Fall Wedding Inspirations and Tips

Fall wedding boardAs we enter into the month of September with summer closing down, we can be excited about at least one thing: Fall weddings are gorgeous! With fall weddings you can use rich and warm colors. A step in the rustic direction -which is a very popular trend – is never a wrong move in the fall. Plus, it is the season of change, making it the perfect choice for a wedding.

Fall Wedding Flowers

With fall weddings, your flowers can be bigger and darker with natural tones taking the lead. This is, however, a season where those popular succulent flower choices look a little less at home.

The desired look or feeling is comparable to how you would feel looking up into the bronze and gold leaves -with that hint of green – watching the sunlight trickle through. Rich reds, purples, and oranges of the burnt orange variety are great color choices when using those changing leaves as an inspiration. Also, when deciding on your wedding colors,  keep in mind that gold accents will amp up this season’s natural beauty.

For your wedding accessories, items like burlap table runners, wedding sparklers, and rustic wedding cake toppers will really fit into this season. If you are wanting to do a unity candle or sand vase as part of your ceremony, for fall, the candle is more ideal. Also, leaf designs done right can really make your fall wedding look absolutely perfect; you probably just don’t want everything to have that big maple leaf on it!

Trevor and Tori met in 2012 while attending the same church. Many of their friends instinctively knew that they would be a good match and continually tried to set them up. After a several failed attempts, they gave in to their friends’ pushing prodding. Even then they thought going on a date would be primarily a fun night out and completely social. To their surprise, they found themselves inseparable after just one date.

They were engaged in October of 2013 and had only 3 months to plan their wedding!

“Trevor took me to a John Mayer concert at the Hollywood Bowl. All night I kept having this feeling that he was going to propose. By the time the concert was over, my brain was fried from thinking he was or wasn’t going to propose. On the way home, he took me to a vantage point overlooking Orange County where a picture of us, candles, succulent flowers, and some sparkling cider was set up. He got down on one knee and BAM!”

On January 3rd of 2014 this sweet couple was married in the LDS Temple in Newport. Following the private and quiet ceremony, they proceeded to the beautiful venue of Hillcrest Terrace of Fullerton. Their gorgeous bohemian chic wedding was full of laughs,elegance, and pure joy.

Navy, Gold, and Silver: An Elegant Wedding Theme

Wedding ColorsHave you been dreaming of your wedding since you were just a little kid? Have you pictured chandeliers, fresh flowers, a full course meal, and pulling out all the wedding traditions? If this is you, then you deserve and should strive for an elegant traditional wedding. Navy, gold, and silver on their own push a wedding in a more decadent direction, but together, they are a force to be reckoned with.

What is more, is that you can manipulate this color scheme for any wedding season. Navy is a dark color, but that doesn’t mean it has to be avoided in the spring and summer. As demonstrated in the picture above with the peacock feather, you can add splashes of other bright colors and light colors to switch up the tone. This allows you some wiggle room, but keeps you in the classy zone.

Gold and silver work great together as traditional colors, but as you mix and match metals and tones, you can really create a contemporary style.  And remember, contemporary doesn’t always mean casual. You can even put an elegant twist on the fun emerging trends like photo booths with backgrounds like the one in the above collage (upper right!). Furthermore, you can keep in classy, while adding things that are unique to you and your groom, like accessorizing your canine with a navy scarf to join your bridal party. The key is the small touches.

Truly, this color scheme cannot go wrong. It can be manipulated into creating a wide range of atmospheres, while still keeping its elegant core.

The month of August is the call to summers end, much like the sunset marks the end of the day.

Having your wedding in August is a great move if you love those warm golden tones of a sunset has it hits the horizon on the dark ocean. You can still have your pop of bright colors like discussed in our blog article, The Best Summer Wedding Colors, but the warmer and dark base tones become more important than ever. By including those colors, you can concentrate on the romance of summer nights and that wonderful feeling of knowing that the summer memories will last forever.

A color combo favorite for this summertime sunset wedding is warm, but bright, colors like orange, magenta, or red matched with a light or cool color like grey, sea foam, or cream.

While summertime usually opens doors to the more spunky and quirky wedding themes and styles, the end of summer vibe often calls for more traditional or romantic styles. Look for wedding accessories like those you can find here on wedding collectibles that are inviting, simple, and romantic. These can often lead to vintage and shabby chic wedding themes.

The Best Summer Wedding Colors

When it comes to styling and decorating your wedding, one of the first decisions you are going to need to make is to choose your wedding colors. Summer can sometimes be a bit of a tricky season to pick wedding colors for, especially if you prefer a darker tone ( burgundy, dark brown, navy, etc), but the key to summer wedding colors seems to be finding a balance. In other words, choose a color scheme that will have a solid foundation – like a deep blue or purple – with a pop of something bright – like orange or teal – followed by something light – like pale yellow or sky blue. For summer, it is less about having a specific color that is the best for summer, but having the perfect color balance.

If you are planning a summer wedding, then you should take a look at these color schemes that are sure to capture the romance of summer.

Summer Wedding Colors

Photo: The Knot – New Wedding Color Combinations for 2014!

Colors: Magenta, Beige, Lime, Maroon

This is a great color palette for any warm summer night wedding. It has a great base with the maroon that is lighted up by a wedding color basic, beige, and brightened up with the pizzazz of magenta and lime. In this particular color scheme, depending on what tone of lime you choose, the lime also acts as a cool and light color. The overall effect is warm, inviting, with a touch of excitement – a.k.a romantic.

Colors: Succulent Green, Scarlet Red, Lavender

The constant for this color scheme is the warm succulent or moss green. The punch of red adds a heavier tone that is warm, powerful, and even passionate, while the lavender adds a sense of whimsy or summer breeze.

Bright Summer Wedding Colors

The Knot: New Wedding Color Combinations for 2014!

Colors: Magenta, Antique White, Tangerine, Aqua.

We love this color scheme from theknot.com for a seaside summer wedding. The antique white acts as a perfect back drop to the color pops of magenta, tangerine, and aqua. The key with working with this many bright colors is to use them in your wedding accessories as accents (To find great summer and beach themed accessories, follow the link here). For example, as pictured above the table cloth is done in the white versus it being in the bright aqua. This lets each bright color shine and add its flavor without being overwhelming and without competing with one another.

Gold Summer Wedding

Ruffled Blog: Glittery Webb Barn Wedding

Colors: Mint, Baby Pink, Gold, Fuchsia

Instead of having a dark color as your base, try using  multiple soft colors like the mint and baby pink to set the stage for your dominant fuchsia. The warm gold adds warmth and really helps bring the colors together, rather than the bright colors just jumping off the page. Plus, glitter and shimmer is always a great for a summer wedding.

4th of July Wedding Inspirations and Tips

July Wedding Ideas

Photos from Wedding Collectibles and Ruffledblog.com

July brides will be faced with the decision of themeing their wedding after independence day or avoiding it completely, and that may feel a little bit annoying. However, no matter when you get married, their will be some sort of convention or expectation in that month. For example, in her wedding feature, bride Dani indicated that she wanted bright colors for her wedding, but had to work with something warmer and darker to fit the fall season (To see Dani’s November wedding follow this link). Here is the thing, no matter what month it is or what season or holiday is around it, you get the final say – you don’t have to have a 4th of July theme or color scheme if you don’t want to.

That being said, an independence day wedding can be a lot of fun and very pretty. Plus, it cuts the worry of the color scheme out immediately.

Why Use an Independence Day Theme?

  • This theme is great for couples who are or are from families that have served in the military or are police officers or fire fighters.
  • It is also great for couples highly involved in their community or politics.
  • It is a great for the summer season, drawing on traditions of BBQs, fireworks, the joining together of people.
  • It has a simple color palette that can be tweaked easily to fit your tastes (there are about a gazillion shades of red and blue!)
  • People are more likely to have fun with it

Tips for Using This Theme

Unless you are a fan of the bright colors, it will be easier to keep the wedding theme more subtle or less like a parade threw up on it if you use warmer or softer versions of the United State’s red white and blue. Also, you can draw on more than just the literal American flag. Think about important moments in history, symbols of unity in the country, and more personal memories you have surrounding Independence day celebrations. For example, if you family always throws fire crackers on the 4th, you could give them out as your wedding favors or if you love the fireworks show, you could do a sparkler send off (Find great sparklers for your grand exit here or at The Wedding Sparkler Store). It may even be cool to throw fire crackers and have sparklers for your grand exit. If you have the budget and make the appropriate plans, you could even have actual fireworks go off! Additionally, you may want to consider keeping the dress code more casual; think summer dresses and sandals.

Everything together will unmistakably create a night of excitement.

 

Summer Wedding Inspiration Boards

Summer Wedding Inspiration Boards

Wedding inspiration boards are the bread and butter for any wedding day dreamer and the newly engaged. Pulling together an inspiration board is one of the first steps in wedding planning because it helps you establish what it is you want for your wedding. Visuals are often the best way to translate what you want to wedding planners and family. Inspiration boards can be made with the help of sites like Pinterest or from your own browsing. I would recommend not just browsing Google images because you are likely to find great images without links to the actual product or way of making it happen. Instead, check out wedding shops and stores or Pinterest where you can know where to find the things your like, that way you can make your inspiration your reality. Below are two sample summer wedding inspiration boards with products from Wedding Collectibles.

The above summer wedding is based on more of a fun summer festival theme. The suggested colors would be red, light orange, and light green (like the fruit!). The cute mr. and mrs. toasting glasses, burlap, kissing booth photo backdrop, and sparklers bring in that summer excitement and warmth; all of which can be found right here at Wedding Collectibles.

All together, they create a unique and beautiful beach summer wedding.

 

How to Create an Intimate Atmosphere at Your Wedding

How to Create an Intimate Atmosphere at Your Wedding

Whether you are having a big wedding or a small wedding, you are going to want to have an intimate atmosphere in order to amplify feelings of love and genuine happiness. Here are four suggestions to help you bring your family and friends closer together as you celebrate your new marriage.

Unplugged Wedding

  1. Personalized Name Cards If you are having place cards for assigned seats, personalize the cards to your guests. If you have a large guest list, this can be time consuming, but it may be worth it to make your guests feel special and like you wanted them specifically to be there. A personalized place card can be as simple as their name in that person’s favorite color and can even include an icon or image that represents something about them. Or, to take it even further, you can have a personalized message to them on the back or under their name.
  2. Ask everyone to unplug – We have seen rounds of weddings that have created their own wedding hashtag for their guests to link photo’s to, but now we are seeing couples opt to “ban” cell phones and social media from their wedding. The goal is to get people off their phones and pull them into the moment of the wedding. Some are even including a “phone check” (like a coat check) as a way of making it fun, but also enforcing it. By keeping everyone in the moment, your guests will become more a part of your wedding and even be a key part in building an intimate atmosphere.
  3. Use a warm color scheme – Warm colors absorb light and bring a room closer together. Even the description of warm pulls to a more intimate feeling. Warm and full of love. So choosing a warm color scheme for your wedding can definitely help you bring a closer feel to your wedding.
  4. Don’t just greet, mingle and interact – Greeting lines are great for insuring that you get face time with each of your guests, but sometimes that cane be overly formal if you want to have a more intimate vibe. Instead, or along side it, try to take a moment with each of your guests (not necessarily one on one). This can be going around to each table to greet and talk with your guests, but also includes having things like money dances or opportunities for your guests to take turns to dance with you and your groom.
