Love Vs. Design is an awesome one stop shop for all your printed party & wedding collateral needs. They initially caught my eye with their beautiful hand lettering and illustrative designs- which I'm a total sucker for. I also highly recommend checking out their BLOG for beautiful free printables like Wine Tags and Thank You Cards!
Morgan and Seth love black, red, skulls and anything a little rock 'n' roll. They also happen to be my close friends who are getting married in May! Keeping this in mind, I knew designing their wedding invitations was going to be a blast. We wanted the invites to be a little dark, romantic, edgy and slightly playful... just like them.
Here's what we came up with... Along with a formal invitation, guests got a "ticket" to the show, a "flyer" for the reception, and a timeline of events. I'm so happy with how it turned out! A big congrats to them!
Wonderful News!! One of my closest friends is getting married and has asked me to be a bridesmaid and help with the wedding decor! I'm so thrilled and honored... Not only do I get to be apart of the most important day of her life, I also get to help PLAN A WEDDING! Eek! This has been a secret wish of mine for the longest time... I guess the strange thing is, I would rather plan someone else's wedding than my own. Most people can settle on the theme/colors. I, on the other hand, have trouble deciding on what color I want my hair, so how could I possibly pick colors for my own wedding?! I'm hoping this might bring some inspiration for any *ehem* future wedding planning I might have to do :)
I've decided to start researching flowers and bouquets, so my first stop for inspiration is Bows & Arrows. Here you'll find some of the most beautiful and unique floral arrangements you can imagine. I really love the way long succulents are used in the bouquet from this photoshoot, giving it a strong yet organic shape. The centerpieces for this wedding are quite lovely as well... And perfect for a Fall wedding!
THIS DIY Heart of String from the site Green Wedding Shoes is one of those pieces that, as soon as I saw it, my jaw dropped. It's such a simple idea, yet it makes an incredible statement! The piece pictured here was intended for a wedding reception, but I would hang it up on a wall in a heart beat. I really love the color too! And it's only $35 to make? Sold!!
Here's a sneak peak into one of the projects I've been working on. It's a Logo and Save the Date design I've been working on for my friend who's getting married in May! She wanted to keep it simple, natural- and incorporate one of those adorable photobooth strips we've been seeing everywhere! Here's what we've come up with so far...
I couldn't have planned a more wonderful party last night. I spent a warm Summer's evening enjoying sangria's, tapas, laughs and memories at a friends bridal shower under the stars. It was just beautiful. The bride to-be was glowing from head to toe and her joy was absolutely contagious. So of course my mind is still lingering on that this morning- actually inspiring today's post. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share my favorite event inspiration site called BHLDN. It provides viewers an extensive gallery of inspirational images that you can use to create your own mood boards. Whatever style you have in mind for an event- they've got a creative solution for that! Take a look at some of these dreamy snapshots that are sure to get your creative juices flowing! LOVE LOVE LOVE.
This may be my favorite invitation idea. Ever. These record designs were created by the adorable husband and wife team of etsy shop Ello There. It appears these designs have just been made to look like actual records, but I would venture out to even find some real vintage LPs for my invitations (about $1 each at thrift stores- why not?) What a nice keepsake that would be for those attending your event!
