Daily Dress: Ouma

Who doesn’t love Etsy? You can find the coolest, most creative little shops, and I found an awesome one in Ouma. Designed to “bring out the twirling princess in you,” this custom dress and skirt shop features tulle creations with hand-dyed fabrics and custom details. I am totally lovng this “Carolina” hand-dyed ombre skirt paired with a chic black top. How cute with this be for an engagement session? I love the volume and the muted shades of purple.

Featured Tablescape: Vintage Peach & Pink for Something Old Something New

It’s time for another update from the Something Old Something New event at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation! This time I get to share photos from one of the featured ceremony, escort card display, and reception designs from the Sunday bridal event, and seriously, you guys…it’s worth the wait.

With a concept designed by event designer Lemiga Events, this set-up featured a ceremony in the round, an estate reception table, and a bride-and-groom sweetheart table. The incredible letterpress programs (affixed to the back of each ceremony chair), escort cards, menus, and other stationery were custom designed by Luxe Expressions. I Do Linens designed flowing chair ties with decorative brooches, napkins with a beautiful lace detail, and peachy-pink table linens with touches of more sparkling lace.

The lush florals were designed by Le Jardin Francais, and at each table setting, guests received a mini cake by the Ritz-Carlton Lodge pastry team. Event Rentals Unlimited always has the best selection of chargers, plates, flatware, and glasses, and their vintage look additions were a hit. Soft drape by Event Drapery completed this sweet vintage-inspired wedding design. Etain Bridal Boutique loaned us gorgeous gowns for the weekend, and Jamie Howell Photography provided us with these photos of the design. Enjoy!

The escort card display was centered around a vintage birdcage.

For a real wedding, this escort table could be combined with other long tables to create a “feasting” or “king’s” table look. The pinks and peaches, the brooches, the lace…this table design is the epitome of vintage femininity.

And finally, the intimate sweetheart table for the bride and groom:

Our vendors always impress, and they went above-and-beyond for this Ritz-Carlton Lodge event. Their creativity and talent never ceases to amaze me!

Reem Acra’s Spring 2011 collection is full of pleats, floral embellishments, and feminine volume. I love this empire waist gown with soft floral embellishment on the bodice and classic silhouette, because sometimes simplicity truly is beautiful.

Winter Wedding Inspiration: Light Blue, Silver, & White

You don’t have to go overboard with stereotypical winter items when planning a winter wedding. I used the inspiration of snow shimmering in the sunlight (something we don’t see too often here in Atlanta) for this light blue, silver, and white wedding inspiration board. I brought in lots of sparkle (think glittery heels and DVF wrap dress, vintage-inspired bow brooch, and sparkling snowflake ring) with vintage flair via a Georgian-style bracelet, a decorative mirror from Z Gallerie, and a feminine cameo brooch.

When designing an inspiration board, look outside of the typical wedding magazines. Pull items that you’re drawn to, and pretty soon, you’ll start to see your personal style develop as a trend among the photos. Sites like Polyvore, which I used for this board, are great for inspiration with their galleries of furniture, makeup, clothes, jewelry, and more.

So let me know–what’s your favorite winter wedding color scheme?
