Invitations and stationary are a great place to start when planning a watercolor wedding.    There are many watercolor invitations to choose from with coordinating stationary.  If you are an artsy bride, water color invitations and other wedding stationary like escort cards and programs make great DIY projects!

An easy way to pull this theme together is to choose a watercolor inspired bridesmaid dress.  Designers are creating many watercolor dresses for 2013 in different colors and silhouettes.

Try pairing flowers in assorted shades and colors together for your wedding flowers.  Using many types of flowers helps to achieve dimension and a more “painted” look.

For the reception, a great way to incorporate the water color theme is with painted glass.  This is an easy DIY project that can be done with simple glass containers filled with paint.  Look how stunning and unique these are on the tables!

Another great way to incorporate the theme is through the cake! The possibilities are endless when designing your wedding cake.  Painted cakes will remain extremely popular in 2013 and are the perfect style for a watercolor wedding!

Fairytale Themed Wedding: Snow White

Fairytales are making a huge comeback this year showing up in television shows and movies.    With all the excitement it is no wonder that fairytales are now inspiring brides to theme their wedding after their favorite childhood story.  This year I would have to say that the hottest fairytale of them all is Snow White.

I have said this before and it applies to any theme you choose, make sure when you decide on your theme to not go overboard. Choose small subtle ways to bring your theme together with fashion and decor.  If you go too far, your theme will come off cheesy and not the fairytale you dreamed of.  Here are some ideas and inspiration to pull off a fabulous Snow White Fairytale Wedding.

If you want a fairytale wedding, you have to choose a dress that matches your whimsical theme.  Brides are not the only ones that are being inspired by fairytales, wedding dress designers are even creating gowns specifically with a certain fairytale in mind.  For a Snow White themed wedding choose a gown similar to this Alfred Angelo gown below.

Choose a hairstyle that is romantic and go for a more natural look with the makeup…but don’t forget about the red lips!

I also love the idea of pairing this gown with a capelet for the ceremony to resemble a modern version of the cape worn by Snow White.

For the bridesmaids you can go with the obvious red colored dress or choose a gray, gold or yellow dress depending on the season.

For the ceremony, I love the idea of using mirrors as a backdrop.  Get it…mirror, mirror, on the wall.  Or use mirrors as accents in the reception or on the guest tables.

Of course with a snow white theme, you can’t forget to use apples. Look how beautiful they are used in this bouquet?

And apples look great as centerpieces on the tables or as place cards for the guests.   Try pairing the apples with rustic elements found in nature like moss, leaves and branches to complete the look.

We hope these ideas have given you inspiration for creating your own fairytale wedding.

May your ending be just like Snow White….”and they lived happily ever after!”

The Best Wedding App!

While looking at some of my favorite wedding blogs (other than this one ;)) I kept reading about a wedding app designed for engaged couples. The app that everyone in the wedding industry is talking about is called Appy Couple.  I did a little of my own research and I am very excited about this unique mobile wedding app to help you share your wedding with family and friends.

The best part of this app is how easy it is to use.  You pay a setup fee and then your guests (no matter how many guests you have) can download the app for free.  Don’t worry if all of your guests don’t have a Smartphone, Appy Couple gives you a free coordinating wedding website.

I am in love with all of the designs and you can customize everything to coordinate with your wedding colors and theme. This app includes all the information guests will need for the wedding including your wedding registry, travel arrangements and things to do in the area.   The app also allows you to send instant updates, pictures, or personal messages to guests about the wedding. Guests can even RSVP to the wedding directly on the app…how cool is that??

This app is like a wedding website where you can share stories on how you and your fiance met or inspiration for theme of the wedding.  One of my favorite parts of the app is that you can update bridal party on events like luncheons and rehearsal dinner times, etc.

Check it out for yourself!! The Appy Couple is for Iphone, Ipad and Web and Android Market will be coming soon!

Happy Planning!
