Wedding Decor: Creative Draping Ideas

Draping is an easy way to transform a space from average to awesome! If you want to hide ugly ceilings and walls or just make a space more romantic, look at draping the space.  White or ivory draping is the most popular color and is seen at many wedding ceremonies.  Although I still love the classic white draping, you can choose colored draping for a modern look.  Take a look at this pale peach draping for a twist on the traditional white used to accentuate the doors in to the ceremony location.

Don’t be afraid of color for the ceremony! I love this bold yellow paired paired with white to soften such a bright color.

Of course draping is gorgeous for the cocktail hour and reception as well as the ceremony.  I love the colored draping to transform your venue in to a modern atmosphere.

Tents can be boring but with draping you can enjoy the outdoors in a beautiful environment.  As an added tip make sure to add beautiful lighting to complete the space.

Do you love this colored draping?  Or do you prefer the classic white draping?

We would love to hear your thoughts!

Five Fun Photos to Take with Your Bridesmaids

I think most of us can agree that photography is very important on your wedding day.  You want pictures you can look back on for years to come and although you need the posed photographs it is always fun to think of some creative shots to take.  The majority of your wedding day will be spent with your bridesmaids and you want to make sure your photographs capture not only your faces but your personalities!  Here are five fun pictures that we think every bride should have of her and her maids.

Most of your wedding day will consist of you and your girls getting ready and I love capturing the casual moments before the ceremony begins.  How cute is this photo with all of the girls laying down in a circle and capturing a closeup of their faces?

You can even propose a toast with all of your girls while you are getting ready and capture the moment.  I love how they are all wearing the same thing!

My favorite idea for pictures is to have your bridesmaids take a picture with how they first met you! LOVE this!

Use props! Be silly and have fun with your girls to lighten the mood before the ceremony.  Consider balloons, parasols, photo booth props, etc to take pictures with.
