Set Your Table: Black & White Bliss…

with 2 comments

…Adds Sophisticated Edge!

Before modern brides took over, the color black was left for funerals.  Today, however, brides are incorporating black into their beautiful white weddings and it’s hotter than ever!  Black and white weddings are not only classy, but sophisticated, sexy and even a little edgy too…

If you consider yourself a modern bride, consider bringing this stylish look home to your table as well.  The pairing of these colors allow you to transform your table from casual to dressy, just like white dishes do…only with a little sass

Spice it up a little with punches of color for any season or occasion, using flowerslinens or whatever else comes to mind.  Oh yes, black and white is here to stay, wouldn’t you say?  Now, how will you Set Your Table?

What is letterpress?  “The art of letterpress involves inking raised type and then impressing it directly onto the printing surface. The result is an impression that you can see and feel.” – Denise Johnson 

This gorgeous design can also be printed in the colors curry and brown!   Choose from several different pieces to complete your perfect invitation.  Want to get a feel before you order your invitations?  Get yourself a sample by clicking HERE.

Brides, if you love the look but you’re on a tighter budget, no worries.  Consider the option of printing digital instead!  Digital printing is also a faster option if you’re in a bit more of a hurry.

Rock ‘N Roll Calendar Bride ~ Miss March!

with 4 comments

Wearing Black In The Spring?  Definitely, My Dear!

I’m loving the look of Miss March from the February/March issue of Modern Bride Magazine.  Shiny black hair, super flirty black eyelashes and sexy black nail polish.  Pure awesomeness…

rock-and-roll-bridal-beauty-2

A rock ‘n roll wedding is a wedding where the couple actually acknowledge that to plan a good wedding, they have to incorporate themselves and plan what they love for their day.  They laugh in the face of the wedding industry and the wedding magazines that tell them what they need to do to make a ‘good wedding’.” ~ Kat, Rock ‘n Roll Bride

My husband and I were married in the Spring and our bridesmaids wore black.  Of course there are people that think it’s (gasp!) too “morbid” of a color, especially for a Spring wedding.  Too bad, so sad ~ we planned our wedding the way we wanted to.  Black is back, baby…and it’s here to stay.  It’s not only cool, it’s classic!

Maybe we didn’t exactly plan a “rock ‘n roll” wedding, but I’ll tell you one thing, our wedding surely rocked.  To this day we receive compliments on it!  So go on.  Do what you want to do.  Don’t let others tell you how to style your wedding, because in the end, it’s your wedding…not theirs.  Read more about the definition of a “rock ‘n roll bride” by clicking HERE.  Happy planning!
