually include gold-accented weddings in the category of “royal affairs”. But there are so many themes available for this style out there that we can’t find a definition to fit all cases. The regal flair is often provided by a metallic hue, a luxurious motif or a fancy theme. It all depends on the vision each couple has for their wedding.
In some cases it can be a real extravagant party, in other cases it can be just a relaxed smooth gathering planned in a more expensive-looking way. Perhaps it would be more appropriate to replace the term “royal” with the term “glamorous”. The glamorous style embodies different approaches, including the one we’re showing today.
This is a sensational project signed by lovebird style for a couple who wanted something gipsy yet royal. These two themes look fabulous when mixed, although one can never really think of blending the elements that define theme in a wedding. The results obtained in this wedding are pretty awesome.
We never expected to find such an original wedding based on two completely different styles. The gipsy approach is not for everybody, while the royal glamorous style is more popular and easy to achieve. But when joined, these two looks create an amazing theme that can suit perfectly well an eclectic 2012 wedding.
We love the golden accents inserted throughout this wedding. There is something about this color that exudes a charming sense of timelessness and historical happenings. We are very excited about gold combing back into the attention of our wedding designers. They seem to be very into metallic hues and glamorous themes these days!
The projects they design are more creative and artistic than ever before. This is definitely a big step forward for the industry of wedding fashion and for our contemporary couples who want something different, something innovative yet prestigious and high class. The gorgeous hoot we’re showing here is ideal for those who love the following styles: Boho, gipsy, vintage, royal and organic.
All these elements are cleverly mixed to create a remarkable setting for a versatile wedding. The offbeat couple who wants something inedited might respond positively to this proposal. Even the traditional brides and grooms who care for something more light-hearted and fancy can take into consideration this amazing theme.
We like the Bohemian approach on the bling style and the way these newlyweds tried to keep things simple, natural and fresh while playing with the eccentric gold.
This is perhaps one of our favorite ways to use the gold hue in a wedding palette so far! We adore the fancy DIY flowers and the sensational wedding dress worn by the bride in this shoot. It is a sparkly creation from Rachel Gilbert.
Edible favors are the new craze of the moment in weddings. This is one of the most beautiful and delicious trends the modern couple can follow for their party. We are very excited about this new way of interpreting the guest favors and the myriad of ideas available out there. Our designers are willing to devote more of their time and energy to the creativity chapter in everything they make: wedding dresses, wedding cakes, wedding flower arrangements, wedding centerpieces and decorations.
The wedding favors are the items that receive great attention from their part. They like this custom and wish to update it to suit different types of weddings. Everything in a 2012 is based on a theme. An original packaging or box can always transform an ordinary sweet into a showy gift for the guests.
The modern wedding attendees are always looking for the inedited of a wedding. And to win their attention and melt their hearts, give them something to eat wrapped in a stunning packing. The content is important, but not as essential as the packaging. This is why we suggest you invest more in the exterior assemblage of the favor. But let’s see what goodies we have here to show you.
One of the hottest trends right now in this field is the edible bag. We’ve seen it done before in weddings and we think the results are worth taking into consideration. We recommend the edible cookie bags in the first pictures for those who want to offer something crunchy but sweet, something like a candy or a fruit. These sweets can also be served as individual desserts at a wedding, as part of a generous wedding buffet.
We like more the idea of offering them as a take-home favor because they make a bigger impact on the guests. Moving on, we find other delicacies that you can bake in your own home: savory Madelines. If you decide to make them in the house, you can use your favorite flavors or those that match the season and style of your wedding.
For outdoors parties you can make Madelines of herbs or other seasonings like cayenne pepper or fresh rosemary. For something more elegant and tasteful, use cheeses. What about ice cream cups for a hot summer wedding? You can offer ice cream cups to your attendees when the party is over.
They can also make a refreshing light and no-mess dessert or just a quick snack during the cocktail hour. Another favorite edible guest favor for outdoors weddings is the candy-rock favor. These candy pebbles arranged in galvanized pails look extremely chic and fashionable! For a spring wedding you can offer your invitees bags of cherries. Which idea you like the most?
A girl loves bridal shower parties because this is a unique occasion to have fun and enjoy a cheerful day with close friends. There are a lot of fun elements incorporated in a bridal shower and lots of colorful items. One of our favorite items of this party is the cake. This confection is not as traditional as the groom’s cake is.
The contrary, it’s one of the hottest trends a bride can follow for a successful and memorable party. This cake is optional, but the majority of those who decide to have a shower party also decide to bring a cake. And the design is usually very unique and outstanding, based on the bride’s interests, personal taste, hobbies and preferences. In many cases, the bridal shower cake is inspired by all things fun and feminine.
This means colorful layers, sparkling accents and sumptuous details. You can find many original cakes out there designed exclusively for this event. Those who don’t have money to bring an haute couture cake can buy a simple plain confection and decorate it with their own hands, at home.
We can assure you the results will be pretty fabulous! You can use bows, ribbons, butterflies, pearls and other jewels that you like. The themes available for these types of confections are numberless, so make sure you take the time to think of the best design. Before making a hasty decision that you might regret the next day, take the time to think and rethink your options. You can consult with your invitees and find out what they would like to see or eat.
Both the visual and the flavor elements are important when it comes to modern party cakes. This is why you have to find a beautiful combination between the design and the flavor of the cake.
The bridal shower party is meant to be a party for girls, when the bride has the opportunity to celebrate her last day or days of being a single woman. This is also a great occasion for the bride to learn more things about the new life she’s embarking in with her future husband from the more advised guests.
These types of parties have become important customs in the wedding ceremony. It doesn’t matter how ample or intimate the party is, this event must take place. You can meet with your girls anywhere: in your backyard, in your own home or out in the city. The home of the maid of honor is usually the primary venue to consider for these types of parties. But if you want something more luxurious and fancy, you can go to a restaurant. The gorgeoues bridal shower cakes we’re showing here are from Maxie B’s.
One of the most delicate things a bride has to take care of for the wedding party is the hairstyle. Selecting the most romantic look for the religious ceremony is perhaps easier, because this style is very specific and clearly delimited. But finding the right style for the night party is surely a bit more troubling. The palette of choices is rich and generous for this case too, but the looks are very different.
This is why you have to think and rethink well enough your options before making the last call. In general, a good and efficient way to narrow down a large list of choices is to take into consideration the principal aspects of the wedding: the formality, the theme, the venue, the season, the color-palette and the amplitude.
When planning the best bridal ensemble for your wedding you have to consider all these essential factors. They can and should influence your final choices. This way you can be sure your look is appropriate, coherent and 100% matching with the general style of the wedding. But how do you choose the best hairstyle for the party?
Well, the first thing you have to do is to look at the gown design. If you’re wearing the same dress at the party, consider a similar hairdo with the one you’ve worn at the ceremony, only make it a bit more simplistic. Remember that everything planned for the reception has to be practical and easy going.
Updos are for certain the best ones to go. A party involves a lot of dancing, moving and fun and these things won’t be possible while wearing a heavy dress and a lot of accessories or jewels. So keep everything simple and clean. The neckline of the gown is essential when selecting the best hairdo for the party. Make sure the style you picked emphasizes or at least complements the unique features of the design, fabric, texture or embroidery. It would be great to find a style that can be both wearable and glamorous. These are the two quintessential elements or qualities a bride wants for her wedding party look: comfort and glamour. Wearing your hair up during the party might be a good idea for both short and long-haired brides.
It would be pointless to wear soft curls or sophisticated hairdos because you will simply lose them on the dance floor. This doesn’t mean that you should leave your hair simple, clean and straight. You can opt for braids or wreaths – these are very hot and trendy these days. Loose French twists and chignons held tight are great selections in this regard.
Shoes are essential for a modern bride. Beyond any addiction, the fashionista brides must find a unique pair of shoes to wear at her wedding. We know that women are crazy about shoes and they would spend a fortune on a closet full of shoes and sandals, if they had one! The wedding day is supposed to be the apogee of a woman’s beautiful look.
She has to do everything in her power to obtain that spectacular look required for such an important event. Each detail counts. Wedding shoes are perhaps the elements that can add a sleek finish to your look. The range of styles available today on the market is absolutely remarkable!
As in any other wedding filed, wedding shoes are created nowadays with more care and attention by our talented designers. This is why the results are so impressive. The shoes promoted today are inspired by the fanciest details of both the old and new couture. The shoes we’re showing here today are from Christian Louboutin.
Those who haven’t heard of this designer have the chance to view here some of the most stylish pieces he created for his new and old collections. These creations should be seen by all brides out there, because the design is pretty amazing. We are aware of the fact that you guys are only searching for originality and so we’ve decided to make a fine selection of the most attractive styles you can find in Christian’s portfolio.
This couturier started his business in 1992 when he also opened his first boutique in Paris. Nothing can compare to the elegance, sensuality and versatility of the Parisian style and brides who have a high flair for fashion and style know it. Those who adore the Spanish couture instead and wish to wear something more vibrant and romantic can turn to a Rosa Clara design.
If you’re in for something glamorously elegant, you can choose from Badgley Mischka’s collections. We’ve noticed that platform wedding shoes are in big vogue these days for weddings. More and more designers decide to create high heel wedding shoe collections for both classic and modern brides.
This means that contemporary women are finally ready to wear something more provocative, dramatic and outstanding at their wedding. A pair of high hells can make a woman stand tall and look at her best! The lines of Christian Louboutin are for those who prefer something more delicate, feminine and romantic with a fancy whimsy twist. The glass slipper designs look phenomenal and they can fit and flatter the modern-day Cinderella type of bride. Check out the Petal Shoe Collection if you want to see something special.
We invite couples who are planning a unique wedding in an outer region and need a little bit of inspiration for the reception and décor to take a look at the pictures we’ve posted on this page. Weddings abroad are not rare events. More and more brides and grooms of today opt for the exotic or casual style provided by a beach, island or coast wedding.
But there are also many couples who think that they can obtain the same fresh and cozy effect on a local beach or in a backyard. They don’t see the point in traveling so far, over oceans and seas to plan a tropical wedding. It’s true that with the modern means of decoration the newlyweds today can recreate a similar flirty and flattering seaside style on a local sandy beach venue. But the effect is not the same.
The ocean view, the luxurious environment, the salty breeze and all the fun activities you can do before and after the wedding in a destination resort are the elements that make the difference. Beach locations are not the only ones to go when it comes to destination affairs. You can opt for the glamorous style and go for a Vegas, New York or Hollywood-inspired wedding. If you prefer something more Hispanic, go for a Mexico rustic wedding.
Adventurous brides and grooms can plan a wild wedding in the mountains of Austria. Anything is possible and doable! You just have to pick the wedding style that flatters you most or the one that reflects your personality and vision. In the first picture we find a beautiful wedding aisle décor that can be packed and shipped abroad. You guys can take these details with you wherever you go! They are easy to handle, disassemble and arranged again in their initial form.
These hibiscus trees can fit any type of wedding planned in a tropical region. But you can find other types of trees or flowers and pots to choose from. Another great idea to mark a destination wedding is to use map packaging for the wedding details. The second picture shows us a few great map favor boxes you can create for your guests.
But you can adopt this style for the entire wedding, if you do want something truly original, crafty and distinctive. Use map paper to cover the flower vases, the candles and the other accessories that compose your wedding décor. Finish the design with a coordinate ribbon for a more elegant look. Destination charms and scented candles can also make great choices for destination wedding favors. Get inspired from the next two photos for more ingenious wedding destination ideas.
For a wedding party to be a real success we suggest you use al the tricks and tips you can find to make this event a lifetime hit. You should consider yourself a lucky bride or groom to be able to plan your wedding by using so many creative ideas and fabulous themes! Never before the couples had so many opportunities as you do now! And you should exploit the best of it by using only creative & fun decorations and arrangements for the wedding.
In this article you guys can find great content about wedding stationery ideas that you can choose or get inspired for your own wedding project. The pictures that come along are relevant for this topic and also highly inspiring for those who are visually stimulated.
There are no rules or regulations when it comes to playing creative. There are no more etiquettes or traditional constraints to take care of when planning a modern wedding. The only code that you can follow is your own. Use your imagination to create expressive decorative items and arrangements that can speak of your personality and vision. Don’t be afraid to follow your intuition or to use your sense of creativity for you will only have to win of this!
The first type of wedding stationery we’re presenting here is a creative wedding menu display. The designers were truly inspired to use bills of fare for these decorations. They fashioned the papers in a very unique and artistic way so that it can fit a romantic outdoors wedding. The whole arrangement looks divine due to the coherent and unified color-scheme used for the flowers, tablecloths and plats and menu cards.
The next idea refers to file card guest books. This style is ideal for the contemporary couples who want to escape the traditional or standard type of guest book. You can use cards from an address file to make the adorable guest book! The alphabetical cards are handmade from vintage papers and this is why they look so eye-catchy and chic. This is a nice and flattering way to ask your friends & family to note down a message.
In the third image we find a beautiful type of stationery created for bridesmaids in a very unique “floral” way. The handwritten note is gorgeously adorned with a miniature bouquet and so we find it impossible or highly improbably for a bridesmaids to refuse the invitation. Honor your friendship and flatter your girls by sending them romantic keepsake invitation cards like these ones! For the table centerpieces you can use scented confetti with a delicate floral perfume that will leave your guests enchanted with pleasure!
