Colorful Weddings

Over the centuries, colors have played crucial roles in celebrations and events. Wondering why weddings are now a celebration of colors? It is because of the tremendous effect of these priceless gems. This article is designed as a beginner guide to colorful weddings…

Why should I have a colorful wedding?

A colorful wedding brings together bright vibrant colors and bright colors carry life and fun.

What is the most important factor when planning a colorful wedding?

Color. As with the word “colorful” itself, a colorful wedding feeds on color.

 

How do I Plan a Colorful Wedding?

Here are some points we’ve found helpful with planning a colorful wedding…

 

Choose a color range

While you want to have a colorful wedding, you don’t want your venue to look like World Color War 1. You could choose a few bright colors and go well together. Then, build around these colors, an element per time.

 

Use colorful invitations

A great way to set the tone for a colorful wedding is to send out colorful invites. A colorful invite will not only prepare the guest for the event to come but will also align the chosen color themes from start.

Adopt bright furniture

A colorful wedding is an overall effect of numerous elements, the furniture being a major piece. Using bright-colored furniture is an assured way to splash a bit of color into your event. Plus, colored and comfortable furniture pieces are great for pictures too.

 

Bring in the floral

An easy way to bring life and color to your event is to use flowers.  As with fabrics and home décor, brightly colored flowers bring in life and fun.  Hence, using flowers at your wedding will undoubtedly enhance the colorful outlook.

Small vases with brightly colored flowers are great options for long reception tables. Alternatively, you could simply use a flower wall.

Color the table

When planning a colorful wedding, every piece of furniture counts.

Color your tables with brightly colored linens, tablecloths, and napkins. Consider using colorful cups and plates. Have every piece on your tables bring in some color and your venue would be looking like a peaceful home of exciting colors in no time.

 

Serve colored drinks and food items

Again, every element matters. If you’re gunning for a colorful wedding, your wedding cake doesn’t have to be plain. You should have your cake made in fun colors. An alternative way to splash color on a plain cake is to have colorful fruits and flowers around it.

 

With colorful weddings, the little elements we often ignore go a long way. Have the little details bear fun colors and your wedding will be looking like a feast of colors in no time.

Our Top 5 Movie Proposals of All Times

Don’t you just love a romantic movie?

When you start planning your dreamy wedding proposal, it’s a good idea to go get some inspo from the greatest love stories of Hollywood. All the great screenwriters already did all the hard work of thinking about the perfect romantic and creative proposals, so why not use them?!

 

Whether you’re waiting for your SO to pop the question, or just in the mood for some loving, it’s always fun to remember these romantic, cheesy, emotional love stories. Believe us, it wasn’t easy to pick our 5 favorites for this list. It took a lot of tissue paper and a lot of “ Ohhhhh❤️”s from our team, but we’ve put together some extra emotional and all-time-favorite list of 5 top movie proposals :

 
 

Love Actually

We just had to start with this pearl, a movie filled with romantic magic moments that climax to the wedding proposal where Jamie professes his love for Aurelia in Portuguese, as her entire town looks on and cheers. 

siclaro!!!

 

 

Pride and Prejudice

Oh gosh, is there a list of romantic movies without Jane Austen?!

The breathtaking period scenery, unbelievable accent and lingo, beautiful cast, pouring rain, and almost everything in this movie just says romance all over it.  The second proposal of Darcy to Elizabeth just gets us goosebumps.  

And we just love, we love, we love this movie!

 

 

My Big Fat Greek Wedding

Just a sweet, private, and intimate moment is sometimes all you need, to create the perfect romantic atmosphere and just ask someone to marry. Ian asks Toula to marry him in bed, with no big gestures or pretentious manner. Just the two of them, in a beautiful shared loving moment. 

We don’t know how to say this…will you marry us? 

 

 

Sex and the City

Don’t get us started on Mr. Big.

But in the end, when it’s just Big and Carrie in that big empty apartment they never moved into and he gets down on one knee and calls her out loud “the love of his life”, there was a sigh of relief from around the world- Thank god! 

And then he closed the deal with the shoe… Classic!

 

 

Gone With the Wind

Even though Scarlette wasn’t in the mood for romance (to say the least) Rhett made up his mind! Scarlet is grieving over her husband but Rhett thinks it’s a good time to declare his love, waiting to catch Scarlet “between husbands”. 

“I made up my mind that you were the only woman for me the first day I saw you”.

Come on how can you say no to that?!

This is what we call an honorable proposal of marriage, made at what we consider a poor moment, But still Awfully Romantic.

Also- Clark Gable.

 

 

 

Falling for you – Fall Wedding Inspiration

As the leaves begin to change colors and the air begins to chill, the season for fall weddings is fast approaching.

Fall weddings carry a unique atmosphere. The warm colors, the rustic decor, and the distinctive light create a whimsical set up for a magnetic-styled event. We’ve gathered some ideas for an event full of color and spirit.

 

Nature-inspired

Nature brings us such beautiful changes this time of the year, it simply has to be combined in your event! Whether it is in the fall flower arrangements, centerpieces combined with wheat and hay, and foliage leaves spread all through the decor. You can even use this easy weather to have your reception or ceremony outdoors (which is a great solution for these social distancing times), under a canopy of flowers or leaves, and bring the amazing fall lightning into your event (and photos!).

Event color palette

This is the time to go crazy with your wedding pallet choices. Not the average white and champagne, but warm, earth tones like orange, dark red, gold or jewel tones like sapphire or emerald. 

 

Fall flowers

Take the seasonal advantage of the rustic nature to create the most amazing and rich bouquet for yourself, flower crowns for your bridesmaids, and for your SO- a floral boutonniere, that will compliment the earthy theme.

The drinks

Just in case it gets a little chilly, plan a warm beverage bar with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, warm sangria bowl, or hot ciders (alcoholic or not).

Dining

The rustic approach allows you to go the full fall bounty with grazing platters. Pile up cheeses, meats, bread, nuts and seasonal fruits for a feast styled dinner.

 

 

Wedding favors 

Warm homey giveaways such as scented candles, caramel apples, tea fusions, or a small jar of scented spices. You can even DIY – what will give you extra points for the “best wedding favor ever” awards.

 

Few more colors for you to enjoy…

Till death do us part -Halloween Weddings

It takes an original, bold bride to set up a Halloween-themed wedding, and we absolutely love the spooky inspiration this special day is bringing!

The end of October is very popular for weddings, due to the fall ambiance, and right before we go off to the long cold winter season. If you schedule your wedding day or minimony (mini-ceremony, as COVID-19 now requires) to Halloween, whether it’s by purpose or just because that’s what’s left, it doesn’t have to be all-black, witches and ghosts, but only with a few subtle spooky elements, you can add without sacrificing style or elegance.

 

A good way to start is to think of the decor. Halloween theme brings all kinds of goodies as venue options- like a haunted house as your location, Or just an old mansion with some added haunted touch, like candelabras, antique chandeliers, heavy drapes, and dark colors. You can go black and orange, but there are other alternative color palettes perfect for a spine-tingling decoration- fall tones as dark green, brown and burnt orange, or jewel tones like Drame velvet, midnight blue, and smoky grey.

As for the flowers, natural branches—no leaves, or big flower arrangements with dark burgundy or blood-red roses, calla lilies, and dahlias. Dripping candles and ornaments like skulls, black lace, and some pumpkins will close that morbid deal.

Another fun whiff can be a table with buckets full of chocolate bars, for a trick or treat bit and bite, or an all-black high wedding cake with dark and fantastic decorations.

And the ultimate dash- The bride and groom. Like the Corpse Bride look? You can be more subtle choosing lace, tulle, long sleeves, merged with dark and heavy, rich jewels, all will give that honorable vintage and styled wanted look. Black wedding dresses are trendy and it’s a great reason to wear one if you want the minimal touch. The Groom can be Halloweened with a puff tie, a burgundy velvet jacket, or standout cufflinks or pocket square. The extra brave brides can go with an all-black stunning look and makeup for the full macabre.  

You will surely be remembered as one of the most original couples, that are not afraid of showing their uniqueness by choosing a date like Halloween for their wedding and also owning it with appropriate style.
