Atlanta Wedding – Aundrea and Giles

Aundrea and Giles came to me because they needed help navigating the wedding planning process. Especially with Aundrea in medical school in Boston and Giles in Atlanta, it was extremely helpful to have a planner to stay on top of details and ensure everything ran smoothly on the wedding day.

They were blessed to have perfect spring weather for their wedding day last April. They had a church ceremony and moved to Greystone at Piedmont Park for the reception. But first, Aundrea got ready with her bridesmaids at the W Atlanta Midtown.

Tears were flowing as Aundrea made her way down the aisle. The ceremony was short and sweet but very sentimental as they said their vows.

Spring Flower Thursday! {Anemones}

Hello May! I’ve been waiting for you. After all these intense April showers, I am so excited for the May flowers. During the month of May I’ve decided to do a little spring flower series to highlight some of my favorite spring wedding flowers. So, today’s flower is Anemones! This lovely delicate flower with a striking center is the perfect focal point for your bouquet whether it be just anemones or mixed in with flowers such as baby’s breath or spray roses to add a subtle drama. And so I’ve heard, anemones are an all time favorite for some high end florists! These lovely blooms tend to appear during the Spring through Fall, meaning they are the perfect detail to add to your spring wedding coming up. Anemones come in an array of hues; from the brightest whites to the deepest reds; subtle pinks to the most breath taking blues. The design possibilities are endless with this flower. Just take a look at these stunning bouquets!

If you have love for the anemone, give a shout out!!

Destination Wedding Planner – Danielle and Kyle

I worked with Danielle and Kyle to design and plan a destination wedding at Lake Norman in North Carolina. They wanted an intimate wedding full of personalized details and one that made their guests feel considered and special. The white and sea foam green color scheme was soft and romantic, and we used black and white stripe accents to give the soft colors a pop of pattern.

Guests were greeted at the hotel with a special welcome box containing the weekend itinerary and all things special to North Carolina.

Accessorizing Your Bridesmaids

At times it can be hard bringing together the look of your bridesmaids for your wedding day. When you take into account the different personalities, sizes, and styles of your bridal party, the choices can be limitless or pretty slim. And let’s just keep it real, a trip to the bridal salon with the girls can potentially turn into a full out brawl if you’re not careful. But whether you have your bridesmaids in the same dress or different dresses, it’s the accessories that you pair with them that complete the look. Here are five ideas that will help you pair the perfect accessories to your bridesmaids’ dresses:

Bib Necklace paired with a crew neck dress

A statement bib necklace is the perfect accessory for any dress that has a crew neck. Be sure though, to not go too gaudy with the necklace that it takes away from you! Go with a classy & simple bib necklace that will complete the look of your bridesmaids.

Teardrop Earrings paired with an already embellished neckline

I love bridesmaids dresses that have embellished necklines. But depending on the feel of your wedding, you may want to add just a little more bling to your bridesmaids before you send them down the aisle. Teardrop earrings pair perfectly with necklines that already call for attention. They allow the eyes to move to the entire woman & enjoy her full beauty.

Teardrop Necklace paired with a strapless dress

There is so much you can do with a strapless dress, but my favorite jewelry trend this season is the simple teardrop pendant necklace. Feel free to go as bold or as simple as you please.

Chic Shrug paired with dress for colder weddings

For colder weddings, it’s nice to provide your bridesmaids with something to keep them warm while looking fabulous at the same time. Last fall, several designers brought back the shrug as an up-and-coming trend. Pair their dresses with a chic shrug that also coordinates perfectly with the theme of your wedding.

Unique Shoes paired with uniformed dresses

And please, oh please don’t forget about the shoes! Getting your girls into a unique pair of shoes will brighten up their uniformed attire on your wedding day. Get as creative as you would like! Patterned wedges, bold pumps with a pop of color, or embellished heels that will turn heads.

How are you planning to accessorize your bridesmaids for your wedding?
