One: A Winter wonderland

A classic for winter weddings for sure with icy blues, prim whites and every shade of grey. Winter wonderland weddings can be full of fantasy and magic and pretty easily accomplished with a simple color scheme, barren branches, and anything that shimmers! That may be over simplifying it, but it does tend to be the bread and butter of any winter wonderland wedding.

Two: Light and Airy Winter Wedding

Winter weddings bring with it the brisk air, cool colors, and a white blanket of change. Even if you don’t live where it snows, there is an undeniable sense that everything is just different. This theme is more of a feeling than anything. It is captured by using a pale and somewhat monochromatic wedding colors, modern accessories, and simple styling.

Three: Christmas

Not everyone celebrates the Christmas holiday and not everyone loves it, BUT for those that do, it can be the perfect touch of magic for your winter wedding. The nice thing about a Christmas theme wedding is that it really lets you play up to the idea of magic, wishes coming true, hope, giving…I could go on and on (SPOILER: I love Christmas).

One trick pony?

Plus, there are many different variations of what a Christmas wedding could look like ranging on focusing on the nativity to Christmas from different cultures to Rudolph the red nose reindeer. All of which can be done without being over done – giving you a classy, magically, pure joy filled kind of day.

Another holiday to use to bring some age old holiday magic to your wedding, New Years! This is great if you want glitz, glam, and a bit of a party-like atmosphere. And as the above picture shows, the New Years look doesn’t have to be cheap party hats and music makers (though we think those can be totally fun party favors!). What’s more is that you can only really have a new years themed wedding on or pretty dang close to New years.

Five: Cabin in the Woods

There is something warm about the sight of a log cabin, blanket by snow. It makes people think of snuggling by they fire, drinking hot chocolate, and reading their favorite book. It is the kind of image that just works well with the dream to grow old together, laughing with the grand kids running around. This makes it a perfect winter wedding theme (and venue!),

Onyx Wedding Inspiration

Breaking free from being a black and white wedding, focusing on the gemstone, onyx, your wedding will not only feel classy, but have so much more meaning behind it!

Meanings and Connections to the Onyx Gemstone for your Onyx Wedding

Onyx has a somewhat strange story behind it’s “mythical” creation: It is said that Cupid cut the fingernails from the goddess Venus while she slept, leaving the fingernail clippings in the sand. Then the fates turned them into stones. Now if your’re thinking of your grooms gross clippings left in the family room, don’t. This story shows how highly the stones were respected as coming from part of a goddess.  Another interesting little detail about Onyx is that if you dream about onyx, it is supposed to symbolize a happy life with your perfect match (aka happily ever after). It is also supposed to be a protection against dark forces and remove negativity out of your life.

The stories and meanings connected to Onyx may not be quickly seen as romantic, however starting a marriage without negativity and being each other’s perfect match in the presence of a goddess’s nail clippings (okay maybe not the nail clippings part) is pretty romantic!

Styling your Onyx Wedding

All of this aside, Onyx ( not just black! Use the stone!) creates a great texture for your decor. In order to stay away from it just being black, it is a good idea to have elements of the raw stone in your decor. Also, playing with geometric shapes can create a modern and earthy vibe. Ultimately, it is the perfect look for any contemporary couple.

An Onyx Opportunity

If you want to be truly unique, be daring at try a black wedding dress! Black wedding dresses are not just for the girl who only wears black. It is as classy and beautiful as white – maybe just don’t pair it with black eye shadow and black lipstick! Take it further and find a Grecian goddess styled gown to connect with Onyx’s Venus roots!

Ruby Wedding Inspiration

Four Things to Consider for your Ruby Wedding

Ruby Wedding Idea Board

Center of Attention or Background?

Ruby, as a gemstone and as a wedding color, is most definitely the center of attention. This means that any other colors you have aside the Ruby should be chosen to enhance its beauty and meaning. Being bold should not mean you can’t play it up.  For example, you may choose it to be a pop of color – steal drawing attention – like in the bouquet of our inspiration collage. Or, it can be dramatically center stage like in the sequin bridesmaid dresses. Ruby has a warmth to it that undercuts the hardness or loudness that can sometime accompany red.  This means you really can have Ruby sequin dress with it looking romantic and luxurious and not Vegas show girl.

Meaningful Connections

As a gemstone, Rubies are known to evoke passion and romance. According to crystalvaults.com “ruby has always been associated with love, especially faithful passionate commitment and closeness” and were in fact once thought to be the perfect wedding stone.  Really, the only thing a young couple wants more than to live happily ever after is to live passionately ever after.

Food for thought: Have you ever heard of the joke tradition to put a marble in a jar every time.. eh hem…in your first year of marriage and to take a marble out every time *cough* in the years after and even 50 years later you’ll still not have emptied the jar? So, maybe using a Ruby as the center stone of your wedding and maybe even your wedding ring will prevent that from being you!

4 Popular Wedding Cake Traditions

Wedding Cake TopperWhite dresses, flower girls, a bridal bouquet, and a speech by the best man are just a few of the many traditions that go hand and hand with the term wedding. While some couples might opt for a less traditional wedding, most brides (and grooms) have dreamt of the traditional “here comes the bride” with roses and a monogramed aisle runner. In the spirit of the traditional wedding couple, let’s take a look at some of the most popular (and most fun) wedding cake traditions!

Number One: Saving the top layer.
