Everyone looks better in candlelight. It’s flattering at every angle, it makes everything sparkle, and it’s easy! Many brides use votives to enhance their table decor.

True Blue Bouquet

Every bride needs something old new, borrowed and blue. These brides made their bouquets blue, and don’t we just love it! Many flowers come naturally in blue, like hydrangeas, orchids, morning glory, iris, butterfly bush, african lily, delphinium, the list goes on and on. Never fear, if your favorite flower comes in a different color, florists can make white flowers blue with a bit of die. Check out the stunning blue roses a few pictures down!

Pearls, Pearls, Pearls!

Pearls are created from a tiny grain of sand that is carefully tended until it turns into a beautiful shining pearl. Seems like there’s a metaphor for love there… Anyway pearls are a classic choice for brides to wear, might as well make it the classy choice for decor!

Should Guests Get to Lounge on Your Big Day?

Setting up lounge areas for guests to relax is becoming a popular wedding trend. Whether by the sea, by the forest, on a lake, in a ballroom, or in your living room; it makes sense to give guests a space to lounge away from the tables. Open spaces encourage mingling among guests and give older relatives a space to get their feet up.

Whether you plan on having magnificent chairs like the ones pictures below, or a simple rustic bench set, you might want to consider providing alternative seating.

Besides, what guest wouldn’t want to lounge on these magnificant chairs?
