Clients often ask us to help them decide on a color palette for their big day. We love assisting with this portion of the planning! Remember to think beyond just colors, as patterns and textures can play an important part in your overall aesthetic.

Bridesmaids' dresses. We love the look of muted, tone-on-tone bridesmaids' dresses. Not only does this compliment many body shapes and sizes, but it really makes the bridesmaids' bouquets pop!

Lace. Lace is making a comeback! Whether on the wedding dress, cake design or table linens, showcasing lace in combination with other, more modern touches can create a gorgeous look.

Pretty patterns and terrific textures. We LOVE patterns and textures! Don't be afraid to be bold. Linens with fun patterns and textures can really enhance your overall decor. La Tavola is our go-to company for gorgeous linens that are sure to make a statement! 

Hot Tips for a Cool Summer Wedding

Rachel Moore

With its glorious weather and longer daylight hours, no wonder summer is one of the busiest wedding seasons. Here are some tips to consider when diving in to plan a successful summer wedding!

Timing is everything. Photographers often refer to the "golden hour," which is about an hour or two before sunset when the light is soft, flattering and free of harsh shadows. Not only will your pictures turn out better then, but your guests will be less likely to melt in the sun. 

Always have a backup plan. Place a tent on hold or reserve an alternative indoor space in case of inclement weather. That way, you won't be scrambling to find cover if Mother Nature decides to throw an event on your big day! Having a plan B in place may cost a bit more, but peace of mind is priceless.

Consider your guests' comfort. Getting married somewhere really hot? Offer your guests cold beverages and/or fans. Provide sunscreen and/or sunglasses if you're expecting direct sunlight, or bug spray if your ceremony is in the woods. Pashminas are always a nice touch if your locale gets cooler at night. In addition to helping ensure your guests are more comfortable, these thoughtful gestures are often the details people remember.

Dress for success. There is nothing worse than sweltering in your formal wear. If you're getting married outside in a hot climate and want everyone to enjoy themselves, you might opt for more casual attire. Also consider covering metal chairs, which are a conductor of heat.

Protect your cake. News flash: cakes can melt! To prevent this from happening, ask your venue to store the cake in a refrigerator until you're ready to cut it. 

The Icing on the Cake

Rachel Moore

As some of you know, our founder/CEO Rachel Derman married Eric Moore on October 4, 2014, at The Ritz-Carlton in Dallas, Texas. It was a dreamy affair that created lasting memories for all who attended, thanks in large part to the yeoman efforts of the wonderful vendors who participated. That's why we're especially honored that The Knot chose to recently feature Rachel and Eric's wedding.

Cakes Through the Ages

Rachel Moore

Did you know that wedding cakes originated in ancient Rome? And so did the tradition of missing your betrothed’s mouth with said cake! According to a Yahoo! article, Roman marriages were “solidified by the groom smashing barley cake over his bride’s head.” (Sounds like a recipe for divorce to us!) Later, as “sugar became more plentiful in England in the 16th century,” refined sugar was used “to create pure white icing to symbolize not only the bride’s purity but the families’ affluence as well.” Click here to view this Yahoo! article, which features wedding cakes from 1947, 1951, 1952, and 1963.

Unlike in the past, today’s wedding cakes — especially groom’s cakes — are becoming increasingly more creative, delicious and downright artistic. Couples are choosing cakes that fit the theme of their wedding, like cowboy boots if they are having a ranch wedding or a football stadium if they share a favorite sports team.\
