D.I.Y. wedding programs by Hello Tenfold

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

Doesn’t it always feel like ceremony programs are The. Last. thing on the agenda with so many other things taking up your time in the weeks leading to your wedding day? Ellie (of Mint fame) offers the prettiest, modern D.I.Y. ceremony programs at her shop, Hello Tenfold, making this chore totally easy and something worth looking forward to! So, here’s the deal…just submit your text, color + pattern choices, and font preferences to Hello Tenfold, and they will deliver printed pages that are trimmed and hole punched. When the pages arrive, couples purchase the ribbon and gather some friends around to assemble. Simple, easy and pretty! If tying isn’t your thing, you can upgrade to the “full version” where your programs will come fully assembled and ready to go. Thanks for sharing Ellie!

Dessert Receptions

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

One of the questions I hear most from brides and grooms is how to cut the budget. Of course we all know the #1 way to cut you budget is by cutting your guest list. But there are other ways to get creative….one of them is a cocktail and dessert reception.

Cocktail and dessert receptions are really lovely in the early afternoon. Consider hiring a jazz quartet and serving a nice selection of white wine and prosecco. Dance the afternoon away and ask friends to meet you later in the evening for an after party.

Doily inspiration

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

I love the look of doilies whether they’re inspiring fashion, favors, table design or place cards. They’re beautiful in all seasons, but they’re especially pretty for winter soirees!

wardrobe redux at anthropologie

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Tammy Keefer just sent these beautiful images from the Wardrobe Redux event, organized by Merriment Events, at Anthropologie last Sunday. It was so much fun hanging out with Tammy + the Anthro girls, looking at all of the new things that are coming in for holiday. I definitely have my eye on this, this and this. Shoppers shopped the night away, sangria in hand. They enjoyed tapas, beautiful flowers by Janie Medley and yummy cupcakes by Two Sweet.

I met Sam Walls of Samuelle Couture at the B List event last year in Brooklyn and was immediately taken with her designs. All of her gowns are custom designed, and I think you’ll see she has an heirloom aesthetic with a modern twist, which I love. Sam was kind enough to send a few images over to little white book. I hope you enjoy! Brooklyn Bride also recently interviewed Sam on the process of creating a custom gown for WE Go Bridal. Be sure to check out her post!

There will be cocktails and appetizers, beautiful flowers by Janie Medley and photography by Tammy Keefer. r.s.v.p. by calling Anthropologie (804.330.3331) by October 21st. Hope to see you there!

Old School

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

I was really inspired by the Ivy League style spread in the new Lonny Magazine and thought it would be fun to do a little “old school” inspiration today…think vintage varsity letters, plaid, pewter and brass trophies….
