Fall Wedding Flowers

by Jenny Bryde 30. August 2015 16:23

Summer sunshine is already starting to fade, and evenings are starting sooner rather than later.  What does the change in tides do to the floral selection available for wedding flowers?  When I think of fall, I think of established, full, vibrant colors of harvest.  While fall bouquets can sometimes look rustic, they don't have to be.  Today I'm presenting some of the most beautiful fall bouquet trends that have been popping up recently.  


Repeating single bloom - We usually see this style featured in other seasons, but using a bold fall jewel tone makes this a winner!

Messy and sparse - This look is all about layers.  Some of your blooms can look a little rumpled.  Harvest has just happened, right?

Wild monocromatic - Is there even such a thing?  While this bouquet features all white florals, the persona is anything but tame!

Lights and darks - This bouquet runs the gamet from the lightest white flowers to the darkest green leaves.  Throw in a pop of color, and whammo!

Let your personalities shine - Give everyone a slightly different bouquet.  Matching is so overrated!

Wedding China Picks!

by Jenny Bryde 25. August 2015 01:04

As you're completing your registry, you may be in the now-common debate over whether or not to add wedding china to your list.  Sliiiiightly impractical (unless you host a myriad of dinner parties), but oh so beautiful, wedding china sets are a favorite gift.  You definitely don't have to be boring here.  There's a pattern for every taste and color.  Here are a few of my favorite finds this week:


Aegean White by L'Objet

Balcons de Guadalquivir by Hermes


Dogwood by Lenox


June Lane by Kate Spade


Pashmina by Wedgwood

Baby Got Bustle!

by Jenny Bryde 25. August 2015 00:36


Who knew that throughout time there's been an affinity for large derrieres?  The love of a large booty spans back centuries in the form of the bustle which is often a part of today's wedding dresses.  

You have a beautiful dress that trails delicately down the aisle as you prepare to say your vows, but when you want to get your dance on at the reception, something needs to be done with that monster.  

Through a complex series of ties, buttons, hooks, and loops (and a willing participant to be your bustle buddy), you'll be able to pin up the back of your dress so that it doesn't get trashed.  Below are a few great resources for bustle how to's.  I suggest that those who have a bustle print off or book mark a set of directions and have them handy in their wedding tool kits ready to go for when it's time to get the party started!

If you're confused on which type of bustle you have, ask your bridal salon or seamstress.  They can give you a push in the right direction!
