Rustic Elegance

The burlap and lace accents are already making a big impression at weddings. If you’re a fan of the rustic and shabby style, summer is the perfect opportunity for you to use this theme. Not everyone is able to have a quaint outdoor wedding in a fabulous beach, followed by a casually elegant reception in a front beach Terrace. Add some touches of antique with chandeliers and vintage wood furniture. Now it’s easier than ever to throw the rustic wedding of your dreams using items such as burlap, lace and twine. With a little creativity, you can turn ordinary, everyday items into vintage looking, rustic glam accents.



Bold Color

At the beginning of 2012, Pantone, the color authority, named Tangerine Tango as the color of the year. Summer is the perfect season to give this color a try. This orangey-peachy hue looks cool, crisp and playful when paired with aqua. For a more formal look, try pairing it with charcoal grey. A gorgeous grey dress with a bright punch of tangerine as an accent is stunning. Whether you consider this color for your bridesmaids, or perhaps your mom or his might consider it for their mother of the bride/mother of the groom outfits, one thing is for sure – this is the hot color for summer!




Letterpress Invitations

If you’re not familiar with this ancient printing technique, letterpress involves printing words or images on paper with ink, while at the same time “pressing” or debussing them into the paper. When you run your fingers over a letterpress invitation you can feel the raised lettering. Letterpress is truly an art form, with each individual letter, character and punctuation mark painstakingly set by hand by the letterpress operator. Each letterpress invitation is essentially a handmade piece of art.
