I recently wrote a short book review, and I wanted to share it here.  Enjoy!

Vintage Wedding Style – Book Review

I recently came across this colorful book, Vintage Wedding Style, by Elizabeth Demos. There is a current trend these days for vintage-inspired parties and weddings. This book covers all the bases! As a lover of all arts and crafts, I was very impressed. There are lots of great ideas in this book, from how to make paper pinwheels to converting an old dusty barn into a place to celebrate. The pictures are detailed and the directions for projects are simple and straightforward. I highly recommend browsing through this book for inspiration.  Enjoy!

Here are some editorial reviews of this book, from www.amazon.com:

Spanish Romance - An Inspiration Board

 
Ole!  Ole!  I realize that a few years back I did an inspiration board with Spanish influence, titled “La Boda – the Wedding.”  I am again inspired to create a mood board along those lines, with a more updated look.  Whereas my first board included many traditional Spanish elements, this one has more subtle nods to that grand heritage.  You can incorporate any of these into your celebration, such as a location that has Spanish architecture, or by using lots of lace details and fans or shawls for your female attendants.  Your ladies could also wear their hair in a style that would look great with a few roses tucked in the sides, or perhaps as a bride, you would like to wear a traditional mantilla comb with a veil to complement it.  Damask fabrics and paper goods have been popular for the last few years, and can provide a very stylish and sophisticated look to your event.  Enjoy!!

Plum and Persimmon Inspiration Board

 

Purple and Orange are colors typically associated with fall, or Halloween.  However, I think they make a very striking and stylish color palatte for a wedding.  You can use this for most any season, and you can change the shades of the colors to suit your needs.  For spring, you can use peach and lavender, for summer, a royal purple and coral, for the autumn and winter, shades of plum, eggplant, aubergine, rust, pumpkin and persimmon.  Your colors can be played up in your table linens, flowers, uplighting, even wedding party fashions.  The options are endless.  And of course, don’t forget the one food item that always goes well with these colors: chocolate!!  Enjoy!!
