Spring is just around the corner, and you know what that means? It’s almost wedding season – in just a few short months, it will be in full swing. Around this time of the year, we start to see the wedding labels coming in – in ever increasing numbers through the summer. These two customer labels are just the beginning, but we loved the images the couples chose and its getting us all excited for the upcoming wedding season. Make sure to order yours with plenty of time in advance – they are such a nice, fun, personal touch for your special day!
We hear from our friends in the wedding industry that they are already booking consultation appointments like crazy, which means the 2012 wedding season is already off to a brilliant start. If you got engaged over the holidays, now is the time to start thinking about what you might want your wedding to be like – unless you are one of the people that has been planning your wedding since you were a kid, and already have the details all worked out. One of the first things on a wedding check-list is to pick a date. Once that’s done, its time to send out the save-the-dates – these are the beginnings of the wedding planning process and just getting the wheels started turning.
As wedding labels come through the offices, we love to see all of the different theme and color palette ideas that our customers choose for all of their different events. There are some gorgeous combinations that we never would have thought of! One of the color palette’s we’ve been enjoying most lately is a simple green and black combination. It’s fresh, sophisticated, chic and modern.
We recently developed a major crush on JP Creatibles, an incredible custom cookie studio located in Ashburn, Virginia, where each cookie is hand-decorated by owner and designer Jen Fisher. Every order than Jen creates is one-of-a-kind because each order is completely custom designed and made-to-order. We are so impressed with her work – the cookies we have seen are like tiny little works of art – so detailed and beautiful, we can hardly believe that they are edible!
The Love Bird theme is huge in wedding trends right now, and there are plenty of fun ways to incorporate it into your event decor and design. Hang birdcages from the ceiling or tree branches, or put them on tables as centerpieces, and fill them with candles or flowers. You can string garlands of paper birds or origami birds around the venue, and top cakes with little birds in a variety of types and looks – the options are endless!
