Let’s Talk Color

March 5 2014, Posted by Vicky

We’re loving 2014’s Pantone Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid! Pretty shades of purple mixed with antique golds, pinks, blues, & even splashes of green– there really is just so much to work with.  From daring floral arrangements to soft table decor and vibrant bridesmaid’s dresses to a subtle ombre tiered cake, radiant orchid can bring an instant element of romance, elegance & luxury to your special day.

In our history of wedding favorites, orchid has always been a sophisticated & classic choice, but we are excited to revamp and find new ways to play with this gorgeous and totally on-trend color.

2014, we’re ready for ya!

Eco-Friendly Weddings…

April 26 2010, Posted by Melissa + Elsa

In honor of April (Earth Month), we thought we would give you some tips on how to have a greener wedding….

Tip #1: Hold your ceremony and reception at the same venue.  You will help cut back fuel emissions since noone has to drive between the ceremony site and reception site.

Eco-friendly Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes. (You might recognize the name from The Bachelor, where Jason and Molly got married.)

Tip #2: Use recycled materials for STDs and invitations.  Also cut back on paper by directing guests to go onto your wedding website for information such as directions and registries.  Lastly, make your RSVP cards postcards, so you wouldn’t have to use additional envelopes (PLUS you’ll also save $$ on stamps!)

Eco-friendly invitation from Paper Crave.

Tip #3: Instead of favors that guests usually just end up throwing away (there, we said it), opt to give guests plant seeds. Or give donations in your guests names to charities.

Eco-friendly favors from Beau-coup.

Tip #4: Attire….. the bride can buy a preowned gown on websites such as www.preownedweddingdresses.com.  Or if her mind is set on a new dress, donate/sell the dress afterwards. Groom and groomsmen can rent their suits or tuxes.   Purchase bridesmaid dresses that the girls would wear again.  Some places even offer dress rentals for bridesmaids!

Green briday party. Dresses made from sustainable fabrics.

Tip #5: Stick to in-season flowers so florists wouldn’t have to have them shipped in from another country. Look for flowers that are Veri-Flora certified, which means the flowers aren’t drenched in chemicals or grown under harsh working conditions.  Or for the DIY-ers, make your own bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages from paper or fabric.
