Rest Your Dancing Feet...

Back in January I worked a wedding expo at the Seaport in Boston. Beantown Bride set up an adorable lounge with these awesome white split back sofas that were to die for!

Creating a lounge area at your reception makes it much more intimate. This is a great place for your guests to relax and take a break from dancing. It also feels very inviting!

Coco Cozy
LOVE cozy and functional
Alta Moda Bridal
lighting is huge when creating a lounge- especially when indoors 
Magnet Street

How unexpected is this lounge right at the water! Love the yellow and gray paired with the bright white. 
The Knot
This can be done so easily for a backyard wedding

What do you think of featuring a lounge area at your wedding reception??

NEWP Wedding Spectacular

I volunteered for the New England Wedding Professionals Wedding Spectacular this past Sunday and I had such a good time! I met some amazing, adorable, and excited brides (who all looked amazing in their Maggie Sottero dresses BTW). The florals were gorgeous, the gowns were amazing, the whole ambiance was reallly fun and exciting. Here are some pictures I took from the event but I have to apologize- I took my camera out and for some reason it wasn't turning on- so I had to use my iphone.

New York Fashion Week

With the conclusion of NY Fashion Week, I am feeling inspired by some pretty amazing clothing. Spring is on its way and its brining some of my favorite colors. Here is some color inspo that would fit perfectly into a late Winter/Spring wedding. 

College Fashion

This punchy citron color is so cheery and can definitely play into some fun floral choices.
College Fashion
 Tangerine is popping up all over the place after being named Pantone's color of the year. As well as being flattering on all skin types, it goes well with almost any color.
College Fashion
Coral has always been a fave but it can sometimes make you looked washed out- so this is one to be careful with. Look for corals with more orange tones that pop.
College Fashion
 Kelly green is lately becoming one of my favorite colors for spring.
College Fashion
LOVE this mint green. I can easily see any of these colors brightening up a spring wedding.

What's your favorite color trend for the Spring??

Red, White, and...PINK

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I thought it would be fitting to do a post on Cupid's colors. Lately we've been seeing lots of color-blocked frocks featuring this bright red and fuchsia. 

We've been seeing lots of celebs sporting these fuchsia and poppy colored threads.

Try to avoid the Christmas-y red and go for a more cherry color
Monique Lhuillier

Love the way this red flower pops against the peach and white flowers

Wedding Chicks
When it comes to cakes try not to make them look too Valentine's day oriented... aka avoid hearts and too much fluff. It is best to keep it simple like this cake featured above with raspberries and a rustic looking frosting.

Love the simplicity of this ombre detailed cake


Love this Poms by Pomtree. They also make them in a cherry polka dot print as well as DOZENS of other colors/prints. These are adorable to hang from a tree at an outdoor ceremony. 

This bright palette is very cheerful and can easily transition from summer to winter. 

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
